So, it’s been three weeks since I first ‘went public’ with my goal of getting healthy again and getting rid of the Euroweight that I’ve gained over the last six years. To be honest, I was a bit frustrated this week because the scale tells me I’ve lost about 3lbs. The last time I lost weight (two years ago) doing pretty much the same thing, I lost 8lbs in the same period. But, as my sister reminded me, I’m not doing this to reach a number on the scale, I’m trying to change my lifestyle. Here’s what I’ve been doing:
– 60 minutes of cardio 4-5 x per week (Spinning, running and Zumba) + push-ups and crunches every morning
– Eliminating alcohol, processed foods, sugar, etc from my diet (with the exception of my birthday)
I wore the same clothes today as I did when I first posted a photo three weeks ago. I’m fairly certain I can see a difference:
…encouraging actually. I think this is a better way of judging results. I have a habit of weighing myself every other day, and I know that a lot of you probably think that’s foolish, but it helps me to keep on track.
