Hello Friends. Happy May and Happy Monday. We get a double whammy. The past few weeks have been pretty gorgeous with such warm weather. Then today for the first day of May the sun isn't shining and has been raining most of the day. I know rain brings flowers, but can it only rain overnight, that would be great.
I have a confession. I have been a stay at home mom now for 3 weeks. I had all these wonderful intentions of getting back to a routine with myself, doing so much fun things with the kids everyday, doing crafts, finishing the basement, having a spotless house.... I have to admit most of this hasn't happened. Now I haven't been a lazy bum though either. My kids are keeping me busy, Brian has been working a lot, and we have been doing a lot of stuff around the house, enjoying the weather, and also making lots memories.
Here comes the hard part for me to say. I am a health and fitness coach, I am supposed to be "perfect" WRONG!!! I am human. I lose motivation. I fall off track. I am far from perfect. It really hit me the other day when I went to put on a pair of shorts that fit on Easter and now are to snug to wear comfortably. I have been slacking with doing workouts consistently and haven't stuck to a program, when I do workout I just jump around. My nutrition has also been lacking. Lots of snacking, lots of garbage, and man have I been feeling it. For the past week I have been having horrible stomach pains and gas (sorry tmi). These are both huge indicators that I am eating foods that my body doesn't agree with.
I am ready and motivated to get back on track with my own health and fitness journey.
I weighed myself this morning. I weigh the most that I have in months. I know the scale is the worst for seeing real results, I also took my measurements and some photos to compare in the next few weeks.
I woke up this morning at 7. Instead of rolling back over and going back to sleep until Austin woke up or sitting on the couch watching Insta-stories or Snapchat, I went downstairs and got my workout done. I started and am committed to doing this 90 program that involves weights. (it is a Beachbody program) The past few programs and random Beachbody on Demand workouts I haven't done any weight, mostly cardio.
I am also participating in a Beta Test. It is a completely different outlook from your normal weight loss or diet program. It really is an amazing total body health transformation. Its not all about eat this and not that, eat at this time, count these calories, ... It really is about learning about your own body, what works and what work for you and reason why. (such as I can't have ice cream, or diary milk but you probably can) Because of this Beta test, I am limiting sharing what I am eating and my meal plan since everyone is different. I will still be continuing drinking my Shakeology every day, for me it is a non-negotiable.
I still haven't decided if I am going to continue sharing my health and fitness journey over here, or take it back to my fitness blog, that I haven't done much posting on lately. I will be sure to post here if I do decide to move it back over.
Here are my goals for the month involving my own personal health and fitness journey,
1- Refocus on my nutrition
2- Workout 5 days a week, per this programs calendar
3- Start my Miracle Morning
Time for the New Me to begin. Time to start loving the skin I am in again. You have to love yourself before you expect anyone to love you.
