That being said, I totally slacked on my fitness and calorie logging this week. However, I do have a great excuse. My Mom and my Aunt were in town from California most of the week. And we all know how it is when Mom is in town. All she wants to do is shove food down your throat…lol. I’ll admit I didn’t put up much of a fight though.
No joke, my Mom is an amazing cook, and my Aunt is actually a trained gourmet chef, so there was no shortage of food while they were here. Let me give you just a glimpse of what was made in my house this week. We had brownies (Day 1), chips galore, homemade (from scratch) French Onion Soup, the most amazing pasta prima vera I’ve ever had, cookies, FRENCH BREAD!!!
I haven’t had food like that in my house in months! You’ll see below just how bad my calorie counting went. Wednesday and Thursday were a blur, not sure what I ate those days, but I know it was a lot.
So this was a preplanned cheat day. I should have waited and made one of the later days of the week a cheat day, but you know hind sight and all.
Goal – 1200
Calorie Intake – 2106
Over – 906 (Barf)
Today was better. I actually got some cardio in and did 2 rounds of the challenge.
Goal – 1611
Calorie Intake – 1575
Under – 36
My Mom and Aunt arrived in the afternoon on this day. I was busy most of the day with clients, which equals no lunch for Erin. My calories are way to low for today because of missing lunch.
Goal – 1200
Calorie Intake – 993
Under – 207
Here’s where things start to get a little hairy. Mom and Aunt are well rested and ready to eat, drink & be marry.
Goal – 1200
Calorie Intake – 1247
Over – 47
Pretty sure all I logged for this day was my breakfast, and by the time I went to log my day I had totally forgotten everything I had ate all day. I think I blocked it out or something…lol
See above for today’s excuse.
Mom and Aunt left for home this morning. No more excuses. Getting back on track as of today!
Goal – 1200
Calorie Intake – 1168
Under – 32
Well, that was this week. I’m moving on to next week and a new month which also means a new challenge. I had a really hard time coming up with a challenge to do this month. I thought about doing a blogilates challenge, or focusing on just one body part again, but nothing was jumping out at me. After searching Pinterest high and low for some challenge inspiration I decided to make my own challenge.

This 30 Day Challenge should be a great start to getting the Summer body we all want. Don’t forget to get your cardio in at least 3 days a week. Next week I will post examples of proper form for each exercise. I hope you all enjoy this one. I’m fairly positive I will like this one better than the March Fitness Challenge.
