I warned you...
First, I did do my kettlebell and other workout yesterday. Kettlebells are freakin' hard. I used an 18 lb one. Holy crap. I have this 6 minute workout thing we did and then a little 1 minute exercise with them at the end. So 7 minutes with the kettlebells. Doesn't sound like much but man..it was hard. I hope to build up with them.
Push Ups: 23 (Girl push ups - +7 from last effort)
Sit Ups: 11 (+4) from last effort.
Good progress on this front.
So Hubby is working on editing videos we took when the girls were smaller to clear up space on the camera. Side note: We have all these videos of when Maddie was little and Lori was REAL little but no recent ones. I don't know what it is about the second child but they really get the shaft when it comes to the memory makers, huh? So anyway, we were watching some of them over the weekend and I was just blown away by how fat I was. It was really shocking to me. I knew I was big. I mean I felt big when the videos were taken but I know I didn't feel THAT big. I've seen before pics (and have posted them here) but I guess there's just something about moving fat that just makes it seem even worse. What's even sadder is that I didn't even want to watch the videos because I hated seeing myself in them. Precious memories of my girls that I don't even really want to watch because of my own issues.
I don't want to let my husband record anything else because I'm afraid that when I look at it, I'm going to be just as disappointed with how I look now. I feel like I've made such great progress and I don't even mind seeing myself in pictures anymore but I just don't know about this. I'll get over it and I know we'll take more videos but it was a real eye opener as to how bad it really got a few years ago. I know we'll be taking video this summer of the girls in the pool and I really don't want to be hiding from the camera this time. If anything, it got me remotivated.
And motivated I am...let's check in on some of the other things.
No soda: Check
No fast food: Check
Calories: I would've gone over yesterday if not for the exercise, so still need to work on this one.
I'm doing my run today after I pick up the girls from school. One nice thing about having hubby home right now is getting some help in the afternoons so I can go work out and not have to try to get motivated to do it at 8:00 at night.
Hope y'all are having a good Tuesday...the week is officially in full swing. Here's hoping it's a good one!
