I lost another 1 3/4 pounds! Yep, this is me, doing my happy dance. :) So I wanted to lose 2lb a week, but 3.25 in two weeks is still good, especially when wrestling with PCOS makes it so hard. I will take it. :) I do have a confession though... I had to use the note pad I wrote my measurements down on for something, and now I can't find it! :( But I'm so glad with the weightloss that I'm not too disappointed, but I did promise you my measurement changes this week... and I can't give them to you, sorry. Thank goodness I've been doing my weight on the wii and it records it for me!
SO, here is my honesty journal. We tweaked some things, and one day I was told that all the house work I did was my work out, and not to do more... so here is what my week looked like.
Monday: Did all my squats, crunches, physio, but had a migraine and could not do my couch to 5k.
Tuesday: Did my couch to 5k from the day before, my reverse crunches and walked 10 min
Wednesday: Cleaned for a couple of hours, did 30 min of jogging on the spot. DID NOT want to exercise this day... sadly the Duke had to issue it an order. :( Sorry ladies. :(
Thursday: 23 min of stepping on the wii fit plus, cleaned for two hours, did some dancing (alone, in my livingroom and kitchen while doing some stuff around the house) for probably 20 min, made sure to work my hips, abs and arms a lot. :)
Friday: Washed and hung on the line 4 loads of laundry, then later brought them in and folded, also tidied the house and spring cleaned one area of a room. I was told that was enough, the Duke doesn't want me to hurt my shoulder more, especially with how much I have to reach to get the clothes on and off the line.
Saturday: 20 min of stepping on the wii fit plus, also 20 min of yoga on the wii fit plus
Sunday: 6min box, 10min steppin, 11min hola hoop, all on the wii fit plus + 10min walk
As you can see, on the weekend I switched to the wii fit plus. And I may be switching to that we think. The reason is that I haven't been building up a sweat while jogging, but I do pretty quickly on the wii fit. Because my shoulder is starting to get better, but acting up if I use it too much, I'm not allowed to attempt the vidoes again at this point.. :( Also, with the wii fit, I was way behind a few days ago on the weight loss, and then the last two days is when most of it came off. So that is another reason we are thinking of me staying with the wii fit for now. I think I'll try to keep the squats and crunches though on top. The other great thing about the wii fit is that it records what I did for exercise, which is great. (No, I have not been paid to brag about the wii fit) ;)
This week we also started, a few days ago, at having a large salad before supper every night. I HATE salad. Sorry, I don't think I said that loudly enough. I HATE salads. :( Sometimes I can dress them up nice, and make them taste good, they still upset my stomach. I don't know if I've ever admitted, but my stomach does not like veggies. I get nauseated, crampy, gassy, and just want to lie down. But... they are good for you... so, we will keep eating them. I do eat some veggies, but probably only 2 servings a day compared to the 4-7 you're supposed to have. We also have decided for the Duke and I, that no junk food will enter the house except on Saturdays, and then, only a small portion as a snack for that day only. If what we want cannot be bought in a smaller form, then it is saved for the next Saturday, and NOT to be eaten before.
I am not going to change our diet much more than this for this coming week. I don't want to make overwhelming changes.
So, my question is, how are you all doing with your Spring Fling Challenges? Have you had to make adjustments that work better for you than you thought at the beginning? Are you struggling and need some encouragement and cheering? Have you fallen off the bandwagon but want motivation to get back on? I'd love to support you in any way I can. :) Thank you to all of you who have been supporting me. :)
