Core De Force day 7

Sundays are always super busy for us. We have church then lunch then shopping for the week. 


Coconut cafe latte pudding to go. 


Meal prep


Finally while hubby was at soccer we got in our Sunday stretch workout. 

Core De Force day 2

Lost 1.4 overnight. The scale does not define me, but it does define my insulin resistance. I want to lose another 10. 

My fasting blood sugar was 20 points lower than it had been. That’s a huge indicator that this is working!


I was feeling anxious after the workout so I made myself a tropical Shakeology and looked at flights for the Hard Rock Punta Cana trip in April. 


Had some yummy Nom Nom Paleo burgers for dinner. Delicious. 


Ready for the election to be over so we can figure out what’s next. 

Country Heat Day 16 Recap

Tuesday’s are add on Dance Conditioning day. I’m really liking the doubles and don’t struggle to fit in both. Today was a busy errand day. Got a lot done as we get ready for vacation. 

I’ve loosened my containers a bit since the weekend and see it on the scale. A bit too much cheese and corn tortilla chips and I’m gaining instead of losing. It’s crazy how the extra salt and different foods change results. I’ve also been eating mostly tomatoes for my veggies and think I need to diversify. Still sitting at my goal weight number. I’d like to drop 5-10 more but we will see what my body says. 

Here’s my time trick. I KonMari fold my workout clothes and pair the sports bras and shorts together in the fold. Because of shorts’ waistbands I alternate them top and bottom so they fit better in my drawer. Then in the morning I don’t waste time to find sets, I just grab and go. So much easier. 

No shame Sunday

I’ve been reading a lot lately about mindset, fixed versus growth, and brain training (what conscious and subconscious thoughts are determining your emotions?). Marie Kondo talks about not keeping things out of guilt or fear and instead surrounding yourself with things that spark joy. 

For the last 3 weeks I’ve been pushing through a workout that I don’t love and isn’t my jam. Old me would focus on finishing because quitting is for losers. New me is about doing what I need to do to get back my jam and mojo. So tomorrow I’ll switch my workout to something else.  No shame in my self care game. 

Why do I make myself switch instead of quitting all together? That’s a good question. Part of it is because I have 2 little kids I need to raise. Part of it is I had to shoot 28 weeks of insulin 4x a day to have those beautiful little kids. Part of it is I like getting stronger and leaner. And part of it is that I need the endorphins to be happy for the rest of the day. 

Time to get some sleep and be ready for tomorrow.
