So last night feeling bad about all that is going on with my brain issues I caved and ate ALOT of coconut creme hershey kisses. I had a Great workout yesterday morning but just broke even in calories as I consummed all I had worked for in feeling sorry for myself snacks last night. I will be glad when the doctors appointment happens on Friday so I can get some answers and stop worrying about it.
But on to the Good News. I knew this morning I would not see a loss because weigh in is not until tomorrow but I jumped on the scale anyway and it actually showed a loss. YAHHHH! I was sure I would not loss anything because of the I feel sorry for myself snacks I have consumed this week. Though I felt sorry for myself I never stopped working out and my digestive systems seems to be working this week. So double Yahhhh! Then I took my measurements. In 6 1/2 weeks I have lost 3.75 inches. I would love to be able to lose another 1.25 by easter to make it a even 5 inches in 8 weeks. How great would it be if I could lose 3 more pounds by then to get down to 185. But I am not going to stress over it because if I lose a pound a week I will be happy. A pound a week gets me within 5 pounds of my healthy weight range for my height. Because of my height I am suppose be be somewhere aroung 135 to 144. At that rate I will be wearing single diget sized by next winter. YAHHHH
This morning I did 45 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes of belly dancing. I joined the 5K training team a couple days ago so I am going to run again tomorrow morning as I am trying to get in 3 runs a week and I did my first yesterday. Not running that fast but I am glad to say I am not just walking on the treadmill. I am actually sweating which is new. Last year when I worked out I never sweated that is because I never pushed myself outside of my comfort zone. This time I am happy to say I am trying to really push my limits and sweat off the inches. Sadly I am still wearing the same size pants so I have not sweated off a pants size yet but soon I will be. I am also doing more strength training in my trouble areas as well. Maybe a little more concentration in those areas will help. You know the area around my stomach and rear. the two largest parts of my body. ha ha
Well I hope everyone has a great day and keep sweating!
