bilbl_superSince I don’t have many more days of summer vacation left (less than 2 weeks before I begin my teacher meetings), I was reflecting on how I’ve spent this summer.  I’ve had the best time working out and moving my body.  I have completely loved the routine of getting my workouts in first thing in the morning (most of the time) and working out with Tinkerbell several mornings a week.  Not only that, but I’ve made fitness a way for me to connect with other friends, as well.  Fun and fitness just go together for me.  The Tone It Up girls said to make this week count, and I definitely plan to with my workouts and the way I spend the rest of my days, as well. Here’s this week’s plan:

~
Monday: Excited for Spring cardio (home elliptical) + TIU: Bikini Body Routine
Tuesday: kickboxing & afternoon bike ride + TIU : Best Ab Routine (x2)
Wednesday: spinning + TIU: Thailand Tush & Daisy Duke workout 
Thursday: run/walk intervals or elliptical  + TIU: Sunset Stretch (Beach Babe 2 DVD)
Friday: Stairs at Communications Hill & swimming + TIU: Beach Ball Workout
Saturday: run/walk intervals or elliptical

And don’t forget that I’ve started a little challenge of my own – getting in 150 miles by the time I have to go back to school for my first teacher workday on August 15. I’d love for you to join me.

I post my daily workouts on Instagram, so follow me (or look at the sidebar of this blog) to see what I’m doing!

This week I wasn’t as anxious about my weigh-in because I’ve been weighing myself daily, as per Dr. Beck’s directions.  The nice thing about the daily weigh-ins is that it definitely gives me a lot more information about my body’s natural ebbs and flows when it comes to weight, water retention, etc.  This was the first Wednesday where I wasn’t feeling “in the dark” when I stepped on the scale.

I was up quite a bit on Monday, down 2lbs from that on Tuesday, and then we come to today:

Which means I gained 0.3 lb (which is actually down from yesterday), for a total gain of 2.5 lbs in 2010.

This week I knew the scale wasn’t going to be pretty:

  • Thai food (oh, coconut milk!) on Saturday
  • A small handful of Valentine’s M&Ms
  • Chinese food on Tuesday (not the smartest food choice the evening before the weigh in)

I’m shaking this off, because really, what choice do I have?  I am pissed at myself that I’m a month and a half into 2010 and I’ve gained weight, but really, it’s been my choices and lack of true momentum that has brought me here. It’s time to “shit or get off the pot” as the saying goes. So where do I go from here?

Well, luckily next week I’m off for February Break, so I am going to work my ass off in true Bella’s Boot Camp style:

  • I’m going to make sure to cook nutritious meals (been slacking on that lately), and make at least 3 new recipes, since I’ll have the time.
  • I want to hit the gym and take a few new classes that I haven’t tried before, including: 24Lift (a group weight training class), Turbo Kick (kickboxing), and 24Cycle (spinning).
  • I’ll also keep up with my RLR training.  Next week starts a new level, so the fun will really begin! 🙂
  • Of course, I’m going to drink water ’till my eyes are floating.
  • And I’ll track everything I eat, per usual.
  • I’ll also FINALLY try out the EA Sports Active More Workouts that I’ve been meaning to try for over 3 weeks.

That should be plenty to keep my busy!  I’m actually really looking forward to it because it will be a bit of summer in February, and who doesn’t love that?
