So, in my mind, this week has gone pretty well. I've stuck to the good food, completely avoided all soda and made water my new best friend. I avoided the sweets (except for a lemon bar last night, which I baked all by myself! Yum.), stuck to portion sizes and exercised. I won't lie though, I was a bit worried about stepping on the scale today because I lost a couple days in a row of going to the gym because of my work day.
Just a note about my work day. At my first job, I work 8am-5:45pm. My second job is 6:15pm-12am. So on the days that I work both, I am gone from my house for 17 hours. That only leaves me 7 hours, part of which I spend getting up and going to bed. So, I know some of you would say, well why don't I sacrifice an hour of sleep? The reason I don't is because I have this schedule at least 3 days out of the work week. I need the sleep, and maintaining a proper sleep schedule is part of my attempts to become healthier. Besides, I do go for long walks with the baby on the days that I do work, to get some form of exercise into my day.
So, my apologies for digressing. I started two weeks ago at 135 lbs. Last week I weighed in at 132.8 lbs. As of my weigh in this morning, I am 130.0 lbs. Honestly, this number surprised me. I did not expect to drop 2.8 lbs this week, maybe 1-2, but guess what, surprised or not, I still feel good!
A few reminders. Take the poll on the right! Tell me what your favorite cardio machine is, I want to know. Thanks. Also, check out my most recent Featured Author post, her books are definitely a worthwhile read. Look out for a post later today about a Bob Harper fat-blasting workout. Lastly, I just added an About Me page, just to give you all some back ground on the main reason I am trying to get fit, so take a look!
Have a wonderful day!
