First, I am down a little more weight to 155.4! THis is my lowest since last summer! Its been coming off in 0.4-0.2 lb increments almost every day this week. I have been staying within my alloted calories for the day (except Monday) but not eating as super clean as I would like. Im also on schedule with my duathalon training this week! I am a little concerned about my 15 min bike ride and transition to 60 min run scheduled for Sunday. I can do it though!
I tried my new hemp protein shake this morning. Just felt like having a fruit smoothie with eggs for breakfast. It was good! I mixed hemp protein powder with water because I am cutting out milk, a banana and other mixed fruit, and chia seeds. Delicious.
Getting my hair done this afternoon, a wedding reception tomorrow and Monday I leave for vacation at Lake Tahoe….for a whole week! Joy! CANNOT WAIT!!
Already had a 2lb loss register on the scale yesterday!! For a total of 2.4 lbs lost this week. Good motivation and momentum going into my camping trip this weekend. Bringing my running gear!
Woot! So excited! I am down to 156.6 lbs. Need to update my “About me”.
*does happy dance*
Weighed myself today since it is my normal THursday weigh in….at least thats what I have been doing hte past few weeks. I am down 0.4lbs this week!!! I will take it, no matter how small the progress! So now I am 159 even. And that is with taking 2 rest days in a row and eating not so clean for 2 days.
My goal for the next few days/week is to eat clean except for some treats on Saturday (dessert) at my friend’s baby shower. And hopefully resume upper body work!
Went to the group strength training class at the gym and I never go at this time so I had no idea what to expect from the instructor. Can I just say that the workout wasn’t hard enough! It feels good in a way (better fitness!) but I wanted to work harder so I was doing all the “more challenging” versions and it still wasn’t a hard enough workout. I did burn 338 calories though. I had to come home and do more of a workout. I won’t be going back to that class at least not with that instructor.
…does happy dance…Im back in the 150s!!
I weighed myself this am on a whim and I am down 0.8lbs since yesterday. I had a 1lb loss yesterday for a total of 1.8 lbs this week. SO EXCITED! This proves I can do it without paying for an expensive trainer…so motivating! Here’s to momentum!
Off to Bikram yoga this morning to help loosen up this dang hip! And possibly getting in my run later but its supposed to be almost 100 degrees today. HOT!
The scale hasn’t budged much. But I got my first compliment yesterday at a BBQ. One of my friends who I tried to go to bikram with about a month and a half ago (and haven’t seen her since then) said I was looking thinner and like I was losing weight again. I was wearing skinny jeans that i haven’t worn because they were too tight. But when I wore then last night, no muffin top! Yay! Small incident but feels good. She also coupled that with a friendly “ugh hate you for that” because she feels like she can never lose weight. She always starts programs, gets a week or so into it and stops due to life getting in the way. I wish it wouldn’t happen because we could workout together!
