Week 2 Review

28 Mar

*I meant to post this yesterday but time got away from me…so here you go!*

I can’t believe it has already been 2 weeks! As much as week 1 dragged by, week 2 didn’t seem nearly as dreadful…I mean, long.  See below for my tracking & thoughts on week 2.

 1. Tracking

Here is a recap of my WW points for week two. We already addressed the 16.5 bonus points I used in my “Weekend Oops” post, so just pretend like those aren’t there. No need to live in the past – shoo, shoo!

& below is my recap of exercise for week 2. I am continuing to alternate days of straight cardio and days of weightlifting and cardio combined (on those days I usually do less cardio). Although I only worked out 5 days this week instead of 6 like last week, I still feel like that is great progress & is still within my “plan” to go a minimum of 4 times a week and maximum of 6. I think 5 is more realistic from week-to-week but I know that the more I work out, the better results I will get!

So with all of that being said, I did lose…

1 more pound this week!

I know – it’s not a lot. I am trying not to be a Debbie Downer about it BUT I know this is a process and it will take time so I will take what I can get.

Total to Date: 4 pounds lost

2. Thoughts

So last week I talked about how I was just CONSTANTLY in pain after utilizing muscles my body didn’t even know existed. This week it is MUCH better. Mostly noticeable on the days I do weights but if I stretch really well, it helps to relieve the tightness (if you work out all the time & already know this, please pretend like this is brand new information).

As far as my body goes, I feel like I can tell that I am starting to slim up a little. I know, I know – none of y’all can & it’s probably just all in my head.

But let me tell you how my pants are organized by size: Awesome pants. Big girl pants. Fat pants. Right now I am in limbo between my fat pants and my big girl pants – meaning my fat pants are getting loose but my big girl pants are still too tight. SO, although one belt has already given its life for this cause (may she rest in peace), I am tightening my belts the tightest they will go until I can officially move down a size. I know I still have a ways to go since it’s really only 2 pairs of pants that are STARTING to feel a teensy bit loose BUT that’s still good news and, again, I’ll take what I can get.

Good luck during week 3 to all of you joining me! & if you said you were going to join me but are really eating bacon-cheeseburgers for dinner and avoiding the gym like the plague…then, c’mon – don’t leave me out here to die alone! Get going – chop, chop!
