So here I am…a week into my “I’m tired of being chunky” mission. I thought it would be a good idea if I chronicled my journey for everyone. Hopefully this keeps me a bit more accountable. If I don’t workout I fully expect you all to light up the torches and storm my blog like a village lynch mob after Frankenstein. Seriously. You better.
My goal this week was to workout 4 times since it was my first week back in the game. I did accomplish this goal so I feel pretty good about that. As you can see I am currently still breathing, so the workouts haven’t killed me….yet. I tried not to push myself too hard this first week because I tend to aggravate my back easily in the beginning of a workout routine. I sound like such an old lady when I say that. *sigh* However, I prefer not to walk hunched over for several days so I didn’t strain myself.
My eating though, is another problem entirely. I have been eating HORRIBLY. I blame it on the fact that we were still getting rid of holiday goodness. But in reality it’s just because I have zero willpower. ZERO. I’m going to try harder this coming week and see if I can get that under control. I’ve bought some yogurt and fruit to hopefully replace the sugar and sweets. I have a serious sweet tooth. It has a mind of its own. It blocks out all mental capacity regarding calorie intake and fat and blah blah blah..all I know is that if I don’t have something sweet after dinner I may knock someone’s head clean off.
My goal for next week is to workout 5 days…and 1 of those days do a weight training workout instead of, or in addition to, my cardio. I also want to up my workouts from 30 min to 40 min or longer for the cardio ones at least. I need to buy a cage for one of my cats because she doesn’t seem to understand that workout time isn’t a time to be running at my feet at full speed. Can’t really get my sweat on when I’m stopping every couple of minutes to boot her from the room. Ok, I’m kidding. No I’m not.
Starting Weight -162.3

YAY that’s down 4.4 lbs! I’m aware it’s probably water weight..but don’t ruin it for me okay? lol. Maybe my higher metabolism from a few months ago isn’t completely gone like I was afraid it was.Let’s hope next week sees another drop!
