Today I noticed that the jeans I bought a few months ago are looser! Yes! They are falling down a wee bit now...may have to get a belt. A BELT! To keep up my PANTS! Just makes me oddly happy. Also, I have this really cute button-up top that I bought a size too small so it would fit in the waist even though it wouldn't button at the bust. Today...it buttoned! I did some measurements a while ago, and it seems I've lost 1.5 inches around my chest and 1 inch each off my arms and thighs! Coool! The waist and hip measurement is maybe 1/2 inch down. If I am feeling brave, I will post my measurements...maybe in 20 lbs or so. :P OH! And I wanted to take before pics for y'all, but as I mentioned in a previous blog, I drowned my camera. :( I will take some as soon as we get a new one.
Today was a good day for eating...mostly because I ditched the carrots and ate sweet, delicious grapes instead. Mmmm. I was also able to eat cereal again, Raisin Bran this time (and yay it was on sale, so I have two boxes! No more breakfast crises for while.). I had yogurt and and a handful of almonds for a snack after work- a time I am usually hungry enough to eat a couch cushion. Dinner tonight was the leftover roast chicken, salad, corn, baked potato and a few spoonfuls of my macaroni salad. Devil salad...so tasty, but not not good for me! I was a bit full after, and I didn't even eat all of my potato! I am trying to listen for my body to tell me when I am full. Takes practice. I didn't drink enough water today, though. I had a headache. I am trying to drink some now, but I really have to do better on this one! I know drinking water helps me lose weight.
Ramping...did I say something about ramping yesterday? I believe I did! On the bike today, I made a very good effort to stay around 20 (I think that's kilometers/hr?), and I could really feel it. I've been doing mostly resistance level 3, with some 4 interspersed for added leg torture. I noticed that when I did the level 4 for a bit longer, it got easier. I want to work up to doing mostly 4 and 5. I can really feel my leg muscles now! Gettin' hard as rocks! Well, rocks with some cushy fat on them. Used the light weights again, but I'm thinkin' I will bring out the bigger ones for next time. I did 30 minutes and "rode" 7.5 kilometers.
Tomorrow is walk day...but it may rain. EEP!
Stats for the day:
Weight: 210 (there ya go!)
Exercise: 30 min. high intensity
