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!

Bridal Boot Camp: Check In #1 (oops)

We’re on a roll – much later than expected, but hey, we’re working on it. I’ve finally managed to measure myself this month (it’s been a lot busier than I could’ve predicted, but the boys have been having a blast).

In this post I mentioned to you what my plans were with diet and exercise. Back pain is still pretty bad, but it’s at least steadying and not getting worse. My diet has been pretty good, I’ve lost a teensy bit around my belly, a bit of a stubborn fat area.

My thinking was that I would just eat whatever I wanted on Sundays, and the rest of the week would be straddling the line between strict and intuitive. Well, it turns out aside from the mimosas I had with one of my lovely friends (still not too shabby), I ate intuitively! My stomach led me to say no to a bagel and cream cheese, but to have a strawberry kale smoothie instead. Dinner was hearty, but still pretty good all things considered!

I feel pretty confident with what this month can bring me, or what I can take from it, rather. I’m actually going to be taking a little vacation with the boys while the house is worked on, and I’m really excited for the change of scenery. We’re staying in the same city, but even still, it’s at least closer to civilization!

I’ll check in with you guys when I can and let’s hope for a groovy mini-vacay, and a spectacular, successful June!
