So I got on the scales today. Because I wanted to have my usual weekly, morning, butt naked weigh in, to record it here, like I said I will every week. I also wanted to know how much I lost on the “back to ww points” and I also wanted to have a fresh starting weight to compare for the new 15 day challenge with this new eating plan, which, after a thorough grocery shopping yesterday, starts today.
So I lost a kilo and am back to the wonderful – for now – land of the 80’s. Felt really good to see the magic 8 this morning.
I am also really pushing myself in the exercise front. After a great suggestion from Chris, I just bought myself a fitness ball this morning. Unfortunately I did not find one with a DVD, but this one I got has a flyer with a series of exercises, so it should be ok. I am so looking forward to start tomorrow morning. And I also changed the weights. Instead of working both hands simultaneously with 1 kg in each, I am now doing them separately by using both weights in one hand.
My treadmill has a 30 mins weightloss program. It keeps the speed steady and alters the inclines every 5 mins. But the speed is very low at 3.2 kpm, so I am increasing it at 6.0 kpm. I hope it doesn’t break the machine…lol. I know I should program it and make a couple of different programs to alternate each day, instead of just pushing buttons while I work out. But I would need to read the manual for that and me and manuals have never been close!
And another thing that is different ever since the incline and weights were incorporated to my work out is my hunger. I am really hungry all day long! I wonder if it is due to the extra effort. We will see.
Anyway, I got to work some too. So here is this week’s results:
