Wow, what a busy past couple weeks it has been! I’ve really amped up my workouts and have been to the gym 14 out of the past 18 days so I’m feeling great in that department! Hubby is home for awhile so it’s been nice having him helping around the house and with the kiddos and I’ve been back to work as well! This, while is super exciting because I LOVE my job, has been a huge adjustment for all of us. Since right now I only go to classes at the gym (that way I get the most out of my hour!) it’s making gym planning a lot more interesting, but I’ve still managed to pull it off! It’s been hard to go to work and then go to the gym and spend more time away from my babies, because all I really want to do is rush home and squeeze them! I force myself to do it because I owe myself and them more time together in the future. I have a whole new respect for people who work outside the home and are struggling with me on this road to health, you guys are my new heroes!
Last week I was up 2 pounds which was disappointing but I was still really sore when I did my weigh in , so I’m going to chalk it up for water retention in my muscles. However, I stayed the same this week, which I guess is better then a gain but I really would like to see the scale heading in the right direction next Tuesday! Although I did do my measurements last week and was quite excited with the numbers I was seeing! I’ve lost 34 inches! That’s almost 3 feet of fat off my body (say what!?) So even though I’d like to be able to update negative numbers into my side widget —> I am forcing myself to not just focus on the number but rather on the fact that I’m feeling stronger, healthier and have much more energy and am noticing such a difference in myself then when I first started classes. Last Sunday I went to Zumba then directly after I stayed for a Body Combat class and I not only did I not die, but the instructor asked me how many classes I had been to previously, because I rocked it out, This fat girls got game! 🙂
So this week I shall focus on getting used to planning my work outs and meals with my wonderful job and evolving on this journey a little more each day.
