Weigh Day - Week 111

Friday, May 03, 2013

Bread Experiment = So far, so good. My energy levels are still pretty low, but I remain hopeful. I'm reading "Wheat Belly" and am really considering giving up all wheat products.

Nutrition = This past weekend was a mixture of bad and good. I did my best not to overeat, but I did anyway. This week hasn't been too bad at all though

Water Intake = Excellent, didn't drink enough on Monday though.

Exercise = Very good! I'm proud of myself!

1). After Zumba last Saturday, a lady ran up behind me saying, "I couldn't see the instructor so I watched you, you dance so beautifully! I just wanted to tell you that!" So nice right? Even when I felt like I couldn't make it through the class because I was so tired, her compliment made my day.

2). During Zumba on Tuesday night, our instructor asked if anyone had lost any weight. I quietly raised my hand, told how much and the entire class clapped for me. It was so nice and it felt good.

3). I did almost 500 (465 to be exact) minutes of cardio last month which is something I never thought I would possibly do. I'm going to do my best to do 500 this month, time permitting.

4). One of my best friends was blown away by my appearance at coffee last night. "You look SO good!" I hadn't seen her in a few months (since December or so), so it was certainly nice to hear.

5). I now love artichokes and brussel sprouts. Discovering new veggies ROCKS!

6). Going to wear my Mother's size 10 skirt to my performance on Monday night. Looks great!

Additional Notes:
I really don't think I'm going to get to 170 with things going the way they are. There's just no way. I haven't given up mind you, but I want to be realisitic. I'd rather be a fit 196 any day!

    emoticon for you and the lady in Zumba class.
    When we have something nice to say, we should always share it and not keep it to ourselves.

    Brava, MISS B!!! (rising to my feet for a rousing hand of applause for you!) Not only are you a stunning success in every sense of the expression, but I think what distinguishes you is that you're always making progress not in just one area of life, but on so MANY fronts! You are a real human dynamo, and I have to say, I am very much in awe of you and ALL your accomplishments! Rock on, m'dear!! - Susan emoticon

    That's a BIG WooHoo on ALL of that! I understand wanting to be realistic, and if you work at getting fit, I'm sure the rest of the weight will come off. I had almost decided to "give up" on my goal wright, but decided if I continue to eat right and exercise, if it comes off, it comes off. You're doing awesome!

    Those are awesome compliments! You have done emoticon and I am so happy that you are incorporating more exercise into your regime. It will definitely tone and tighten you up. Don't focus on 170 lbs right now. Just keep doing what you are doing and you will get where you need to be.

    Just because it takes longer does not mean you will not arrive.
