This whole weight loss and lifestyle change thing! It has been four weeks since I have started working out with a trainer and I am entering my third week of eating good.....making better choices and not any fast food. I have chick fil a but I only have a grilled chicken sandwich and no fries and definitely not their yummy best in the world EVER sweet tea!!!!! I miss their sweet tea!!!!
I have lost two inches in the places that matter and 5lbs. Not as many pounds as I would like but I'll take it!
I have been working out with a trainer doing yoga and strength training and then cardio the other three to four days a week. I take one day off of any exercises at all! I really don't give myself a "eat anything I want day" yet as I have to much weight to loose. I do allow myself some calories to have a cookie or an ice cream. I'm still learning what healthier snack choices are. I still drink a diet DP in the morning to keep from getting a headache and sometimes one in the evening but other than that it's water! When I don't drink water I feel like I don't loose. I just feel better when I have had a lot of water for the day!
I have tried jogging and do pretty well at it and actually like it.....I don't exactly love it while I am doing it but I LOVE how I feel after my run is over! I have developed horrible shin splints though and they are SO painful....I PRAY that somehow they get better and I can actually become a runner. I am going to a chiropractor soon to have them checked. My biggest fear is that they are going to tell me to rest and no more working out for a while! I pray to God that doesn't happen!
I'm not going to lie and say this is not the hardest thing I have ever done. It's frustrating but also can be fun and rewarding. I want to reach my goal weight like tomorrow! I know that's not realistic......two pounds a week is a healthy weight loss.
I have 40 lbs to loose and when I reach that goal I will post all my measurements and starting weight!
I will check in again in 4 weeks with more progress!
