I would say this week was a success simply because my husband commented on my "hot legs" throughout the week! ha! My legs have never been a personal asset of mine. They have always been muscular, but have always been a bit larger than the rest of my body...and not as toned as I would like. (I like to think I can compare myself to the gorgeous Kardashian women with their legs and booties. ;) Anywho...my husband is always saying sweet things to me about my body, but that comment is a new one...and one that has definitely pushed me to continue this journey even on the more challenging days!
How did Week 6 go?
My goal this week was to not eat sweets. I didn't do so hot with that. Between hubby wanting chocolate chip cookies on Fat Tuesday and caving to try a new Pinterest "Dole Pineapple Whip Float" copycat recipe from Disney World, success was lacking! I did eat less sweets than normal though. I have gotten out of the habit of having to add something sweet to my lunch each day when I pack it.
As far as this week in general, I did feel like we started to get more of our groove down with me going back to work. We ate at home more than my first week back and I had energy to go to the grocery and plan out healthy purchases! Slowly but surely we'll get back on track :)... and then summer will hit meaning we can go back to the way things were when I was home on maternity leave...whoo hoo!!
Was I active?
Well 3/7 days isn't my best record...but it's not bad considering we had a long, lazy 3 day weekend and it's my second week back to work.
Monday-Circuit training (17 minutes); 15 minute walk pushing stroller; 37 push-ups; 1 min 15 sec plank
Tuesday-Circuit training (20 minutes); 48 push-ups; 2 min 15 sec plank
Thursday-Circuit training (20 minutes); 53 push-ups
Yes...down 2.2 more pounds! (down 5.8 lbs from starting weight)
And since I only worked out 3 out of the 7 days and went over my calorie limit a few days, I'm contributing it mainly to the fact that Adeline is now eating two more times during the night right now. Oh, and maybe running around my school like a crazy person up and down stairs, etc. trying to catch back up to being gone for 3 1/2 months! ;)
Waist: 30" (down 2" from starting measurement) -- same
Thigh: 21 1/2" (down 1 1/4" from starting measurement)
Week 8 Goal?
Do three sets of planks for 60 seconds each, each day.
