Day 10 of 30

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

This morning was No More Trouble Zones DVD. This is a tough one and I've never been able to get all the way through it....its those darn planks again at the start of circuit 5 that cause me to quit every time! Today I took a mini break between circuits 4 and 5 and stretched my shoulders and triceps and then got back into it and I was able to continue til the end! :D It may also be that I'm getting stronger and the planks aren't as difficult as they were 10 days ago but I think that mini break helped too. I was thinking of switching circuits 3 and 4 as 2 and 3 are easy for me and by the end of 4 I want to die. Perhaps I'll try that on Saturday when I do this DVD again.

Later in the morning I was having a particular "skinny moment" and decided to try the dreaded scale again. (The last time I weighed myself after sweating my butt off for 5 days it said I was up a pound! :P) Low and behold I lost 3.6lbs! YEAH! *Happy dance!* I've also noticed my jeans are less tight, I'm down a hole on my belt and I can tie my shoes up easier. All good things too! :D

Anyways, I'm off to celebrate. I think we'll go out for dinner tonight so I have to go scour web sites to plan what I'll eat and put it into my nutrition tracker. ;)

    MJV071111 - I normally try to keep weighins to once a week. Sometimes I cheat and jump on halfway thru the week but I try not to freak out about that number since I know I fluctuate throughout the week depending on what was for dinner the day before (that darn sodium!!) or when my strength training days are.

    Great job - belts are actually a great indicator for me - I go down a notch for every 10 lbs I lose - Unfortunately it goes the other way also!!
    Do you find daily scale checks are tough because of the inaccuracy of the scales?

    Good luck and keep it going!! emoticon
