Not as much as I would have liked, but not a total loss seeing as Pete brought me back Laduree Macaroons from New York. And my approach to handling temptation is to make it go away. Into my tummy. So I ate like 18 macaroons in a day.
I couldn’t help it! They got all smushed in his bag and I didn’t want them to think I was judging them or thought they weren’t pretty enough to eat!
For workouts this week I have been walking with Gracie, doing the Tracy Anderson post-pregnancy video which is NO JOKE PEOPLE! I did half of it on Saturday and couldn’t move for two days. I like that it is only 45 minutes and is sort of divided in three sections, abs first, then legs, then arms so that if I don’t have time to do the whole thing I can do at least the abs first thing in the morning and maybe legs later if Gracie is chillin’ for 10 minutes. You need weights (no bigger than 3 pounds) but other than that you can do it anywhere. It is all mat work mostly using your own body weight and Tracy’s crazy kookie (you were right, Jenny) moves.The things I don’t like about the video are that she is super quiet so sometimes you are mid pike and check the TV and she has moved on without letting you know. And also the music is bizarro. Otherwise I feel like it is really doable and effective.
Diet wise I have basically been doing a paleo diet, at least at night, fish or chicken and veggies. My new favorite thing is roasting a brussel sprout within an inch of its life so that it basically become like a potato chip. I am sure I am cooking all the nutrients out of them, but it is delicious.
I have been trying to keep up with weight watchers online but I don’t super love it. I think it works really well if you are eating prepared foods or cooking their recipes, but trying to log in what I cooked and how I cooked it is super tedious. I am going to look into the other food/exercise logs y’all suggested this week.
Also this week I am going to try some barre classes, Tracy Anderson cardio, and slim in 6. And I need to start limiting my alcohol. FML. But its true. Skinny girl margaritas probably aren’t “skinny” when you consume and entire bottle at a time.
So, how are you guys doing? Any progress? Favorite workouts or foods I should try? Anyone else fall victim to some aggressive macaroons?
