Last week's weight: 157.8 lbs.
This week's weight: 156.6 lbs.
I lost 1.2 lbs. this week! Take a look.
Ok, so here's the part where I have to admit that some of you guys were right. (cough, cough, Ileana.) Experimenting with food intake does me good.
Cutting down on the whole grains & dairy has helped.
Ileana, I've learned the hard way to never say never. As I'm sure you have as well. For the simple reason that you just don't know what will happen in the future.
So right now, I can't say "I'll NEVER give up eating _____" because I simply don't know that I never will. A lot of things can happen. I might decide to go to Paleo. I might develop a gluten/lactose intolerance. I might decide a lot of things. You just never freaking know.
Look, there was a time when I said adamantly, "I'll never eat broccoli. I'll never eat salad." And guess what? Guess what foods have become staples in my nutrition/food intake now?
Yup. And Ileana, I gotta admit - I kinda do like this whole experimenting food thing. Ok?? :-)
Oh, and apparently, I was a little too quick to voice my dislike for Bootcamp. I took some quick measurements this morning before I left to start my day and compared them to 3 weeks ago. I've lost an inch around my waist, a half inch where I have what I call my "the ring around my belly," and another half inch around my hips.
Yeah. So there's that. Maybe, just maybe, this shit is working. I was losing inches even when I was in my self-proclaimed plateau that was NOT a freaking plateau because I was still losing weight. Just not the amount I wanted to lose. ;-)
Today was non stop from the second I got up to go to WI. Went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, then to WI, then back home to get in a quick 45 minute workout, shower, change, eat breakfast to feed my stomachs, then pick up my Mom so we could go to my brother's house.
Quick warm up of 17 minutes on the inclined treadmill (it had been a while since that thing had been used), then The Firm Power Sculpt Workout with Allie del Rio. I added in a quick 10 minutes of 3 circuits: skaters, ass to grass squats, and alternating leg dips. 386 calories burned.
It had been a while since I had seen my bro, SIL & the kids. It was great seeing them. My 14 month old nephew is getting so big! He's a big mush, so freaking cute. And my niece - freaking love that kid. My SIL commented to me that I was shrinking. I appreciated that, it was nice hearing.
And yes, I realize it validates everything that everyone was saying, and I just didn't want to believe nor accept. Sigh.
I really, REALLY don't like this whole admitting
Anywho, my brother speaks to my niece only in Spanish, my SIL is Russian so she speaks to her in Russian, and my niece has no problem transitioning to English at any time. I freaking love that. She can speak 3 languages easily, and has no problem speaking English with her little friends when she goes to preschool. :-)
On tap for this week: more food experimenting, and more practicing my patience.
Onward & downward.
I so fucking got this.
