Thanksgiving Gorge + Injuries = Worse week YET!

BUT I only missed one workout due to injuries and I dug deeper and saw progress none-the-less. I have OVER 10,000 calories burned to date on the program and that has to be good for my body. I can't wait to start really SEEING results and after the recovery week I think that I will take pics to see if changes are happening that I can't recognize in the mirror yet.

This week's game plan is not to miss a workout, push harder and dig deeper. I want my calorie count back in the 3500+ for the week and when you start off the week with Pure cardio it feels like it is achievable.

Diet related issues this week: Thanksgiving is not good for the diet. I tried to behave BUT it is my Mother's cooking that did me in. When I wasn't eating turkey we ate way too late! I turned down dessert last night and stayed busy cleaning up so that no one gave me a hard time about it... and it worked. I did see someone this weekend that I have not seen in a while and they were asking me all kinds of questions about what kind of a diet I was on and how much weight that I have lost... I guess it is noticable :D I proudly tell everyone it is through HARD work... no amount of dieting alone can get good, lasting results.

Oh, and I treated myself on Monday morning with a breakfast recipe that I found online.. it was scrumptious and when I find the author I will give her credit and like her blog here.

SO, here are the stats from last night's workout:

Pure cardio:

Calories: 471
Fat Burn: 30:37
Fitness: 29:31
Average 121
Maximum: 170

Had some trouble last night with my DVD freezing... I wonder if it has something to do about getting my set on Kijiji? I was SO mad and it affected my average HR for sure!

Tonight is Power and Resistance... c'mon, LET'S GOOOOOOOO!

Oh, and my Mom started today :D She is going to be doing it too... and my other friend should be getting her set this week too so I will have other Insanity addicts to chat with. Gotta love that!

Make it a great day!

Holidays don't count as far as diets go in my opinion... You need to have some fun with food and eat some yummy stuff!!! I can't wait for Thanksgiving.. love turkey... and mashed potatoes... and pie... and well... all of it really. :)

Great job on getting your mom and friend into it too. My niece has some of mine right now and I just found out my brother-in-law has started too... Who knew we were so dang inspirational! Hahahahaha.
