Can you tell from the title that I just got back from a run?
I am fighting this week strong! I have made some bad choices, but I have also been working hard to not let them rule me.
I refuse to give up. REFUSE! This whole lifestyle part means that I will be doing this forever. Sometimes I win, and sometimes I don't, but I get up and get back on track.
This may all seem like a repetitive theme on my blog, however, this is what I am going through, it is all part of the journey for me. Win, lose, get back up and repeat (hopefully lose better)!
Today I won with my diet, and I also won with my run! I kept my calories in check, and then I did a 7k speedwork run where I pushed my two kids in their stroller and still ran one mile at a 12min pace and another in just UNDER 12 min!
This morning I weighed just to "check in" not as an official weigh-in. I was up by 1lb. Guess what? I am absolutely not stressing about it. Why? Because I just started the new phase of Chalean, the "Lean Phase" and that means using different muscles and that has water retention written all over it. Remember last month when I worked my ass of the first week and then lost NOTHING! It was the same thing, I was retaining water, and then the next week when I BOMBED diet and exercise-wise I still lost 2lbs. This month will be different. I will not bomb next week, I will continue keeping my head in the game and know that regardless what the scale says I am doing the best that I can and that results WILL come!
Speaking of the Lean Phase, WOW, it is intense! I can see why most people see the best results this month! Hopefully mine are great this month too! The compound moves and number of reps are awesome. I know I am going to want to repeat Chalean again already!
