Getting it Right

Last week, I only exercised on Saturday. The good thing is that Saturday started a trend of consistency; I exercised Sunday and Monday as well. Go me, go me! I’ve been doing HIIT on my treadmill to get my cardio in, since I haven't been able to stick to the Turbo Jam calendar. I am hoping to get my hands on Turbo Fire over the Thanksgiving weekend. After ordering it on Ebay and the seller being a rip-off, I wasn’t motivated to try buying it again. Hopefully, I’ll be able to start it on Monday if everything goes as planned.

A few meals I've had:

Noodle stir-fry w/ veggies and chicken

Chopped chicken breast, baby spinach, shredded cheese, and mustard on Oroweat Thin

What a Time...

When we finally have a plan and getting things on track, life has a way of knocking you back a few steps....My DS (dear son) was hospitalized on November 12 for an eyelid infection. Poor baby had to stay there for two days, that's how bad it was. Thankfully, with 10 days of antibiotics the swelling went down and he was back to his normal activities. As if that wasn't enough, the day we got home, he started coughing. SN: The nurse did say that his immune system was suppressed because of his eyelid infection. Now he has bronchitis, a virus. Apparently a lot of kids are getting it because of this crazy weather. We have to give him a puff of an inhaler every 4-6 hours to help with his coughing. Other than that, he's doing great. Hubby and I won't be doing a lot of traveling to Thanksgiving dinners on tomorrow. Doc said it’s best to only send DS to the babysitter and home. He will be going to his granny's and I MAY go to my mom's for dinner, since there won't be many people there.

Needless to say the week he came home, I didn't do one single exercise. However, my diet has been on point. That's the latest...

I started Turbo Jam last night! Since I'm so late in the week starting, I will let Sunday and Monday serve as rest days and Tuesday - Saturday will be my workout days. That being said, I have to makeup the 20 minute workout and Ab Jam that I didn't do on Wednesday, because I was busy making up the workout for Tuesday. I'm going to try to squeeze in one of the two missed workouts this evening.

Today got off to a slow and late start. *I knew there was a reason why my sleep felt so good. I didn't pack my lunch last night, so I have to figure out what I'm going to grab for lunch. I'm thinking maybe a grilled chicken salad. Hmmmm...

I didn't start Turbo Jam

See what had happened was....This little guy kept me busy and then he had the nerve to go to sleep on me in MY bed!!

Seriously I didn't start Turbo Jam last night. BUT tonight is THE NIGHT!! To keep me accountable, I'm posting this. I will definitely update if when I complete it tonight!!

Back on the Grapefruit Juice!

Last week was NOT a good week as far as exercising goes! I only exercised twice. My eating habits weren't out of control, so I guess that's a plus. All in all, could've been better, could've been worse.

On Sunday, I started back drinking unsweetened grapefruit juice. On one of my previous posts a couple of years ago, I talked about the success I had with it. Eventually, I plan on doing a juice fast once or twice a week to see some weight loss. Lord knows I could use it now; I ate more than my share of candy these last few days.

This week is the start of Turbo Jam. I'm already behind on 1 workout, but I'm still going to PUSH. I will be doing the 20 min workout and Ab Jam this evening. I will be happy to get to the point in my journey when I get my butt up and exercise in the morning. That way, anything extra that I do in the evening, will be an added bonus. To stay on track with my diet, a trip to the grocery is definitely needed!
