Wow with being sick with a cold and my monthly curse at the same time I was totally out of commission for almost 2 weeks. But I’m better now and going strong!! So far this week I’ve been to the gym three times and I’m trying new classes.
Yesterday I posted my workouts on my fitness page, I haven’t been updating it this past month but I plan on logging all my workouts daily. This was my workout for yesterday.
Gym: 25 mins Elliptical 250 calorie burn
Gym: 45 mins Wynndurance
Since being sick, my eating habits went out the door. All I wanted was comfort food and to be honest, most comfort foods are very high in carbs. But I’m back on track and feeling fine. I’m happy with my weight now but I would love to those infamous last 10 lbs but I’m not sweating it, I’ll get there when I get there. The hard part now is staying motivated and to not lose myself and fall back into old habits. I feel that maintaining is just as difficult as trying to lose weight. The goal is to not gain weight and maybe lose a few more so even though I’m happy where I’m at right now it’s still a challenge not to indulge and let things slide.
This weekend we’re going to visit my family for Thanksgiving…Yeah Baby!!! I’m so looking forward to my mom’s cooking and seeing my sista, these two ladies are so important in my life. Luv you! I’m also looking forward to seeing my dad, nephews, uncles etc.. didn’t want to leave anyone out 🙂
Monkey Brains for dinner…What??!?!?!??! Yup …Ok well not really, last year we watched the Indian Jones movie with our kids and they were eating monkey brains, eeeww!! GROSS!!! a few days after watching that movie I made this sausage stuffed squash for the first time so when my kids asked what’s for dinner… of coarse I said…Monkey Brains!!! and the name stuck LOL.
*No monkeys were harmed in the making of this recipe* 🙂
