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