This is my current motto. I really needed discipline yesterday. I went with some new friends to Silver Falls State Park yesterday to hike their trails. I just did this last November with my girls, so I had some idea of what I was doing. However, there were two things I didn’t realize:
- I am more out of shape than the last time I went.
- We hoofed it. Like it took half the time to finish the almost 9 mile loop than it did 7 months ago.
So, needless to say, I was so tired. There were so many times that I just wanted to give up and wait for the helicopter to come pick me up, but (1) I didn’t want to pay the bill for that, and (2) I didn’t want to embarrass myself too much in front of these people that I just met, I kept going. I finished it. After doing a 5k the day before (admittedly, I did walk most of it), I was pretty much done in for the rest of the day. And my body is sure reacting to it now. I’m actually not as sore as I thought I would be, but I did gain a few pounds in the last 24 hours. Since my next “official” weigh-in isn’t for a couple weeks, I’m not worried about it. I knew that could happen, so I was prepared (although still a tad disappointed).
Today is the start of the newest Mamavation 2 week challenge, so my body torture will be continuing, and I hope to see some good results at the end.
I’ll talk more about Cinch in my next post, but I do want to mention that I am still working with the program. I of course have my favorite products, and my not-so-favorite products, but overall it’s an awesome program, and I’m still working on getting into the groove (didn’t help that the entire first week I was on vacation)
Have a great week, everyone. Make sure you’re drinking your water!
