Since I made the decision to get back on the wagon and start my road to healthiness again I have lost between half a pound and a pound a week. Although this means that I have a long road to hoe, it means that I am getting there. I am almost down to the where I was in September of 2009 when I was at my lowest weigh and my highest fitness level. The best part of this whole process is that I am having fun doing it.
I hit the gym during lunch 3 or 4 days a week. Mixing it up between cardio and strength. Right now I have been focusing a lot on my abs because honestly I WANT this tummy GONE! I shouldn't blame it on the two c-sections that I have had because lord knows that this tummy was there before my two beautiful children came along. But I would like everyone to see the tone muscles that are there underneath the pudge. ;)
I have been riding a lot but not as much as I would like. This week was an off week for me with regards to the bike. But that just means that next week I will come back stronger and harder. I have a Monday night right to do and a Wednesday night ride to do. Perhaps I might sneak in a Tuesday or Thursday night right as well. We shall see. ;) But I am still spinning. I love spin class! I am getting stronger and faster. I burned more calories this week in 45 minutes than I have in any of the other classes that I have taken. I keep improving and one day I might actually burn more than the guys in the class. Keep you fingers crossed for me!
We are still working on the food addiction. I love food people. LOVE IT! I love to make it. I love to eat it. I love to look up new recipes on Pinterest. I love to talk about it. I LOVE IT! But I need to find more food that makes me love my body more. I am having a hard time with veggies at the moment. I feel like I am not getting enough. There have been many days in the last few weeks that I would go a whole day without eating ONE vegetable. This just isn't good. Not good for me or the family. I have got to fix this stat!
Summer is right around the corner and I want to feel comfortable in a swim suit taking my kiddos to the beach. Gotta kick it up a notch! Who's with me?
