Help Mama Get Fit: Workout week update

Last week’s workout goals were a success!  I went to the fitness center 3 days and accomplished a 30 minute workout each day.  It was straight to the point with no time to play.

This week will be a little different because of the holiday.  More than likely I’ll have to go 2 days in a row due to the fitness center being closed on Monday.

That was my workout week. Quick and to the point. Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day!

Marriage & The Family:No Mommy Guilt, Sleeping Beauty

IT’S MONDAY, MOMMIES!!!!  I felt no guilt waking up this beauty.  As a matter of fact I wish I had a bull horn.  Not really.

I’m really good with making sure I wake the kids up pleasantly.  Unless, they wanna take me there and believe me… I can go there. ;-/

I learned with my oldest that if I woke her up…

“Morning, beautiful.”  She’d wake up on the right side of the bed.  If I came in the room with aggression…. the wrong side of the bed it was.

Of course there are exceptions.  Someone has to try me **cough middle child cough** However, to my pleasant surprise, he’s beating me hitting the floor in the morning.  I’m sure a new school (Junior High) and riding the school bus has a lot to do with it.

Update on my workout

I got up and out this morning to do my 30 minute workout.  It was awesome and I felt as though I accomplished more because I had no time to lose.  Got in 15 minutes of cardio and the last 15 was arm workout.  Liz from A Nut In A Nutshell, commented on my post yesterday and said that 30 minutes was do-able.  It really helped me see 30 minutes in a new light.  Before I started going to the fitness center I would workout 30 minutes at home. 

For some strange reason getting it over with early in the morning works better for me. Otherwise, nothing will happen. Absolutely nothing.  I’ve tried working out after dropping my son off at school and it would feel like a chore. Wish I was good at mixing it up a bit.

Back to waking kids up. What was the best way to get your kids up in the morning? Was there a different way you had to approach each child?

Back to my Workout Routine

This week I’ll be back at my workout routine. Up and at it, but I may only get to fit in 30 minute workouts.  I’ll see how that goes with making sure I get the kids a good breakfast and off to school. 

It’s so funny because my son has made it known that he wants bacon for breakfast. 

Wednesday: turkey bacon, eggs & waffles

Thursday: turkey bacon and eggs

Friday: oatmeal

Son: (on Friday) WHERE’S THE BACON?!  You’re going down by the day!

The nerve of him! LOL So, you see the urgency of making sure certain people get a good breakfast in the morning. LOL

Let’s see how I’m able to work this out punintendid.  Do you have any must haves that you want or enjoy doing before the kids get off to school?  How do you make time for it?

My hardcore rap playlist motivates my workout

Don’t judge me 😉 The past few weeks of my workout having been boring and dreaded.  I go to our neighborhood fitness center, which I LOVE and I often get caught up chatting with some other ladies about recipes and grocery stores.  Go figure.   However,  I find myself looking at the time on the elliptical constantly.

Unless I’m listening to my hardcore rap playlist on 10.  That’s when I’m in the rhythm and I flow straight through my workout in no time at all.  That’s the way it feels to me anyway.  

I also weighed in this morning… I was scared that I may have gained 5 lbs.  I’m not a heavy eater, but a heavy snacker. Heavy! I tell you! Heavy!   That also depends on the time of month it is.  To my surprise I was still at 190 🙂 Whew!

So, the moral of the story is…. listen to hardcore rap while working out and stop talking about recipes and grocery stores 😉

Help Mama Get Fit: Revisit My Fitness Goals & Regroup

I’m in need of some kick the last 10 pounds motivation.  I’ll start the week off motivated and by the end of the week I’m comfortable and in my usually routine at the fitness center.  It may be time for me to revisit my fitness goals and regroup.

Another thing, although I’ve lost 14 pounds, there are those areas that need some isolated attention.  Arms, thighs, butt and that stomach that was destroyed by all 3 of my kids! GRRRR I should have did a Beyoncé and let another woman carry my babies.  Did I say that out loud? LOL 😉 j/k

Have you ever had a hard time losing the last few pounds to reach your weight loss goal and if so, how did you overcome it?
