I dreaded this Weigh In. I had a feeling I wasn’t going to make my weekly goal for the first time in 16 weeks – and I didn’t. I was 0.8 lbs away from making my goal.
On the plus side, though, my booty and legs freaking hurt!! I thought I did not get a good workout yesterday, but apparently, I did!
Today I choose to focus on my progress:
1.) I am able to run on the elliptical for 40 min or more without feeling like I’m dying. When I started I could barely run for 3 min. Yes, that was really 3 min.
2.) I have lost 32.2 lbs in 16 weeks!
3.) I have dropped 2 pant sizes!!
4.) My self esteem has sky rocketed.
5.) I have stuck with it and made it harder when I feel like it has become easy!
So, to break through this little set back I am going to change things up a bit. I’m going to keep it low carb, but I’m going to restrict myself to 35 or less net carbs a day and cut out the Atkins bars (which really sucks because I just bought 5 boxes). I am wondering if the sugar alcohols are affecting my weight loss…I only have one bar a day, but I could easily replace that with another “dessert”.
I’m also going to switch up my workout. More strength training with cardio. If I feel like I didn’t get a good workout on DVD days, I’ll run on the elliptical for 20 min. A second workout never hurt anybody!
