Well, I finally got myself back to the gym last week. I had an awesome Monday and then unfortunately I slept wrong on Monday night and my shoulder and neck were killing me the rest of the week.
I did my first day with the EA Sports Active but my shoulder prevented me from doing it the rest of the week. I did do intervals on the treadmill at the gym. I have been avoiding the treadmill due to the pounding on my knee, but it didn't hurt my knee at all and it felt so good.
Fortunately I don't think that the working out portion of my weight loss plan is going to be hard. I love going to the gym. Especially because I am a stay-at-home mom and that is my time away from my girls for the day. :-)
Eating healthy is where I really struggle. This week I posted a menu plan on my Unforgettable Childhood site with healthy main entrees for suppertime. That is my first baby step to eating healthy as a family.
I also need to focus on drinking water this week. I never drink water. To be honest with you, I drink coffee all day long.
I don't have a lot of weight to lose, about 15 pounds. My main focus is getting fit, feeling good and changing our families eating habits. I hope next week I can write about getting off a couple of pounds. I know that there are a lot of women in the Mamavation Campaign that are working to tackle a lot larger weight loss goals. You should go and watch their videos here.
I made a deal with my hubby that when the first 10 pounds comes off I am buying a pair of Earth Footwear Shoes. I have had my eye on them for awhile now and I think that it would be a great reward for accomplishing that goal.
Don't forget to tune into MomTV tonight to watch Mamavation at 10pm EST/9pm CST.
