RevAbs week #7 update

posted in fitness, health, RevAbs on by

Here is my week #7 update of RevAbs by Brett Hoebel & BeachBody.

So this week didn’t slow down for me any. It was Lee’s last week of school, lots of extra event with that. We have a house guest living with us for awhile and that makes life a bit more busy. And we’re getting ready for a trip. Oh and of course we had family & friends over for Canada day. WOW. BUT I do want to say that I worked out all 6 days this week. It was tough and energy levels are very very low right now but I knew I’d feel down on myself if I didn’t workout.
My least favorite workout right now is the hour long Strength & Endurance and Merciless Abs days. By the time I get to Merciless Abs I have no energy left. One day this week I couldn’t even move anymore. It’s really discouraging to me. I’m watching what I eat and making sure I fuel my body properly but I still feel tired on the days of this workout. I guess it doesn’t help it’s sooooo hot out right now either.

Eating wise was almost a perfect week for me. Even at the family BBQ I did well, avoiding the chip bowl altogether. But I will admit I enjoyed a few drinks this weekend. I know it’s bad, but in reality I drink only a hand full of times a year and I enjoy it when I get the chance. One thing I thought of today was though, I was just burning off the calories I consumed rather then burning more fat but I’m not going to beat myself up over it.

We leave for a 4.5 week vacation this week. It will be a lot of traveling and being in places that don’t eat the same foods as I do now. But I have a plan thanks to a link Brett shared on his facebook page a few weeks ago. If you plan on traveling I encourage you to check it out.

Next week’s post will be interesting. It will be my 2 month check-in, so be on the look out for new photos, all my stats and Phase 3 will be coming shortly after that. I will also share with you how traveling went for me and what choices I made. Here’s to hoping for wise, healthy choices.
