One Week Left

I have one more week of 21 Day Fix Extreme work outs.  They are great work outs, very challenging and even though I'm not able to do everything... I am able to enough to feel like I've gotten a good work out.  Again, some of my moves have to be modified more than their modified work out.  That's the thing I like about this series... it does have a person that's doing the modified version.  I ended up ordering the video's because I'm borrowing them from a neighbor and I liked them so much that I wanted my own.  $55 I feel is worth it if I use them enough... which I will, it'll be put in my rotation.

So what's next?  I'm not sure.  My thoughts are I either do my "The Firm" video program - which is 30 days, each work out is between 52 and 63 minutes.  Those are long work outs, but there's two days of rest within a week.  Which I like.  OR I do my Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred... which means no rest days (work outs without rest days are HARD).  This is about a 37 minute work out each day.

I have other options as well... My gym membership kicked back in this month (I haven't been there yet - boo!) so I could work in either a class, biking, treadmill or weights into my routine on top of these.

Now to the nitty gritty.  This past week was not my best.  Not even close.  I ate a lot of sweets and some other not so good food for me.  The good news is that I continued to do my work outs, tracked all my food (even if it wasn't pretty) and tried to compensate for those naughty times by eating better at my next meal.  I did end up losing 2.2 lbs this week.  Now that doesn't mean that the weight won't show up later (because it sure can); I was just happy that it didn't come up on the scale today.

Coming up this weekend I have some fun plans... and you know what fun means: hard food choices.  I have a friend and her girls coming to stay over Saturday night and then I'm hosting our annual girls Christmas party on Sunday.  This is an extremely fun event but it very much centered around food - the last few years the theme has been appetizers.  So typically those are not healthy choices.  I'm going to have to work very hard at not over eating.  The good part about the party is that it starts at 11 - which means that if I do end up eating like crap, I have a good part of the evening to make up for it.  I know that's what I'll do (I just know me).

Anyway - I'm just going to try and focus on being good all of the other days of the week.  That way - two days of festivities shouldn't really affect me if I keep up my work outs and eat right the rest of the time.  It's the 80/20 rule right???

Oh... another progress report I can give is since I started working out again at home (second week in September) I've now lost 29.6 lbs.  It's about 3 months time.  So remember that - hard work and good choices really does pay off... and I feel amazing.  I even want to fix myself up again -- wear make-up, do my hair and dress nice-ish (don't get me wrong, this girl loves her sweatshirts and yoga pants).

Well here's to another successful week under my belt.

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After!
