I've not blogged in over a month. I'm having electrical / computer problems & it's difficult to stay on. Nevertheless, I've been following my plan for the most part. (Of course you know that "for the most part" means I've jumped off track here & there.)
My weight hasn't changed as much as my body has. I purchased and comfortably wore a size 8 denim skirt. I've also had to purchase tops in a size small. Woohoo!!! The only drawback is that most of what I purchased during my spree in February is now too big. Ughh! I wish the clothes would get smaller along with my body. LOL
I've been carrying a resistance band around with me to make sure I do some type of upper body exercise every couple days. That's felt good. My thighs, despite all the walking & hiking I do are not as tight as I'd like them to be. I need to focus more on plain ol' lower body strength exercises.
SInce the gallbladder surgery, I've only begun doing crunches again about two weeks ago. My belly needs a lot of work, especially the so-called love handles that nobody loves.
I've been here on the site for a while this morning (I have an actual fan blowing by me to keep the computer from getting too hot.), and it's been good to see exercises about which I'd forgotten. Exercises lke dumbbell side bends are the kind I need to help make the love handles disappear. I want then gone (but in a cute way LOL).
I'm hanging in here, trying not-hard-enough to keep the cake out of my mouth. That's my major downfall right now. I won't give up though.
Gonna step up my game a bit this week. I want to be reach a new goal this week. The 5% Summer challenge is a great help in that area.
This week... more lemon water, more strength training, more aerobics, more sleep. Getting enough sleep is still a major challenge for me. fI'll let you know the outcome.
