I can't believe I've completed Week 2 of 42 Days to Fit already!
How I did during Week 2:
*I lost 1 pound (Although I wish it was more, I know I'm building muscle)
*I lost another inch around my belly and an inch around my hips
*The strength training was much easier this week, therefore I enjoyed it more
*I ran 5 miles on Saturday! :)
*I had one cheat. And I blame my oldest daughter.
So on Sunday, my married daughter, Cheyenne, came over for our usual Sunday family lunch. She announced that she would making Caramel Frappuccinos for everyone. I knew I would not be having one, and that was fine.
Weeeeeeell, she wasn't having any of that! She walked over to me with a picture-perfect-magazine-worthy Caramel Frappuccino and set it in front of me. Quickly, my other daughter, Celeste, reminded Cheyenne that I could not have one. Cheyenne insisted. I refused! I told her that I had committed to this and I was sticking with it. Well, wouldn't you know....that's when the begging began.
"Pleeeeeeaaaaassssse, Mom! Just try it!"
Being the good mom that I am...and seeing that this could change the whole course of the universe if I did not try it, I had to do my motherly duty and drink my daughter's most perfect Caramel Frappuccino. I'm telling you, she practically twisted my arm! Really!
So here's how I justified my cheat. Since we are now allowed ONE dessert this week, I will fore go my dessert. And honestly, it hasn't been difficult to avoid treats at all. And kidding aside, I wasn't even tempted by the Frapp. It was delicious, but I didn't feel like I needed to have it at all.
Today begins Week 3. I'm looking forward to it because I am already seeing results. My body is slowly changing and I can see it. Hooray!
Are you still with me?
