Freedom within Boundaries09/14/2010
I have the Mighty Mo going for me right now. Everything is moving along at a good pace. I have been logging my food, planning my days well and exercising. It feels so great to be in control. I’m making great decisions and have tons of pride. I think it even rubs off on my teaching. The kids and I had such a great day.
I finished my back to back workouts with Angie. We focussed on legs and abs. I don’t have a another workout with her until next Monday so I need to keep within the boundary. I’m going to massively prep meals for the week over the weekend. I need quick and easy recipes. I’m looking to try to get away from my Eat Right Meals. I want fresh food that are high impact grains, protein, veggies and fruits. We’re going FRESH. I’m even sending a photo of my prep cooking to Angie for accountability.
The workout today was unbelievable. I did 8 dumbbell squats with a 30 lbs weight. That’s even after doing 12-10’s of 20 and 25 lbs respectfully. I never thought that I would ever get past 15 lbs. Crazy!!! I even had a great time showing some friends the squat moves that Angie had taught me. I LOVE IT! Then we headed over to do a simple step up and after 20 years of compensating for my knee I really had to talk to my head and tell it to let my body take the step. I knew I could do it but my mind was saying to be careful. It’ll come in time. Anything I do right now if I can’t do it I’ll say “YET!” “I can’t do it YET!” but soon.
