Today is Day 4 of the 21 Day Weight Loss Challenge for Mommy Bloggers! This is a challenge put on by Dustin Maher, author of Fit Moms for Life. I'm getting my post in later again due to a day full of kids sports. I actually just finished my workout about an hour ago. Today I did a mix of cardio and strength training. Feeling the burn! My proud moment today was when my husband brought home cupcakes from work and I didn't touch one! They were red velvet too. The old me just a couple of days ago would of pounced on the chance to eat one. There actually ended up being only one left and I did the right thing, and I just walked it outside to the garbage can. I didn't even need that kind of temptation sitting in my kitchen like that, lol!
I noticed I'm not drinking quite as much water as most of the other ladies in the challenge. I'm trying though, just never been a huge plain water drinker. I love vitamin water, but I don't think that counts for this program. My downfall is coffee, which I do subtract my points for because that is not going away. I quit drinking soda last year though, so I feel fortunate to not have to struggle with that one. In fact, I don't even miss it! For lunch I had a whole grain/natural peanut butter sandwich (no jelly). I am amazed at just by switching to whole grain bread how much fuller I feel after a sandwich. I'm not going to lie and say I think it is delicious compared to a nice sandwich made of soft white bread. It isn't bad though, and I am loving the benefit of feeling good and full afterwards.
Tomorrow will be my designated one day a week that is my off day. Not off from the diet, just off from exercise. I have noticed a couple other ladies are doing the Sunday thing off as well. I figure six planned days of workouts a week is enough. Enough I tell you!
