I'm cheating and typing up most of this Thursday night, but won't post until I have my actual numbers from WI in the morning. Also planning to start adding photos so I can better track what the little bit of sculpting/toning I've added is doing- if anything. Little nervous about putting all my flab out there for viewing, but I've seen a lot of before/after pictures that were inspirational enough to make me suck it up.
1. Goal 1: Seeing 199 on the scale before 2011. I lost 2 lbs this week, for a total of 33.4 lbs lost. Stayed under 1200 calories both days after starting the DDD Challenge, over 150 oz of water those 2 days, and have worked out all week. Am I a little bummed? Yes, but not because I don't appreciate seeing the loss. Bummed because if I had NOT made such bad choices last week and gained 2, my scale would have said 214.6 instead of 216.6 for the second time this month. I do not enjoy doing the same job twice, you know? My fault, I'm done complaining about it now.
2. Goal 2: Trying one new healthy recipe a week. I don't mean to sound cocky, but I think I redeemed myself after last week! We made: brownies (that got tossed), apple pumpkin bread (also tossed), general tso's chicken (tossed), penne alla vodka (finally an edible one!), and crunchy mac n' cheese (yum). All were from the new cookbooks I received last week. I'll post the recipes for the edible ones this weekend.
3. Goal 3: Working out 3 times a week. I tallied it all up, and the totals were- 2 hours, 45 min in the gym; 1 hour 15 min Zumba; two 20 minute walks during lunch at work; and 2 quick 15 minute morning workouts with hand weights and the exercise ball. My arms, thighs, abs, and ass hurt. Maybe I'm a masochist..
4. Oh yes, there's a 4th being added this week! I'm adding morning workouts at least 4 days a week before work. I think it's crucial to getting your metabolism going, so I'm going to make that happen.
I hope everyone had a super successful week! I'll be checking around later today!
Oh yeah.. And now for those pictures:
