30 Days to Healthy Challenge

Happy Monday Everyone! I know Mondays can be tough but I hope we are all having a good one anyways. I am quickly approaching 4 months since I had my little one and I have to admit I have not stayed on track with my health and fitness as well as I did when I was pregnant. I decided today was the day I make a change. For the next 30 days I will:

  • fit in activity every day.
  • try my best to eat well.
  • I will not beat myself up if over indulge.
  • have one treat a day
  • hold myself accountable everyday by using my fitness pal daily.

I will workout in some manner everyday. This includes the daily walks I already take with the baby. I am walking daily once in the late morning and once in the late afternoon. Five days a week I will add some conditioning exercises either at home or the gym.

Today I went for a 20 minute walk and did groceries with the baby. In the afternoon I did:

  • 15 sit ups
  • 10 crunches
  • 5 push ups
  • 8 mountain climbers
  • 15 squats

This may seem like a small workout but I had to start somewhere. I will be adding more exercises daily and increasing reps along the way.

This is what todays food journal looks like:

Breakfast: Cantaloupe, Coffee with Soy Milk and a Vanilla Almond Kind Bar

Lunch: Raspberry Pecan Chicken Salad

Snack: Soy Cinnamon Dolce Latte from Starbucks

Dinner: Pork Chops with Asparagus, Mixed Greens Salad and a Glass of Red Wine

Treat: Split a Cupcake with Jon 🙂

Not the best food day but certainly not the worst either! I wish I could have skipped the wine but after the day I have had I definitely need it.

Previous to having the baby I really thought that it would be super easy. I actually thought it would not affect my gym time and what I eat. Boy was I wrong! Everything has changed and it is time for me to adapt to that change. So I will try to post on how I am doing for the next 30 days as a way to keep myself on track and maybe inspire a few other Moms out there to join me! Who is with me?
