So here I am at day 18 of 56 days on the 8 Week Challenge.
I am officially over the sugar craving, oh yeah!!! No more wanting to eat the Candyland pieces.
I was experiencing some serious hot flashes and heavy duty sweating over the weekend and into Monday. You would have thought I was going through menopause. My poor husband was so sick of hearing “Holy shit is soooo hot in here, I’m dying its so hot” It wasn’t hot, it was totally just me.
So on Tuesday I thought it would be a fantastic idea to get some exercise in at Skyzone, our local indoor trampoline park. First, I’ve never been on a trampoline before, ever! Second, I am out of shape. Third, I am chesty. So glad I strapped the girls down because I’d be sporting some black eyes right now.
I was exhausted by the end and could hardly walk the next day. I’m pretty sure I needed a scooter to get myself around. Okay, okay, it wasn’t that bad, but I likely wouldn’t do it again. I will remain a specter in the sport of trampolining.
Otherwise things are going awesome!!! I had a goal weight in mind for this end of the third week and I hit it on Monday!! Oh yeah baby!!! I have another goal set for the end of the 4th week, so fingers crossed.
Next week we will be away at the cottage so I am hoping that I won’t be seduced by the naughty temptresses called junk food and alcohol. I really want to hit that target.
I did have a small cheat last night. Just a wee one. Our cat of 17 years had to move on to kitty heaven and I was so sad and had many tears. When we got home, I made my husband and I a whiskey to relax. But just one! It was deserved.
But today is a new day, and I’m right back at it. Started off my day with a yummy Greek yogurt breakfast.
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
Handful of blueberries and raspberries
1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp of Hemp Hearts
1 Tbsp of Oats
Small handful of almonds
