This week has been a good week for goals. A really good week. In the week of the month I am supposed to gain, I stayed put. I consider that a loss of some sort. I’ve stuck with my clean eating plan as well, minus a few baby Rolo, and they didn’t even taste good. How’s that for a victory?
Although I’ve not worked out every single day, I have been very intentional about keeping up with my workouts. I completed two strength workouts, the upper body one having a ton of burpees and other jumps, and I also got in my favorite long Combat workout. I hope to get in another cardio tonight after work since I go in early, but we’ll see.
I’m creeping ever-so-slowly toward my five pound goal for the month. I suppose it might seem sort of impossible heading into the week of Christmas, but I am keeping positive.
My pants are looser, and I just generally feel more pulled in and lighter.
Clean Eating Goals:
I’ve made it by at work with nuts with sea salt and either applesauce that is natural or fruit in a cup in it’s own juice. Late this week I had small amounts of sweet tea, but I was really mindful of the sugar.
Breakfast is usually egg whites and oatmeal or egg whites and English muffin. Lunch has consisted of Triscuits and hummus with grapefruit. Dinner has been a sub from Subway at work or a clean dinner.
I’ve inhaled the water and had hot tea with stevia if I needed flavor.
On Sunday we “treated” and ate not only Arby’s but ice cream. I felt like crap AND it didn’t even taste good.
Yesterday I got a fruit parfait as I went into work and it was FABULOUS. I know it had too much sugar, but it was low in calories. I’ll tuck that one away for when I feel like splurging!
How was your fitness week? Fabulous or a struggle?
