I survived HELL WEEK!!
That’s right, I made Hell Week my bitch!
Sorry, language. I forget myself sometimes.
So, I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve already gone through the freak out stage last year when I did the Move It and Lose It Challenge, but I’m feeling pretty good. That’s not to say that I don’t crave stuff every once in a while, like soda or ice cream, but it hasn’t been too hard for me to make it past the cravings.
I will tell you that so far my biggest obstacle has been PMS. We can talk about that here right? Sure we can.
I hate the bloated feeling that I have right now. Last night I made the mistake of stepping on the scale just out of curiousity and I almost cried at the number. It made it seem like I hadn’t been working hard at all. Thankfully, after a full nights sleep I’m seeing more clearly and I know that was a pretty dumb thing for me to do. Honestly, I can’t just base the success of this campaign on the number that is on the scale. Healthy living is a journey my friends, a journey with many obstacles and WAY more triumphs.
My triumph for today? This morning during my mile run I didn’t have to coax myself through it. If you don’t know what I’m talking about I encourage you to read THIS POST. Instead I just kept thinking to myself how good I felt and how, although, I was sweating like a pig on a BBQ, I didn’t want to stop. It was awesome!
My goal for next week, to break into the 160′s. I WILL DO IT!
On to my video for the week.. Be sure to watch it ‘cuz I’ve got some important tips on how to get 10,000 steps each day!
No week is complete without thanking the people and sponsors who are helping bring my goals to fruition!
