Happy Monday! Time to restart my goals (: I’m excited to announce that I signed up for the dietbet challenge! Yee-haw! I’d never even heard of it, but since Jamie Eason was hosting, I signed up! I did pretty crappy on my Oxygen Challenge so I’m redeeming myself. I like it because it’s only 4 weeks. It started today and will finish on Nov. 22. She’s already posted workouts and meal plans. Check it out HERE!
I really wasn’t doing it for the money, I just like to win! You pay $30 bucks and then if you lose 4% of your body weight you win your money back by splitting the pot with everyone else who won. I actually already got my money back because they gave me an MVP shoutout for inviting so many people to join (: I got an email from Jamie and she told me to pick out whatever I wanted from her supplement line, so I’ll be getting some protein powder in the mail! Yippee!
Then, to add extra lbs. to my weight loss, I decided to sweeten up the weekend! Yes, I gained 6 lbs. Ha ha! That should be gone by the end of the week though and then I’ll still have 3 weeks to lean out. Eating treats is fun, and I did it on purpose, but I am NOT a happy camper after too much indulgence. I’m actually pretty mad at myself. This will be a pay back week, which I love anyway!! I like to be on top of my game and sometimes I get a little caught up in perfectionism, not so good really!
Today started out great with a 6 mile run with my friends which I can’t keep up with anymore!! I would be putting in many CRYING emojis here if I knew how!! My goal for running will be to run 3 times a week. One will be with my friends (they push me) and one will be with myself staring at my Garmin so I run faster, and the third will be whatever, treadmill work or another solo run. I got a new tank today that made me feel pretty cool from one of my favorite fitness gals! I think she’s detoxing right now too because she just gave a schpill on being perfect and a cool green detox drink! Her body is my goal and I love her motivational words.
And here I am in her way cute tank! It’s a symbol of a track in the shape of an A. I just finished my weight workout with my friends and I’m eating one of my favorite post workout snacks. A vanilla or coconut yogurt with a spoonful of cocoa powder in it! When I got my tank in the mail she even wrote a cute little personalized thank you on the receipt! Excuse the dirty mirrors. Right after this I will be turning on Maroon 5 Pandora and cleaning the bathrooms. I need to get to the yard too. I better get moving!
This will be a great week! Keep it simple. This is what I’ll be focusing on in my diet right now!
I’m also going to try Amber’s detox drink (: The ingredients are: spinach, kale, celery, parsley, cucumber, romaine, and lemon. My mouth is watering! (: I did feel a cold coming on this morning so I’ll be doing this for sure!
My backyard sounds like it has dinosaurs walking around! We have some excavating and placements of HUGE rocks goin’ on! YAY!! I’ll have to post pictures of that too! I’ll be back towards the end of the week with an update on my weight loss and more hard core stick to it no matter what words of wisdom! Thanks for listening to the rambling! Work Hard Forever. Always…(:
