Les Mills Pump Workout: Off Day
Last night was the latest that I have stayed up in a long time. Well, I have stayed up pretty late for the past week or so. I was able to wake up early this morning though; just because my alarms kept going off and I received a phone call. I only have to finish one thing tonight which is writing this entry. After this, I’m calling it a night and I’m going to try to go to bed early.
I lost another pound today! My total is now at 13 pounds lost since August 27th. I tried out the Pumpkin Pie Shakeology recipe last night for dinner and made it again for breakfast this morning. The recipe calls for Chocolate Vegan Shakeology, almond milk, and ice; which I was already doing, and to add 1/2 teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice. It’s not only healthy but it tastes exactly like Pumpkin Pie and it’s great to have during this time of year. The fall and winter brings all of the tempting foods of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. I am sad to say that I enjoyed a bit of the fall treats today. I know I am going to partake in the festivities and some of the foods that come along with it…everyone will. There’s no excuse to over-indulge though. It’s all about moderation and just having a “taste.” This is the season where people gain one or two pounds until New Years. This season, I don’t want to gain any weight. I want to keep losing it and I will lose it. If I stay on track at the pace I am currently at, I predict that I will lose another 24 pounds by the end of the year and making it a total of 37 pounds…at the very least. That means that I will be half-way to my ideal weight.
No workouts or work today meant more rest for my foot. It acted up here and there this afternoon. I bought a self-adhesive wrap the other day and put it on tonight. It felt much better once I put it on. Hopefully I can start my 5K training again tomorrow. Today marks the end of Week 6 of Les Mills Pump. Week 2 brings in a new workout, which is Pump Revolution. It will also begin phasing out Pump and Shred. I’m looking forward to workout to Pump Revolution since it is one of the two longer and tougher workouts of the series. Bring on Monday and time to work even harder this week!
KIA KAHA…BE STRONG!
