Beginning week 3!

Monday, January 19, 2015

It's the start of the 3rd week, and I'm happy to report that I've been doing well with staying in my calorie range. Some days I may have been stretching the top of my limit, but it has stayed my focus and I've kept things under control. That's a definite win!

This week I am planning 3 workout days: M, W, F. Tonight I'm planning on something that gets my blood pumping and sweat going. I haven't decided what just yet, but the hubby will be at work and I think it will be a good start to the week. I'm thinking jogging or turbo jam or maybe an attempt at T25.

I have a bit of a personal goal. I have a meeting for work coming up on Feb 24th, and I will be seeing a lot of co-workers from the main office that I don't see very often... so I would like to see what I can lose before then. It's 5 weeks away... is 10 pounds lost realistic or too much? I suppose I'd have to work pretty hard in addition to the calorie control to see that much come off...
I guess that will show how bad I want it, right? Maybe it is time for a little T25 challenge. I just have to remember that not being able to do everything at first isn't a failure. I'm out of shape, and I'll have to work to get back in shape, right?

I didn't weigh in yesterday, so I guess tonight I'll get a start weight and some measurements. I tend to rely mostly on the scale but that's not always the most accurate or the best way to see progress happening. I think my jeans might fit a tiny bit better, and my encouraging husband said he thought I felt skinnier, but I really don't think I've lost enough to "feel" just yet. lol

Ok, my blog is as scattered as my thoughts today. Work is almost over and I just need to stay motivated to do my workout tonight!

    I think 1-2 lbs a week is the "Recommended" weight loss - so you could do it! But it would definitely take some serious dedication.
    Although it sounds like you've got that - so I say GO FOR IT!

    10 lbs in 5 weeks is pretty aggressive, so you'd have to be REALLY dedicated with those workout sessions...but it could be doable....Regardless, you're bound to more than halfway there if you don't get off track, so give it your best shot! You can do it! emoticon
