So today's workout was a time challenge. 3 rounds, 4 times through and I BEAT MY TIME! By a whole minute :D
So excited to still be seeing progress. I thought, going into this, that when going back through the workouts I might not see any difference but I am! Change just keeps on coming! I know that when I do these for the third time around that I'm really going to have to push myself though. I am working out at maximum capacity, trying to beat my times.
The way I've been doing it lately is telling myself that I'll only let my HR drop to 160-165 before making myself start back up again (if I'm taking a break). I also have been trying to push myself to go longer when my HR is reading in the 170s. Gotta keep pushing if you want real results!
So, yeah, that started off my week 4. It was a great start too, if I might add
Feeling great, feeling confident and I'm hoping that this Sunday shows me in the 150s weight-wise. That is an optimistic goal (over 2 lbs away) but I really want it. I'm going to eat really clean and not go over my calories. I'm also going to push really hard on my workouts and see if I can sneak in some bike rides with my family as well. Getting down to weights that are in the 150s is uncharted territory for me! I know that I obviously had to weigh in that range at some point but I never did see it! I went from "married and around 140s" to "moving, married, and 160s" trying to lose weight - at that point. I had dropped 15 lbs back in 2010 when I found out that I was pregnant with my son :) That was when I made a note of my 163 lb weight which I BLEW OUT OF THE WATER in this last weigh in! Yep, I am OFFICIALLY below my pre-pregnancy weight and it FEELS SO GOOD! FINALLY!
So anyways, sorry for all caps-ing ya'll a lot. I never did say that my weigh in this last Sunday put me below my pre-pregnancy weight, on sparkpeople at least, and so.. I get a little excited thinking about it haha.
It only gets better from here! I hope everyone's day was good today. I'm about to head to bed, to be honest. I'm beat!
