21-Day Challenge

Last week, with the help of a FB friend, I started a 21-day Eat Clean Challenge. I thought...woo hoo, a way to finally get my butt back on track. I know how/what to eat, I just wasn't doing it as evident by my lackluster food tracking for the nutritionist sessions.

So I did it last week. I ate fairly clean for 6 days with, we wont count the cheat meals,...Ok 2 cheat meals. I'm allowed 1. But hey, the boyfriend went to the movies last night and I did not want to cook. And I'm not beating myself up for it either.

I did manage to see some numbers on the scale that I haven't seen in the 5 months since moving to Sacramento - like the 165s! I managed to F* that back up by 2 lbs on this mornings weigh-in (damn, extra cheat meal). But I am torching calories (1100 on Saturday alone) during my workouts so I will hopefully burn that and some this week.

On top of wearing mismatched shoes, I also picked up some great information and new kettlebell moves at the Health/Fitness Fair in Auburn yesterday.

So, I have 2 things I need to do over the next 2 weeks: I am planning to add an additional kickboxing class to my schedule. I also need to start packing/planning my food on the weekends. I keep thinking that I don't and that's when I get into trouble. So my cooler will have to be a permanent fixture by my side.

How/what did you do this weekend? Any fun plans?

"I also need to start packing/planning my food...I keep thinking that I don't and that's when I get into trouble." OOHHH, Me, Too! The whole planning thing is important but makes me grumble.

You were so thoughtful to leave me the link for hip stretches. Thank you so much!
