Hel-lo weight-loss! I LOVE YA! :)
This morning I when I stepped on the scale, I was hoping to see 3 pounds. I knew what I had taken in and knew what I had burned. I was prepared to see less, but I was SHOCKED to see FIVE pounds! Whaaaaaa?!?! AWESOME!!!
I had barely rolled out of bed...trying to convince myself to get 30-Day Shred over with for the day. I thought, Well, let me go weigh myself....we'll go from there... Ha! After doing my 5 lb. happy dance, I was READY for some Jillian Michaels! I'm thinking, Let's kick it up a notch this morning! Level 2, here I come! Well, I did bump the workout up to Level 2, but, I'm kinda wishing I hadn't. Ha! It was pretty crazy. I made it through, but with MUCH modification... It was tough! I probably should've stayed on Level 1 for a little bit longer. I'm not sure what I'll do tomorrow. Level 1 is much easier now, after a full week! My endurance has gone up, and even if I'm grunting through some of the moves, I'm sticking it out! I want to quit SO bad, but I'm finding myself pushing harder. I'm really looking forward to seeing the results of this workout at the end. I really think that 30-Day Shred has definitely attributed to this bigger number this week. I hope it continues, though I'm not expecting a 5 pound loss every week. I wish I had taken measurements before starting. That's something I really want to do this week.
This week my eating was pretty good! I've been staying at or just below goal - which, MyFitnessPal figures your exercise calories into you daily total. Sometimes I eat some of my extra calories, but I try to avoid that. I want to maximize my weight loss as much as possible. This was my second week of using MyFitnessPal, and I'm still loving it. It makes things pretty easy. I logged my food all weekend, and was pretty good this weekend. It's so hard to be good on the weekends! That's typical "lazy" time, but with changing my weigh-in date, it really has been keeping my eating in check. I find myself making better choices. Telling myself no - unless I'm really hungry. It's working! :)
Fat girl - you're going DOWN! :)
