I have been remote today and having a heck of a time posting the VLAWG – so it may go up later.VLAWWWWG
Physically the biggest challenge has been regaining my milk supply that I lost with a bout of food poisoning two weeks ago. I ate a lot of coconut milk ice cream and turkey burgers to get it back via putting on some weight fast. I feel it is there now but I have been cautious with my exercise to make sure I am not depleting myself. I crossfitted hard today (including a lot of cleans and presses) and can feel it with not being 100% balanced with my nutrition and workouts. Hopefully my body will work itself out this week as I go hard with my workouts.
I am eating a bagel and having a mix1 to make up for it and see how that works. It is more silly carb heavy than I would like but feeding my baby is my #1 priority in any part of my journey – just like I vowed it would be during my pregnancy.
My shout outs to myself this week…
#1 I have been invited to lead a vlogging workshop at EVO conference in Park City, UT this summer. I am pretty thrilled.
#2 Today I cleaned for the first time since I was a jock. That is power-lifting cleaning, not clean yo’ house cleaning. I did not have a support rack and weighted a bar to be 80 pounds for 45 presses and 15 cleans as part of a workout in crossfit. I felt cool.
This week’s Mamavation blogging carnival is sponsored by a Colorado company. I rarely do the blogging carnival but I got to support the local.
How do you reward yourself after you have worked hard towards a goal? Do you have any pampering rewards thought out for future goals?
I generally reward myself with cute workout clothes if it is a physical goal. When I reach goal body fat percentage I am getting myself a Kelly Moore Clark bag for my photography equipment. In my more immediate goals I have a bunch of massage gift certificates for various weight/body fat metrics.
