Has it been 6 weeks already? I can’t even believe it!! I’m thankful to say that I am 100% back on track, feeling healthy, alive and ready to kick some butt (namely my own)!
Week 6 started off as quite a challenge. It truly is amazing how much momentum you can lose in only 1 week away from the gym. My first workout of the week was rough, my heart was pumping hard the entire workout, I honestly barely made it through the full hour. It was a good lesson to have learned however: when you’re exercising to change your body and increase your strength.. a break is 24 hrs.. not a week!! Granted I had no choice in this situation, at some point I will have a choice, and I will not be choosing to take a break!
At the end of the week I had completed 4 x 1 hour long workouts! My heart and muscles have returned to their former glory:
Squats completed this week: 225
Squats completed to date: 750
Squats remaining: 9,250
I’ve also got an AWESOME progress update to share with everyone: I have officially lost 6 INCHES!!!! 2 inches from my waist, 2 inches from my ribcage area.., and 1 inch from each arm! I am super excited! I have one more week coming up in the “foundation” stage at which point I promise to post a progress pic..
Also, stay tuned this week I will be posting a new recipe: Gnocchi Chicken Minestrone
Hope you all had a fabulous week as well! P.S. let me know if you have any awesome healthy recipes that I can try!! I’d love to feature them on my blog 🙂
