Friday Feels

Another week has gone by, my weight crept up again.  But I also started a new workout program with a friend.  With an agreement of a 5am wakeup at least four days a week.  We did it!  We made it through week one and it was challenging.  I felt like I got a quality workout on those four days.  I did yoga on my designated recovery days.  Which helped with how tight my muscles were feeling.  The more active I am the less I want to eat so I’m trying to move as much as possible.img_2199

My plan for this week is to just continue my buddy workouts four days a week.  Also continuing my daily cycling for at least 30 minutes.  Getting up at 5am has actually been a nice change to the school week.  It allows me to get in my workout without feeling rushed or guilty.  The added bonus is I can get ready for my day with that same no stress vibe.  If only I could keep that vibe for the rest of the day….I’m working on it.  I’m hopeful to see a change in those measurements at minimum.  I promised myself and my friend Shannon that I wouldn’t quit.  We’re developing strong habits to carry forward and continue to do great things.  Being strong and fit is always WAY better than being skinny.

Here’s to a great week!  Enjoy all the Halloween festivities this week….I know it’s my favorite time of year! XO

Friday Feels….On a Saturday morning

e33d2616d398798174a5f98806eda7a9--hello-friday-art-quotesGood morning friends, what a week this has been for me!  The busiest I’ve had in a long time.  My husband and I have been working hard on setting up our new GPS Tracking business.  Between conference calls, finding suppliers and trainings almost everyday – it all feels a little overwhelming!  I had a few family things to deal with too this week.  My dad has been fighting RA for years and lately his mobility has gotten very limited.  So I’ve been stepping in and helping out when I can because I can offer more strength in helping him at doctors appointments.  At the end of September he had an infection pop up out of no where in his foot that required two surgeries to take care of it, including a week long hospital stay, six weeks of daily antibiotic infusions and home visits from a nurse every other day to change bandages.  He just finished those infusions this week and I am beyond thrilled.  This means he can get back on his RA medication this week, which I am hopeful will improves his mobility.

 

img_2021As far as my promises to myself last week, well….I didn’t do so great.  My weight and measurements went up.  I definitely didn’t
track like I wanted to or drink enough water.  I did get in 30 minutes of exercise daily and complete my 10 things I’m grateful for each day.  The lists are getting easier every day.  I realized there are so many things to be grateful for if you take a minute to realize it.  So for this next week I’ve committed to working out with a friend – checking in daily. It’s an eight week program – four times a week.  It’s nice to have an accountability partner for working out.  I have one for my gratitude and water.  I have to figure out what it’s going to take to get that scales moving in the right direction and my measurements.  Because I can’t go splitting my jeans again like last week (see Tuesday’s Instagram post haha).

Here’s hoping for an awesome week – I have a slightly less packed calendar for next week so let’s hope it stays that way!

 

Have a great week and thanks for reading! XO
