Lady Luck Loses: Weigh in Week 2
Trendy weight loss tools
How to do crunches
It's week 2 and here's how I did
So, last week I went public with my weight loss mission.
I outlined some goals, and put forth my plan of action, and now I am here to report what really went down this week.
I have decided not to list out everything I ate everyday, because that would be ridiculous. BUT if you really want to know what I am eating, feel free to e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
So this past week, I got started off on the wrong foot...or...errrr...more like my ass. I didn't go to the gym Monday or Tuesday because I was consumed with some type of crisis I was having and I was feeling pretty depressed and overwhelmed.
On Monday and Tuesday I also went out for Pad Thai TWICE, and felt AWFUL after eating it (this inspired a blog...which I linked to at the end of the article). I also logged my calories in at the end of the day and went WAY over what I originally intended to be eating, because I wasn't keeping track of it throughout the day.
So I woke up on Wed. feeling like complete shit and like a huge failure, and then it occurred to me that I promised to report back here on hubpages, and I knew I would have to talk about my two-day slip up, and I wasn't about to make it three days on top of the mess I had gotten myself into.
Instead of saying " screw it" I already messed up a good part of the week, I decided I had to get on track ASAP.
So I re-evaluated my goals so they weren't overwhelming. I re-assessed my calorie goals first, and decided that rather than coming up with my own number, I would let the daily plate tell me how many calories I needed to eat each day to lose weight.
I also revised my workout goals. Instead of leaping into six days at the gym, I went four.
On those four days I:
- Did the elliptical for 35 minutes and burned 450 calories
- Used the weight machines to lift for 30 minutes all four days
I didn't expect to see any results...
But I weighed myself anyway and I am happy to report -1.5 pounds.
( FYI- I stated last week that I refuse to disclose my starting weight until I reach my goals).
I wasn't expecting the scale to budge, and since I am more focused losing sizes, rather than pounds, I invested in a tape measure.
AND I AM happy to give you my measurements (taken 2 minutes ago):
- Chest: 48
- Waist: 43
- Hips: 50
I'm ready to lose some more inches so my goals for this week:
- Trimming off 100 cals from my daily plate everyday
- Adding in crunches on workout days
- Upping the time on the elliptical to 40 mins instead of 35
See you for my weigh in next week!
OH, PS: I hope you paid really good attention to my Lady luck loses article (WEEK 1) because I have a surprise announcement coming by the end of this week.
