My Son Is A Plank Master and HEY! Why so long no blog?

image

Yep. That’s it right there. My 11 year old son held a 3 minute plank. A plank on his hands, not forearms. This was before doing 21 pushups, too. He was bitten by the fitness bug last night and just couldn’t quit. Playing with the medicine ball, situps, planking, pushups, etc. I’m still shocked at his plank time. He hasn’t attempted a plank in months, and then he could barely hold it for a minute and a half! It must be all the football he’s been playing at the park with his buddies.

As for me, I’m getting my groove back. It’s not that I’ve NOT been exercising, just not to my full potential. And I recognize that. I think sometimes we need these little setbacks to help us remember why we started in the first place…
…While you’re (I’m) scrolling facebook liking and sharing amazing inspirational fitness and nutrition photos or info, and you realize that while you’re doing this you’re sitting on your ass eating a donut…
Yeah, that’s a good wake up call. You (I) want to give yourself (myself) a good smack for being such a hipocrit.

So with a new mindset; no more food deprivation, but portion control… No more being mad at the husband or kids for indulging, either indulge with them or choose an alternative… No more skipped exercises, I’ve come too far to look back now… No more dreading a workout, do what I love and what I’m feeling on that particular day… I think I’ve got the right outlook now. The one that works for me.

Hey, I haven’t even been on this journey for a year. I still have A LOT to learn. I’ve just decided to let that learning happen. I can’t do a 180 over night, or in 10 months, it’s going to take some time.

And I plan to truly ENJOY the road ahead.

Tilapia Foil Packets

I LOVE this idea! Everyone gets to pick their own seasonings and veggies that go into their packet, so everyone is happy, and if not it’s their own fault. *hehe*

This one is mine. It includes the tilapia, zucchini, squash, red bell pepper rings, a small scoop of oil and some zesty lemon seasoning with a couple lemon wedges. My sweet potato fries are in the oven, too.
What’s on your table?
