Two weeks have passed and as promised I have my update. (Click here to read my original post.) I must admit that working out twice a week was a bit harder than I thought, but manged to stay on track on the healthy eating, for the most part. Anyway, here is how my first two weeks went…
I only made it to the “gym” once. However, I did go to two classes in one day which was a little over 2 hours of work out time. I did (my fave) Kettlebell and (my second fave) dance. So, I feel like it was a good week. Now as far as the eating goes, ehhhh….I told myself I would have one meal of whatever I wanted, well that turned into like 3. But I am not too hard on myself. I messed up, but just moved on from it.
The second week seemed a little easier when it came to eating healthy. I made very good decisions even while eating out. Kept my snacks healthy, and stopped drinking soda. Of course, I did treat myself to a chocolate and sushi. Because, its sushi! You can’t just say no to sushi. I actually managed to make it to two days of working out. Day one was Kettlebell and Dance, day two was dance only.
For it being the first two weeks I must say I am proud of myself. It is not always easy, and I constantly have to remind myself why I am doing this and what my goal is. A few days ago I fit into my LBD and got a compliment on my arms, both of these things felt great and only motivate me to keep going. I decided I will be sharing with you guys what I actually weigh and will start to do measurements as well. Because if I were on the other side I’d be dying to know. (Yes I can be nosy) I will also be doing a before and after picture…which I will share once I get to the “after”.
My starting weight: 161.8lbs
My current weight: 158.6lbs
Guys, that is a 3.2lbs loss! Yeyuh! Alright, well my weight is officially out on the internets for everyone to see and judge. Yikes!
I was looking thru old pictures to find some inspiration and keep me motivated thru all this, and came across this one. It was the summer before I got pregnant, 2014. Not to toot my own horn, but toot toot! I was looking good! I had forgotten how awesome it feels to be in control. Yes, I am the only one in control of my health and fitness. Nobody else is. I make that decision to have iced tea over soda, or steamed broccoli over fries. Back then I remember being so disciplined and focused on my goal. I had a lot more time to dedicate to working out, now as a mom I do not, but that does not mean I will not get any results. It might take a little longer, but I will get there.
Hope you guys are keeping up with whatever goals you have and be sure to check back in a couple of weeks for my second update.
