I was scared to go on my scale this morning. Why? It could be because of
*my mom's birthday dinner last Tuesday
*late night dinner after Krav Maga class on Wednesday
*Saturday night's "date night" extravaganza with a delicious apple tart and caramel drizzled vanilla ice cream
The outcome? 2 pounds lost! Woohoo! I was shocked. I'm so happy. I can even admit I feel "lighter" somehow. I worked out 6 out of 7 days last week!
Monday: cardio bootcamp 1 hr.
Tuesday: free weights for 1 hr.
Wednesday: Krav Maga 1 hr. and free weights 1 hr.
Thursday: body sculpt 1 hr.
Friday: Bosu 1 hr.
Saturday: 30 min. treadmill and 30 min. elliptical
I'm enjoying working out. I even wake up excited to see how much I can push myself and "feel" it come off as I work out. I hope this feeling stays with me throughout this journey. I just purchased Jillian Michaels' 3 set DVD yesterday. I can't wait to get them in the mail because I know they're gonna kick my butt. This blog has really helped me stay accountable. One of the best parts is... it's FREE! I did some serious thinking and praying lately. I've changed my goal weight to 120 pounds. Why the change? I checked my BMI, and it would be at a healthier (not on the cusp) range if I lost an extra five pounds. I know it'll be a harder challenge, but I think I'm up to it. I also checked my fat ratio. At 163 pounds, it was at 50%. That's right. I double and triple checked. It's crazy. Today? It's 42% . It's still bad, but I lost 8% body fat in two weeks. That's quite an accomplishment for me. At 163 pounds, I was considered obese. I never knew that. I've now lost 7 pounds. I'm now under the "overweight" range. I can't look back anymore. I have my husband and my twins to look forward to every day. You can do it too.
What kinds of workouts do you do? How do you stay motivated?
Have a happy and healthy day!
