I had a great weekend. It was full of good friends and the best part is, I stayed 100% on plan all weekend! I love it!
I dropped another 2 lbs this week, making my total loss 10 lbs in 6 weeks since I started the comp diet. I am down 30 lbs since last August which makes me 14 pounds less than I was before I got pregnant with my son. SO EXCITED! I have 5 more pounds to go to get to my June 5 goal. I am totally going to blast right by it!
I emailed with my diet coach and he said that as long as I keep my diet on plan and get those workouts in, I will most likely make my August 14 goal for the competition. This was extremely encouraging. I was starting to feel, due to my slip-up last week while being sick, I wasn’t going to make it. I’ve had a TON of negative self-talk like “what the hell am I doing?” “I’ll never make it” “I’ll never belong with those girls” “I am just a fat girl.” But after some soul-searching and advice from friends, I have decided to put that thinking aside and fake it till I make it! I know I’m not going to look like the girls who are super lean and fit, because this is the beginning of my journey, I just want to be proud of ME. Not in comparison to anyone else. That’s the plan.
So anyway, I got in a really great workout on Sunday. Quads, calves, core and biceps. Oh momma were my biceps burning!! It’s been a long time since I’ve done legs at the gym (instead of the home gym), and I attempted the leg press. The leg press machines at my gym are weird… where was the regular one?! I was looking for this:
… but they only had a weird one. I can’t even find a picture of it because I don’t know what it’s called. Stupid 24 Hour Fitness and their fancy machines. Sometimes a girl just needs the oldie but goodies!
I finished off my workout with 10 minutes on the stair mill. Not long, but I had to be done by 4 to go pick up some new furniture for my little guy. I did burn 404 calories while at the gym for 60 minutes, so that’s awesome!
Then this morning at camp I designed a pretty intense cardio/leg day for my girls. I got to participate with them and got in a great workout already!
Here’s my plan for the rest of the week:
Tuesday– Shoulders/Chest/Triceps/Core + 45 minute stoller walk
Wednesday– 30 minutes in the stair mill right after camp (going to try this, see if it works timing-wise)
Thursday– Back/Hamstrings/Core + going to the zoo w/ the little guy so I’ll be walking a lot
Friday– 45 minutes on the elliptical or treadmill (whatever I’m feeling that day, maybe a little of each)
Saturday– Rest Day – my baby’s first birthday party!!!
Sunday– Quads/Calves/Biceps/Core + 45 minutes pyramid cardio (it will be tough to get this workout in, need to be up early to accomplish before the day’s mother’s day activities begin).
I’m working from home this morning, then off to my last day at work!!! So excited for the changes in my life. I feel like I am becoming a totally new person and it feels wonderful!
