Well week four rolled around before you know it.
I can actually move better. I feel a little stronger. I'm starting to crave healthy foods and accept healthy habits like portion control and cutting out most refined carbs and candy.
I also am trying to drink a gallon of water every day. I thought it was crazy when my friend mentioned it but I also noticed two of my friends who are fitness competitors do it and talked about how good they felt. I don't know if its just wanting it to be true but I actually feel less tired and achy since I started. I have yet to drink an entire gallon mostly only 3/4 of the way through but its enough to feel a difference.
One thing that I love is that my son Conor wants to go workout with me. And Ms. Stephanie doesn't mind she likes him.
|It just looks easy|
Of course he's fascinated with the machines and has to try them out. His comment after this one was "Dang it just looks easy..."
|Conor attacking me after the Planking...|
Now I can do some crunches. Believe it or not I am the crunch Queen. So I decided I'd stretch those crunches out as looooong as I could.
Me: Hey Conor are you OK?
Conor: Yep Yep but this is hard.
Me: ( on crunch 25) Are you tired yet?
Conor: Yep I'm tired Mom just hurry up.
Me: Oh no this feels so great I'm going to do I don't know 25 more.
Conor: Mom, Mom, MOM!!!!!
I loved getting to spend the time with him doing something good for us, that helps to make us healthy better people. And having a teen its hard to find something that doesn't bore him.
Bonding over healthy stuff with your kid.
Yep its my new normal.
P.S. I fit back into a pair of jeans I have not been able to wear for a couple of months. WOOHOO!
