#RuralWellnessChallenge Week 4

Hi! End of Week 4. I feel good! I was looking at pictures of exactly two years ago when Wace was 8 months old, and I think I look healthier now than I did then, so that’s nice to know.

Best Day: Thursday! Yesterday would have been, but I didn’t MommaStrong.
Worst Day: Monday, again! Weird.
Proud that: I exercised even when I really, really didn’t want to, and went on long walks both today and yesterday.
Not proud that: I moped around on Monday and hardly moved at all for no good reason.
Next week’s goal: to exercise and not eat all of Wacey’s Halloween candy.

The best part of this challenge is showing me what’s working and what’s not, and I’m excited to continue in November!

#RuralWellnessChallenge Week 3

Hi! End of Week 3. I’m starting to notice the effects of exercising regularly–I don’t have to stop going up the hills when I’m pushing the boys in the stroller, I can lunge for.ev.er, and holding planks is no longer an issue.

Best Day: Friday, for once!
Worst Day: Monday. Exercise didn’t really happen.
Proud that: I finished the week like, real strong, and I did five MommaStrong workouts!
Not proud that: I didn’t get as many active minutes as I should have.
Next week’s goal: 5/5 days for MS, more fruits and veggies.

The best part of this challenge is showing me what’s working and what’s not, and I’m excited to make some big changes in November!

#RuralWellnessChallenge Week 2

Hiiiii! End of Week 2. I feel pretty good about this week. I’m starting to feel stronger, and a little bit sore, which is great. My pants aren’t fitting any better yet, but I think a lot of that has to do with my diet (and only being committed for two weeks, ha), so I need to lock that down. Today I did my big grocery trip, and it felt so good  to fill up our the cart with lots of protein, cheese, whole wheat bread, veggies, and fruit. Our produce situation was pretty bad last week since I was late getting to the store, so now I just want to eat, like, Honeycrisp apples and cucumber.

Best Day: Wednesday, with over 12,000 steps, 55 active minutes, and 39 floors.
Worst Day: Yesterday–we had some #adulting to do so I didn’t get a workout in.
Proud that: I finished the week much stronger than I have in a long time.
Not proud that: I only got 4/5 days on D15 again. Apparently that’s my weak spot, so I think I need to shoot for Sun-Thurs instead of Mon-Fri since by the end of the week I’m over it.
Next week’s goal: 5/5 days for D15 and more fruits and vegetables.

I’m starting to get a little more enthusiastic about my heath and wellness, and I think being accountable has a lot to do with it!
