It was a success in many ways! Not only did I lose about 5lbs, but I also was able to stay on track with the meal plan I gave myself, have great workouts and cut out all unnecessary snacking! I have to admit the challenge was not easy for me. Chicken and spinach three nights in a row is a nightmare. So gross. Last night I ended up eating chicken, fat free refried beans and salsa instead. I just COULD NOT stomach another chicken and spinach night. Woof.
The challenge was as hard as I expected. I went to bed hungry every night, which is ok I guess. I know that my eating habits were out of control for awhile so I needed to train my stomach and mind to be full after eating an appropriate serving size. I think it has worked. I drank a lot of water to make up for the smaller serving sizes, that made for a good combo. Here is a little break down of my week.
Ok now on to the "serious" crap:
|My dinner Monday-Wednesday|
Grilled chicken with spinach and mushrooms.
Ugh, 3 nights in a row was all I could manage.
Hip Hop Class!!
It was fun, but too much jumping.
Hurt my back.
|Tuesday Body Pulse and Abs class!|
I put alot into this class this week! :)
FUN! As always! :)
That is my week in a nutshell. I didn't meet my workout goal this week, but I am at least getting my passion for it back. I wasn't dreading any gym sessions this week and had a lot of fun in all of my classes! I am hoping to keep that same mind set for next week and try to make it to the gym more.
All in all I have to say that this week was a success! It was the outcome I was hoping for from this mini challenge. That's what it's all about right? Challenging yourself and then seeing how you can overcome it!
I am going to end with this picture I'm obsessed with. I ordered a tutu for Halloween. I'm going to be a ballerina! :) It's a running tutu so I hope to use it for 5ks as well...once I can get to that point! :) I want to wear this thing all day everyday. I love it!
