No matter how good I seem to be during the week, it always goes to hell without my routine, on the weekends. This weekend was different though, this weekend I stayed on course!
I managed to keep any cravings at bay, and I didn’t emotionally eat/eat out of boredom ONCE. I also drank a lot more water than I usually do on the weekends.
I also managed to get to bed at a more reasonable hour than I usually do when I don’t have to worry about work the next day.
I was successful in my new goal to work out on Saturday as well as (hopefully) once during the week. Actually, I kicked the crap out of that goal! I did my kickboxing DVD on Tuesday, I went to my aquasize class on Wednesday, then I did my kickboxing DVD again on Saturday. I followed that up with painting my entire living room and sanding and painting a couple of pieces of furniture today.
Every muscle in my body aches tonight… my legs hurt, my back hurts, my abs are freaking killing me, even my hamstrings and my butt hurt. It’s all a good hurt, though! (Though I admit, I’ll probably take an Advil before crawling into bed tonight!)
What I’m even more proud of this week- is the number on the scale. I weighed in on Friday and I was the same weight as I was the Friday before (-7lbs), which is actually a huge feat because Aunt Flo showed up Saturday morning (if you catch my drift) and I always gain between 5-10lbs every time she’s in town! This week, I didn’t! I’m hoping that in a few days once she leaves, an even better number will be reflected on the scale… and if not then I’m okay with that too. After all, it’s all about developing better habits, right?
Just a reminder that most of the posts being published lately are “re-posts” from my private blog, so they are posts I’ve written over the past couple of months, and don’t necessarily reflect *today*. Those posts have “Re-Post:” in front of the title, so you know which ones are current and which aren’t.
