Week 15

Howdy, howdy!

I'm freshly showered after a good kickboxing workout =)  Yes!

I have two weigh ins to report.  The challenge I'm participating in on fatsecret recommends weighing daily, which normally I wouldn't do, but I thought I'd give it a shot to see if it would be motivating or discouraging.

Monday's weight:  263  - Down 1 lb!  Go me!
Today's weight:  261.5 - Down another 1.5! 

I anticipate to see some fluctuation the next couple of days, so I will do my best not to get discouraged by it.

I figured out it's Week 14

I'm very proud of myself.  I have worked out 4 1/2 times this week!  The half was tonight.  I tried really hard to keep up with Denise Austin, but it was just too dancey and I was afraid I'd trip over myself, hit my head on a chair, and my husband would come home to find me unconscious in a sports bra.  I know he's my husband and all, but I really don't care for ANYONE to see me in a sports bra. 

I can't do workouts that have a lot of dance-type moves, or if they change moves too quickly.  I spent the rest of my workout time searching for videos for next time.  Youtube is awesome, I just have to say.

I got on the fatsecret.com bandwagon... my sister talked it up pretty well enough to convince me to give it a try.  I joined a challenge that starts Sunday.  Nothing tricky about the challenge, just your basic "log your calories, workout, drink water" kind of thing.  If I remember correctly, it's a 4 week challenge and the goal is to lose 5%, but that's 13lbs for me and that's a bit lofty for 4 weeks for me (I normally wouldn't aim for more than 8 in that time frame).  It would be nice, but I won't kick myself if I don't make it.

I'm really hoping that Weeks 15-18 finally show some improvement!

No yoga tomorrow.  Vacation for the instructors.  Bummer. =P

I don't even know what week it is anymore...

I'm alive!

I hope I'm not jinxing myself, but I think I've finally punched a hole in my mental block.  I started going to a yoga class with my sister on Saturdays and it's just blown me away.  I LOVE it.  And it's made me really want to be in better shape so I can do better in my practices.  The past 2 weeks, I've gotten in at least 2 workouts during the week.  Sometimes yoga, sometimes other stuff.  I found a ton of workout videos on youtube, so I won't be bored any time soon. 

I haven't really lost any weight, but it's changing - if that makes sense.  The scale isn't budging, but I've been wearing shirts that were too tight on me not too long ago.  My husband has told me I look like I've lost some weight.  I feel A LOT better.

I'm going to hit that 37 lbs.  Watch out!

Weigh in for this week:  264 (down 1 lb from last weigh in on here)
