This is the last week of March. It is hard to believe that another months is over. It was just three months ago that I started to change my life and become healthier.
Now 35 pounds lighter counting, I can tell you I feel so good. Not only I look better, but my energy level is higher too. It is great to be outdoors with my son and be able to run, walk and keep up with him.
What I consider my biggest challenge right now? Keeping my muscles confused so I can lose more weight. I have been doing elliptical and walking. Trying not to do the same everyday. I feel that I the next day I am not sore, it probably was not good. I can feel that I am used to walk now, so I have to try other things. This week it is going to be zumba on the xbox and a yoga DVD.
How do you shake up your workouts?
Have a great week and thanks for reading.
Last week was busy at work. And also too many things going on at home. I was almost able to stick to my plan, but I was not totally at it. Time to stop, rethink, re-group and start all over again.
The schedule at work is changing and there is going to be more late days, now Mondays schedule is going to be until 7 pm, which for sure will not allow me to be at the Mamavation show, so after a lot of consideration I have decided that I will not be applying this time. I wish I could be more active on twitter and be present at the show, to apply, but with this new schedule I know it would be impossible. Sad, but I will be hazing with the applicants at night.
I will continue with my walks (or elliptical) and the #2weekchallenge.
I got a water infuser pitcher that is helping me drink more water. I am in love with it, and really has helped the whole family. I had tried before to put fruit on the water but the flavor was not really there, but with this pitcher, now I can really taste the fruit. (I am not being paid to say this, I just love the product...)
The family is AGAIN, getting sick. I just wish all the bugs went away. But we have to deal with the situation the best we can. I am just praying it is something mild. Last time it was bad. Need to stay active and with energy, so it someone has natural remedies, please share.
Thank you and have an awesome week.

I did the virtual Mamavation 5k, did you?
I walked most of it, as I am still training my body to run, but I finished the 3.1 miles and then continue until I finished my daily 5k.
Now, I am ready to start tomorrow the #2weekchallenge.
I feel I do need to tweet to @Mrbookieboo about my workouts. I have been walking, but due to other things going on, I did not continue with the workouts. I guess that lowering my exercise rate and the fact that my body is adapting cause me to stop losing weight. I have not gained back, but I did not lose.
So now what?
Well my plan is to re-evaluate my eating habits again, start the #2weekchallenge and keep walking my 5 miles.
For my meal plan, I want to replace for 5 days my breakfast and lunch with my protein, banana and peanut butter shake. For dinner I want to have either chicken or fish with veggies. Then after that I want to get back to what I was eating during the ambassador program with Omron Fitness.
Let's tweet to each other for the #2weekchallenge. I know now I do need that motivation and support I had during the last couple of weeks. So cheer me on, because I know I can do it.
What are your plans for this week?
