(You know you are addicted to twitter when you start to write #mv for you blog title. lol)
Anyway, maybe you are thinking "why I'm back?" Last week I said I was ready to RE-commit to Fit and this week I feel myself getting back into a good groove. It is so inspiring to me to see people like Jared and Leah saying "hey I need to get back to where I need to be." I have struggled for a few weeks to figure out how to balance being a work at home mom and getting to the gym. This week I have just decided that gym time HAS to be a priority and I WILL make it work.
To show my commitment I am also going to start weighing in every other week, and that starts today. I haven't weighed in for some time and I had a feeling I wasn't going to like what I saw but I did it anyway. I am at 159 (up 4 lbs from 155). I wasn't eating right, snacking too much and making bad choices along with not working out like I should. I EARNED that gain and now it is time to EARN my Loss.
Yesterday I did my first Kettlebell work out and WHOA was it great! I feel it in my back and inner thighs today, that is a GOOD feeling.I am not sure if Kettlebell workouts count as cardio but MAN Do they make you sweat. lol Today I got to the gym early (5:20 and did 25 min of cardio and 35 min of cardio weight training). I call it cardio weight training because I am already hot from my treadmill time and boy do I sweat more during my weight training time. Plus I really try to do the movements quickly (but safely don't get me wrong) I don't take breaks between sets and I try to keep my heart rate up.
I am getting back to menu planning and semi-journaling. I am not very good at either but I can see that I need to hold myself more accountable during the day. So I am making the effort.
Definitely working to get more water in during the day, and doing pretty good with that most days.
Congrats to all the sistas applying to the mv mom campaign. It is tough to sit (wait I hope you aren't just sitting around there is no time for that) and wait to see who will be a finalist and then the final 2 but you all deserve the spot and I can't wait to see how you do. And then get to watch the rest you all kick booty in the Move It and Lose It challenge. Congrats also to Amanda @beeacutie2. She is such a doll and so sweet always having positive things to say to everyone.
