Hey all! I just wanted to check in. I have actually been seeing a drop in numbers on the scale this week so that means that my plateau is over! Woot! I know that if you have ever been on a diet, weight loss journey that you know how frustrating it could be. I upped my water intake, increased my exercise by throwing in something different and buttoned up my eating. I also started doing a little mini workout before bed. I do as many regular pushups as I can, I plank for as long as I am able and I do ab rows. So, I quickly target my core, abs and arms. These are the three spots that I am working on.
In my Core Focus Challenge group I have been sharing core workouts that you can do at your desk and also doing a video of one core workout a day. So incidentally my core is getting a great workout this week! I am hoping to continue to be mindful enough to continue these mini exercises after the challenge group is over.
My 5k is in 4 days. I'm trying not to freak out. I've only checked the weather report a zillion times. My running mentor has been great and given me many helpful tips. I still have this irrational fear that I won't be able to complete it. I say irrational because I have been doing everything I can to train. I am tapering off a little this week to save my shins. I also completed a "practice" 5k last week so I know that I can physically do it. I'm sure being surrounded by others will be quite motivating. We shall see! xoxo Court
Shakeology came today! I was a little nervous that I didn't time it properly! Whew!
