I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I am linking up with Gina for Slim Down Saturday to share my weight loss progress.
I’m still not completely recovered from my cold, but I am feeling better than last week. The congestion prevented me from doing a lot of cardio this week, but I focused on eating clean and keeping up with the strength parts of the Tone It Up workout plan. I am happy to say that I have been completely gluten-free and dairy-free since January 1st. I have noticed a huge difference in how I feel, and the scale is definitely showing the difference too. I’m amazed that I have hit the 10 pound mark already, but I have worked hard every day. I am here to answer any questions or give any tips to help others achieve the results they want.
Something to Do Better:
I have been wearing a Misfit Flash (cheaper version of a Fit Bit) since Christmas and have noticed that my sleep is pretty horrible. I am restless for a quarter to a half of the time I am asleep. I’m not sure why I am so restless because I don’t remember waking up or tossing and turning most of the time. I am going to try a nighttime routine to try and wind down and hopefully sleep more soundly.
Last Week’s Goal:
My husband ended up having to go out of town for business, so my meal plan didn’t really happen. I can eat the same thing several nights in my row, unlike my husband. I did try two new recipes though:
- I also made curry tofu with zucchini noodles….yum!
I can’t believe how much cauliflower and zucchini I have been eating recently. I would never buy them before, but I am loving how versatile they can be.
This Week’s Goal:
I have been doing much better with the strength and yoga parts of the Tone It Up workout plan, but have skipped or modified a lot of the cardio parts. This week, I want to up my cardio, so I will run and go to spin class two times each. I love the endorphins that I get from a good sweat session, so this should be awesome!
As I continue to make healthy changes in my lifestyle, I need to focus my energy on building new healthy habits instead of fighting the old unhealthy habits.
