And so the saga continues.
I'm a little ambivalent about this week's loss - 1.2 pounds. Oh yeah, I'm totally counting fractions of pounds. That's how I roll.
Sure, 1.2 pounds is SOMETHING. I just keep going back to the days when I was younger and would do Weight Watchers and drop five or ten pounds first thing like it was nothing.
My body, it betrays me. It hangs onto each calorie and fat gram and carbo-freakin'-hydrate like I'm heading into some kind of major famine. Well, I give it permission to leave. Someone else can have it. Someone who needs it. Like Lindsay Lohan. Or those skinny beyotches on the new 90210 (don't you just miss Brenda and Kelly and their attainable bodies? Not Donna. She was a freak show)? Can I donate my back rolls and muffin top and count it as a tax write off? Just asking.
This past week I was a little more successful with food - both portion size and what I'm eating. Tofu and broccoli anyone? And oatmeal. And more broccoli.
Exercise is getting there. I was able to get in some great walks this week, the weather was fabulous for two whole days. And I've been hopping on the Wii Fit, even though it tells me I'm overweight (duh) and just to prove a point, makes my Mii have a MUFFIN TOP. The hula hoop is killer, and G likes watching me do the boxing - he laughs and laughs.
I did the strength exercises yesterday, and I'm sore. You know you're out of shape when the Wii Fit makes you struggle to sit up in bed.
Today I start the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred Challenge with the Sisterhood. It'll actually be a 28 day shred, as Amazon just delivered my DVD last night. I'm excited to try it, a little nervous as it sounds killer. I didn't realize I needed hand weights, so I'm going to have to be creative and use soup cans or my cats as the weights until I can make it to Targhay.
So that's me.
Starting Weight: 182
Week 2 Weight: 179.8
If there is one major positive for me, I've broken out of the 180's where I've been stuck since two weeks after giving birth.
I'm going to shred now. I will keep the phone close by in case I need someone to come pick me up off of the floor.
