I was feel a little discouraged last night when I put on my new tank top to wear to the gym. It was just a little tighter than I thought it should have been. I didn't fuss about it though and just went on my way. Husband and I went together last night. We did a fairly short cardio workout on the treadmill, lifted some weights, did a few minutes on a rowing machine, and then I went to the mat. After doing some kettlebell arm workouts, I grabbed a medicine ball and my husband and we played catch for a few minutes. He decided he was finished and, when he went to the locker room, I went back to the weights and used the rotary torso machine... gosh I love that thing! I went to the sauna after my workout and it was the best sweat I've gotten. I felt so fresh afterwards.
I've stuck with my no-meat diet with hardly any faults and I'm so proud of that. I made my very first veggie burger last night. Lentils, rice, and carrots. It was actually really good. I posted my recipe on the site. I've been eating a lot of Asian and Mexican since I started this meatless journey. It's so easy to add beans with Mexican instead of meat and tons of veggies in Asian instead of meat. I've also been drinking tons of water which I know has helped with everything.
Tomorrow is my next weigh in. I'm a little nervous after last week's huge progress. I know the scale means so little but it does help to see it going down when you know there is so far left to go. My clothes are fitting better though, and Mike (husband) said he can definitely see a difference in my midsection and neck/face. That means a lot. Feeling and seeing the progress means so much more than the number on the scale.
I am off to the gym again tonight with a friend from work. I am going to show her what a real work out is. She's a treadmill queen that doesn't know how to use the weights and hardly strays from her routine. Well, things are gonna get CRAZY tonight!!!
