There are seven of us that have joined together to form a cash pot. I am in it to win it! My main problem is lack of muscle tone. Due to an injury, I am unable to do most forms of high impact exercise and often have trouble with low impact exercise, so finding exercise that doesn’t exacerbate my issue has been difficult. After our eldest was born, I ran 3-5 miles a day, did step aerobics, and last winter I was skiing. Those things won’t be happening. I have found that I am most often able to tolerate swimming, with no flip turns, and some body weight exercises. I am going to focus on portion control, the types of foods I am eating, and drinking more water, as I find exercise that works for me.
I had my first weigh in this week. Ouch. December’s traveling and holiday parties did me no favors, up five pounds. The good news is that most of that five pounds is probably water retention from poor water intake, so just drinking more water and reducing my salt intake will eliminate it (historically holds true for me).
Step one, I prepped all of my week’s veggies and salads today. Then we had pizza for dinner. I did make a healthy lunch of chicken stir fry with bok choy, at least.
I am also baked these protein bars, but I made many amendments to the recipe (as usual). I’m eating these as breakfast or as a quick afternoon snack.
At least I have my cute new pvBody workout clothes to help me push through!
