Moving Along

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Well, I've slipped up in my quest to consume no wheat. Not a complete slide, just a little bite or drink here and there. (Guinness was involved, my friends!). I did feel a little snius-y and I definitely detected some pain in my knee joints in the following days - but nothing terrible. Back on the wagon now!

My exercise has mostly consisted of using the baby as a medicine ball (Oh the giggles when you toss her in the air or swoosh her side to side - ab work! - when holding her! I also hold her and do squats. :)), but last night I popped in my hip hop hustle DVD and did that for a bit, definitely fun. Still definitely lacking a plan here though. Need to get on that.

I've also been slipping with my A+ meal planning lately, but I HAVE been consistent with (relatively) healthy, fast backup options (like a microwaveable sweet potato, the bags of pre-cooked chicken, or an Amy's frozen meal).

So things are moving along. I think I'm down about another pound, which is good, but I still need to put more focus and energy on stepping things up.

For May I joined a 5% challenge so hopefully this will commit me to logging into SparkPeople (even on weekends!) and logging food and fitness minutes. I expect this will be the push I need to really get going. Wish me luck!

I hope everyone is doing well and is excited to hop into May goals!

    You are doing it! Making the effort is what counts and you are.

    As a not-great student, I think A-pluses are overrated. :) What's wrong with an A-minus or even B+? Or how about just a thumbs up? LOL emoticon

    Welcome to the 5% Challenge! The Winter into Spring was my first time doing the 5% challenge and it was awesome. I had started the year off planning to do the January Jump Start Challenge and then didn't do anything at all. I was really struggling with a lack of motivation to get up and move. Now I move everyday and am on a 58 day streak right now and the 5% Challenge and my team are the ones that motivated me to get up and do it!!!!!

Have fun along the way!!
