At the end of my first week I’ve lost 3 lbs! I was hoping for more of a significant loss in the beginning but I am doing weight lifting, so I know it might come off slower. But it will be more fat loss percentage vs muscle mass and the more muscle I have the higher my metabolism should be. Also I wasn’t perfect at getting to the gym or reaching my step goals. My little boy just doesn’t like going to the Gym Daycare, so if any of you readers out there have experience with a clingy baby, your suggestions of how you break him of this are WELCOME! (please please please). So, I have tried to do some workouts for home and take my little boy on walks. I can make all the excuses I want, but I need to try harder!
On Monday I started the #BetterBootyChallenge that Sara Haley put out. I love the extra Booty Workout I am getting and really enjoying it. I’m actually trying to do it twice a day, morning and night.
Here is a sped up version of my DAY 3. Don’t judge… lol
Recording myself was SUPER helpful. I could see my form and it helped me realize where I needed to improve. I have too much of an arch in my back and need to pull in my core more to keep a neutral spine. So I have some work to do! This has really worked muscles in my Booty that I have NEVER felt before! WOO HOO!
I’ve really enjoyed the at home work outs I’ve been doing, but I need to invest in a KettleBell set because that will help with my at home workouts. I also ordered Sara Haley’s 4th Trimester Workout DVD, so I am SUPER excited for that to arrive!
For this week I changed up my proteins a little bit. I got REALLY SICK OF CHICKEN ALL DAY EVERYDAY! So I purchased some lean steaks and very lean boneless pork chops. Cooked those up on my Cast-Iron Skillet and sliced them up and divided them up between my food containers. I did not get sick of my Quinoa salad, so I made more of that (it’s just so yummy and protein packed!). Then I got a bunch of broccoli steamer bags and cooked those up and added them to the pouches. I am doing Mommi 3in1 shakes every morning along with a hard boiled egg. My favorite go-to Mommi 3in1 recipe is simply 1/2 frozen banana, 10oz almond milk, 5 cubes of ice and Mommi 3in1 chocolate. Super simple and yummy! For dinner I have more of the variety of meats i already cooked and I will mix them with spinach or kale, and other salad veggies for a yummy salad. I always make my own dressings, typically with balsamic vinegar, Italian seasonings, coconut oil, mustard and a little honey… WAY TASTY.
This last week I did great on keeping my calories down, so thats a WIN! But I didn’t have the activity I wanted and needed. So this week is a NEW WEEK and I can try again! I’m going to focus on trying to be more active and make that a priority! WISH ME LUCK!
