Nick's Mini Goals for the Week:

~ Do 100 sit-ups (0/100)
~ Do 100 push-ups (0/100)
~ Drink 64 ounces of water/day (0/7)

Can I just say that before yesterday, I don't remember the last time that I did a sit-up or a push-up. It has easily been more than 3 years. I underestimated the amount of struggle I would have doing something as "basic" as sit-ups and push-ups. My first set of 10 sit-ups weren't anything compared to the second set and the last five. Around sit-up number 17 I literally couldn't sit up anymore! It was a complete struggle to finish the 25 sit-ups that I intended to do yesterday, but I finished strong! As for the push-ups, I tried doing 1 normally and couldn't. I couldn't even do 1 push-up! I decided to do the modified push-ups (otherwise known as the girls push-up) and I managed to do the full 25 that way.

Drinking 64 ounces of water isn't usually a struggle for me, except on the weekends. Yesterday, however, I made sure to get in all of my water for the day!

As for our meals, we woke up to find there were not very many options. It was clear that grocery day was upon us! I found a jello cup for breakfast and had no idea what we were going to do for lunch. Thankfully, my grandma saved the day and invited us over to have lunch at her house!


Lunch: My first plate.

Lunch: My second plate.
I really tried not to get a second plate but I was super hungry since the jello cup I had for breakfast didn't do a thing for me! After we ate, my husband and grandpa watched the Nascar race in the garage while I grabbed the best seat in the house and began to make my grocery list.

The most comfy seat in the house at my grandma's.
An hour or so later, before we left, I grabbed a snack from their stash of goodies. I could never have ho-ho's in our house so it was a nice little treat, today!

Grandma always has the best snacks.
 
I wasn't feeling really well after our visit at my grandparents so I took an hour nap and relaxed for a bit. I made a large pot of salsa con queso chicken for dinner and we had lots of yummy leftovers to freeze! I was really excited to make this meal today because we tried new noodles. I bought them because they looked fun and cute. If you read my post from the other day, I guess you could say that I have a thing for cute food.

Loads of leftovers and our dinner plates.

After dinner, we went to my moms house to visit my little brother. He always makes us laugh! I love visiting him! My husband left my moms house with some homemade banana bread. I was pretty proud of staying away from that treat, and can't wait for him to eat the bread for breakfast so the temptation is out of the house!

My little brother!
We had an awesome Sunday and a great first day of our new Challenge!

How was your weekend?
