Oh my! The struggle bus was real last week. Honestly, I don't even remember most of it.
Somehow my days became nights and last week has blended into this week. Its crazy. How does that even happen?
Thankful for having a set workout schedule and having set up my meal plan in advance. What would I do without that!
For the third week, to be super honest, I didn't reinvent the wheel when it came to foods. I took some of my favs from last week, and switched it up with some of my favs from week 1 and boom... there was my meal plan! I didn't have much time to think!
Enough with all that whining. Here are some of the things I really enjoyed this week:
Repetition - Every time you do a new workout DVD, you get to do it twice! And that really helps because the second day, you come out of it even sweatier.
New workout every week - This week it was "Trail Ride." My favorite part of it was the warm up. It felt a lot sexier than the others. "The Lean" was my favorite move! The amount of jumping has definitely increased but luckily the modifier stays up front! For us low-impact peeps!
I replaced one workout with CIZE: I told you I was on the struggle bus so I decided to take a day off of Country Heat and go back to one of my fav programs. It was EXACTLY what I needed. I did a routine I hadn't done before from the Beachbody On Demand Next Level bonus routines, and that was a blast. (fun fact: I am a cast member in two of those routines!)

Some things I am not so proud of:
I added some extra sweets here and there! At the end of the week, I had ice cream and a snow cone at the beach. Also on Saturday at the beach, I did not follow the meal plan I had laid out for myself but we did bring healthy options to the beach like mozzarella, tomato, pesto sandwiches, lots of fruits, and chickpea salad.
Same goes for Friday. I had my appointment with my midwife, and instead of coming back home and eating my food after the appointment, I took my husband out to Mexican food! And I had enchiladas (whoops!)
Oh well, we can't be perfect EVERYDAY! 80/20 RULE
Speaking of Meal Plan, this was what I had laid out for myself:
