Well, so far so good.  I saw a loss.  That's the most important thing!  Would I have liked to have seen more?  Certainly, but I'm not going to say that this loss didn't mean anything.  It showed me that my working harder is going to pay off.  I can already tell that I'm working my body harder.  I'm lifting weights more, I'm doing more cardio.  I'm pushing my body further and out of its comfort zone and that's what I needed.  This morning my arm muscles were sore.  I needed to feel that.  Too often I would get done with my workouts and realize that I had barely broken a sweat.  It's not really an effective workout if you haven't sweated a little I think.

I'm back to jogging in intervals on the treadmill (I just can't stand the monotony of running in place so that's why I break it up) I'm riding on the bike, I'm doing the elliptical machine.  I'm shaking it up everyday so that my muscles don't get into a routine. 

I'm also cooking a lot for myself and I'm LOVING it.  I roasted a chicken, I made turkey burgers, I'm making my breakfast every day.  I definitely miss having a kitchen on a regular basis...

So, we shall see if this continues to work for me.  Time will tell I suppose!

  1. Great job on the loss! I used to get frustrated with small losses - and still do, I'm working on being appreciative of any positive progress in the right direction - but one of my favorite bloggers, Tim ( just made his goal weight with mostly 1 pound losses, and that has been inspiring me lately.
