Zumba 10 Day Accelerated Fat Loss program - Day 2 and 3
Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Let me tell you about day 2. It sucked. It worse than sucked but I don't even know the word to describe it. It was a cluster &^%$ of me trying to do the moves and it going just too fast for me to figure it out. But I didn't stop moving for the entire hour even if everything I did was wrong. It moves fast and I had only done this dvd one time before now. BIG mistake. The next time I do this 10 day challenge (which will end 2 days before my birthday on the 28th of march) I will make sure in that time off to give this dvd a lot more chances so i can figure it out and not feel so stupid trying to do it the second time around. The music is great and it makes me want to dance but I have 2 left feet and the amount of time I swore would make my mom cry. It needs to get better.
Food was good. Tried a new sparkpeople recipe for honey chicken stir fry and I ate every last bite even though I was full. I still need to remember to add more veggies and fruit in throughout the day and I took your advice Christina and steamed veggies to mix in the stir fry last night. They were delicious but I need to incorporate more of them into my food plan for the rest of the day. It shouldn't be hard. I'm having a hard time getting to the bottom of my range and an extra banana or some carrot sticks and dip would definitely help. My other problem is still not getting enough protein. I make it to my bottom range and about 20 into it but I have soooo much of my range left that i feel like I should do better. On the plus side I barely made it into the bottom range of my fat intake again so I know I'm pretty on track with that.
Today was a good day. It was Zumba toning and so much fun. I love the feel of burning muscles and the ache afterwards from knowing they got used really good.
My breakfast was special k cereal and lunch a toasted whole wheat bagel with egg beaters and chicken bacon and a glass of orange juice. Tonight will be turkey burgers and a salad.
I could use some advice though. I'm the biggest phony for telling other people not to weigh every day and then doing it myself but I find for the most part it helps keep me in check. But here's my problem. My weight - even though I think I'm doing everything right- is going up. I've gained like almost 3 lbs since TOM started and thought it was his fault but it ended yesterday and my weight jumped up another half pound this morning. I don't understand this gain. I'm not drinking any more water than normal. I'm not over eating at all. With TOM gone I was pretty sure my weight would drop back down but it's fluctuated instead and it bugs me. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. And yes I know I shouldn't weigh every day and take it to heart but if I'm screwing up somehow I'd like to know so I can correct it.
