Weekly Wrap 08/31-09/06/15


Monday - T25

Here's an oldie but a goodie. I hadn't done T25 in such a long time.  I can tell the difference in my body since I did it last.  I was able to do a lot more of the higher impact moves.  & look at that messed up sweaty hair.  Prove positive it worked me out.

Tuesday- Les Mills Combat 30

Man, I dont think I'll ever have a workout that I love more then kick boxing.  I hadn't done Les Mills Combat in awhile & I missed it even more doing it.  Something about punching & kicking that is just home to me.

Wednesday - Running

Ricky had to work late so I ended up doing a run to pass the time.  I felt really good & strong on this one too.  A big thumbs up for that!

Thursday - Les Mills 45

I loved it so much on Tuesday, I did the next one up... a longer kickboxing class.

Friday - Walk / Abs

I dont normally work out on Friday but I needed a good stress break away from the computer so I walked about 2 miles & then did some abs.  A walk is always good for the body & soul.


No 'formal' workout - but I was running all day & had a photo session which made for a good hour & a half of walking.  In 95 degree weather.  It was a sweat fest for sure in its own rite.


The hubs was sick & I was pretty much shackled to my computer... consider it a rest day.

* I think I could eat a whole carton of portabella mushrooms all by myself.  Make them up in olive oil & salt & pepper & yep, give me a whole plate.  I made it up with some quiona pasta & some fresh steamed broccoli & this was probably one of my best dishes I've made in awhile.


* I hate Baked Lays with my Subway sandwich this week.  That may not seem like a big deal, but I havent had any chips since June 1st.  I want to figure out how to live real life & that includes having a 130 calorie bag of chips if I want it.  Balancing it with my whole day's nutrition.  I don't want to feel like EVERY bit of food is not allowed.  I made sure to skip one carb (a yellow for you 21 Day Fixers) just so I could enjoy this bag of chips at lunch.  I think I made it work.

* I could eat Panera's avacado, egg & spinach sandwich every morning if I could.... YUM!


* My spirits are SOARING this week when I got on the scale & see that I am now down 21 lbs!  I am now in ONEderland... That's embarrassing to even say, but its accountability & the truth... & maybe it inspires someone else.  Its been a long time since I've been there. I never want to get out of there again.  I refuse for that to happen again.  I refuse.  It's only down from here!

* My spirits were also up when I got into a pair of shorts that I couldnt even get up over my hips at the beginning of the summer.  & they were comfortable too.... 


* My heart is aching for a close friend who has been fighting cancer for over 10 years... the doctors are saying her fight may be nearing the end.  I hate cancer.  My heart actually hurts for her & her family.

So how was your week? 
Give me the best thing that happened to you
