This week I have been watching some free videos by Jennifer McCay at LeanGreenYOU. I would love to learn more about which foods really are not all that healthy, even though they are considered health foods. She had mentioned these, and going to more whole foods. I would love to learn some recipes and will be checking out Alysa Bajenaru, RD @InspiredRD tonight on the Mamavation show to hopefully get some more ideas and recipes so that I will enjoy these foods more.
The other thing I want to focus more on is eliminating my trigger foods. From watching Jennifer McCay's free video on food cravings she has given me ideas on eliminating these cravings. So this week is fairly quiet so I am going to try very very hard to cut out these triggers, and hopefully by the end of the week will not have the cravings I have been dealing with.
I mentioned in my title that I have set a new goal. While I was pregnant I had set a goal to lose 25 pounds by July 4th....but yeah I have actually gone the other way. I have given in to cravings so much the last month that I have gained weight. So I am getting some help with my nutrition by reading more through Mamavation, and I am going to be starting a six week program with Jennifer McCay later this week. I have thought about it more and am going to quit beating myself up for not losing weight. I have set a new goal to lose weight by Labor day. I am partnering up with my good friend and neighbor and we are going to get up early and go for walks before the kids are up. We figured we dont have the motivation to do it by ourselves so we are going to do it together! On top of that I am going back to working out using my Wii. I lost so much using my Wii and it was fun. I have many exergames to use, and now I just got to dust off that balance board and get moving. I have set a challenge to do the Wii fit 10 minute hula hoop every day. I figure no matter what this is just a quick 15 minutes of my day. Plus this is on my list of alternatives for when I have food cravings. So I might just get it in more than once a day.
While I like how the Firm Express dvds made me sweat, some of the moves have me tripping over my feet right now. I need to get back to working out more and then I think I can handle them more. I found a couple of the workouts I would be doing some side steps during parts because the moves were too fast for me. I dont mind speed, but they would be quick and would change directions too much. These I think are great workouts for people that can keep up more and are good about following directions quickly. So I am off to get thinner and quicker, then will add them in again.
So my goal this week:
- 10 minute Wii fit hula hoop every day.
- Walk at least 5 days this week(at least one hour), even if I have to do it with the Wii or dvd depending on the weather.
- Do some strength training workouts using the Wii.
- Cut out my trigger foods like soda and chips.
- Try to eat more whole foods by finding recipes that include them more.
