Hittin it hard...

Ok, so here is an update like I promised. So far this week I have been killing it in the gym. Triple workouts everyday! Gym in the am for some cardio or lifting, hot yoga in the evening, then straight to the gym again to do some more cardio or more lifting.

60 minutes cardio: switched between running and the bike
90 minutes hot yoga
30-45 minute walk

10 minutes bike
Quick leg workout
90 minutes hot yoga
45 minute walk
Finished the leg workout

60 minutes cardio: 15 minutes stairclimber, 20 minutes treadmill, 25 minutes bike
90 minutes hot yoga
30 minutes bike

My diet has been pretty clean this week too. In fact, I haven't really been eating that much. My last big meal of the day is usually around 4:00pm. I try and eat after hot yoga and my night workouts, but I am not typically hungry. Tonight on the way home I picked up some fresh spring rolls from the grocery store with salmon and tuna in them. They also had carrots, cucumber, and avocado. Carrots are not on my list of "ok" foods, but I am hoping the small amount won't hold me back. Like I said earlier in the week, my goal is 3 pounds this week, but I am fearful that I won't lose anything. Extremely frustrating. Trying to keep my head up and focus on the changes I am seeing in my body. I am full of energy and love working out...just need to keep that in mind. The number on the scale is NOT everything. In fact, I am not supposed to weigh myself more than once a week to avoid the eating disorder thoughts...perhaps it is time to get rid of the scale at my house and just stick to Friday morning weigh-ins with Bekah. Then, regardless of the number on the scale I have Bekah by my side for support. :)

Tomorrow Bekah and I are going to a concert at the Emerald Casino...we won free tickets! :) Should be a great show! We are planning on getting a good workout in the morning and then going for a walk as well. To stay on track with eating we are going to stop by Trader Joe's and get ourselves some healthy foods! Protein and veggies baby! Cannot afford to get off track the night before our weigh-in...worked way to hard this week to let it go to waste now. :)

Have a good night everyone. Thanks for your support! And I would love any advice you experienced fitness gals can provide!

  1. I have to remind myself that the scale isn't everything too! I get so caught up in the number that I see when I step on it, that I can stress myself out!
