Goes to show you can still eat out and eat smart and full of flavour and satisfaction, because your goals are worth it! .
Over the time working together, my girls learn how to pick the right and smart choices on a menu and how to account for it within their day depending on how much they willing to sacrifice for a said meal out.
I allow them to send me the menus and I pick the best choice is on there and what is needed to sub out if they make certain choices or if they have a certain meal in mind we make it happen and through repetition and practice it becomes taught practice.
Two weeks down, four to go!! 🎉 This past week was definitely better than the first. I was able to finally move more comfortably, although still had to be careful. I had a scare last Wednesday evening with extreme pain overnight that forced me to take pain meds again, but it ended up just being something typical with the internal sutures and thankfully passed within a day. Everything has gone smoothly since then and my activity level has picked up a little. Instead of 1000-2000 steps per day I was getting in the first week, I’m up to between 6000-7000 these last few days. Of course I’m still far short of my typical 15,000. 😬
I haven’t been extremely tight with food (it’s so hard being home and in the kitchen more!), but am mindful of how much I’m eating given my much lower activity level. Not surprising, I’m up two pounds so far. Hopefully better willpower to stick to my macros this coming week.🤞😊
I miss the gym. 😢 It is very odd not having it as part of my daily routine. I’m trying to be productive in the meantime and keep myself busy. The last few days I’ve worked hard cleaning out the house and donating as much as possible. It feels good getting rid of so much stuff that accumulates over time! I still intend to work on resetting my caffeine tolerance, but haven’t been able to bring myself to give up coffee yet. Maybe next week. Maybe. ☺️☕️❤️
Booty sweat is always real on Ham and Glute focused day. 🍑💪🏻
Contrary to popular belief you do not need to perform a plethora of exercise on leg day to see results. The workout below took me about 50 minutes to complete and let me tell you It was a doozy. Focus on the stretch and contraction and your hammies will be SCREAMING. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
▪️5x10-12 Toes elevated straight leg deadlifts
-superset: 10 each side high step ups (aim for a height that your hip will be at about 120 degrees of flexion with your foot on the step)
▪️5x10-12 lying hamstring curl
-superset: 20 hip ABD machine (sit on the edge of the seat and lean slightly forward to really isolate the glute med)
▪️5x10-12 elevates wide stance sumo squats
-superset: 8 each side curtesy lunges
What do you allowed to define you?...
What do you give power to determining your failure or success ?....
What do you give power to actually impacting on your self-worth and and satisfaction?
So many times we allow people close to us, our environments both internal and external, things both within and outside of our control, to determine our self worth, our self appreciation and satisfaction and our emotions, feelings, and mental state.
We allow it to stop us from putting ourselves first and taking time out to reflect within and upon.
We end up chasing tails and going in circles and relying on way too many things or people to pick us up when we should only be relying on our actions. .
Don't just DO the action.
You get nowhere until you move. Seems silly to say but it is a common occurance - expecting change or opportunity or miracles without moving or putting in the work. .
Put yourself in your peak State to not only perform but to be in a place where you can actually be the person you want to be for YOU and YOUR FAM and those close to you. .
It gets overstated but you really can't pour from an empty cup. .
You'll be half assing. You'll be hyper reacting. You'll be in ALERT state.
