Food was meh. Not bad but certainly not good. I need to balance myself more so I have started snacking. This is really to make sure that I am not a ravenous animal when I get home after work. I have a vlog series upcoming on healthy snacks since I am still learning how to snack properly so make sure you stop by the youtube channel and subscribe!
I had such a low energy week this week. Maybe its the heat, or an upcoming friend visit, but good googamooga my natural energy resources were completely depleted! I managed to workout this week but what you don’t see is the incredible amount of determination it took to get myself there! I had a million excuses not to go, but my number one excuse to go kind of outranked them all:
Sometimes I have days where I don’t feel like going to the gym, it happens to the best of us right? However, I felt this way the entire week! It’s weird, not like myself, and I hope it ends soon!
- Read inspirational posts
- leave the scale alone
- drink more than usual water
- trade giggles with this guy
On a happy note, Zumba returns this week and I have choreographed 5 new songs so I am raring to go!
