Another weigh in day!!! Yes that is right you are seeing “!!!” Normally I weigh in on Mondays at work but the nurse was late and I was starving. So I decided to weigh in on Tuesday instead! After last week’s amazing 6.4 pound loss and it being TOM; I braced for a gain or a stay the same. Imagine my surprise when I saw a 1.8 pound loss!!
That’s right folks I am 194.6! Or 8.2 pounds in 2 weeks. I Love MAY! So I am officially at 69.2 pounds!
I have continued to track my food using myfitnesspal app – I love it. Did I mention you can scan your barcodes with it? Last week I worked out at boot camp Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. I walked during lunch because we had the most amazing weather last week (Since Saturday it has rained). I can get a good 2 mile hike up the hilly terrain behind my office during my 30minute lunch. Saturday and Sunday I put in 45minute interval runs coming in just under 4 miles!
The running has really pushed me to the next level and I am not talking about the weight loss on the scale. I have had significant changes in my body now that I am putting in about 8 miles each weekend. The fat roll (aka muffin top) is dramatically less. I am also noticing it in my hips are not as wide! I have this other fat roll below my bra on my ribs and it too is going away - maybe that is from all the sideplanks we have been doing!
I can actually feel my muscles thru the fat! I told my husband that the fat is the blankets over my muscles and now I have the summer blanket on instead of the heavy winter ones! Today alone I have received 3 or 4 compliments at work on how I look. Of course dropping 8 pounds in 2 weeks helps a lot with that!
