So I have neglected to post the past few days. Largely due to the fact that I did horribly. Trying to find time to eat while I’m at work is really difficult. So that’s my challenge this coming week. But I have to say, I went to the Cheesecake Factory before it was time for my treat meal and have a very intense struggle, and shooing the waiter away three time, I finally decided I needed to stay on track and eat healthy. Grilled Salmon with succotash and carrots. I’m not the best at cooking fish so I decided to get something someone else does better. The Cheesecake Factory gives you HUGE portions too so I made sure to divide it in half and take the leftovers for another meal later. I’m glad I did because I didn’t have to unbutton my pants or feel like a bloated cow when I left.
I also had my fitness appointment on friday at the YMCA. They showed my how to use the equipment and the program that they offer. Its called fitlinx. It tracks your progress overall, and on each individual piece of equipment. It will beep at you when you’re going too fast, or when you drop the weight during your repetitions; kind of keeps your accountable during your workout. I love it! I’m nervous to stray from the program Jackie has outlined, but my goals is to translate those exercises she has to the gym equipment. Otherwise I’m paying for this membership for just 20 minutes of cardio and a set of free weights.
On a happier note, my treat meals are this weekend! Which I was a bit bad yesterday so I think I’m gonna keep it to one day this weekend. Especially since I was bad this week. I didn’t earn my treat meals! But yesterday I had already planned afternoon tea with friends so I indulged in a few mini treats, and didn’t have breakfast, lunch, or snacks. Just afternoon tea and dinner. ….Which was at Romano’s Macaroni Grill. =/ Terrible! I know! I didn’t scarf it all down in two minutes like a cave woman so that’s progress. I don’t want to be too hard on myself either since this is just the first week (feels like a lifetime). But lets get to the good stuff.
Keeping in mind that I was extremely bad this week….ITS TIME FOR MY WEIGH IN!!!!!!!
I lost 3 pounds and a total of 1.5 inches
You can look at “measurements” to see the progression. I’m really upset with myself that I mis-measured my inner thighs. Somehow I wrote down 38″, which is not right. 😦 So we’ll start tracking from this week instead. However I am EXTREMELY pleased to see a whole inch off of my belly. That’s one inch closer to showing those abs I have hidden in there somewhere. 😉
Bring on week 2!
