I only have 74 days until our big trip to California. We are staying on a Beach House for an entire week with a ton of our extended family on both my side and my husbands side. I have been working towards this for almost a year!! I can't believe it is only a little over 2 months until our trip!
The one thing I have been working the past year is consistency. I have gotten better, though there is always room for improvement!! I have been doing ChalenExtreme about 4x/week and walking/running on the treadmill for 5-6x/week. I am doing the 5K Your Way Rookie Runners guide through SparkPeople and am on week 3. I am amazed at how easily I am adapting to it and how by the end of the week I am upping my speed on my runs. I feel so strong when I am done! I also want to try Yoga. But it is really hard to fit that in to my schedule at the appropriate times with the kid's schedules.
My eating is what is getting me. I do really good for the first part of the day. I always start out with a Shakeology for breakfast. It really does give me the energy I need for the morning and helps curb my hunger for the morning. What is really getting me is the kids being home for summer. I make them their lunch and then it is so easy to just eat whatever they are eating! I think my new plan is to just have another Shakeology for lunch. I know exactly what I am consuming and it is super quick and easy. I can mix it up while I am making the kid's their lunch. I am getting a lot better with salads and stuff for supper and really watching my portions. I already drink a ton of water everyday, maybe too much! And I am down to only one Diet Dr. Pepper a day, for the most part. There are days here and there where I might have two. Ohh, I love my Diet Dr. Pepper!!!
My body is closer to what I want for my vacation, though lots of room for improvement still. My hope is to be able to where a bikini...SO NOT there yet!
The crazy thing is that through all this, the scale has not budged!! But I know that I am toning at the same time and the way my body feels and they way I fit into my clothes means so much more to me than a number on the scale!
Happy Monday to everyone. I hope you got that workout in today!!
