Yes, it is the end of week 7 already! Only 5 more weeks! Yikes, how time flies!!!
I was SO encouraged to step on the scale this morning and see 2 more pounds gone! That makes a total of 6 for this challenge so far! Woo hoo! I also lost 2 inches, which includes a half inch off of each of my thighs! That is cause for celebration! But maybe not food-related celebration, right?! :-)
Recently I have hit a bit of a mental block, feeling like "I can't do this!" as far as the eating right and so much exercise. But I am just trying to take it one day at a time. I have been exercising 6 days a week, 60 minutes a day, and if I look at the big picture, thinking "I only get one day off a week!" then it is a bit discouraging, but just taking it one day at a time, and making sure I get my exercise in that day is do-able.
My husband also has been exercising, only in the afternoon after he gets home from work. He is a pilot and leaves for work at 5:30 am or earlier, so exercising before work is not really an option. But on the days when he is home in the early afternoon, he will do the 30-day Shred and then walk for 20 minutes afterwards, and often I walk with him. I haven't been counting that time towards my exercise points, but I do think it is good for me to get moving in the afternoons as well, and also nice to have some time to connect with my hubby!
Keep moving, ladies! I am fortunate in that my schedule isn't very different during the summer than the rest of the year. My kids aren't in school yet, so every day is pretty much the same for us. For that reason I think it has been easier for me to stick with the eating and exercising routines that I have set earlier in the year.
