Wooohooo! Bug is officially off of the pediatrician's watch list because she is gaining weight like a mad woman. Me, I'm not doing much, but this week, I have been feeling pretty content with my body. If you hadn't already read, Bug and I are a breastfeeding duo and it has done wonders for my mood and self esteem. Weird. So much of my self image is now tied to how she is doing.
Soooo, you may have noticed that I'm at 204 for the third week in a row. I can assure you, it is not because I didn't work out enough. In addition to jogging twice last week, we walked two days and I let Jillian Michael's kick my ass as I fumbled through 30 Day Shred on Monday. It wasn't pretty, but it was effective. My abs are still tight.
I also did a fantastic job of eating my fruits and veggies this week. Bug and I headed to the Farmer's Market on Saturday and I have already eaten almost everything I bought.
The problem... was pastries. I didn't have any of those Reduced Fat Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cakes until yesterday, and I didn't even buy it. My well meaning sister grabbed me one and I was too hungry to refuse. I did however eat 3 bear claws, a cinnamon roll and a lemon bar. Add up those calories and you have at least a pound that I could have lost if I would have had just a little more self control. I have no idea what my issue is. I'm usually not at all interested in sweets.
The good news is that I started a new challenge today. I joined the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans new fitness challenge, the Spring In 2 Action Challenge, which is a six week challenge starting today.
My partner JoAnn and I are competing against other teams to reach our fitness goals. I am so stoked to have this little motivational push and the support of a teammate to push me when I don't feel like eating well or working out.
So this week I am going to commit to these three things:
- Up my fruit and veggie servings to 5 a day.
- Limit my pastries to 1 this week. Isn't it sad that I have to even say this?
- Get in 3 workouts this week.
