Down 2.4 more!
But I'm not really happy. I have busted my butt this week. Granted, I ate out several times, but I did really well. I ate an average of 1315 calories a day. I exercised 5 days for a total of 5 hours. And I lost 2.4 pounds this week. But that's 9.8 pounds in 2 weeks! So looking at the big picture, I'll take it!
I am really impressed at how much I really have changed this year. Exercising is almost habit. We eat dinner, we clean the kitchen, we go to the gym. It's that simple. I don't know how I would be doing this without Nathan though. He's such a good sport and he doesn't give me the option to back out. And me depending on him keeps him there too.
I am really suprised at my eating. When I went out to lunch Friday and Saturday, I was shocked at how little I wanted to eat. I ate less than half of what was on my plate, and I physically couldn't eat anymore. It wasn't that I didn't want it, I was just listening to my body.
And as much as I am listening when it comes to food, I need to stop listening when it comes to exercise. I let my tiredness talk me out of keeping going. We exercised a lot, but I only did my full plan one day. I didn't do weight training at all. Because I was tired. I need to keep Bob in my head, remember how tired the Biggest Loser contestants always are.
I am hopefully playing the Biggest Loser in my own way this week. I have 2 interviews, so I'm going to try putting off my start date at the restaurant until next week - I go in for orientation today. I want to use this week to live at the gym, keep cooking, and increase the support I give to my blogging buddies.
I can't wait to see how y'all did!
