The week was fairly easy for me, food wise, because I was at a friend's house most of the time who doesn't keep junk in the house! Other than that, we had lots of fruits, veggies, and of course... water around the house, so we all did really well. We also did smoothies!
Workout wise... this week was a bust. As I said, I was away from home helping a friend all week, and by the time I would get home, I was so tired, I just didn't do it. I know, though, that if I work out, I will shape up better, so this week - I'm not giving myself an option. 13 lbs is a lot of weight, and sadly, I have not yet noticed a size change! INSANE! It will come!
Coming to Grips
I'm going to do away with the "Me time" goal. I have so much to do, there's not really much time to do anything for myself. I'm kinda used to it now. It sucks, but it is what it is. I also can't lie to myself and say that reading for 20 minutes in bed is "me time" anymore. I'm usually having to read over Andy snoring or most of the time, Hawk waking up or getting in our bed and kicking me in the side. So... we're scratching that off the list.
New Tasks for the Week
I will be working five days out of the week, so I'm not even really sure what tasks will be feasible to set at this point! I find myself so gun ho to set goals, and then I never have enough time to actually DO them which is a great set up for disappointment. This weekend, was the culmination of one of those set ups. So this week... I'm going to wing it and see where that gets me.
I've been jonesin' to get my feet into a new pair of Earth Footwear! Partly because I need new shoes for working out and walking, but mainly because they are super awesome, and they are a Mamavation sponsor! Come check us out tonight on Mamavation TV!
The cool thing about Earth Footwear is that they have a negative incline feature to where the heel is set lower than the toe. By placing the foot at an incline, the body naturally stands up straighter, building core muscles in the abdomen, legs and gluts to improve overall muscle tone and help you burn calories (pulled from an Ezine article).
The most defining feature of Earth footwear is a 3.7° Incline – a unique inclined sole that positions the toes 3.7º higher than the heels. The slight angle shifts weight subtly back over the heels, and can help strengthen and tone the body while also burning calories.More Info...
