Good first day…

Back from 12 days in Ontario and so far so good 🙂

Vacation highlights:

  • 2 days in Niagara Falls – celebrated Canada Day at Niagara Falls and watched the awesome fireworks display.  Did a lot of walking around while we were there.
  • 2 days in Toronto – more walking down Queen Street and around the Eaton Centre
  • 8 days in Port Elgin – beautiful resort on Lake Huron.  A week spent with 100 other families from across Canada, learning about Social Justice issues around the world, Health & Safety standards, and Unions (the history, their role, vision, etc).  The kids had an amazing time, participating in camp activities and making new friends.

Surprisingly I did make it to the gym a couple times while in Port Elgin, the gym consisted of 90% weight machines, so I couldn’t do any olympic lifts or squats/deadlifts, etc.  Although all food was included and there were desserts available at every meal, I actually only had dessert twice.  And not even full dessert, just small pieces.  So I’m quiet proud of that.  I did indulge in a daily latte (sometimes twice a day!)  So delicious!!  All in all I don’t think this vacation threw me off track.  Truth is, even before the vacation, I was really struggling with eating healthier.

I also received my Beach Body PiYo Challenge pack, which includes the workout DVDs and a month supply of Shakeology.  Made a shake today with a 1/2 banana and it was okay, a little grittier than the protein I usually drink but nothing I can’t get used to.  I also watched the intro DVD to get familiar with the moves.  First actual workout is tomorrow, I can’t wait!  I’m really hoping this program will help me with my flexibility/mobility.

I also took my “before” pictures and they didn’t look pretty.  But that’s okay.  A part of me didn’t even want to take the pictures, but I knew that I needed to have a picture to compare my progress against.

Today’s eats were pretty good.  Shakeology shake in the morning with my one-pump white mocha americano from Starbucks.  Quinoa, roasted zucchini and a couple shake n bake drumsticks, spinach salad with grapes and pumpkin seeds, then for dinner, quinoa with a couple eggs and turkey bacon.  I also munched on some popcorn and that’s about it!  Didn’t give into the dark chocolate craving or any other cravings 🙂

Really hoping I can stay motivated and focused.

    I’ve seen this PiYo mentioned on other blogs but not really sure what it is. Looking forward to following along as you get into the program.
