I didn't do a post last week. I was sick with strep throat, which totally sucks.
No weight loss this past week, but progress was made. I gave up soda!! Leah made a comment on Mamavation TV last week about soda being the devil. I don't know why but that really stuck with me and two days later I just stopped. It hasn't been easy but after the first couple of days there was no way I was going back no matter how bad I was craving it.
I got my vitamix blender, and I love it. I've been drinking green smoothies this week, and I've enjoyed playing with the different fruits and greens to see which ones I like the best. I plan to try some healthy soups and a green ice cream. I've also decided to start trying fruits and veggies that I've never tried. I bought a couple persimmons this past week. I found them quite sweet and tasty.
Goals this week:
Green smoothie for both breakfast and lunch with a healthy snack in the afternoon, healthy dinner, and then healthy snack sometime after dinner. Because I work 4 nights a week until 12:30 am and don't get in bed until about 2:30am I have to incorporate that last snack. I just don't want to eat any closer than 2 hours before bed.
The exercise thing is harder. There are no excuses the three days I don't work but the days I work are harder. I'll try to get it in first thing. We have plenty of stairs at work that I can put to use when I'm not too busy. There's no reason not to get in exercise.
I need to get more serious this week. It's been such a tough year that I think I don't go all-in because I have this fear of failure. I need to get over it and do what I need to do. I mean, if I can quit soda I can do anything, right?

Our question of the week is:
Have you ever been injured starting a new exercise routine? Tell us about it…If not, do you get any aches and pains? Where?
I've never actually been injured but there was an occasion when I got a little too ambitious with the lunges. Sitting down for about three day was quite an event.
Have a great week, everyone!
