Lattes and …?

So what if it's just another WordPress.com site?

Getting back in shape.. aiyaiyai

I’m just starting my third week on my plan to get back to my ‘happy weight.’ Boy.. it ain’t easy! I haven’t been too restrictive with my eating but I’ve been doing a LOT of exercise: boxing, personal training, spinning, TRX, powerplate class, running.. and boy, do I feel it in my muscles.. and my clothes! My clothes fit much more comfortably than before which is hugely rewarding and my sore muscles are proof that I’ve earned it. I haven’t actually weighed myself and I’m actually a little afraid to! I think it will say 129-something, which is good but also right on that borderline of being back in the 130s; if it’s in the 130s which is a possibility since I’ve developed a lot of muscle and I still eat quite a lot, I’ll be pretty upset. I don’t want to be upset by a number but c’mon.. y’all understand what I mean!

Regarding food- as I said, I haven’t been restrictive. I pretty much allow myself to eat most things except I do try to moderate the sweets (except fruit). I had one over-indulgent day (one week ago actually) when I had 3 chocolate chip cookies and 3 sugar waffles after dinner. I ran off most of it so I felt okay the day after but I sure don’t want that to happen again.  I could injure myself at that rate!

I’ve reconsidered what my ‘goal’ exactly is. It’s somewhere in the high-onehundred teens by September. That’s about six weeks away. At a rate of 2 lbs/week in weight loss it’s still healthily feasible  at a start of ~130 lbs. I do want to do it the right  way but it is pretty slow and patience-exhausting. I suppose I should feel lucky that I see the difference in my clothing fit after only 2 weeks though, right?
