Last week was spent getting back on track with my workouts. Thank goodness because it’s been too long but the one thing I have learned is to be positive. It’s amazing how easily we can get lost in the excuses. I’m loving my Fitbit graphs. You can see how hard I’m working over here. Obviously green is the highest level of intensity. Looks like I need to work on getting more in the green if I want to see real results.
Workouts – Killed it this week!
Tuesday: Crossfit and Spin
Friday: Circuit Training – I think I left my Fitbit at home or something because it didn’t register at all on the graph.
Scale Reading– 161 How do you lose 4 pounds in a day? Really that much water weight? I guess. All my numbers are tracked via Fitbit so I know it works.
Stress Level – Great but these kids keep getting sick. What is the deal?
The UP side– Started the lose 12 inches with 12 work outs. Also joined up for the Juneathon.com challenge and a Virtual 5K with Mamavation.
Here is a little smoothie recipe I just got finished whipping up! These are good and boy do they fill you up.
A special reminder for us all…
It wasn’t the work out. It was all the build up and stress from the week. It’s really all about what you tell yourself. It was hot. As soon as I said it, all my focus went to feeling hot. I was frustrated because I should have been faster, lifted heavier, not modifying and as soon as I started giving all that a voice I wanted to quit. I was sore from working out this week and as soon as I focused on that I became tired. I had to absolutely fight my way out of all that and to be positive. It helped to have other voices telling me…
“You got this Pam.” “You can do it!” “Take 5 breaths and keep going” “5 more Pam!” “4 more Pam, you’re almost done!”
That’s what good coaches do and Shaun and Taylor Wilson were both there for me today. I finished. I was last, the slowest and lifted the lightest but I showed up, I finished and that’s how you leave like a champion!
