I had planned on blogging about each day, and even posting photos of some of the meals... but life happens, and unfortunately I just don't get time or think to blog about it like I used to.
WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!! Christopher and I both did all 6 days of workouts
and stuck to the diet. There was one day that he was stuck at work and
got the shakes, so he grabbed a burger, so that was his one cheat. Mine
was today. I had a vanilla chai latte from Dunkin Donuts. I had a
really emotional day and couldn't stop crying - I'm ok, it was just a
series of bad stuff going on and hormones not helping. Crying helped,
but I felt down til I finally got to work out. Then I was stoked
because we'd finally finished the 6-day program. :) That latte was the
only thing other than water and a few cups of chamomile tea that I'd had
to drink all week. Now I always have a water bottle close by.
The day before we started, (Christopher had the day
off), he made a grocery list of everything we would need to make the
meals for 2 people for all 6 days. It was quite a hit to our grocery
budget - and then some-, but he reminded me that we used to spend way
more than that on junk food and fried foods etc. He's right. So, we got
it all home - I have never seen so much green stuff in my fridge before!
He immediately got to work on prepping stuff for the first day's meals.
If he had time, he'd prep and cook meals, and for the days he was at
work 10-10, I'd fix all of his meals in the morning after work, and pack
them for him. He and I haven't worked so well together as a team in a
really long time. I think this ended up being GOOD for our marriage!
This was something we did together and we supported each other the whole
way. It was a really good week. I hope the next 90+ days keep us as
strong a team. It'll sure be a test.
We don't really
have room in the budget for Mother's Day, but I did buy myself a
yoga mat which was on sale at Kmart. I never in a million years would
have thought I would ever buy a yoga mat LOL! I've watched part of the
Power 90 DVD and know that there's quite a bit of power yoga in it, and
my knees on that hardwood floor are not happy campers. It's going to be a
long time before I'm able to do some of those moves well or even
correctly, but I'll work at them every time.
really excited to start Power 90 on Monday. We've both lost a few
pounds, and an inch here or there, but also I have noticed some real
muscle gain. Even in places I never expected to. Like my forearms and
my shoulders. It's weird. My arms and back definitely feel a lot
stronger than before. And it was only the 6-day fat burn DVD! I can only
imagine what Power 90 will do!
A lot of people have
asked if we're going to do P90X too. Over the last few years I heard
people talk about that program as if it was only something athletes or
crazy people would attempt. I really hope that after 90 days of Power 90
that we'll be in the shape we need to be in to do P90x. I would love
to say, YES I DID IT! I'll feel that proud after doing Power 90 too,
but P90X has that name recognition.
Tomorrow is the
high school chorus picnic. While I'm not on the Fat Burn diet anymore, I
still don't plan on eating unhealthy. I do look forward to a nice
grilled burger though. I may just skip the potato salad.
