today's weigh-in: 190.2lbs
down 3.4lbs from last week
I am sooo close to halfway point - I can practically smell it! I was looking at my ticker today & my little flower is almost halfway. Its surreal. It doesn't really register that its me.
Last week's unfill has been great. I am not miserable like I was before but I can still feel it if I consume too much. I made soup yesterday & when I got to about a cup I could feel my belly filling it. Time to stop eating - simple! Also, I'm not really hungry. This is a gift - I'm not constantly thinking about my next meal.
As much as I love the band, I realize that I am doing all the work - not the band. I'm planning meals, making good food choices & going to the gym.
Here is a typical weekly workout:
Monday: 1hr kickbox + 1hr chisel
Wed: 1hr kickbox + 1hr chisel
Thurs: 1hr Zumba
Fri: 1hr Chisel + maybe some yoga or swim laps
I've been doing this schedule now for about 4 weeks & I totally see a difference. My arms, abs, butt & legs are definitely toning up. I have never been a gym person in my life so this is quite a change. My biggest worry moving into an exercise routine was getting injured. I feel like I'm in the groove now & don't want to get derailed. My workouts are all pretty low-impact. No bouncing around or step aerobics for me.
Kickboxing & weights just make me feel strong. It all makes me feel good.
