Core Meltdown - Week One Check In

Okay, so today probably isn't the best day to check in. Yesterday I was out and about with my family and I got so hungry I ended up eating a bunch of salty chips...sigh. So I'm a little bloated today. But one day is just a drop in the bucket, the big picture is much better. And now that I am participating in Glam's Muffin Melt Off too, there are others involved to keep me competitive and focused.

I actually did pretty darn good on my exercise plan last week...I only missed one short run due to an upset stomach. Although I know I haven't really lost much weight this first week I do know that things are changing. I've taking measurements and things are definitely rearranging themselves.

So my goal for this week is to get a little more organized and planned out with my food. I wasn't really following a plan last week...just trying to be more aware and careful of what I was putting in my mouth. I did manage to stay away from milk and cheese (which wasn't easy for me) mainly because it just seems to reek havoc on my system, I'm not morally opposed to milk and cheese and I don't think it is bad for most people. But I think I need an actual meal plan, and keep a protein bar in my purse for those days when my husband keeps me out for hours shopping (not kidding).

This weeks exercise schedule:

  • Sunday - 10 mile run, abripperX

  • Monday - Shoulders & arms

  • Tuesday - 4 mile run, abripperX

  • Wednesday - YogaX

  • Thursday - 5 mile run, abripperX

  • Friday - 4 mile run, Legs & back

  • Saturday - rest

And now a moment to vent on some pet peeves I'm having at the come no one else in my family seems to know how to change the damn toilet paper! Nor do they even seem to know how to flush the toilet...I can forgive a four year old for this, but a 15 year old? or better yet a forty-five year old! and don't get me started on no one else seeming to know where the garbage is located in our house.

Okay, better now.

Hope everyone's weekend was for my run now!

Hang in there girl! Picture what you want to be and what you want to look like over and over and over and over, and start walking the talk like you are that person. Thoughts become things, just make it happen. You rock!

I'm interested in this abripperX thing you got going on. Email me some details at nikemomof2[at]gmail[dot]com. :)
