So here I am in the middle of week 2 of the Mommy Bloggers 21 Day Weight Loss Challenge with Dustin Maher from Fit Moms for Life. I just turned into my points of my progress for the week. Looks like I’m somewhat in the middle. I was certainly impressed by some of the numbers of my fellow bloggers! Made me feel like a slacker! While I think I’m doing good with the exercises, despite the knee injury, I think it is the diet where I keep loosing track.
So the work outs have been good. The squats and back lunges are still hurting my knees. Icing them at night does not seem to be working as well as it did before. However, I love that both my push-ups and plank have already started to improve!
Trying to get through the whole workout is still an issue. Usually 2/3 of the way through I’m interrupted by a certain little one who doesn’t like that I’m not paying attention to him. If he gets really upset, I use him as the “weight” for strength training. He loves that! I’ve been searching for like “mother’s helper” to play with him after work while I’m go through my routine, but haven’t had any luck. I’ve tried singing to him while I go through the motions, but that no longer works either. It’s his teething. It makes me much more fussier than his usual self. When I know all he needs to feel better is a hug, it is hard to concentrate on the fitness. Plus, as I said with anything, my son always comes first.
The meals are going okay. When I’m at home, I eat healthy. When I’m at work, that is when things slip. It’s all about making good decisions and saying no to temptations.
So have I seen results? While I haven’t stepped on my EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale yet (review to come soon!), I do feel that my pants are looser. So either I’ve lost some weight, or I’ve stretch my pants out. Let’s hope it is the first one of the two!
Fingers crossed that I can do better this week! Good luck to my fellow bloggers!
