My goal is to get toned, build some muscle, and to eat clean. Moving my household towards a more clean way of eating is also on my priority list. I would like to think that we ate clean about 75% of the time. I have to be realistic; I work full time, have two children, a husband, I go to school, and I need to fit in work outs at least five times a week. Eating clean 100% of the time just doesn't work for me. So there are times that my kids will have chick-fil-a or have the Tyson chicken tenders (Hey at least they are made with whole wheat bread crumbs)
Last week I achieved my workout goal. I worked out six days last week and did my PumpUp App routine. I was also able to go to boot camp on Friday night and last night. I was very proud that I made it to boot camp last night because I really just wanted to stay home with the kids and watch Frozen-not to mention my sunburn that was being rubbed by my sports bra. Thursday night was my rest day since we had the carnival and I was still ridiculously sore from boot camp the Tuesday before. Sunday I did a three mile run to practice for my 5K this weekend.
Food wise I can't complain. Although I must admit I think I have a small addiction to peanut butter! I'm pretty sure I over do it on a daily bases. I easily have three to four tablespoons. Since I can't have sweets my go to thing lately is vanilla Greek yogurt with a scoop of peanut butter.
At the carnival I was good and had grilled chicken on a stick one night and a corn on the cob the other. Staid strong and didn't touch any sweets, although the funnel cake and the ice cream cone Madeline had looked amazing. Due to time crunches a couple of time through out the weekend I substituted a meal for a smoothie that consisted of kale, almond milk or low sugar orange juice, berries, and Greek yogurt. We also had a lot of left overs from all the different meals I made the week before which made eating dinner much easier.
My next project is to get a measuring tape to take my measurements to see my progress.
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
