Well, in week one I started off needing to loose 11 pounds to get me back down to where I was when my first challenge ended. Yikes!
I began doing the same things I did last time. I figure they worked before, why not use the same tools again?
Week one was great. Getting back into exercising wasn't easy, but I found that I still loved it. I decided that instead of exercising after dinner, I tried exercising right when I got home from work; 5pm...20 minutes later I was done and my evening was over.
I was only shooting for about 1.5 pounds down. I ended up loosing 3.6lbs! I was excited and ready to move onto week two.
I weigh myself daily, but the day that "counts" for me is Friday morning. Last Monday when I stepped on the scale, I about died....I had PUT ON A POUND! What the heck?! So I spent this week trying to loose that pound. A little came off here, a little there, and then on Wednesday I had a great loss: 1.2lbs! Finally. Thursday a little came off and then this morning I almost fell off the scale: 2.2lbs down for a total of 6.8lbs in only two weeks!!
After exercising today, I now have a fever, sore throat, and a horrible case of the chills. Fun, fun. Oh, and I'm a little nauseous when I stand up!
Since I've set my weekly goal for between 1- 1.5lbs down, I'm way ahead. I could very well hit the 10lb mark this month. That would be awesome....but I'm not going to get all excited about it.
Have a great week everyone!
