Thank you for hanging out with me! From day to day you never know what life will throw at you. And it will often be this way in my blog as well :) But lest RUN WILD and LIVE FREE in this amazing adventure together!
Hey friends! So as I mentioned last week I am jumping into my next 8 week full on journey to see where it takes me when it comes to my fitness and health. This week was the first full week using the BURN DFT.
I am loving it. I have amazing appetite control. My cravings for sugary things is way less. And water intake has gone through the roof. This week was a very busy week of dog showing and working and while I am tired, I did not crash! And was able to still enjoy evenings with out being a zombie after the events. This is a HUGE win. For any of my dog show friends I am sure you can relate haha.
I have been drinking almost a gallon of water a day this week. In fact I am WANTING water. And water isn't something I normally crave. I drink it as I know I need to and I drink it cause I no longer let myself drink pop. But I haven't craved it in the past other than after a run. And this week I have been. I have also been eating more veggies and one of my favorite summer time items.....watermelon. The diet side of my experience still is not where I want to see it in the end but I am making different changes each week to make it an end goal. This weeks was to focus more on the veggie and fruit intake along with upping my water intake.
Here are my measurements this week:
And I did loose 5 lbs this week. Now I am not focusing on weight. I fully believe if we are happy with how the mirror portrays us and how our cloths fit I really don't need the scale. The scale is truly only a tool. Honestly an hour after I weigh myself I could be 5 lbs heavier due to water intake etc. It is such a hit or miss thing that is why I am not so focused on it at this time.
My plans for this week include continuing on the BURN DFT of course. But I am also going to get back into doing some lifting at home for weights. My hope is to do this Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Then I have a 10K Race on Saturday. After this race , and at some point on Saturday, I will give you guys another weekly update and let you know my next plan. As I am going to change a few things up with my running and goals there. Nothing drastic. So this week I also hope to keep up the water intake, good fruits/veggies but also add in more lean protein items like eggs, chicken breast and Fish. Do some more actual cooking (which by the way I hate to do).
Thank you for allowing me to share. If anyone has great, easy, and fast clean eating recipes I would love to hear them. Please share with me and comment below. Here is my video from today as well with my update along with more information on BURN.
I would like to even start an email update list. Please subscribe to the blog or reach out to me if you would like to be part of that. Happy Saturday all! Lets rock another week.
