Rough Week

This week started out good, but I'm with you on the not so good rest of the week. Monday night we made a super yummy dinner that was healthy and filling. A while after dinner I started up my Wii Fit. I am not all too familiar with yoga because I had never done it before, so I started with a few stands and it seemed to be going well. Despite our plank challenge, I still hadn't tried to do one yet. It would only let me do it for 30 seconds but I had heard that if you do it so many times it unlocks higher times and challenges. So I kept doing it. 1-2 planks turned into 6-7 planks and then I unlocked the 60 second plank and the challenge plank. I kept doing it over and over and over. My limbs started to get weak but I wasn't sweating or anything. It was late so I decided to stop there and go to bed.
The next morning I go to lift myself out of bed and I can barely move. I laid there. Then laughed. OUCH. That stuff really works. Haha. Today was the first day I wasn't sore in my abs, my back and arms. It felt really good to be sore but it made me not really want to work out so much this week but do a lot of stretching.
Tomorrow is potluck day at work. Wish me luck!
Here is my yummy dinner from Monday. Doesn't look all that great, but it was DELISH!


  1. Looks so yummy. When you gonna feed me some food?

  2. That looks yummy Chelsea.

    Just keep trying, next week can be better than last week. Making changes and implementing good new habits can take a while so don't give up.

    Potluck day at work....small plate, no seconds....You CAN DO IT!

  3. That dinner looks really yummy! With some brown rice and a fruit - DELISH!

  4. That looks so good!! Ever since, well, to be honest, I can't remember who posted about the shrimp being only 6 calories a piece, I've been dying for some!!

  5. Jenn it was Melissa, I think.

    Looks good, and I don't even like shrimp. The raw pic looks totally grody, though. Like big fat worms.

  6. I would eat that meal in a heart beat, Jenn. Looks absolutely delicious.

    I'm amazed you managed to do so many planks and that your body didn't protest earlier. Now your muscles are primed!
