Trying to make a dent...

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Still hanging with Atkins - haven't really lost any weight for two weeks, but I'm still strict on the diet - very close to induction levels.

I had my second class of Jiu Jitsu today and I can feel my stomach and neck muscles really well. A dull ache is how I'd really describe it. One of the stretching exercises is to lay down and then roll your legs over your head to touch your feet behind your head...my feet only went half way. The instructor was then helping me - lifting and pushing my feet to where they were supposed to go - I would've told him to stop, but it's hard to talk when your fat is compressing your lungs.

Seriously though - it actually was pretty fun and I learned some new things. I weighed myself before I went and when I returned and the scale showed a loss of over 3 pounds of water; however, I've rehydrated and am back to my same weight again.

Hopefully my exercise of commuting to work by bike and of JJ will help the scale get moving again.

    Great job on the exercise. I have a mental picture that will probably give me nightmares! Watch the diet. Too much of anything is not good. Keep an eye on your kidneys. Protein can do a job on them.

    Keep up the faith... not too sure about Atkins "thinking" though.... to much protein is hard on your system.
