Pound # 18

Friday, July 26, 2013

I've started thinking of each pound individually, as I lose it, and celebrating its departure! Pound number 18 is taking forever to take a hike!!! Haha I've been working on it all week, and it's going, but ever-so-slowly.

Muscle weighs more than fat though. I have been weight training so I'm sure I've built a little new muscle. You don't get to up the weights on your workout without it, right? That's still so exciting. I did an elbow plank for 30 seconds the other day, that's a big deal. SO hard! I did the circuit-training vid 4 days in a row, so today is a rest day. I think I need one.

I've got piles of green beans to eat up, thanks to the CSA. I tried oven-roasted green beans last night, and wowee! They're so yummy! If you have green beans to eat up, try that. Sparkrecipes is a great resource, I love looking up a single ingredient and getting all kinds of new ideas to try. I ate the beans like french fries, and it was awesome because they're just veggies and you can eat a ton of them and not ruin your eating day!

    Good plan, Emily! Congratulations on the length of your plank.
Muscle takes up less space than fat, so be sure to check your measurements occasionally, too!
I'll have to check out that recipe... it sounds delicious.
