So, here I am...two weeks back into watching what I eat, exercising, being obsessed with all things healthy.
My new start weight was 182.4 (after taking 6 months off)
Well, I weigh in tomorrow morning
But, how do I feel??? That's what I wanted to talk about today.
Have I had cravings?
Have I been retaining water?
Have I been working out?
At first, not really...I was waiting for my Weider Total Body home gym to arrive...even though my treadmill was catching dust...I waited.
Out of the last 10 days, I have worked out for 8 of them.
Have I been hungry?
YES!!!!!! But usually only when I'm too busy to realize what time it is, or if I had too many calories so I had to have a meal replacement shake.
I am the H20 champ!
Calories, Calories, Calories...
I adjusted the time I wanted to lose weight in so week one I was 1500 - 1800 and week two I was 1200 - 1500. Harder. Yes, harder. I feel like I run out of calories so much quicker...I always aim for the lower number and will end up somewhere in the middle.
Extremely. I am on SparkPeople a lot. I have been looking at before and after stories on line...pictures...I print them...I look at them while I work out....(I made some posters for my outdoor gym with motivational phrases and pictures).
I bought an 8 1/2 x 10 planner to use for additional motivation (printed goal outfits and glued them in there...pictures of myself with my progress...motivational phrases...etc). I will also write how I feel, how I did...something similar to this blog entry. :) I will not use it for a food journal...more of a summary. I can easily run reports on Spark and then write in the info.
Hell yes!! I am so proud of what I've done these first two weeks. I jogged a mile!!! TWICE!!!! AAAAAHHHHH!!!!! I went over my calorie limit ONCE! I've been focused, active, proactive, and encouraging to myself even when I wasn't "feeling" it.
That is how my two weeks went. And no matter what that scale says tomorrow I am proud of what I have accomplished in this time. My eating habits have changed. My activity level has changed. And as I'm typing this my arm muscles are sore...such sweet pain!! I even see some muscle!!! I loves me some Muscle!!!
I hope your two weeks went just as well as mine...If not, there are two more coming up!!!
