Measure-In Monday | Week #2

Well, folks, we’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is I lost 2 and a half inches all over… the bad news is I didn’t reach my daily water intake last week, so this week, I’m sticking with that as my goal until I can manage an entire week without missing a day!

Last week was a trial, given the stuff going on with the house we’re currently in, and moving within the next week. It’s been stressful!

But my husband and I had our anniversary yesterday, so we went to this restaurant in the town we’re moving to. It was so good! I got this veggie filled cajun alfredo with blackened chicken, and my husband got a classic chicken fried steak. Our eldest ended up with this huge mac n cheese burger!

A few bites in and I was filled to the brim! Obviously I took the rest home for leftovers lol

This week is going to be heavy on the packing so I probably won’t upload my workouts, but I assure you, they are getting done! Until next time!

I did not want to do this workout.

Today was a rough momming day. Or at least that’s how it felt by 4 o clock. I woke up, got my BANG, did my morning stretches and the rest of my morning routine (which I won’t bore you with). I did kitchen cardio after that, and debated whether or not to save my mid-section workout for right after, or nap time… Neither happened.

I didn’t get to my workout until almost 8:30 pm! I wanted to be in bed by that time, but mom life is the hard life, lemme tell ya! I was feeling so discouraged that I wanted to just grab all of the naan in the fridge and eat it, and say screw the workout.

But I didn’t because ya girl needs to SHAPE UP! So after the boys went to bed, I took a deep breath, played 15 minutes of a video game, and told myself it was time to get that workout in. It was rough and you can tell how weak my midsection is just by looking at what little I managed to do, but the key is that I got it done.
