Four days until France! Am I getting annoying yet? I still can’t believe it! I think it won’t hit me until I’m in the plane with my sister by my side <3
You’ll be happy to know that I have stuck to my eating/workout plan all week (and continuing to – woohoo)! I can certainly feel myself shrinking this week. I don’t know if I mentioned it but I will no longer be weigh-ing in. People will look at this differently. But I want to eventually lose weight and maintain my weightloss without looking at a number. Why? Because I don’t want to ever place such an importance on a number. I mean, why do we even do it? We gain one pound and we feel awful, even if we feel amazing! The scale would honestly dictate my mood – ENOUGH!
I know I don’t look exactly like I did when I auditioned for the DVD – I definitely gained a bit and I noticed it 3 weeks ago. So what did I do? I re-evaluated. I noticed that my workouts weren’t as intense as they have been and I started to snack a bit more. I wasn’t in any means in a “free for all” state of mind but I certainly enjoyed some wine and fro-yo.
I’m happy to say that in the last week and a half, I did a complete 180. I stopped mindless snacking and I planned my workouts for 2 weeks and stuck to them. And guess what happened….I saw results! My arms (which is where I gain weight first) started to slim down again and my stomach slowly went down. Hurray! I know I can get myself to my goals without using the scale. I’m going to continue with my measurements and how I look. I mean would you rather look good or be at a certain number just for the heck of it?
Just like I lost my weight without calorie counting (oh happy day), I know I can get to my ultimate body goal without weighing in. I can honestly say that I love my body NOW but for the DVD (which is in November) I know I need to lose fat and tone up! It’s a once in a life time opportunity and I want to make sure, at the end of the day, that I did everything I could to look the best I can!
Moving on to this morning, I did NOT want to go running BUT I scheduled a run on my calendar and that meant I couldn’t skip it. So I looked over to my couch (where I lay my running outfit), sleepily changed and was out the door.
As I work half days on most Mondays, I had the pleasure to meet with a fellow Fitfluential friend, Morgan. We had originally planned to meet for coffee but decided to have an early lunch at Aroma instead. Morgan was hungry for lunch and I happily obliged.
Work flew by today! I’m incredibly busy this week, trying to get lots done before Friday. I have a feeling my whole week will fly by….I’m not complaining!
Before I head off for my evening workout, let’s schedule this week’s workout schedule shall we?
Monday- Morning run and Workout DVD
Tuesday – Morning run and Upper Body Blast (weights and body weight workout)
Wednesday – Morning run and Workout DVD
Thursday – Morning run and Workout DVD
Friday – Morning run and Kickboxing with my mom!
Saturday – Morning run with my sister
Again, these runs are only 15-20 minutes depending the route I decide to take. I am honestly loving them:)
Alright, it’s time to workout while watching The Bachelorette
