I have been eating healthy this week (much better than last week). I’m still struggling with doing the BeFit in 90. I’m struggling with getting myself to do it as well as trying to complete it. I did take Peanut for a walk today and I hope to take her for more walks this week. We had a great time and we took food for Hubby’s uncle to eat. I’m getting much better than last week but I’m still finding it hard to stay motivated. But I’m trying 🙂

Weekly Summary

I had a pretty great week. I have been researching and implementing some of what I have learned. It has really been helping. I’ve been eating oatmeal for breakfast almost every morning and adding rice to most meals. I have felt so much better.

The BeFit in 90 has been great as well. I have been doing a Fat Blast workout instead of the Cardio Booster and it has really been kicking my butt. It’s awesome!

I am pretty terrible at food journaling. I try pretty hard but I always seem to forget a meal or something. I try but it just doesn’t seem to work.

Weekly Summary

As I said in this post, I had a bad dietary week and it showed. I’m really disappointed but this will give me the kick in the butt I need to find ways to eat healthy without irritating my stomach. I admit I am frustrated but I am not giving up. I refuse to give up. It is not an option.

I have been looking at a few websites including helpforibs.com. One thing I have already started is eating more soluble fiber and more protein. Hopefully this will help as I continue to find the best way to eat healthy for me. Yes, for ME. What is great for one person is not always great for another. I just have to continue to try until I find what works for me. It might take me years to figure it out and that’s okay. As long as I continue to try my best every day and work towards being healthy, that’s all that matters.

Anyway, I did great with my workouts and adding extra cardio. I will continue working out. I love it. I love the feeling after a great workout 🙂

Weekly Summary

This week has had its ups and downs. Overall, it was a great week but its had its down moments. I had to stop doing the 30 Day Squat Challenge as you can read here because of the pain in my knees. I was really disappointed but I’ve had some great support from fellow bloggers. Thanks so much to all of you!

Other than that, I’ve had a great week. I did a lot of fun projects this week for the Relay event on Friday and Saturday, including tye-dying t-shirts

, tye-dying my finger nails, and the actual Relay event. I walked 4.97 miles at Relay and had so much fun with friends and family. I’ll be posting about the tye-dye nails and the Relay event in the next day or two.

I am really happy I lost another 1.4 pounds! I’m on a roll! Woohoo! I have .4 pounds until I reach my first goal! I’m going to bring it this week to try to get under 250! Let’s do this! Hope everyone has a great week and Happy Father’s Day to all my dad followers!

Weekly Summary

I had a great week exercise-wise. I did all of my BeFit in 90 workouts and all the squats I needed to do for the Squat Challenge. I am happy to say my legs are finally getting use to the squats. So far I’ve done 490 squats in the last 9 days (including today)! Woot woot! Still going strong!

I ate veggies this week but every time I ate some it really upset my stomach. Mainly spinach was the culprit. I haven’t felt great all day. Otherwise everything else was fine. I have been making sure I drink plenty of water.

Hubby, Peanut, and I even went on a walk or two this week. I still love going on walks with my family. Hubby and I have plenty of time to talk when we go on walks together. Peanut loves being outside when we go on our walks.

Weekly Summary

I didn’t lose any weight this week but that isn’t a big deal. I did really well with eating healthy AND working out this week. I am doing the BeFit in 90 as instructed. It was getting easier so I bumped up my weights from 3lbs to 5lbs. I also started the 30 day Squat challenge. I began it yesterday. Its intense so far but hopefully it will get easier and I’ll be less sore. I have been eating a lot of fruit this week including cherries, strawberries, and grapefruit. I have been eating veggies but I want to eat more next week. I am proud of how well I’m doing.

Even though, I haven’t lost weight this week but I have lost inches. You can check it out on my measurement post. I have the fitness bug and I don’t want to get rid of it! Wootsies!

Weekly Summary

Woohoo! I lost 3 pounds this week! I’m on fire! LOL

All enthusiasm aside, this week has been a hard one for me. I must admit I am both proud and disappointed in myself this past week. As you might know from my posts, I have been very stressed and anxious all week waiting for the lab results from my daughter’s blood work. I have tried hard to keep myself from falling into the usual stress habits I previously embraced, such as becoming lazy, sleeping a lot, eating A LOT (of bad foods), not exercising, and other unhealthy habits.

Overall, I believe I did pretty good. I continued to follow my fitness program. If I didn’t have an actual fitness program like BeFit in 90, I don’t know if I would have exercised as much as I did. Thankfully, it kept me on track with my workouts and I did every single one. 🙂 I didn’t take naps when Peanut did, although I wanted to. I also made sure to drink plenty of water and eat healthy snacks like grapefruit (almost ate one everyday), strawberries, broccoli, granola bars, and other delicious healthy goodies.

I am disappointed in some of the things I did (and didn’t) do. The weather this week has been crazy. Its either been storming, sweltering, or freezing. All in the same week to top it off. I didn’t go for a walk once this week and I am rather annoyed at myself for not going. There was a few possible windows of opportunity where I could have gone on at least a short walk but I didn’t. I made excuses when I should have just gone on a walk. I will try harder this week to go on the walks I enjoy. Hopefully, Peanut and the weather will be more accommodating this week.

I have also been eating some unhealthier foods as well. This week I’ve eaten some pizza (no dairy), chicken salad sub (delicious but too much mayo), and tofutti (dairy free ice cream). I am pretty disappointed in the food choices I’ve made. I will be more careful with what I eat this week coming up.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week! 🙂
