This is the week I've been looking forward to, I think...
"They" say it takes about six weeks until you start to see results from exercise. If you know me at all, then you know I've been jumping on the scales every morning before I get dressed. Who can wait six whole weeks? I've only lost a couple pounds. Yes, muscle weighs more then fat and I'm clinging to that!!! BUT I NEED to drop some major poundage here. My goal is to loose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday and it's coming up soon! Can you loose 40 pounds in a little over a month? Hmmmm
So yesterday I got out the tape measure to see if I at least lost some inches. My hubby and BFF have told me they see a difference, but they're my biggest cheerleaders and I think they are just helping me not get discouraged.
This is what my week looks like at the gym -
Mon. - 5am to 6ish, no less then an hour
Tues. - 6:30am to 8am
Wed. - 6:30am to 8am
Thur. - 6:30am to 8am
Fri. - 5am to 6ish
Sat. & Sun. something outside and active with my kids.
I think due to my lack of weight loss I will add my Power90 DVD a couple nights a week to see if that helps.
So my results are -
3 pounds lost. 14 inches total loss from all over, with the biggest loss being 6 inches from my upper belly. (I measured everything!)
I am THRILLED with those results, but I don't really see it when I look in the mirror or feel it with the way my clothes fit. I'm really glad I wrote my measurements down before I started or I'd be completely discouraged by now. At least this is enough to keep me going.
I'm also going to start writing down what I eat, it's probably more then I think. In fact I know it's a lot more then I think.
Summer is coming and I'd like to wear a bathing suit instead of a tank top and shorts! And I'd like to look good in my shorts that I wear OUT of the pool.
How are YOU doing? Any tips for me?
