Hi. I'm just starting. So far, I've gained 2 pounds, which would have upset me, but I lost 2" from each of my thighs at the same time. I haven't weighed myself since then, which was like a week ago, so I need to do that tomorrow.
We just got a new pool. It's up and running, so I'd like to include it in my goals. I noticed that I can do 10 strokes across the pool (freestyle), as one lap. I'm not sure how many laps I should start with? If one lap = one time across the pool, then I'll start with 4 laps of freestyle. How many times per week? I'm thinking 3x's per week, just in case there's a rainy week. (I will try to exceed that when I'm able to swim more days.)
I'm not doing well on my high protein, low carb plan. We went to Friendlies tonight. I got buffalo chicken tenders and fries. A weakness of mine (buffalo chicken & bleau cheese). And I had some of my kids sundaes. I think what I need is a simple plan of a few different things I can have for breakfast and lunch and just go with that.
I'm also feeling stressed cause I need to de-clutter my house by the weekend cause we're having visitors. I'm gonna try to do most of it tomorrow.
I haven't been drinking my 8 glasses of water, either, because I'm addicted to caffeine, so I drink Diet Coke instead. I know I'm dehydrated from the caffeine.
I feel like I'm a mess. Oh well. I just need to focus.
