It's been 7 weeks now since I started working out consistently. Five more weeks to go. I feel as if I have already nailed it. My goal was to exercise hard and consistently at least 4 days a week. Emphasis on hard. Even if I do 20 minutes , it should be challenging and leave me sweaty and panting. I have done that for 7 weeks now! Admittedly this last week I did not challenge myself as much as I knew I should, maybe it's a sign of starting to slack off, resting on my laurels so to speak. Now that I have noted that I'll up the ante from now on.
I still don't know how much weight I have lost. That was another condition, not to weight myself until the 12 weeks are over. But I definitely see changes. I have biceps! My butt is higher and rounder, not so saggy anymore. My tummy is almost flat again. And my love handles are becoming love bumps! It's fantastic.
I've started eating low carb again this week. It's been a little harder to stay on track but I will not give up. I am using the same principles to continue going no matter what that I am using with my exercise. It will work out I know.
Next week will be challenging. 2 weeks away from home. Ironically eating clean is easy for me when I am on the road but exercise is a challenge. The opposite is true. I suppose that might just be the answer, focus on exercise when at home and on eating when away. Maybe that's what they mean when they go on about balance. Hmmm, there is wisdom in there somewhere....
