This week has been awesome, and much needed. I've been successfully in my ranges and getting LOTS and LOTS of protein. My nutrition is right back on track, and I have been successfully in the middle of the road every day. I don't forsee any problems coming up this weekend, either.
I did not get in my core workout yesterday because my back was ungodly sore from Zumba. I am a chesty broad, and there were many jumps. Next week I'll wear more support. All that means, though, is that I'll do my core exercises when I get home from work today before I jump on my bike. I'm NOT going to skip out on it!
We may go to C's mom's house to stay this weekend. If that's the case, I might have to reschedule or retune my planned work outs. The plan is Pilates and 30 minutes on the bike every Saturday morning. Instead, I might just do a short ST session (C and I at least get our own room when we stay there) with dumbells and then a few Pilates poses. For cardio, I can ALWAYS go for a walk! They have a treadmill as well, though, so I may do a bit of jogging. But again, NO WAY will I skip working out. Change in plans, totally fine. Skipping, totally NOT fine.
I didn't lose any weight this week, but I think that's rather expected because of all the muscle destruction/rebuilding leading to water retention and then just general body composition changes. I'd like to say it doesn't bother me, buuuuut I was hoping for a loss this week anyway. Ah well, like I've been saying - this new program and attitude is all about what I can DO, not what I weigh!
