Week 3 of LIIFT4

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there!  I started out my morning with a low-impact dance aerobics workout and then I made myself this awesome breakfast of tofu scramble and avocado toast with a side of fresh strawberries!  Get in my belly!


This afternoon, my daughters and I are going to my favorite winery for a wine glass painting session.  Can’t wait to hang out with my girls and enjoy some wine and girls’ time!

I completed week three of LIIFT4 and it’s going well.  It’s challenging and I often have to do the modified exercises, but I increased my weights this week and I’ve consistently been doing the workouts in the mornings.  Have I mentioned how much I absolutely love Beachbody on Demand?  I feel like I’m at the gym, except there are no crowds, no sharing of other people’s germs, no sitting around and waiting to use a piece of equipment, no infringement of my personal space – all things that I hated about going to the gym.  But I missed the gym workouts so much!  And now I have them back and I feel excited about working out again, which is awesome!

While the workout program went well, the nutritional program could have gone better.  I thought I had my meals planned well, but I found myself going off plan way too many times.  My one cheat day turned into several.  I have planned much better for this next week, so I hope that things go much more smoothly.

How about you?  How was your week?  If you’re a mom, I hope you have some fun plans today with loved ones.

May your glass always be full,

  1. Happy Mother’s Day to you too! That looks like an awesome breakfast! I know what you mean about the germs at gyms. Our daughter, her boyfriend, and our 9 month old granddaughter are living with us and I am forever sanitizing my hands and washing them when I get back from the gym before I hold her. I’ve had a lot of cheat days stringing together too and I am so frustrated. I do great Monday – Friday but as soon as Friday night gets here I cave. Feel like I am going 2 steps forward and 3 back.

    1. Yes, exactly! All of the progress I’ve made during the week is erased during the weekends! It’s not that I can’t enjoy my weekends, I just need to dial it down, you know? Ugh, we’ll get there! We can do this!!


  2. That breakfast looks so dam good! Love the plate used too. I like Beach Body programs too. They really deliver. I’ve done Power 90, Slim in 6, Insanity, T25 & 21 Day Fix. Power 90 worked best. I have several coworkers who use BeachBody on demand & love it. Glad you’re loving it too. We will work out more if we like what we’re doing.
