Days 22-28 #100DaysofRevivingFitness

This week had some ups and it had some downs.  Learning from the downs but focusing on the ups....

DAY 22 started off with another early wakeup. It was a little harder to get myself out of bed this morning, but I did it! I got my sweat on with the Sweat #PiYo workout. I'm really noticing changes in my body internally and externally. I'm still being mindful of what I put in it and making up recipes as I go along . Scott even said "I'm starting to get on board with eating more vegetables. If it tastes this good and it's filling. Yeah, I could do this." Pretty cool! I hope you all have a fabulous day! 
DAY 23 was the Core #PiYo workout. It's always good to work the core. For lunch I had leftovers from dinner last night. A chopped kale salad (chopped with my brand new salad chopper  ) and spaghetti squash topped with an avocado cream sauce--yum! Get the recipe HERE.  I also made some strawberry, lemon, and basil infused water. It's deliciously refreshing. Now I have to figure out how to get my toddler to eat more greens. He won't let anything green touch his lips, and when we find a way to get it in his mouth, it doesn't stay for long. We'll continue to sneak the green stuff in other ways, but if anyone has advice on how to get him to enjoy tasting green healthy foods, I would LOVE it!

DAY 24. I knew today was going to be full so I got up early (yes, on a Saturday) to get my #PiYo Buns workout in. Later in the morning, I logged a few miles walking a trail with a friend--it was great to catch up! This afternoon, I took a nap and then I exercised my green thumb muscle...it's weak, I mean really weak hahaha. Our yard need lots of work! Gotta get that muscle on shape . Looking forward to cooling it by the river for a festival this evening.

DAY 25; a quarter of the way there! I was able to enjoy my rest day by sleeping in (which may still be early for some folks), going to church, and watching football with some friends. I made a buffalo cauliflower bites (recipe HERE) that I think turned out really well. Back to my#PiYo workouts tomorrow.

DAY 26. My doctor told me the medicine I'm on was going to give me some insomnia--he wasn't kidding (I can't wait until I'm OFF of this stuff!) I had a hard time sleeping last night and when I finally did sleep, I didn't want to get up. At. All. Consequently, I missed getting my workout in early. I was SO tempted to just say "forget it, I'm tired, I don't feel like doing it" But I reminded myself of WHY I'm doing it and I got it in during Trey's nap this afternoon. It was my first time doing the #PiYO Drench workout and I STRUGGLED through it. It was really discouraging. But, I'm looking forward to my next encounter with it when I'll dominate it. I'm being consistent with my #shakeologyconsumption and finished a bag this morning--thank goodness for home direct orders. I'm also out of my bedtime tea (which I haven't had for a week or so now). Gotta pick some up later. Here's to #GettingHealthy & a good night of sleep tonight !

 DAY 27. Agh, another rough night of sleep...between the insomnia from the medicine and the fatigue from having low iron levels, I felt a bit worn down today. I didn't wake up early, and when Trey napped, I napped. So, I gave myself a day off from #PiYo. I'll pick it back up tomorrow and will catch up over the next few days. In other news, I've been trying/creating new recipes. Scott was craving something sweet, so I whipped together some vegan chocolate #Shakeology oatmeal & peanut butter cookies. Tonight, I threw together some items I had on hand and made a Chinese-inspired noodle dish...but I used spaghetti squash for the noodles. It turned out to be really tasty! I finally have some bedtime tea! Praying for deep sleep tonight. (Recipes will be posted soon!)

DAY 28 of ‪#‎100DaysofRevivingFitness‬. I slept much better last night (praise God!) and woke up early to get my ‪#‎PiYo‬ strength intervals in this morning. It's sometimes easy for me to get distracted by things that happened yesterday or the day before, but I have to remember to just keep pushing forward. Yesterday's bad choices should have no affect on the healthy choices I make today or tomorrow
