Happy Thursday (or Friday if you're reading) lovebirds!
I haven’t done a post again this week due to just a sheer lack of what to say. I did want to touch on Operation Red Bikini today, though, so here I am, in all my “not ready to wear a bikini” glory.
I know so many of you are pinning and hashtagging and tweeting and blogging about your ORB efforts and I couldn’t be prouder. I try to show my love and support to every single picture. There are over 800 pictures with #operationredbikini on Instagram. How freakin’ amazing!
Here is where I stand:
Weight-My weight has been at a standstill the past few weeks, due to poor choices for Mardi Gras and “cheating” on weekends.
This is why I have committed to giving up cheat meals for Lent. No fried food, no cream sauce, cheese-covered anything, no ice cream, no cake, no candy for 40 days. I can do it. I won’t go cold turkey on everything but lettuce and rabbit food though. I will stay within my calorie allowance for the day, every day, and I will use my judgement on snacking. I am currently working on eating a little less protein because I think that also is a small factor in my lack of a loss. More on that in another post.
Work outs-I’ve been working out with my husband on a schedule, which is what I needed. With better work hours, we get off around the same time and have time for the gym and dinner. He works two body parts per day and rarely does cardio, so I’ve been working out with him then doing my cardio after. I feel like I’m actually making progress so I’ll continue working out with him for the time being.
Half Marathon Training/Foot Injury- Well, I’m currently at a place where I can run like hell on the treadmill with zero pain during or after, but I run less than half a mile outside and I’m in pain for 2-3 days. It’s very frustrating. I officially cancelled our hotel on Wednesday and I’ve pretty much come to terms with the fact that I won’t finish that half with my group. It is sad and expensive and I learned to not register for another race till about a week before. No refunds-not fun. Training and registration has cost me a small fortune and I haven’t even been able to participate. Lesson learned, and I’ll start back running outside again soon enough. I’m just proud I didn’t give up on other workouts because the old me would’ve.
Red Bikini-I tried it on the other day. While I see an improvement, I’m still not where I want to be, and May will be here before we know it. Time to buckle down girls!
Have you not been tracking your food as much as you used to? Have you skipped the gym a few times this week? Well if so, here is your kick in the ass to get it back in gear and remember your goals. Will your current actions get you closer to your goal? If not, you must change it up! We can and will do this!
P.S. Be on the lookout for another Operation Red Bikini giveaway very soon!
