In my August 29th post, I had stated what my goals were to get my health and fitness back on track.
- Eat clean everyday!
- Complete every workout in Focus T25 (I start on September 2)
- Run 10 miles a week.
- Spend more quality time with my family.
- Prepare lunches and clothing for the kids the night before.

It wasn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be. I knew I shouldn't bother trying to make too big of changes over the long weekend, especially because we were away from home. It took me a good week after that to get my "diet" (I hate that word) back on track. My head is back in the game and I'm feeling so much better already!
Exercise wise, it's been a lot harder...I completely Week 1 of Focus T25 and absolutely hated every single one of the 25 minute work outs. I'm trying to tell myself that the more I do it, the more I"ll enjoy it. Especially because of the success that Randa has had with it! I do find that I enjoy the "kickboxing/martial arts" type moves significantly more so I did order a video to teach me more of that! This week (week 2) has not been going so well. On Sunday, our entire family ran in the Drumheller Dinosaur 5Km race (I hope to post about this by the end of the week) and then hiked the valley's around Drumheller. That's pretty much been my only exercise this week.
On Monday, I decided to attend a lunch hour Yoga class. I've never Yoga'd before so this was a pretty big step for me to do....alone. I loved it! I called on Monday afternoon and signed up for the session. So now I am a Yogi on Mondays and Wednesdays during my lunch hour until mid-December.
Where I'm at with my goals right now:
1. Killing it!
2. Not killing it.
3.There just isn't enough time....yet!
4. Dinosaur Run, hello?!?!?
5. I deserve an Awesome Mom medal!!
From what I have accomplished of my goals these past couple of weeks has helped me drop my weight a few pounds and has made putting on jeans a little less scary.
Here's a picture of our boys after the DinoRun:
I think they look a wee bit proud of their accomplishment!
