Day ??? of the Corset Plan

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I'm terrible at remembering what day it is. It's Thursday, right? I think. emoticon ...anyway!

It's day whatever of the Corset Plan and it's WORKING!!! Since I mentioned the Plan in my blog on March 11th I'm down 2.2 lbs! I really think having a tangible goal is helping a lot.

I've started more strength training, and slacked off on Jillian. I find when I do her video I dread working out for a few days afterwards, so I've fallen back to my old favorite, Billy Blanks 8 Minute Supercharged Cardio, plus strength training. That and watching videos on SparkPeople for chair cardio and standing cardio. It's been way too cold to walk outside, and rainy also. Boo.

Tomorrow I have a doc's appt for the eczema I've been having. It IS improved, and even gone in a few spots, although it has cropped up a couple other places, like my left shin and the backs of my calves. The tinea/ringworm seems to be completely gone, thank goodness. Anyhoo, last time I was at the doc's, a month ago, I weighed in at 202 on his scale, which is consistently 4 lbs heavier than my reading at home. I told him the next time I came in his scale would read under 200! Well at home this morning I was 195.3. emoticon I'm a little worried about the narrow margin since the appt isn't until 9:30 and I'm not sure I can resist eating or drinking anything before the weight in. But if I have to eat a protein bar or something it shouldn't make a lb difference, so I should be fine.

That's my little catch up on the Corset Plan! Have a greaaaaaat Thursday (MY hump day)!!!

    Tell that scale tomorrow who's boss. You are. You are definitely putting in the fitness minutes. I really just can't get into Jillian's style either. I thought it was just me.

    You are going to see some great results now that you are increasing your exercise. And with the strength training you are going to TONE, TONE, TONE which makes for a happy corset!

    Hopefully your doctor's scale showed under 200! You have having a GREAT month! I think the corset plan is a great motivator for you and it's certainly showing.

    That is great!! big grins for sure! I felt the same way about a certain Zumba instuctors class. I was always physically exhausted afterwords and I could barely move. So, she is on the back burner and I started doing other classes and different instructors. I may go back eventually but I want to do things I honestly enjoy and have fun at. Not something I am going to dread!

Good luck with the weigh in!! :)

    The doctor's scale never counts in my mind b/c of the clothes and shoes you have to wear unless you want to be arrested. lol. But it's always nice to see a doctor's eyebrows shoot up with surprise at something GOOD.
Here's hoping you shot his eyebrows clean up off his head this morning! (And if not, blame it on your shoes.)
Congratulations on your 2.2 lost! You are working smart with switching up the dvds.

    The picture in my mind of a plan called "the corset plan" doesn't sound appealing.

    I have a great feeling that you WILL weigh in under 200 this morning!!! The energy coming off your blog is just insane!!! I'm going to have to go read your past blogs to find out what this "corset plan" is... Seems to be working!

Anyways, good luck! I wanted you to know I read your blog, and I'm excited for you!
