Last week was one of the best I have had in a while. It seems like everything is falling into place.
Lots of Non – Scale victories to share!
1st – My pants are bigger! I have to keep pulling my pants up ! Silly , but it is so cool. I swear its because of my Plexus Tri-plex . A big thing with Plexus is a healthy gut. I have been taking the probiotic and biocleanse, as well as my Plexus slim pink drink. I think its a combo of that and the fact that I am just not as hungry anymore. I am not ravenous. Which leads me to my 2nd victory…
2nd – I always finish my food – get every last bite – go in for seconds – always finish that last bite of my burrito. Not anymore, I just can’t . I have NO DESIRE to continue the face stuffing. AND ITS FREAKING AWESOME!!! I had trouble finishing chicken fingers and french fries this week. Now, granted not the most healthy meal, but I have ordered a side of french fries before on top of the fries that come with the food. And I couldn’t even finish it!
3rd – I resisted a full piece of cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. Yes, I can’t believe it either. I usually get a full piece for myself . This time, I shared with my daughter and even then could not eat half. THIS IS GINORMOUS FOR ME.
4th – I got into a pair of jeans I have not been able to get into for months. And it didn’t require acrobatics to zip them up ! This my friends was such a great feeling.
I also got back into the gym this week! Took it easy but I got in there and moved the best I could!
It was Weightlifting Wednesday. We started with dead lifts. 3-3-3-3-3. I warmed up with 85 lbs. I so badly want to beat my 215 lb dead lift, but I have to work back up to it, its gonna be a while. 😦
I started with 85lb as my warm up , then did 105 lb, 135 lb, 145 lb, 150 lb, 155 lb was my final. Still have such a ways to go. But I love them dead lifts, so I will keep at it!
Next up was supposed to be goblet squats, but given my knee situation, I did bench squats instead as part of the accessory work. I gotta say, the bending didn’t bother me nearly as bad as I thought it was going to . It was getting up off the ground that was the struggle.
Here is the accessory work :
5×8 bench squats
20 band walk – left and right
10 reverse lateral raises
30 sec dead bug hold
10 skull crushers
Like I said, the hardest part was getting up off the ground after the dead bug and the skull crushers.
Looking forward to what the next week will bring!
Any non – scale victories to share? I’d love to hear about them!
