Time for my week one check in. So far things are moving forward... Slowly. I have had a few ups, and a few downs, but that's life.
First, Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me so far on this seemingly crazy endeavor, I've gotten some great positive comments and encouragement and it really means the world to me. It was fun to learn that a few of you are considering making a go of this Spartan thing as well.
This past weekend I had a chance to win free admittance to a Spartan Race in a raffle at the beef and beer for my daughters competition dance team, but typical to form I didn't win. Not a big deal, but a free entry would've been nice. I do have to say I may be the only person ever to go to a beef and beer and have neither beef nor beer. I did fill up on salad, green beans, potatoes and some pasta.
The diet changes are progressing nicely, I've found some really delicious, cheap and easy food recipes, and when I've had to I was able to make smarter choices for quick on the run meals. Thank you Wawa for adding vegetarian tomato bisque, rice and roasted veggies to the menu.
On the fitness side of things, I tweaked me knee a little the day before I decided to go Spartan, so it's been a little slow but I did get my morning exercises and a run in this week. I'm starting with the burpees today since the pain is all but gone. Another thing I didn't take in to consideration is that I'm now teaching two hours of superhero class on Friday nights now and that alone is a big workout.
Also, I'm gonna be signing up for my first real yoga class soon!
