Um, yeah, so I ROCK!!!!! Seriously, I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but I’m loving it right now! I can actually see definition happening in my abs again. I can see the results of these workouts.
I’m alternating between cardio one day, and weight training/abs the next. According to the HRM, it’s not a high burn, but I eat only the calories it gives me and figure that my body will work itself out with the rest. I know I’m doing my heart and my muscles good. I know that I’m working toward longevity. I know that I’m doing the RIGHT things, and as long as I am, I know that the scale does not matter.
It’s funny, I used to be SO emotionally invested in that number on the scale. And yes, it is still important to a degree. But I don’t allow it to rule my life. My life is about being healthy, not skinny. If healthy for me means curvy, then so be it. As long as I’m eating clean (at least 80% of the time), watching my sodium and cholesteral and fat levels, and getting all my nutrients in. As long as I’m excercising my body. As long as I’m doing healthy things, I’m living a healthy life. And I feel fantastic!!
I’m having a hungry week, with my period almost due, but I’m not freaking out about it. For example, last night, I made a stir fry that was mostly meat, with some veggies. It was 4.5 oz turkey thigh, with celery, mushrooms, spinach and onions. Holy Protein, Batman! But I needed it, and I knew it. And it kept me satisfied right through my nighttime craving time that I always get during PMS week.
Okay, back to work! Have a great day!
