Well, it has been two weeks since I made the decision to change my life for the better. I dropped another pound this week for a total of seven pounds all together. I was expecting more, but (and sorry if you’re a guy reading this) I just recently had a visit from “Aunt Flow”. From past experience, I tend to put on a few pounds of water weight when she visits so I am really hoping for a drop on the scale when she leaves. I have made my first check-in with my doctor for this coming Monday so it would be nice to show even more of a loss. I know I shouldn’t be hummed about the one pound loss, since it’s better than nothing, but I really, REALLY want to be below 360. It’s been so long since I have…
This week has been harder because I have been craving food I can’t have, but it feels good to say I have NOT given in! Today, we took my mom to Olive Garden for her birthday and I faced my first out to eat /eating healthy challenge. I picked a salad and a meal of grilled chicken breast with broccoli and asparagus. It was good and I feel it fit my new healthier way of eating. It’s nice to know I CAN still eat out with people without feeling guilty!
For exercise, I have been doing Zumba on the Wii ..20 minute beginner classes and I can tell I am getting a little better each time. I think I am going to also research dance/aerobics videos on Netflix Instant Watch. I think having a lot of variety will keep me from getting bored and I definitely love dancing. It’s just so much fun and I forgot I am exercising!
Well…this is the update for me…I will let you know how next week goes next Friday! 🙂
