16 days of the 30 Day Shred are officially completed! I am over halfway there. What a great feeling! I’m starting to get a little bored with level 2. Four more days of that and then I will attempt level 3 for the last 10 days. I love how this workout makes me feel. It works every part of my body and I feel so relaxed when I am done.
Today was WI at work. I lost .6 according to the inaccurate work scale. I’ll take it though, it’s better than a gain! The winner so far has lost over 7% of their body weight. For me to do that I would have had to have lost 17 lbs. in the past 3 weeks. I’d like to know how this person is losing weight so quickly. But I’m not letting it bother me because I know what I’m doing.
I am getting a little discouraged about not seeing the scale moving down. It’s like I lose .2 everyday. I used to lose over a lb. once in a while. Tomorrow is my official weigh in, so we’ll see how that goes. I try not to worry about it too much because I can see big changes in my body. Maybe I am gaining muscle with all of this working out. But I still want to lose weight and I SHOULD be losing weight. After all, I have a lot of weight to lose!
I’ve been pretty snacky lately for some reason. Maybe I need to try some new foods to keep myself satisfied. Yesterday, I cut up about 1/4 of a red pepper and dipped the strips in hummus. Understand that I hate peppers. I have never been able to eat them. So I was attempting something new. I didn’t mind it, but they definitely needed the hummus! lol. But something about that snack left me feeling satisfied. I didn’t want to eat anything else for the rest of the afternoon.
I got off work early today to come home and write a 9 page paper that my professor threw on us, DUE FRIDAY! UGH! So I’m letting myself take it easy for a little while. I am cooking a chicken breast for lunch, YUM! After lunch, I’ll get right to the paper. It is absolutely gorgeous outside today. There’s a blue sky and the sun is out. Too bad it’s still only 20 degrees!
