Getting fit for Life

Checking In…

It’s been a great week of healthy eating and exercise…I never stopped my P90x3 workouts (we are starting week 6 tomorrow) and back to getting my steps up and eating a more reasonable portion of food…sometimes the food is so good I almost inhale it…LOL I will say I am way better at my food control and learning to say no to it when I know I am full.

Friday

  • Weighed 115.8
  • Bodyfat 25%

Saturday

  • Weighed at 115.2
  • Bodyfat 25%

So since Monday Morning I lost 3.2 lbs and 1.5% body fat…I didn’t do measurements I just felt I needed to reset and get myself back on track before my eating and drinking started to control me…I was at 120 lbs one day last week so guess that is a number I didn’t care to see on scale and knew if I didn’t get back on track I’d be feeling sluggish and with summer here I don’t have time for lazy 🙂

Eating healthy doesn’t have to taste bad…it may take a little extra time to prepare but in the end your body will thank you for it.

How did your healthy week go?  Did you get a walk in, bike, added a healthy meal to your day?

I have a new challenge group starting July 6th…message me for more info.

Results from 3 Day Refresh

Finished the 3 day refresh on Monday night… weighed in and did measurements first thing on Tuesday.

I had a loss of 4.6 pounds and 4 inches…🏆I only took measurements on my belly bump scar, belly button and hips.

Overall I didn’t find it too hard… First day I had a bit of a headache…Of course I wanted my munchies and carbs…steak but it was only for 3 days so I knew I could have that in no time.  I have to say the only thing is I don’t think I would do this on a weekend next time… Just because you are out doing stuff and you might get a bit weak from the change of diet… Plus if you want to socialize it would be a bit hard… Especially if you get the hangries…

Side effects I had were head ache and some gas:o…also we ate pretty much the same meals  and didn’t workout just walked around 10,000 steps daily.

Next one is in about 3 months. ..I told Brian it wasgoing to be Labor Day weekend he promptly told me off….lol😂

Working Out on the Road

I am just back from a week-long work trip to two of our offices on the west coast…

I managed to do my PiYo every day using my Beachbody on Demand Club membership to access my purchased Beachbody workouts and just steamed them from my laptop.  I still got up around 5 am sometimes early…the time change for me was -4 hrs so it was a bit hard to adjust too

Calgary Skytower…great view to workout too

Working out in my room in Vancouver…tight fit but it worked 🙂

I did have my chocolate Shakeolgoy 4 out of the 6 days on the road…I do notice that when I don’t drink it I pick at food and nothing seems to really satisfy my hunger…so this is a good thing for when I drink it I don’t want to eat all through the day.

Now food is where I didn’t fare so well…seemed like the restaurants I went to were full of carbs…had some sushi and noodle bowls and plenty of oysters.  With my supper meals I would have an alcoholic beverage 🍷🍹 two at the most. This is a huge improvement of my past where I would sit back and drink just because…but since working out the past year I find I don’t tend do that any more :mrgreen:

Every day I also got at least 10000 steps.walking to the offices or out to supper at night…I enjoyed going out rain (I took my wet-skin rain-suit with me)  or shine just nice to be outside enjoying the sunshine and the very few flowers that i found.

Now that I am back home it will be great to get back into routine and follow 21 Day Fix meal plan; but first I am doing the 3 Day Refresh to cleanse out the toxins I had over the past week and get down to my target weight around 115 lbs…while I was away I gained 3.6 lbs…crazy!

Punta Cana (or Canada as they like to say)

We returned home last week from Punta Cana Blau Natura Eco Park…it was so beautiful there. Perfect for those who love nature, birds and walking.

I got plenty of steps in; after our winter and having an awful sinus cold that made my head spin so bad i got sick a few times…it was great to see the sunshine and get out and walk and feel the warmth…one day I got just under 20,000 steps.  I still had the sinus cold the first few days but nothing like I had the week before.  Just grateful I was still able to make it on vacation 🙂

There are so many birds; the ones I can think of at the moment are

  • Thick Billed Cuckoo
  • Wood Pecker (green back?)
  • Flamingos
  • Snowy Egret
  • Great White Egret
  • Peacocks
  • Common Moorhen
  • American Kestrel
  • White Cheeked Pintail
  • Ducks
  • Snow Geese
  • Night Heron
  • Green Heron
  • Tri Coloured Heron
  • There was a huge mallard duck with an afro type feathers…read that it is probably a cross bread of some sort.
  • Flying we saw lots of Pelicans and Buzzards

At night we saw a huge bat the first few nights we were there but couldn’t get a photo of it…so fast and dark.

Saw a huge frog or toad, and very little ones after a rain storm (lasted maybe an hour).

We didn’t walk the beach this time…just never got to it.  But it was beautiful.
