Holy moly… I can’t believe it’s already been 24 days since I started this challenge!! Time seriously flies the older you get. I have so many good things to discuss that came from this challenge. But first, I wanted to share with you an example of the workouts I followed during the past 24 days.
I did a mixture of group classes at Lifetime Fitness, at home workouts with Tone It Up & Nike App, and running at White Rock Lake & Katy Trail. My goal was to work out at least 5 days a week, and I accomplished this goal. I prefer working out in the mornings because by the end of the day I’m exhausted. So it just works. Plus, my day starts on such a positive note whenever I do get my workout in first thing!
Here is a list of every single workout I completed (the numbers correspond with the day of the month):
I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks and three days since I started this special 24-day challenge! Time sure does fly, even when you’re sober(ish)!
During week two, I stuck to my meal plan most days and worked out a total of 5 out of 7 days. While I haven’t seen a major loss in pounds (maybe 3-4), my clothes are a little less snug and I feel stronger overall.
Week 1 is officially under my belt…&& it’s not as bad as you’d think, ya’ll!
In case you missed it, I started a 24 day challenge with a group of girls on April 1! After sticking with it for the past week or so, I can already feel a difference. My body has gotten stronger, I can run longer and my energy lasts until the evening. Working out first thing in the morning has been such a great way to start my day!
Before getting to work, I know that I have done something positive for myself and can focus on everyone else for the remainder of the day. It also helps set the tone for my eating habits. Why waste a hard workout by eating something unhealthy for my body?
Words can’t describe the feeling I had after leaving this magical resort. I left pampered, relaxed and full. Not just full of food from our indulgent all-inclusive stay, but also full of happiness and a new sense of peace. Ahhhh…I wish I could live in this state of zen forever!
After a busy start to the year, a break from the daily workflow was much appreciated. World class service, a modern atmosphere, unlimited amounts of delicious food, champagne, and tequila with NOTHING on the agenda. This trip was perfection.
We arrived in Cancun on a Thursday afternoon and stayed until Tuesday afternoon. While 5 nights and 6 days was a good amount of time, I easily could have stayed 3 more nights.
Before arriving, we researched the resort through YouTube and found several clips of bloggers describing their experience at the resort. We saw how much there was to do at the resort and planned to get there with nothing on the agenda.
