I was truly trying not to break my this morning. I think it may not be accurate. It kept giving me different readings and I was getting really annoyed. But I finally went with 292 which makes me -7lbs for my first week! Not bad, eh?
This is how I feel
I am thinking about my goals for this week. I will put what I'm thinking of thus far. I may add to it on tomorrow's blog.
1)Go from drinking a minimum of 8 glasses to 9 glasses of water-I pretty much did this last week anyway with the exception of one day I believe.
2)Exercise 5-6x's this week to alternate between BL High Intensity and Boot Camp workouts.
3)Gym 1x this week, possibily 2x's depending on how Saturday goes w/it being Halloween. Might get my workout chasing my preschooler!
4)4-5 f/v a day. This proved to be a little bit of a challenge for me this past week. So I want to get another week under my belt before I up it any more! I know that this & water truly aided me in the weight I lost. I think it helped get the excess water out of my system!
I will think on this some more. Right now my mind's a blank.
Ok, this morning I hopped on the box with the telling numbers aka and it said I was down another 1.5! Now my official Weigh In (WI)day is Sunday but this means that as of this past Sunday I've lost 6.5lbs!!!! I am so proud of myself and the major adjustments I made in my life/attitude this week.
I worked out 7/7 days this week-I don't remember ever having done this in the past! Last night while I was at the gym, I did 30 min on the treadmill, a little strengthening, then I did another 10 minutes on the eliptical. You don't know what a mental fight that was with myself. But thanks to my iPod Shuffle, I was able to work through the pain and not stare at the time left! Then I did 15 more minutes on the treadmill.
Today I did my BL workout as I have some shopping to do this evening and have a feeling I'll be too pooped to exercise late this evening.
It is wonderful for me to see the changes in myself this week. I'm soo soo proud of myself and what I've accomplished. I realize it's only been one week since I GOT SERIOUS. The plan is to continue to stay serious. I need watch what I am eating and find that delicate balance between eating like there's no tomorrow and starving myself. And I truly feel like I'm right in the middle and achieving that balance!
I am so thankful for everyone who's replied to my blogs this week, sent me goodies and left me comments on my Sparkpage. You all gave me the strength to keep on keepin on and to STAY SERIOUS!
Now, I want to challenge you all to give your weight loss journey your very best efforts. You deserve it and your body won't let you down in the long run. So DO YOU!
WE CAN DO THIS AS LONG AS WE STICK TOGETHER & STAY SERIOUS!!!
Well my boss just offered me half of her bacon, egg & cheese burrito and I said NO! Go me!!! I am not really hungry. I ate a banana on the way into work about 6am. Then I ate some banana nut Cheerios when I got here just after 7am. It's now 930 and I'm still ok.
Another happy moment was last night. I had worked out 4 days thus far. TOM is visiting and I was like, I just want to lay down. NOPE. I got my tail up and did the 25 min BL Low Intensity workout! I was SO proud of myself
here I come!!
So yesterday I had 9 glasses of water, did my workout, paid attention to hunger. My f/v's ?? I believe I did get my 4 in for the day!
I can't believe it. I stepped on the scale & I was down another lb! That's 5lbs since Sunday!!!! And TOM is here too! WOOHOO! I will take it!
So my quick recap for Wed:
*20 min Strength & Sculpt done
*9 glasses of water!!!!
*4+f/v-I had 2-7oz bags of spinach that I sauteed & ate...THANK YOU VERY MUCH:)
*Mindful of what I was eating but did overdue it at times-however, it's a work in progress, right?
Well I need to get back to work. But just had to share my exciting news with everyone!
Thank you for all your support! With God & my Spark buddies, I CAN'T GO WRONG!
I love being off on Wednesdays. It gives me the chance to stop and appreciate things I might not usually. I have extra time to get my daughter ready for school which always turns into quality time with her. That doesn't happen when I am working 10 hour days. She also helps to give me a fresh perspective on life:)
Here is my recap from yesterday. I actually wrote it down in my planner so all I had to do was type today! Exercise & eating healthy must be feeding my brain!
*Consumed 10+ glasses of water-Go me!
*4 f/v-a good Spark buddy has recommended I up this-and I will-but first I need to get back in the habit of eating some as I hadn't been really been consuming that many. BABY STEPS!
*30 Minutes BL Workout Low Intensity-WOOHOO
*Mindful of what I was eating
*Assessed if I was hungry-I considered getting another SF pudding or mousse but stopped & evaluated how I was feeling. I discovered I was full & kept reading my book! BIG STEP for me!!!
I checked the scale and it's going down. That's what I'm talking about. I will go do my grocery shopping this morning so I can get my meals set for the rest of the week!
Let's do this people! WE ARE WORTH IT & WE DESERVE IT!
