I’m living in a state of perpetual soreness. It’s a light soreness in my shoulders, butt and legs…all.the.time. I’m finished with week 3 of T25 and while I want to murder Shaun T in his sleep, I also want to give him a wet kiss on the lips. I love how I feel after a workout, and love that because I knwo the workout is only 25 minutes, I don’t dread it or find a way to put it off or talk myself out of it. #WIN!
It’s hard to fit it in. I know, you’re like Dani it’s only 25 minutes wtf is wrong with you? — But with the way my children are set up…. LOL
Sheesh. I feel like they know mama’s about to do something productive for herself so they telepathically plot against me “Your turn to cry, Rohan” “Nah, Kaya, I threw a fit last time, you need to make a poopsplosion…Quick before she turns on the DVD player”
But I get it in though. Erryday! (almost)
Here I am about to go into a squat, and about to pass out, or die, or spontaneously combust or something. Lawd, this program wipes me the F out! I have yet to notice any physical changes, and sadly have no weight loss at all, but I am noticing some non-scale victories:
- I have less heart attacks during the workouts
- I can hold my planks longer and do the plank walks a smidge better than week 1
- I look at Tania way less. (for modifiers)
I missed a few days the past 2 weeks and had to do some 2-a-days to catch up, and boy oh boy were they killer. I felt like I was back doin’ insanity, except with insanity Shaun would give you water breaks!
Seriously looking forward to seeing my body change! This belly and backfat business is not for me.
(ummm…I think it takes 8 weeks for ME to see any changes, 12 weeks for my husband to notice, 16 weeks for friends, and 20 weeks for the rest of the world LOL)
I slacked up on my clean eating slightly, I was craving comfort food so I had two treat meals this week. One was green bean casserole (which in the grand scheme of things, it’s not clean, but it’s not horrible) and I had some pasta (but only one bowl….ok … one BIG bowl, but still!). Still snackin healthy, grazing, drinking lots of water, and keeping my calories up for breastfeeding sake.
We’ve cut red meat out of our diet, John cut out poultry too (But when I said I was going to give away our bacon he stopped me…so we’ll see how long this lasts for him) I haven’t 100% cut out poultry (or maybe I have but don’t want to admit it yet lol), but for the most part. We are cooking only fish, shrimp, scallops and tofu at home. Going to start looking into some of those TVP “meats” and see if it’s for us. We’re both still drinking our shakeology daily. John replaces breakfast with it and is steadily losing weight. I replace a snack with it and no weight loss yet, but lots of health benefits! (read: bye bye IBS and migraines!)
Looking forward to week 4, and hopefully some more nonscale (and scale) victories to report!
