Workout: 20 min yoga + 30 min weights + 20ish min walking
Ok, to say that the last couple of weeks has been a descent into sugarland is an understatement. It's been accompanied by my lack of focus and disregard for needed sleep. Seriously, one week of no-sugar threw me into the wasteland and I need to pull myself out!
I have been working out at the gym, but kind of back to my pre-gym goals level since I haven't been taking advantage of the 6AM hour. That seriously changes this week, take a look at my goals:
I had the weirdest upper back pain this weekend and "google-learned" that it could be a pinched nerve due to the baby pushing up my rib cage. I will talk to my chiropractor about it this week, but doing some yoga stretches and icing it really helped me.
It made me realize how much I need yoga in my life and I'm really going to make it a priority during that 6AM hour, even if it's only for 20 minutes! I had originally planned to get some more walking cardio in, but I figure with the swimming and the long walks on the weekends I'm covered. I just need to keep up with my walking breaks during work.
Another thing I'll be working on is the NO-SUGAR ADDED days. I really need to focus on this. Sugar is a slippery slope for me and I need to watch it. I'll take it one day at a time and hopefully that will help :)
Plus, guess what - it looks like I've turned a "corner" and can add these babies back in.
I'm not doing the warm salad cases just yet, but I figure this is something :)
In the mix today:
- romaine lettuce mix
- baby carrots
- dressing I luv:
- 2 parts canola oil
- 1 part rice vinegar
- dash of flaxseed
How are you making this week healthier?
