There are some weeks when you are going to triumph, where everything goes as planned and no obstacle seems too big to hurdle over. Then there are other weeks or days that make it difficult to continue steering in the right direction. I just had one of those weeks. Up until Thursday everything went off as planned and with a bang! I crushed my workouts, two of them per day as I have been doing for a while now, and the scale was steady at 1.3 pounds lower average than the week before (every week the average gets lower and that is exciting!)
Wednesday night we spontaneously went to a Portland Trailblazer game which was fun as always, but that lead to several drinks (and drinking is not something I can handle any more, even a little seems to kill me), I wouldn’t say I was “hungover” but I was definitely not feeling motivated to do much. So I cleaned, house which inevitably turns into somewhat of a workout due to a couple things:
My house isn’t the tiniest so cleaning every inch of it takes time and effort
Every time I start cleaning it turns into a solo dance party lasting several hours
However it was 1 of 3 days I’ve missed a workout in Jan, so I feel guilty. On the plus side I did get loads of personal things done that I had been putting on the back burner. So it wasn’t a total waste! We were also supposed to go snowboarding and snowshoeing yesterday, but that did not happen and it was slightly disappointing. But my daughter having fun, and Kris launching a new business proved to be more important than snow adventures. Relationships are all about give and take 💯
This last week’s highlights:
- Strength-Ever feel that you have gotten stronger? It’s the best feeling ever. I know I have, as evidence on Monday when we went night snowboarding (and even in the dark) I was riding better than I have all season. It was a lot of fun, riding at night adds an extra special element, plus it started snowing as we finished up and that’s always magical!
- More outdoors-I was able to get outside on what was supposed to be my rest day and did a little hike by myself. Although I would prefer to go with a friend(s), it would appear that none of my friends have the same time off that I do so my buddy hiking is thus far very limited! It was still fun and I always enjoy being outside not matter what!
- Non-Scale Victory-My clothes are fitting better every day, I’ve lost about 3 in. from my waist/abdomen, and I bought 2 new shirts in size small. That’s all the progress I need. Sure I was hoping the scale would be at least 2 pounds lower but I think things are ultimately headed in the right direction.
Today I am doing a yoga class and spending a lot of time to plan workouts, meal prep and of course SUNDAY RUNDAY! How will you spend your Sunday!?
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and that your week to come is another goal oriented week of success!
