I am completely proud that I am on track with this program! Tomorrow I get a day of rest and already I am tense about it… I don’t want to! The workouts are incredibly difficult. I literally drip sweat. I make my shake right after my workout and the whole time – I sweat. dripping. I have taken to putting a towel around my neck to catch it. My shake recipe – I love!!
I stir the scoop of tropical Shakeology into 6oz of Orange juice. I put the following in the blender: 2 Strawberries, 2tblspns of Plain yogurt, 2 ice cubes, then add the drink, blend and I love it!! Love it! I think back to the first Shake I made using water and ice cubes and how it tasted like sand and oh how I was terribly mistaken!
I am limiting myself to just the one shake after my morning workout. I watched Extreme Weightloss tonight and the contestant almost seemed addicted to the shakes they started him on – to the point of malnutrition. I am certainly not wanting to head in that direction!
Tonight I also walked 3.02 mi (6,040 steps) with my oldest. Healthy lifestyle changes can not occur to a Mom alone. The whole family should be incorporated, right? Right! She loved it – we chatted the whole way! Once a week I should do this with her!
I probably should make an appearance at the gym we belong to – one of these days… I am just having so much fun at home! Instead of worrying about what everyone thinks about what I am trying to do – I can focus on how I feel doing the exercises, perfect the form of each exercise and concentrate on becoming a better me!
