Can you believe that 2 months of 2010 have passed already. CRAZY I tell ya!!
I am doing pretty well. This process is HARD to say the least. Typically very rewarding as I have said before b/c you often see changes in your body pretty frequently. Although, February was not one of those months for me. My weight went down about 3 pounds and my inches budged but not as much as I had hoped.
Of course you can only do so much and you cannot help how your body responds to what you are doing. As of last week I started a new menu that is carb cylcing and 3 days a week I eat 1500 cals, 3 days a week I eat 1200 cals and 1 day I eat a whopping 2000 calories in which I get to eat lots of oatmeal, brown rice and a sweet potato on that day in addition to lean meats and green veggies. So I know my body is adjusting to that. Also, I have gone up in my weights that I lift. Really trying to push the envelope with the weights since that is when you truly see the changes in your muscles. I have been working out 2 days a week at the gym with my husband as of last week and that really helps b/c he can spot me and help me along with a few lifts when my muscles get tired. As of Saturday I started doing cardio 7 days a week. I am 3/3 this week working out Saturday, Sunday and Monday so "YEA", I am off to a great start with that. I had to step it up to get this stubborn fat off b/c it is very comfortable right now it seems.
Oh and I continue to pass up on EVERY SINGLE MORSEL of food that is NOT on my plan. No licking of fingers or anything. My husband desperately wanted pizza last night and of course this is my choice to do this and I do not want others around me to feel like they have to eat chicken and aspargus constantly and he has not had pizza since the end of December so I said go ahead and order one for you and the girls but it has to be a small so you won't eat the entire medium pizza and there won't be any leftovers. He ordered it and picked it up and it totally hit the spot for him and the girls love pizza of course. I sat there and happily ate my chicken and aspargus and thought about how AWESOME I AM GOING TO LOOK ON STAGE IN A BIKINI. HA!
Speaking of the husband he has lost 10 pounds (some that he regained from last fall when he lost some) and is back on his plan as of this morning after having his pizza last night and is meeting me at the gym weekly now and even went to the gym today by himself. GO HUSBAND!!!
Here are some progress pics taken from today of me at 136.4 as of this morning. I am in my bra/panties and my sexy stripper heels. WOOT!
