My fitness week started off really well with a very hard workout from my trainer which included a million box jumps, lots of Medicine ball slams and a very tough exercise that I have never tried before:
I pushed 135lbs on that thing back and forth maybe 25 feet. Everything burned! My lungs, my quads, my heart rate was crazy. I mean wow! Tuesday I took spin and then later on that night a virus hit me like a mac truck. It was very similar to the stomach bug I had last year except this one was a big more rough. It did leave my body with 24 hours but it also left me incredibly dehydrated and weak. Needless to say I am saving my next workout until tomorrow when I teach class.
The past couple of weeks have been really good. I’ve been super consistent with my calorie counting and staying within my range. I know I need to do better with taking my food to work but in the meantime I am finding low calorie decent meals that work and taste yummy! For example: the Baja Ensalada from Baja Fresh. Only 450 calories and very good!
I do have to decline the side of chips that come with it though. Although it’s my favorite, it’s not really worth the additional 210 calories.
Even though it’s crazy cold outside and we all have on our big winter coats I have been in the mindset that the coats will be coming off in just a few short months. I am using this winter as a time of preparation! Usually when temps start to climb, that’s when people what to get their bikini bodies. I’m using right now, the middle of January, and focusing all my energy and efforts into June when I will be doing loads of traveling. I want to be in the best shape possible! So now is the time to put in WORK!
So last week I lost 1.1 pounds, yesterday the scale said something crazy like I lost 4-5 pounds, now I am not counting this as a loss until my body gets fully hydrated again, only then I can figure out what the real number is. After 2 days of not eating and high depletion I wasn’t surprised to see such a low number on the scale, it would only set myself up for failure if I didn’t take my dehydration into account. I am 4.9 (Not including this week’s weigh in) pounds away from first goal.
