Day 40, 17.2 pounds gone - wonderful way of eating.

Friday, May 18, 2012

In the last week I've only lost aout .3 of a pound so it seems -- I think that when the body loses a lot of weight it hits plateaus and adjustments. I've also added in some other foods that are acceptable for my diet that might slow the weight loss, but in reality if I get concerned all I need to do is have a mostly "whole foods" day -- this usually will bring about the weight loss that I'm looking for. Two days in a row of whole foods is an added bonus.

This week some new items I've added are: Raspberry Sorbet from Trader Joes (yummm) and then Ezekiel bread, TJ Strawberry Spread and TJ Almond/Flax seed butter -- those were really nice additions. Can't have too much of them - but they've been great to have.

The swimming time is improving! God blessed me with a record time on the 100 yard swim: 1:30 !!! (I don't know when I'll see that time again) but that was amazing!! I always pray before my swim and often during the swim. We've been working so hard on improving our time!! So recently a Kids Swim Coach told me about the "Straight Arm Recovery" stroke, he showed me how -- it was an answer to prayer. This is one main factor in this improved time, which for me is amazing. It was only 4-6 weeks ago or so that 2:05 was tough!!! God is good!

    Hmm I've never heard of straight arm recovery - I'll have to try it out and see if I can add it to my bag of tricks to get through my races :)

    Congrats on your swim time! And you are absolutely correct - the body learns how to adapt to the challenges it faces so have fun being creative with your workouts and keep your body guessing!!
