September...


Saturday, September 08, 2012

I can't believe it's already September! The summer flew by. My new kids seem pretty good so far, so I'm excited to have a good and productive school year.

As for progress weight loss wise, I've been hovering in the mid-upper 150's for the past few weeks. I've stayed in my calorie ranges and worked out 4 times a week and still the scale hasn't moved consistently. I've added extra cardio into my workouts to see if that might help. I also started the Spartan workout with my trainer, that is intense! Apparently it's the same workout the actors from the movie 300 used to get in shape.

According to my BodyMedia armband, every day I'm burning roughly 2200-2400 calories, and I'm eating around 1300-1500 a day. Maybe I'm not eating enough? Honestly it scares me to add more calories. It's a slippery slope for me, and I worry that if I add in another 1-200 calories, it will quickly become another 5-600, which will then lead to me giving up and not worrying about it. I've come too far to let that happen!

Anyway, perhaps I can visually see a difference from the past month. This was me in the beginning of August at a Reds game:



And here I am out with a friend on Wednesday night. This is almost exactly a month later:



I can see a LITTLE bit of difference. My face looks somewhat thinner. I guess I need to start tweaking things a little bit more to find the balance that works for me. It's frustrating because I feel like I've been doing the right things. Maybe it'll just take time, who knows.

Alright, it's time for me to get ready for the football game. Looks like it's going to be a wet one!

    I am also hovering around the mid to upper 150s and cant break through! How was your September? Did you end up trying more calories? I agree, Scary!
You look great! I think you carry the 150's better than I, I'm ready for some 140's!! Keep up the good work! :)

&, happy friday to you!
