GL Gets Fit #96 {just 100 more steps}

(Especially important to remember when working with young students!) 20 Motivational Quotes to Start Your WeekHi Loves!  Progress is progress right?!  Last night I wanted to reach my goal of 7000 steps, but I thought, I’ll watch the end of whatever is on tv while I walk.  Then I hit 7700 and I thought hmm… a bit longer and I’ll hit 8000, then 8500, and I finally stopped last night at 9000.  Just a few more steps I kept thinking… and I did it before I knew it.

However, I have to confess.  Sunday evening I had a neck ache.  Thanks to an accident a few years ago and whiplash combined with a lot of computer work leaves me with a neck ache that makes me nauseous.  I can’t really explain it other than I’m just nauseous and physically exhausted.  😦  Its not fun.  So Sunday for the first time in 3 weeks I did not get 7000 steps.  I just could not get myself to walk 20 more minutes or so to cross the mark.  I did get 5631 though.  That was also part of my motivation for hitting over 8000 last night.

I’ve worked the past week on cleaning up my eating.  Granted, I experimented with making my own chicken quesadillas (YUM btw) Saturday and I had Mexican lunch out Sunday afternoon so I wasn’t super strict but still kept some things in check.   I also did a glorious stretching yoga practice.  It wasn’t intense, it was lovely and wonderful.  Since I’ve been focusing on my steps, I thought a more of restorative yoga practice would be nice.

Last week’s stats (May 31- June 6, 2016)

  • I walked 53,668 steps
  • I walked 23.01 miles
  • I LOST 2 POUNDS!!  (finally!!)
  • Did one yoga practice (goal was 2)

This week’s goals (June 7-June 13, 2016)

  • Walk 7000+ steps a day
  • Eat smart
  • Get 2 days of yoga in

This week I’ll also be heading back home to help cook for a celebration that is every year.  I’m hoping I can maintain my weight – its easy to get distracted by delicious foods and I have no self control!  Until next week loves, have a wonderful week. – xo –
