Gotta Keep On Going

This past week has been a really good week for me. I have totally turned it around from the week before. I was so upset after buying my new scale that my weight number was not what I thought it was. If you recall, it was 8 lbs. different. But I still forged ahead and kept on going not looking back. Actually I didn't want to look back. So last sunday was the day I decided to start counting my calories. Oh boy was I glad I did. I never realized how much of a difference counting calories could make. I've noticed the things that I used to eat are really not that appealing to me anymore (ex. junk food). Even when I go to the grocery store now I look at how much calories there are in things. My new thing to eat right now when I am craving sweet or just plain bored and want to munch on something is a breath savers mint. The best part it's only 5 calories. My biggest problem was munching while I was at work.Sitting at a desk all day long gets pretty boring at times. So what would be the next thing best thing to do grab a something to munch on and snack away. Now work has added a big screen (60 in. in fact) tv in our lobby and who is the main person at the lobby. Me? So do you know how tempting it is to just grab a bag of whatever chips is at the vending machine and munch on it while watching some tv. Very temting. Though I don't and that's why I have my mints handy. Gotta love those mints. So in conclusion I am going to keep on forging ahead until I reached my goal weight. Oh.. I forgot to mention the best part. I've lost 8 lbs. total since sunday!! I am super stoked! I feel great! Have a great week!

Question: What parts of your body are you especially proud of right now? What makes you love them?

The body part that i am most proud of right now would have to be my legs. Calves especially. Before I started doing this workouts my legs expecially my calves they used to jiggle.. not a pretty site to me anyway. But now that i've done these jump lunges, jump squats and especially those air squats (i love them the most), my calves have been really toned. That is the most part i am proud of.

  1. Congratulations on losing 8lbs in one week!! Holy cow that is a lot! You should try the new extra gum instead of mints. The apple pie is really good, almost like having a slice without all the calories! Everyone seems to say their legs this week.

  2. I'm so glad you've found what works and that you've turned it all around. Congrats on the pounds lost, and on not giving into to the tough temptations.

  3. 8 pounds is awesome! Good for you! You may wantto try sipping water, too.. that helps me with the "munchies"


  4. Way to go on the pounds lost. Looking at calories and exactly what I was putting in my mouth was a huge eyeopener for me as well. Way to go on not giving into the temptations and sticking to something better to snack on.
