Be an AHB Rockstar: Megan Week 3.


61cade7bec4c09e9b43599a5706743bcWe’re all human… the good, the bad, and the ugly

Well, I can honestly say that this was not my best week. I asked Alicia if I could just skip this write up and just go ahead to the next week, but everything and anything must be documented. I feel like this is an episode of MTV’s Diary (whoa, throwback!). Enter, “You think you know, but you have no idea. This is the diary of  Megan trying to get healthy.”

OK, enough reminiscing. This week started out with a snowstorm so it cancelled work and a boot camp and then there was a work outing one night and we all know how that goes. Now, as you know, I am not one for a lot of motivation when it comes to doing things on my own and especially when there are snow days! So, truth be told, I bailed but managed to go to yoga and a boot camp. I am not proud of it, but I did it. And I came clean to Alicia about it and that was a scarier confession than when they made you do it in CCD. Instead of penance in Hail Marys and Our Fathers, she makes you do squats and burpees. The craziest part about this lazy week was how much of a difference I noticed in that one boot camp. Since I have been consistently going my body was used to it and then I didn’t go for three days. Boy, was I sucking wind! Boot camp is never easy, you just get better and I never thought that comment would hold any truth, and now I can see that it does. It makes me never want to miss a boot camp again! I feel like I came so far and then crashed. I could see that I am getting stronger and that I just need to keep at it.

But there is always some good with the bad, right? And the good part of this week was meeting with Andrea. Andrea gave me some great recipes to try out for dinner. I’m not much of a cook so I opted for the easiest and fastest recipes. During my snow day from work, I decided I would try out one of the recipes and of course, the dessert. On the menu was Veggie Stuffed Turkey Meatloaf and Whole Oat Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. I am not one for meatloaf, but this was really good and not that hard at all to make. The only thing I did wrong was make it look like a creepy cake by putting it in a cake pan instead of a loaf pan. I mean, honestly, what 28 year old has a loaf pan? Then came the cookies, super easy and ridiculously delicious! For my boyfriend to like these two new healthy recipes was big too.

This week may not have been the best work out wise but it opened doors for healthier eating. What I am slowly learning on this journey is that you cant beat yourself up over the little things. Alicia will do that for you…haha I kid, I kid! In all seriousness, this is real life. I’m a real person and I’m going to have set backs. This isnt one of those cheesy (mmm, did someone say cheese?) infomercials where you see dramatic results in two weeks. That’s not real. This is real. Things are going to happen but the best part of it is that there is a tomorrow’s ass you can kick to make up for that yesterday.

  1. I died laughing at this: “that was a scarier confession than when they made you do it in CCD.” Just wait…soon you won’t have to confess because you’ll start hearing her voice in your head when you even THINK about skipping a workout or slacking off!

    Hint on the meatloaf: I just kind of shape mine into a loaf and plop it on a cookie sheet (on top of aluminum foil, because let’s be honest: I’m lazy and like to wash as few dishes as possible) and cook. Works great!

    Are those cookies the ones that are just oats, PB, banana, and choco chips? I have seen a recipe floating around for them but haven’t tried them yet because I’m skeptical.

    Great job getting back on track, that’s often the hardest part! :)

  2. It’s all about attitude… If you let the not-so-hot weeks get the best of you, you’ll go into the vault. What is the vault? It’s a place filled with delicious unhealthy food and no exercise. You fall off the grid for so long that you’re afraid/embarrassed to head back to AHB. You’ve taken the first hard step- admitting that it’s hard and you can’t always be perfect but you preserved and went back. That’s pretty rockstar if you ask me. Keep on truckin and remember, everyone has a bad nutrition/fitness day/week/month- just don’t go into the vault!
