Weekly Workout Update

Yikes it’s been a crazy week couple of weeks! Fortunately, I’ve been swamped with freelance work so I can’t exactly complain about that, but it has meant less time focusing on my blog. 

It’s also been crazy hot outside (at least crazy hot to me), so walks with Will have been less frequent than I would have liked. But I did get to take him out on a couple bike rides, which we both loved!

  

Anywho, as for my workouts, I’ve been really proud of myself. I’ve gone to the gym about 7 or 8 times in the past two weeks & have busted out a few quick at-home workouts when I had the chance.

I’ve also been eating better although still not great. It’s hard when you have every intention of making the right decision but then you’re not the one always choosing what’s for dinner. I can only control so much while I live with my parents. But I’ve definitely improved my portion control so I know that’s made a big difference.

As for physical changes, I can’t see any yet. But I’m trying to stay patient telling myself that will come. One thing I have noticed, however, is that the scale is slowly counting backward. By slowly I mean at a glacial pace, but perhaps that’s just because I have zero patience.

I did a lot more cardio this week because 1. It let out a lot of frustration & stress 2. I did a lot of body weight & dumbbell at-home exercises throughout the day.

 
 Nothing particularly special but the main thing is that I’m sticking to it & staying active. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t proud of myself for that!

Now my biggest goal for the next week is to drink more water. Good Lord if I had a dime for every time I was told I needed to drink more water I’d be a gazillionaire. I know I need to but I’ve never been one to drink a lot. Maybe if I start drinking enough water the weight will slide right off, eh? It’s worth a shot! 

What’s one of your health goals for the next week?
