I am back!
Back to work that is...
Being back to work means my life is going to be more structured. There is something about work that keeps me in check with my eating, my water intake, my gym sessions, and my blogging. I always slack on these things when I am at home on the weekends or for holidays.
This morning I set my alarm for 4:30 am and headed to the gym for my morning workout. For those of you who do not know, I am currently doing the Kelsey Byers Skinny Jeans Challenge. It started August 31st, but I started it on August 19th. It is a 12 week challenge that includes workout plans and meal plans. You take before and after photos and write a essay and send it to Kelsey by December 1st for a chance to win some awesome prizes. I am in it to win it!!! You know I mean business when I start logging my food... yep, I started logging my food. I hate logging my food.
I will be hitting up the gym Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 5 am. Thursday and Friday I will be getting my swole on with the husband at lunch time (those are his days off). Saturday we will go between 8-1pm (when childcare is open). Sunday we will rest!
Stay tuned because once I finish my 1st 4 weeks, I am going to post a blog with pictures, measurements and weight loss. Along with my meal plans and just some random thoughts I have about the program. Week 4 starts tomorrow and will end the 16th... so make sure to check back then!
On another note... being back to work has been okay so far. I will admit I have cried twice this morning. Once on the way home from the gym and once on the way into work. I am trying to just remember that I am only working part time and Dax is at home with his Daddy... that seems to be helping out with the tears. Another plus to working part time is that I am still able to take Caleb to school each morning and pick him up every afternoon... he will never even notice I am working, other than the fact that I will be wearing business casual clothes to drop him off at school instead of wearing my workout clothes!!!
Here are a couple of pictures helping me get through the day... Sweet boys oh how I love thee!!!
