Y’all know the deal by now…5 weeks ago I started checking in with you guys every Friday as a part of my humiliation/accountability diet. I started with 35 pounds to lose, last week I refused to acknowledge my weight as a birthday present to myself, and this week I am down 4 pounds!
Which, although is not as far as I would have liked to have come in 5 weeks, is still good progress. And I finally feel settled into a routine or…wait for it…lifestyle.
For lent instead of giving something up, I have decided to take on working out every single day. Even if it is just 20 minutes with Jillian, or the abs portion of Tracy, doing something physical every day seems to keep my other habits in line. This week I have been doing two a days, Jillian or Tracy in the morning, and then either an hour at the gym or a walk with Gracie in the afternoon. I have a lot more energy and am much happier.
Which is great because Pete has been studying crazy hours preparing for the Bar which he is taking next week (he couldn’t take it as planned this July because the Doctors were afraid Gracie would arrive in the middle) and has been minimally helpful/fun around the house. All work and no play makes your only child needy wife very grumpy.
And even though it is only 4 pounds, I can tell my body is changing. I am not going to describe to you the gross rolls that are no longer rollin’ or sags that are less saggy, but it is happening. Next week I am going to share some of the recipes that we have enjoyed, and I am also doing a body comp at the gym to get a better idea of the muscle gain/fat loss situation which is always really motivating.
How are you guys doing? Any new tips/recipes? Progress? The best part about this is knowing y’all are working along with me, so don’t abandon me now mister sisters!
