communion (i am not cheating)

So I know i said I would update this twice a week, but this last week has been pretty crazy. I am moving to a new place, so every spare minute I have I am using it to pack. So a quick update:

So everytime i see my trainer, he asks "Have you cheated?" well i can honestly say the answer is "no". why would I, I have the perfect plan (an equal balance of food and workout.)

Last Sunday I attended church and we did communion, normally I would totally do it, but this time I just had to pass on it, as I know its just grape juice (but I had no idea what was in it, I am learning to read labels, and I can not have anything with High Fructose Corn syrup in it.) So I had to pass, another thing as of right now I can not have is grain or flour (so I wasn't going to cheat and eat the little piece of bread.) I am totally dedicated in this new plan, that i just could not do communion (I hope God understands).

I also weighed-in this time on wednesday, and sadly no change. So I am going to look forward to friday's weigh-in. I will keep you posted.

p.s. Even with the little weight I have lost, I am already starting to get complaiments that I am looking like ive lost weight. and that is very cool.

Week 2: Sickies & 4 pounds

So its the end of week 2, so far no cheating. For once I don't want to, I have the perfect weight loss plan for me, the perfect balance between working out and food. So whats the point for me to cheat. This week has been different, I think my body is adjusting to the new food finally, but Wednesday was a bad day, nothing would stay down. but after getting a lot of sleep on Thursday. I am slowly starting to feel better. Workout today was tough, I didn't have all the energy I should have had. But I did good, and my trainer pushed me to almost the puking stage (i was really close).

So today was friday so it was weight-in. Good news is im 4 pounds down. So a total of 7 Pounds in 2 weeks. Not too bad. Next week the weight should be melting off if i dont cheat. (and why would I, I would have to then restart my body to go back into to ketoses all over again.

Week 1: 3 Pounds down

Quick update: So weigh-in was on Friday, and I was down 3 pounds, pretty good esp since it was my first week on my new "good" food plan, and my body was getting use to the new exercise plan as well. Friday was a good workout day, 100 wallballs, and afterward my legs felt like rubber. Today, they are very very sore. But good news is im excited for monday and the workout.

Week 1: Jello Legs

So I am getting on the blogger bandwagon, since I am starting a new chapter in my life. I figured that a great way to keep me accountable is to share my progress. I have decided to finally get in shape and really enjoy what life has to offer me. So I started this new workout and diet (both of which I really like, and right now its a perfect fit. as of week 1) I will try and update this 2x a week.

I am a little over halfway into my first week, and so far so good, no fast food runs, no subway (favorite place to eat), and I got all the "bad" food out of the house. Went shopping and got all the "good" food. I think the hardest part of this new plan is the fact that I can only drink water, no more pop, no more orange juice, no more chocolate milk. But I think this new plan is the perfect balance between eating right and working out. I know in the past for me, I would see great results on the mainstream diet plans for the first month or two. then as soon as i start really exercising I would stay the same for months at a time. I would eat what they said on there plans exactly and see no results. Already in just this first week, I have felt different, my body is starting to respond to the new foods and the work outs even thou they are hard, I feel good when i get done with them. Like yesterday I worked out with my trainer and he worked me hard, and when i got done for the day my legs felt like jello, and today they are stiff as can be, just barely moving them hurts. But I still got up and went for a walk, it was painful, but rewarding. and tomorrow I get to go workout with my trainer again. But for once I am actually excited to go and workout, before it was a chore now its something I look forward to, I think its the actual fact that my "good" food is based around my workouts. and they work well with each other.

Weigh in is at the end of the week. I am going to keep track with how much weight I lose, not were I am at currently, just because I am not sure where I will end up. I have a goal of what I would like to lose by key times in the year. I will keep you all posted (who ever ends up reading this)
