Can’t believe it is time to write another mamavation post already! This week has really flown by. All in all though it has been a good week. Things were pretty busy and at times a tad crazy at casa de Habegger. The kids school schedule was off due to early release, so that made things even more interesting, but we survived & spent lots of quality time together.
I am really getting used to all of the kiddos being in school. It has been extremely nice to be able to go to the Y almost everyday this week and get some good runs in. In fact this would be the first week of workouts since leaving mamavation. I had been really lax about not only my workouts but also what I was eating. Trust me the scale may not have always reflected it, but I sure noticed. Thankfully in the few months I took off my weight didn’t change more then a few pounds.
The “fun” is over now and workouts and runs are in full swing. I even got in an even 50 burpees this week in honor of @Gruntstyle‘s birthday aka Drill Sargent Daniel Alarik. I posted a happy birthday on his facebook page and told him in honor of his birthday I would not complain about doing burpees. I knew that comment would mean I would end up doing more then I originally planned on doing & I did. Those 50 killed my abs, legs and arms but before I met him there is no way I would have been able to kick those out without feeling like I was going to die. Thank you Daniel for always pushing me, my skinnier body thanks you!
I am trying really hard to not get on the scale, because I feel like every time I do I let me reaction to the number reflected, determine how I feel about the progress I have made. At the end of the day, that number is just a number. It doesn’t define who I am as a person. It also doesn’t determine how my clothes are going to fit. Today, I wore my favorite pair of American Eagle kakis that I have not worn in a long time. Not only did they fit better then they did even when I bought them, but I had to tighten my belt to keep them from falling off. I don’t even care right now what the scale says because I know I am back on track & closer to my goal.
NSV’s For The Week: I am currently wearing a shirt that is … a SMALL ok yes, it is a men’s small, but the fact that I am wearing a small anything is something worth screaming about! I had planned on beating my goal running 15 miles this week, but due to unplanned sickness I wasn’t able to meet or beat my goal, but I am planning on beating it next week!! I did get in 11.6 miles this week! Not to shabby for my first week back into workouts.
Have a fabulous week everyone!
