Week 4 - Fitness update!

Hi all!! I'm starting week 3 today of Transform 20 and I'm so excited! 

This program is broken up into chapters, 2 weeks to each chapter and I graduated to chapter 2 this past Saturday.  I felt so accomplished when I finished on Saturday.  There were so many days this past week where I wanted to just stay in bed, skip a day but I made myself get up and pressed play!

On Sundays, I run since its a rest day from Transform 20.  Hubby joins me for this every Sunday.

Now the week begins....

Every morning this week I have felt so bloated - not sure what is going on or where I'm messing up with my nutrition.

20 minutes, but you really get a great workout!

Guys, this makes me soooooo happy!!
This little sticker means I won in the battle against my own mind.
2 weeks, 6 days each week done!

I started with major struggles.  I couldn't do 1 pushup or tricep dip but I finished with doing around 4-6  or each!  I still struggle!  I can't do all of the moves, and its hard to keep moving through the burn, but I do my best.  I slow down when I need to, but keep moving until I'm finished.

The transformer tracker is wonderful.  Here I can see how I progress each week.

I went up in my numbers almost every day.  Thursday was a struggle - this was the one day when I really needed to argue with myself and make myself work out.  I almost didn't.
I got out of bed after 6AM - when I have to be up before 5:30AM.
I was going to take a rest day and just workout Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
But then I realized this would just mess me up for the new week, and it was 6:30, the workout will be done in 20 - so I did it.
I felt week, but at least I had the same number as the week before.
At least I worked out!
That is what counts!

Here are my weight and measurements:

Measurements from 1/4:
Weight 193
Chest: 36"
Left Arm: 12.75"
Right Arm: 12.75"
Waist: 39"
Hips: 48"
Left thigh: 27.5"
Right Thigh: 28"

Measurements from 1/27:
Weight 193
Chest: 42.5"  ( I measured wrong on 1/4)
Left Arm: 13 1/4"
Right Arm: 13"
Waist: 39"
Hips: 46 1/4"
Left thigh: 26 3/4"
Right thigh: 27"
Left calf: 15 1/2"
Right calf: 15 1/4"

So no major changes, but did lose an inch or so in my lower body.  Now I have to figure out what I need to change in my eating habits to start seeing the scale number drop and the inches in my waist go down.  

I feel like I've followed my nutrition fairly well, except for my morning coffee.
My solution?  I'm cutting out my coffee creamer this week.  I'll be having black coffee only so let's see if this makes a difference!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.

So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.
