I know my title sounds like I gained a bunch of weight, but I didn't! I did gain another .4 bring my total gain for the past two weeks to a meager 2 lbs. I feel this is not bad considering how off track I had been! I wasn't sure what todays weigh in would bring either. I was a little nervous, but I still went. I have not been able to quit no matter what I have done.
The second half of my title refers to my exercising this week. I have been going to the park every day. I know it's only been three days, but that is a huge improvement over the past month. Also I have taken a bike ride after work on Monday and Wednesday! In addition, I did my ab workout on Monday and will do again when I get off of here and did the butt workout yesterday. I am thinking I should pick up a couple of 5 or 10 lb weights and do the arm workout as well. Right now I just follow along through the set once and I am sore. They all consist of 10 exercises for 30 seconds. By the end I am pooped! I hope to work out to multiple times through the sets! As of right now though I am just happy getting through them once and being able to move the next day. They really do work me over!
My eating has been good. I have been tracking at work well and keeping that in my planer so it is easy to see the info. While at home I have ate well and not splurged really. I have found a new favorite dessert and look forward to trying another variation. Right now I just cut up a banana, drizzle it with sugar free chocolate syrup, cut up strawberries, sprinkle with a little sugar and top with a drizzle of the sugar free chocolate syrup, then top with whip cream! It tastes like a banana split only healthy! :) I am going to try and make another dessert that will be similar but different :) I will share how that goes as well :) Loving that the fruits seem to be getting better every time I buy them :) Makes it so much easier to stay on track!
Thanks to my success so far this week I feel much better about myself. I hope to keep it up and continue my weigh loss journey! Thank you to all my friends and family for the support! I really could not do this without you as well. I know it has to come from within me, but without you to listen and lend a helping hand I don't think I could do this as successfully.
