I changed the header of my page to “Sweating off the layers to find myself” instead of “Shedding off the layers to find myself”. I thought it made more sense since I’ve started working out a lot more. Also I switched things around a bit on my site. Let me know if it is annoying. My Mom suggested I set it up this way due to some people reading my last entry first.
Today I am starting to see results! I pushed myself extremely hard last night. I am starting to loose weight faster than I had expected. I am going to have a nice number to post when I weigh myself next Friday! I know in the biggest loser they would loose weight really fast in the beginning and then they would loose very little to none in the 3rd week due to building muscle, etc... I am prepared for this hurdle; I hope to keep my head high no matter what.
It is Michaels Birthday. I DID NOT eat ANY cake! Although I was tempted I just cute slices for everyone else. I didn't even take a dab of frosting. I am starting to amaze myself with my will power. It is EXTREMELY hard! But like I said before in one of my posts we got him Beef-a roo beef to surprise him with sandwiches. I am so proud of myself! I had a banana for breakfast with water and then for dinner we had beef sandwiches. I only had 2. They were very small, like sliders. Michael ate 6!! Normally I would have eaten the same. I took my time again with each bite and drank water between each bite. That works wonders for me. It’s so amazing how full I get. It’s like to where I can’t finish the last bite! That is going to save me in this weight loss process. My stomach is shrinking and so is my body! I love it. My Mom is starting to notice in my face and Michael started to notice changes in me yesterday. Heck, even today I noticed when I weighed myself just out of curiosity. Before it was really hard for me to stand on scale with putting my legs together cause of the fat and today it was much easier! Last night I sprinted up the stairs to go to bed and did not get out of breath like I normally do. These little things mean so much. I started crying today just talking about sprinting up the stairs. It’s getting to be a little emotional but in a good way. I see myself changing; mind and body.
I have yet to work out tonight but I will! When I exercise I set my alarm on my phone for 30 minutes and make myself work out for that much at least once a day and I am hoping to be able to exercise tonight without stopping to look at the time and see how much time I have left! Boy does 30 minutes seem to go by a lot faster sitting on the couch, lol.
Last night I started to notice signs of a heat rash. I have it all over my face and most of my body. It will go away soon I hope. It’s from all that hard work I have been doing!!! My body is not used to sweating, ha! Too bad, so sad!
Picture of me after my intense work-out last night. I look like crap but just shows how hard I have been pusing myself! But not too hard. I know over doing it isn't good for me either :)
