#Mamavation Monday - Back To The Scanning Board!
It's back! My super awesome Crossfit gym is bringing back the Body Composition 90 Day challenge. Last year I brought home the trophy for the ladies. *Big Grins* This year the winners will win a trip for 2. Seriously? I have to get fixed quick so I can compete! My back injury came back in full force after I started running again. It's all in both of my legs and now my feet. It's too long to have an injury and not only am I over it but I'm pretty sure everyone around me is over it too. What does that mean for the 1/2 marathon I'm scheduled to run in 4 weeks? I have no idea. I'm going to try one more option and if that doesn't work I'm pretty sure I'm out. That's gonna mess with me but I can't get worse than I already am. I'm trying to prepare myself to let go. Fingers crossed.
Pros: Lost 5 pounds, trying new recipes, eating a more balanced plate of food, made it through the detox, I'm adjusting what my kids eat, and what I bring home from the grocery store
Cons: Very expensive, walking on the border line with all these nut ingredients while having a son who is allergic (he doesn't get anything that has that ingredient), no more quick trips to the grocery store, there is a lot of extra research and prep work that goes into every meal because it's a new way of cooking
It is a major adjustment but it's also a mind set. It's sort of like working out, once you decide to do it you make the necessary changes to accommodate your life to make it happen. That is the same way in the kitchen. I do see a noticeable difference in my hips and tummy. They are slimming down. I'm losing that bloated belly fat look. Whoot! I'll take it.
The long term goal 37 pounds by the end of the year.
The short term goal lose 3 lbs. per month.
