Mamavation Monday

I am fully back in the swing of things and it feels good. I got up each morning last week and fit in my current workout - The 30 Day Shred, level 3, followed by a 2-mile Walk at Home routine for a cool down. It feels good. The Level 3 workout is really a good one, it is hard and I feel like I am getting progressively better.

I have decided that when I finish the 30 Day Shred, that I will return to P90X. I think my goal will be to do the workouts in the morning and then in the evening either fit in a 1 mile walk or Ab Ripper X, depending on the day of the week. After really starting to be able to do some of the Ab exercises in the 30 Day Shred, it inspires me to want to do Ab Ripper X. Let's see if I can stick by it when I start in a couple of weeks.

After a family wedding and a lot of eating out this weekend, I think I am ready to get back on track with eating and tracking. I started out really great today, until I got to work and found out I had a lunch meeting. I guess I could have brought my packed lunch, but in the end I decided to do my best to eat a balanced meal. I filled my plate first with salad and then treated the meat and other sides as sides, having only a minimal amount. I almost avoided the temptation of the dessert, but grabbed a cookie to go after the meeting.
