Passed Week 2 and I am still at it!
I am in the middle of my 3rd week of my latest attempt at my journey to health.
I have been extremely faithful to my 4 goals I posted last time. Last week I ended up dropping a big fat ZERO. This was extremely frustrating but it did teach me a couple of things. 1. My body has to have a workout in the morning and then later in the day in order to drop weight. 2. I have to be so much better about how much I eat when attending events. I went to a Polo Match last Saturday and the food was incredibly yummy (If you need a caterer go to Culinary Crafts....seriously the food was heavenly. They made trout taste like protein candy!) so I just kept eating. BIG MISTAKE! I was so sick the rest of the day and into the next morning. No wonder when I stepped on the scale a few days later, for my weekly weigh-in, I hadn't lost anything.
This week I have added an additional workout later in my day. So I do Cardio (mostly interval cardio) walk/aerobics dvd for 1/2 hour then I interval bike for 1/2 hour (I am up to 9 miles in 30 minutes....this may not be much but it is tons to me!). Then around 3pm (sometimes later in the evening if I have alot going on) I do "Just Dance" high intensity songs for 45 mins to an hour or I go on a brisk walk for an 1/2 hour to an 1 hour. Every other morning I add weight circuit to my routine and that lasts around 1/2 or a little more. My goal this week with weigh loss is to drop another 5 pounds. My daughters birthday was yesterday so I had a little cake and then today I was so hungry after church I ate lunch but then gave in and ate cake again so I am worried about that but I didn't lose control so I believe I still stayed in my calories. I wish I wouldn't have eaten it though.
I weigh in on Tuesdays so we will see what the scale says.
Hoping it is at least 5 down!
I have noticed two funny things....
1. Watching reruns of "The Biggest Loser" helps me stay focused on my goal and helps with my motivation.
2. The more I sweat the more I sweat. I am working hard enough now that my clothes are really wet when I am done working out. But I am also noticing I start sweating much easier when I am doing house chores or other things around the house. Not sure what that means....weird. lol :)
