It is Follow Through Friday. Yippee! So head over to one of these lovely ladies pages, grab the button and link up if you want to.
Monday-Wednesday I stuck to my low carb and high protein. I didn’t drink any sodas or candy bars or cookies. Even while my coworkers were eating tostada’s, which is my favorite lunch day, I stayed strong with my tuna and cheese. But then Thursday happened. We had a pot luck at work, I made chicken enchiladas and cupcakes. Resisted eating the cupcakes Wednesday night but then all that food was laid out Thursday and there went my good week of eating. I ate 2 plates of nachos, whew wee. No wonder I didn’t want dinner last night. So as punishment I went to the grocery store after work and stocked the fridge with healthy food again. We will just consider Thursday my cheat day!
Work It Out…
On Monday I did a full body Kettle-bell workout because I freaking LOVE my kettle-bell. I just turned on some trashy TV (Keeping Up With The Kardashians, don’t judge) and got my kettle-bell on.
On Tuesday the Arya dog and I went for a run/walk.
I did great actually. I ran more than I walked. My back didn’t hurt as bad and I contribute that to the core workouts I have been doing, as well as the yoga. I would have walk/ran longer but Arya kept getting distracted by cats, dogs and people, so I only did a little over a mile because I couldn’t keep fighting her on a leash.
I went home after my walk/run and worked my arms/shoulders. I just pulled out my stability ball and hand weights while watching the State of the Union.
On Wednesday I was feeling a bit tired and run down. Plus it finally rained. Exciting for those of us in a drought over here (lucky bums that have snow). So I cancelled my walk/run and just whipped out a booty, back fat and ab workout instead.
Last night (Thursday) I had MASS errands to run. Human food, dog food, money orders, toilet paper, you know adult crap. So I didn’t arrive home in time to work out which of course makes me super sad because tonight I have plans. I was thinking maybe I could squeeze in a workout before leaving to meet a friend BUT I know I don’t have enough time.
Saturday and Sunday I have vet appointments, doctor appointments, a Super Bowl and about a billion more errands to run but I am determined to get in at least one more walk/run this week and some more strength training.
As for yoga, I didn’t make it to any classes this week, which I knew I wouldn’t but I did do 20 minutes of yoga at home Monday-Wednesday after each one of my workouts. I am already seeing a lot of improvement in my core, balance and how tight I feel after a long day sitting at a desk.
Goals For Next Week…
- Workout all 6 days with 1 rest day;
- Stick to my eating plan and PREP MY LUNCHES for the next week;
- Find more kettle-bell workouts;
- Make it to yoga class;
- Stay positive; and,
- Leash train my running buddy.
So how did you do this week?
