I was discouraged with a gain last week, so I didn’t end up linking up. I am back this week to link up with Gina for Slim Down Saturday to share my progress.
Over the past two weeks, I have lost one pound. I definitely hit a plateau last week. I decided to up my cardio and it seems to have worked. I still haven’t figured out how to get a restful night’s sleep, but there have been a few nights where I slept for a solid chunk of time.
Something to Do Better:
I love taking body pump and completing other toning workouts at home, but I hate being sore afterwards. This leads me to go easy on the weight sometimes. This week I want to challenge myself and up the weight during these toning workouts.
This Week’s Goal:
The Tone It Up girls are encouraging all participants to complete their 7-Day Slim Down (7DSD) this week. The meal plan isn’t too different from what I’ve been doing except there’s no bread or starches in the morning. I also have to limit the salt that I use while cooking. I hope that it will all be worth it come Valentine’s Day. In conjunction with meal plan, there are two-a-day workouts to complete. Cardio after teaching all day is a struggle, but I plan to stick with it.
I went with another quote that makes me laugh yet it is so true. If I suck it up and make time to exercise now, I won’t be trying to squeeze into clothes that are too tight.
Good luck this week and try your best to avoid all the Valentine's Day candies and treats.
