I had to go back and read last week's goals. It's not like I actually worked at them. No, just keeping up with some regular strenuous exercise while on vacation and eating all kinds of Cape goodies was work enough. But I did manage a new recipe: homemade Bran muffins, (from my vegan friend, not sparkpeople, that's next though). Oh they are so good, especially with a touch of blueberry preserves, then heated a tad, JUST a tad. MMMM, hard to stop at just 1. So I keep them in the freezer. (nobody else around here wants them anyway)
Yoga? does not go well with Sinus Infection + Ear Infections. Might make a funny video for YouTube, but I prefer to maintain what's left of my dignity and keep both feet on the ground ... except when they are joining me in the backyard lounger. Which is where I prefer to spend the majority of my "recovery period". I've been told I have about 2 more days before the meds kick in and I actually start to feel better. So ...
Results are mixed, and no, I did not got back to that cute little boutique downtown and buy any jewelry. BUT, I did hit the ole internets up for some organic skin care. Since it's probably about 2 weeks away, via free shipping, that should be enough time to EARN a new reward. But how?
1. Ramp up the intensity 3x a week. I still have a couple days of rest ahead, but then I can sweat it out at the gym and at home with the boys the rest of the week. No problem.
2. The hard one: Plan Meals Ahead, Make Shopping List, Stick to the Plan.
I can do it. So far I've been pretty good at maintaining current weight, while still slimming the bod a bit here and there = Building Muscle. Always good, especially as the boys grow bigger and stronger ... I can still stay ahead for awhile longer.
And the best part? Salad/veggies is pretty close to becoming a Habit. Almost there, I won't know for sure till the seasons change and there's less fresh stuff to choose from at the store, once the farmer's market is closed. But still, looking like a habit from here. And ... big one ... at least one child hesitates and actually checks out what I'm eating before he says "no thanks". Baby steps.
