Weigh In Wednesday
So I am up 0.4 lbs over the last week and I am completely okay with it. Considering I took 3 days off tracking on My Fitness Pal and was only able to sneak in 3 workouts last week it is a miracle I did not gain more. Especially when you recall that my main food group over the weekend consisted of cupcakes. Lots and lots of cupcakes.
(Cupcake taste off in the hotel room!)
I appreciate the return to normalcy all the more after consuming so many sweets. It is easier to let those sugar cravings go and focus on real food when you can no longer look at a cupcake without feeling a little sick.
Does anyone think the same way? I never crave healthy food so much as the day after I over do it!
In other news, I’ve made it a priority to get to the gym this week despite many many other things going on. My workouts are condensed, yet challenging thanks to new moves from Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp. I did not follow the program as prescribed but I definitely picked up on some new exercises that will be incorporated moving forward.
My favorite this week is the cross-over push-up!
Staying motivated is tough but I have found that the right playlist can push me through even the most grueling workout. For the strength portion I normally listen to the Kayne West Pandora station (because I am klassy, like Kim Kardashian). But when it comes to cardio, I am a bit more particular. I find that a mix of up-beat pop songs with high BPMs (beats per minute) coupled with slower, steadier music is the perfect combination to keep me moving forward.
For long runs I have been loving all things Hans Zimmer and Blue Man Group. The music contains no words, just beats and allows you to focus on your breathing. I recommend you give it a try!
