Hi Dear Friends!
Another week down!
This was the hardest week for me yet, as we started back to school after 3 weeks off. I forgot how exhausting it is to get my dear third graders back into a routine. They did a great job, but boy was I EXHAUSTED at the end of each day.
I'm linking up with Gina at Third Grade Tidbits for another Slim Down Saturday.
Here was my week:
This week was tough! I didn't do enough meal prep for the week, and found myself craving sweet treats. It was also back to school for me this week after our long holiday break, and it was a struggle to fit in those work-outs each day. I did it, but it was a struggle.
Strength: I finally made sure I was drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day. I have always doubted whether or not this makes a difference, I must say I definitely think drinking lots of water makes a HUGE difference.
Something I need to do better this week: Meal prep.. It helps me stay organized and not reach for things I don't need to be eating. So this morning, I prepped most of my meals for the week. I have my oatmeal ready for breakfast, brown rice with grilled chicken for lunch, sauted onions and green peppers to use in my omelet, and I'm working on these yummy healthy peanut butter oatmeal cookies.
Goal for next week: Only 1 diet soda a day....
My word for the week: Strong
I need to be strong enough mentally to force myself to work out on those days I just don't feel like it and strong enough to stay away from the foods that I should not be eating.
AND this is the recipe from the Skinny Fork that I'm getting ready to try. It looks GREAT!
