Last night I went for a bike ride instead of working out in the basement. It was so nice! It was about 7:30 when I went. I rode past this big field and the sun was so hazy; so gorgeous. I felt like I was in a movie, lol. Today for my workout Michael and I went swimming! The water was perfect and my bathing suit fit so much better than it did last summer!
I went to the grocery store today and got some more corn on the cob and lean cuisines. Corn on the cob is one of those things that I used to love before I was dieting. There is part of eating it now that feels sinful but I know it’s healthy. Same goes for cantaloupe!
I no longer have any “seat belt” fears; meaning not having to worry about getting in someone’s car and not having the seat belt fit! That has happened to me. There was this one time when I actually held it the whole time to make it look like it was buckled! Now I have more room than I need.
I have been weighing myself every morning since Friday. I am so impatient! I want to know THE day I go into the 200’s. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, I feel I need to know! This morning I was finally at 300. I am hoping since I have stopped the weight training that my gained muscle will help my body burn more calories. I read online that for every pound of muscle you build your body will burn 50 more calories than it normally would a day. When I get into the 200’s; don’t worry; you guys will be the first to know! ;)
