Michelle Bridges 12WBT, week 3

Week 3 is done. I need a do-over. I did not do as well last week as I should have. Good thing I was granted another day to start over!

Just a reminder this is a paid campaign through Girls Gone Sporty, however all opinions and experiences are my own. I get out of it what I put in!

Exercise was down for medical reasons and then I got into the candy. Don’t even know why, other than it was right in front of me. Why do we do that to ourselves? Then I’m mad at myself for doing it. It’s hard to break a cycle once you get in it. That’s why I love the interaction and support I’m getting from the other Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors during this.

We are our own worse enemy at sabotaging ourselves. I can’t wrap my mind around why it happens. The important thing is to recognize that behavior and stop doing it. One piece of candy isn’t great, but it’s not the worst thing in the world either. It’s when you have it every day or more than once a day. That’s a bad habit. My lifestyle is not restriction. I’ve said it before, it does not work for me. However, sometimes I have to go cold turkey on some things for a few weeks to get back on track. That’s what I’m doing with this program. And it’s working. I’m noticing changes.

Goals I did stick to:

  • No fast food for lunch
  • Water!
  • No soda

Goals for this week:

  • No soda
  • No candy
  • No fast food for lunch
  • Drink my water!

Results: I was down 1/2 a pound on Friday!

There are some good recipes on this plan, my favorite this week was meatballs. Yes, you can have spaghetti and meatballs! And these had hidden veggies in there: zucchini. Didn’t even know it was there and never even told my family. They wouldn’t have minded but it was a good experiment.

I have been trying to pay attention to drinking water to cut down on feeling hungry. That’s a hard one to learn: hungry or thirsty? Michelle Bridges addresses that this week in one of our videos. She has some good tips and a lot of times you are just thirsty.

  • You might just be bored. Try water or a hot cup of tea.
  • Grab that bottle of water and drink it!

This week I’m going to try the “Hearty Beef Pie”, which is close Shepherd’s pie. Apparently in Australia that put smashed peas on top of it. We will not be doing that. We will bake the peas inside.

┬áThis week’s challenge: 100 Burpees. Anyone want to join me?

Break them up into small increments and just get them done. With stitches in my back I’ll be doing them a little modified. Still on doctor’s orders to take it easy. (that is sooo hard to do!)

I’m also still doing the push-up challenge. 100 of those this week anyone?

How did your goals for last week go?

What do you reach for when you feel hungry?

    The meatballs look really good!

  3. Sounds like you are getting a lot out of the program! I like the mashed peas on top. But I’m a huge pea fan…anyway I can have them. Yum!

    I haven’t started on the burpees yet. I guess I should give that a go. :)

Tell me what you think!
