So this was week two or technically week one since I didn't start until this past week! I think I did a pretty good job this week, and my friend told me she can see in my face it looks like I lost weight! I worked out every day this week except Saturday and Sunday because, as my one of my friends put it "those are days to recover from the night before!" I made it a goal to eat healthy, and I think I did pretty well. I made it a point to incorporate more fresh fruit into my diet, and was very conscious of what I was eating. I for the most part avoided sweets, except for one night which I call my "off night." Wednesday night we had a "Boo Boys Boo party"... basically we just had a lot of junk food that had cute names that basically said eff boys in not so many words! I ate a lot more junk food than I should have, but that was my one slip up for the week. Unless you count all the alcohol I had this weekend- my resolution to only drink light beer was a good one, but I failed to consider all the other types of drinks I tend to consume... yummy, fruity one's that probably have 1,000 calories each. So, I'll have to watch my intake of those & I suppose stick to gold 'ole light beer... yum (not). My workouts were all really good this week... I joined the Y like I said I would, and I'm really happy with my decision to do that. Our fitness center at school is really small, and always crammed with athletes, and there's something about working out next to athletes that makes you want to run as far away from the gym as possible and count that as your work out! So the Y is a much better fit for me! I started out just doing the treadmill for Cardio, but by the end of the week I decided to switch it up & try different machines... which seriously kicked my ass! Why is everything else so much harder than the treadmill!? Weird! I tried to get in some weights, too, but I didn't do it everyday. Alright... moment of truth. Did I lose any weight!? Here's the thing... I don't have a scale, so I only weigh myself at the gym, usually after my workouts in case the number is lower after burning some calories! Well, the Y has 2 scales (1 I call the "dr.'s office scale" where you have to balance it & everything, then a digital one). We all know digital ones can sometimes be off (or am i making that up?!), so I decided to weigh myself on both... everytime. So at the beginning of the week, according to the "Dr.'s office scale" I weighed 174 (I think), but according to the digital scale I weighed 170. Today I weighed 169 on both scales... so I'm going to go out on a limb (maybe) and go with the "Dr.'s office scale" for both weights. Which means... I lost 5 lbs this week!! If this is in fact true (assuming I remember correctly what the scale said at the beginning of the week, and assuming I did my math correctly on the scale today), I met my goal for the week, plus 2 lbs! I'm really proud of myself for sticking with my workouts, and eating healthy! It's so hard to say "no" to fast food, and all the sweets that pop up occasionally, but I did it (for the most part) and I dragged my butt to the gym & worked out hard, and you know what!? It felt really good! :) Here's what the digital scale read today:So, I'm hoping I didn't make up the fact that I lost weight, and that the "Dr.'s office scale" really did say 174 at the beginning of the week... I know it said more than the digital one, so I'm trusting it! I think I'll stick to one scale this week... Goals for this week:
- Work out harder, and longer
- more weights- I didn't always do this, and I want to lose weight, but get toned, too, so I need to do some weight lifting as well as cardio.
- Stay away from the junk food... it's so hard! Stupid valentine's day- now it's everywhere!
- More water!
- Watch the fruity drink intake this weekend (probably good for more reasons than 1 if you know what I mean!)
