I think I may have actually dropped 3 lbs this week!!! I'm starting to lose track which is AWESOME!!
I reached my goal this week of working out every day before work. I stuck with the same 25 minute cardio kickboxing video and I know that I am getting stronger. I am doing the moves much stronger than my first week and I am actually keeping up with the instructor! The sweat alone is enough to show me I'm putting a lot into it.
I was very surprised to see another lb loss this morning. I was getting use to my body losing and gaining 1-3 lbs in a night so seeing a consistent loss for the past week has been a real high for me!! What a great source of energy and excitement when you see that number on the scale go down.
I was a tad nervous this morning because my calorie, carb and fat intake yesterday was way over. I don't mind seeing the fat increase but I know once those carbs increase, I'm in trouble. But at the same time, I had a sneaking suspicion that my body needed everything on the high end yesterday. After a full week of hard core working out, I was so very hungry and it was Friday, nothing but good food temptations everywhere. But I actually was impressed with my choices even if it was on the higher calorie end. I could tell my body was just hungry for some solid, fatty foods yesterday. Clearly my body was happy for the increase but now I have to take it down a notch and stay within range today. My goal for the next 4 days is to stay under 1400 calories so that yesterday doesn't come back to bite me in the bum.
Speaking of goals, I'm going to stick to the working out in the am before work. I kind of want to hold myself accountable for only 3 days but I think I should push it for 4. When I don't work out, my day is just crappy. I kind of get a nice jolt of energy from my morning workouts, my head is a little more screwed on and its easier for me to get myself and everyone else out the door with ease if I have my workouts. I've tried the "lets sleep in a lil longer method" and it causes utter chaos. So as much as I do love the comfort of my bed, I think I should stick this out another week. Besides, I am loving the weight loss!!
So with all of that said, this week's goal is another strong week of workouts before work and getting in as much activity on my days off. Which at this point, it shouldn't be a problem because as of yesterday, my baby girl became a crawler. Yep, I now I have a sprinting 2 year old and a crawling 9 month old...there is no stopping me now.
New goal added is to be in onederland by my babies 1st Birthday, July 29th. That is 20 lbs in 3 months. Big goal but I don't want my daughter to remember me as being obese.
