So today is Monday! Time for The Biggest Loser update.
From last Monday I've gone down 1.5 pounds. I'm happy I went down but must say, wish I could lose more in a week. LOL..however, I know some weeks are better than others. I didn't exercise this week as much as I wanted too, mostly due to exhaustion. We had a lot of things going on this week so only had 2 days of workouts. My goal is 4 times of week. Overall I'm keeping positive and motivated. This week will be better. Slow and steady they say is better, but as humans we always want to rush things. lol...
Things I want to work on:
I need more sleep. Sleeping definitely assists when you are trying to lose weight, I need to get in some proper rest. I was getting in bed at a decent time a few days in the pass weeks, but last week wasn't that great. I will work on that this week.
I want to add an extra 10 minutes to my normal workout this week.
Recipe I tried:
I tried a simple recipe I saw online for whole wheat tortilla wraps with Re-fried beans and Avacado. I must say it was delicous. I had 2 medium size for lunch with a side salad. I used Pinto Beans (my favs) but you can use black or red bean (or whatever bean!), mushed them and re-fried them in a tad bit of olive oil. I added lemon to 1/2 of an avacado and a pinch of salt (you can omit, but I need a pinch!). Than I put it together. I warmed up the Tortillas. I really enjoyed them. Maybe you can give them a try.
My two year old (soon to be 3), seems to love when mommy is working out. It's cute how she watches the workout video so intently and tries to do the moves. It's quite hilarious. The other day, I was doing sit-ups and she said she wanted to do some too. She laid down and did a whole set of "2" sit-ups. She got up and said, "mommy I'm tired"...lol...okay sweety....
Looking forward to reading your progress! Until next week. :)
