I exercised hard this week, and it paid off. This morning I stepped on the scale and didn't feel the urgent need to hurl it out of the window.
I'm down. Another 1.3 pounds. Happy dance!
Starting Weight: 178.8
Last Week's Weight: 176.8
This Week's Weight: 175.5
As usual, I didn't make the BEST food choices this week. There was a hamburger (or two). Some red wine. A piece of chocolate cake. Maybe a smidgen of ice cream.
So, perhaps I'm lucky this week. But I have to say, it was no where like the binging that went on last week. I managed a little moderation.
And the Wii Active and C25K have helped me out of my exercise doldrums. I like the Wii Fit, but most of the time I don't feel like I've had a good workout afterwards - but with the Active, I'm sweating, I'm sore. It's definitely challenging. Don't even get me started on the in line skating. Squat, jump, squat, jump! Owie.
One last thing, I mentioned a few weeks back I was reading Master Your Metabolism (Jillian Michaels). Well, I finished. I keep asking myself, is the diet do-able? While I am drawn to the idea of clean eating, I'm not totally excited about doing the two week plan by myself. Because I know my husband will not put up with a steady diet of quinoa, spinach and organic chicken.
There is a list in the back of the book with a list of groceries to eat two weeks on the plan. I'm in serious contemplation. All I know is, I need to get my exercise in a good place before I attempt to survive on the 1400 or so calories recommended for someone my size to lose weight. Starvation!! Plus, the kinds of foods necessary are not cheap - eating all organic is pricey. Seriously.
So, that one's on the table for the moment. Anyone tried it?
