These two weeks were definitely the best I've had since I started this challenge. My first week I had everything mapped out and was doing really well. Every day I got up, got my workout done, and was ready to tackle the rest of the day with all of my enthusiasm. I was going so non-stop, though, that towards the last half of the second week I ran out of steam. I might have a balance issue, haha.
I've also discovered that when I have big projects to complete, like cleaning my house or finishing a commission, I tend to put working out on a back burner. I don't know if that's okay, because projects should take priority, or if it would help me focus if I started the day with the shot of endorphins and clarity that a workout gives me. I guess I won't know until I've tried both!
I think in one of these posts I said I would continue this challenge for 6 weeks, but I'm going to extend that number to 8. That's right before my vacation, so I think I'll take a break while I'm on vacation, then I'll get back into it. I'd like to keep doing this for up to 12 weeks, so we will see how that goes!
As far as food goes, week five was also a five star week. I watched what I was eating, but maybe a little too much! I need to get better at pacing myself and eating enough calories, which is a very weird/new thing for me.
I also tried out this recipe for Baked Spinach and Eggs from Manila Spoon, with adjustments for what I had in my fridge (egg whites and Munster cheese). It was so yummy... definitely something I'd suggest trying.
