Weekly Summary

This week was pretty crazy. I worked a lot this week, my brother came up for a day from Florida, and we had a doctor’s appointment for Peanut. Even though it was a crazy week, I don’t make excuses and I don’t need to! I walked a total of 13.18 miles for the week (yay!) and managed to add some additional workouts as well.

  • Sunday night, after my walk, I did a step aerobics workout.
  • Thursday, I did a yoga workout while Peanut was sleeping.
  • Friday, I walked over 3 miles at a flea-market. Plus when I got home, I did an arm workout with a 5 minute cool-down yoga routine.

Overall, I have had a great week in regards to exercise. I’m really happy with it. I have also increased my water intake and I will continue to drink a lot but I don’t think it needs to be another goal for the upcoming week. Fruits and veggies have been making a regular appearance on my plate and I hope to continue eating them more often.

Weekly Summary

I walked roughly 9.83 miles this week! I’m so proud of myself! I had a few problems with my phone accurately tracking my miles, but I know I beat my goal of 8 miles. I also did a strength training workout. I don’t have a gym membership so I work out at home using hand weights.

There was a few temptations this week with dairy and it was pretty hard to resist. I did manage to ignore the temptations and stick to being dairy free. I am happy to say I added fruits or veggies every day. I mainly added fruit though so this week I want to work on adding more veggies to my diet.

As a side note, Hubby has been going on walks with me all week. He has lost 2 pounds this week as well!!! I’m so proud of him ❤

Weekly Summary
This past week has been my first dairy free week I’ve ever had. Surprisingly, it was not as hard as I thought it would be. I can’t believe how much food has dairy in it. Its rather daunting, but I try to look for the positive in life. Dairy free is turning out to be helpful because it keeps me from eating junk food like cookies, chocolate, and all sorts of other unhealthy food. Most of the food I want to eat containing dairy isn’t healthy for me anyway, including frozen dinners and most processed foods. Therefore, I have been making my meals from scratch (which I enjoy doing anyway) so I know what I am eating. This allows me to add more veggies my meals.

As far as fitness goes, I have been walking every chance I can get this week. The weather has been warm and wonderful. I’ve taken my daughter on walks almost every day this week. I’ve walked a little over 5 miles. I’m quite proud of myself 🙂

Do you have any short term goals this week you want to accomplish? What do you think of the goals I’ve set for myself this week? Let me know!
