Week 3 – Complete!

Alrighty…  Since January 6, 2013 I have lost 7.5 pounds. I’m okay with that. I’d prefer it if was more, but I think I’m doing pretty good! I am 8.8 pounds away from my first goal weight.

I’m really proud of myself. Out of the last 21 days, I have worked out 18 days. I’ve either gone to GoodLife here in Airdrie, or I’ve worked out in the fitness room at whatever hotel I’m staying in.

I’m finding it a bit challenging balancing my time though. But it’ll work itself out.

This week should not be an issue at all, it’s next week that I’m worried about. February 4-10. This will be a challenge for me. If I lose weight that week I will be SO SURPRISED but I will make time to work out and hopefully that helps/makes a difference…

So earlier this week… I think it was Wednesday, I showed up at the gym ready to work out with Kim, and she comes rushing over to where I am and was like “ohhi!guesswhatwehaveafreepersonaltrainingsession!” I was my usually self. *blink* “ummm… okay….” I guess her dad spent a lot of money on personal training so his trainer was like “lets go free session RIGHT NOW” and he said “oh but my daughter is here” and she said “that’s ok she can come to” so Kim said “Oh but my friend is here” and she said “oh that’s ok she can come too”.

That 1/2 hour session, in which I’m positive we did hardly anything, I sweat more than I do in my 1.5 hour work outs usually. Holy. Shitballs. Seriously. And we weren’t doing anything special. But honestly I started pouring sweat (which is still new to me, and it grosses me out so much) in like 30 seconds. Way to make me feel inadequate gym lady! haha. I kid. But seriously. It was awesome – in a horrible way. We did curls. And then we did tricep thingies over our head, and we did pushups (good god) and we did these things where we had to like, get in a pushup type position on an aerobics step and raise our knees to our chest one at a time kind of like we’re running. We looked like fools, and we were laughing which made it harder. But yeah. I am still sore from that. And it’s been 4 days. haha.  We did squats and other fun things. So yeah. Good times.

Oh yeah, I cancelled my Weight Watchers membership. I got my FitBit in the mail on … Wednesday I think, and it tracks your calories/fat/carbs/protein etc and tracks your weight and activity and makes the necessary adjustments based on what you ate, how active you’ve been and how you’re buring the calories (time of day etc.) . Fitbit syncs with MyFitnessPal, so I log my food & activity at MFP and it syncs with my fitbit! If you are interested in fitness or losing weight and you HAVEN’T checked out MyFitnessPal, you totally should. It’s free, and AWESOME.  So yes. I don’t want to be tracking my food & Activities in 2 places and it just makes more sense to use the fitbit for that – since I’m using it for everything else. And also makes more sense to go with the one that’s not costing me any money…

Alright well this was a boring blog update. I had more funny witty things to say but I can’t remember what they were…

Next time I guess. ;)
