Well, the third week of the month did not go as planned. It seems that the third week is always my failing point. The only difference is that this time I won’t let it get me down and lose more precious time because of it.
I lost some motivation and was under a lot of stress having to be on guard during the strikes in our area and the stress hit me harder than I though it would. I thought that I would be able to go as normal after it was over but all my body craved was rest and relaxation, so I gave in to it (which probably was the right thing – your body usually knows when it needs it). But, like a good girl, I put my big girl panties on and woke up at crazy-o’clock again this morning and started my week off right!
I luckily did not gain any weight in the midst of everything throwing me off my game last week, I did stagnate though. This only means that I will be working twice as hard this week, and I am sooo ready for it!
I have also decided to make it my mission for a full month streak in June. I am going to overcome all obstacles and beat next month! I am going to conquer each and very week, including the third!
I have incorporated resistance band training into my routine. Although it is only an extra at this point and so if I can’t make it through an entire circuit in the morning I will be doing it in the evenings. I have come to enjoy it quite a bit. I feel it pushes me harder than my usual routine and really gets my muscles going!
I also restarted my 30 Day Plank Challenge from day 1 today. I a, finding it easy to catch up on the 30 Day Burpee Challenge, so I am carrying on from where I left off with a twice a day effort to catch up, however I don’t believe that will work effectively with the plank challenge. So, I have decided to start from day 1 again and will keep pushing until I finish the damn challenge. I refuse to give up. I hope that you who are doing these challenges feel the same, but I also hope that you are kicking ass at it!
I hope that you all have a great week stuffed with clean eating and awesome work outs!
