Fit Friday!

Second week was a success. I was actually pretty darn good over the weekend which is always the hardest for me. Baked chips and 55 calorie beer thankyouverymuch. 

The stats this week:

Pounds Lost: 1.5 pounds
To Go: 51.5 to go

My workout schedule this week:

Monday - T25 Cardio
Tuesday - T25 Speed 1.0
Wednesday - T25 Total Body Circuit
Thursday - T25 Cardio
Friday - T25 Lower Body
Saturday - T25 Abs 
Sunday - Rest 

Speed 1.0 is definitely my favorite, but I really don't ever dread any of these workouts. I like that they are fast and I am dripping in sweat at the end. It is a great start to the day in my opinion. See also: I love Shawn T.

Highs of this week:

    • Did I mention the baked sour cream and onion chips? Seriously, so good. 

      • I used my new blender! I love it so much! I made the Pomegranate Blueberry Powerhouse Smoothie and it was delicious. I subbed in fresh strawberries instead of the frozen berries because I didn't want the strawberries to go bad. The second time I made it I used the frozen berries and I loved the flavor even more. I just love that I get my greens in without even tasting them. Winning!

      • I could NOT find chia seeds anywhere in the grocery store so I made it without them and just had a hard boiled egg for extra protein and it was a nice breakfast. Filling and a nice change.

      • Greek Salad from this diner by work. It's my new obsession. It is my dinner and lunch for a few days. I love a meal that lasts and lasts.

      • I feel good. I sleep better. I'm making changes and feeling good about it and not even an ounce deprived. It's funny how a new workout regimen can help me stay so focused and motivated.

      • I'm so proud of myself for really sticking to eating clean over the weekend. Weekends are seriously so hard for me so this was a real victory. I got this. I'm DOING this.

      • This Sabra dill yogurt dip is off the chain good. Ohhhhemmmmgeeeeee. You must try it! I love it on chicken or pita bread.

      Lows of the week:
      • I still need to find a good weigh in day that works for me. I can't keep weighing in everyday because it's too emotionally draining when the number is higher or the same. Right now I weigh in on Fridays but I may change it to Sunday because I've noticed that is when I notice the biggest difference (i.e. lowest number). 

      • I'm still mad about this. I bought chicken at Meijer with a sell by date of August 15th and went to make it Wednesday (the 13th) and the chicken smelled so funky I had to throw all $13 worth of chicken away. There is nothing I hate more than wasting food. So that threw off my whole week of meal planning and slightly turned me off of chicken for a bit. 
      • I need to be a bit more active this weekend. I ate better last weekend, but I wasn't active. So this weekend I would like to eat well AND be active. We plan to take Manny to the park tomorrow for a walk/run so I'm excited for that.
      There you have it. A pretty good week, over all. 100% committed and feeling good. Now, give me your feedback!

      What is your favorite smoothie?
      What is your weigh in day?
      Where are chia seeds in the grocery store?
      How do you like the new format?

      Chia seeds are at meijer in the aisle with gluten free stuff/healthy stuff. Bobs red mill sells some. I even see it a lot in the checkout at tjmaxx.

      Get your receipt and call on that chicken and see if they will do anything for you. You probably threw away the packaging, but I would call. That's a lot of money to be out!

      Wait till you get to Speed 2.0 in Beta! The. Best. I looooooove that yogurt dip. I make sweet potato chips and dip them in it. I always weigh in on Fridays so I can have a cheat day on Saturday. Ha!!! You're doing great girl!
