So….I am SUPER excited because, if you’ll notice the new “My Fitness Pal” widget to the right….I have lost 2 pounds! I am blown away. I really thought that it would take a few more weeks, honestly. 2 pounds is not huge, but it’s a start!!
Yesterday was my light-bulb day. I had an awesome day with my eating and my exercise. Oh p.s. I obviously joined My Fitness Pal.
Yep, I had an extra 1000 calories at the end of the day. Boom. If every day were like yesterday… I’d weigh 136.4 lbs in 5 weeks. That is awesome! I did not feel deprived, I had a very filling breakfast, good snacks, and healthy lunch and dinner. Plus I killed my workout. It was a good day.
But the workout did not start out awesome. My legs are still really stiff. No matter how much I stretch, they are a bit sore. But last night I busted out the Stick, and that helped immensely. I hit the gym yesterday morning not sure if I was going to be able to do the full hour I had planned. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, doing intervals. I let my ipod determine the intervals…just, ya know, for fun. And a dreaded 30 minutes on the bike that I can’t keep my butt on. The bike was the worst. It’s just not made for shorties. I got on the bike, and was pretty sure that I couldn’t take more than 10 minutes. Because I pedal for 3 minutes, stop, re-adjust, pedal for 3 minutes, re-adjust…on so on. Because…muh butt sweats and I slip. But I kept telling myself “5 more minutes, just 5 more minutes”. So at 20 minutes Justin…oh Justin… he was singing right to me…asking me to stay so he could rock my body:
