I have cheekbones?

Tuesday, December 06, 2011

It's been quite a while since I made a blog post so here goes.. I've lost a few pounds, not as fast as I would've liked, but there are several other positive indicators telling me that I am still on track .. I can see my cheekbone structure for the first time since high school.. I can tell when I've lost even a couple of lbs, whereas before I could've lost (or gained) 10 lbs and not even known it, I am getting some definition in my core (I have a core?), etc. Spark really helps me keep at it. Even though I don't usually check in more than once a day, I stay accountable.

My cardio days are up to 4 x a week and I've kicked it up a notch by lengthening my time at the pool and doing about 20 laps each time swimming with my fins (get some Zoomers, you guys!) instead of just jogging. I try to get on the stationary bike on the days I don't go to the pool even if it's only for 15 minutes. It all adds up and I am on a roll. yay, me. Now if I could just get into strength training! THAT'S NEXT.

    Congrats on your progress. I remember one time (long ago) when I lost weight and was so excited to find out I had "knee caps." Now my goal is to SEE my toes again without having to bend way over. emoticon
