Week 1 is done and I started very strong and ended slow because I got sick. I am having a lot of fun with the challenge and besides the workouts I am still walking after work.
It takes lots of will power to complete a challenge like this one. I have to get up earlier than normal to complete the workouts designed by the awesome @mrbookieboo and then I go to work. Then I come home, revise my son's homework and out to the street I go again to walk.
I have to thank my husband for his help with the chores in the house. I think that he is happy that I am losing the weight, so he has been helping with dishes, dinner and small things. That allows me more time to go out on my walks.
Towards the end of the week I found myself feeling really weak and without energy. I got sick. I was diagnosed with pneumonia and it hurts when I breath. So I had to slow down and rest. I did modified versions of the workouts however I did not go for my walk.
It is kind of funny because before I used to hate to workout and now I miss my walks, but I had to take some time to recover to finish this great opportunity strong. Today I can say I feel much better and I think I am ready to back to almost normal.
I am happy to report that I lost 5 pounds this week for a total of 15 pounds since applying to be an #IheartOmron ambassador.
For this week I want to get creative with my meals and I want to get back into the routine of walking and doing the workouts. I am also challenging myself to drink more water.
How are you staying active this week?
