The Sally Up/Down squat challenge is a bitch. I’m feeling that burn. Two days in the bag.
My (sped up) accountability video is below. We have to post a video or pic to the FB group every day.
This morning, I decided to weigh myself for the first time in months to prepare myself for official weigh in on Saturday. It was better than I thought. I’ve essentially maintained through the quarantine, which is a surprise. I’ve gained maybe one to two pounds.
But this number has gone up, and that’s the real issue:
It was at 19%. Gonna fix that.
I really need to make it a priority to get my office treadmill moved to the house. I have to call today and set that up. I want it here by next week. It’s way too hot and humid to be running outside.
Have I mentioned I hate summer? Lol.
I weigh 149.7!!
I told myself that when I made it back into the 140s I could get my eyebrow piercing.
So now I have to decide if I want to go for it.
My husband is for it.
(My favorite month is July, which is my birthday month, and typically our vacation month. We have a lot of fun in July).
But tortilla chips have lots of carbs, so…
Not too shabby. Ain’t nothing like the real thing, obvi, but it cured the craving. Only 5 net carbs.
Ten pounds in one month.
Ten pounds to go.
AND…I saw 149.something flash before my weight settled at 150.1.
Reach my goal weight.
I’m loving the #dirtylazyketo lifestyle so far.
6.5 pounds down.
13 to go.
I’ve got this!
This week I’m going to start exercising again. Nothing too crazy. Just a couple/few days of cardio. Baby steps.
I weighed in this morning, expecting my weight to have gone up, but nope!!! I’m down two more pounds. It is giving me the motivation I need to not cheat. I’m super pleased so far. I haven’t felt very hungry, and my cravings haven’t been too terrible.
I saw this meme in my keto/low carb life Facebook group yesterday, and laughed. This is so accurate!
Now to keep it up. The first week is always the easiest to show a loss.
My body is sore af from the 21 Day Fix workout I did on Monday night. It was slightly sore yesterday, but today it’s like whoa-my-god. Moving hurts.
I guess I’m going to do the second workout tonight. Ideally, I would have done it last night, but we took a break from exercising last night. We banged and watched TNG instead.
Tonight we have dinner plans with Ann & Rob, but not until late, so I’m going to try to squeeze in workout #2 before we go.
Send thoughts and prayers.
After the gym yesterday.
We did some light cardio, but we mostly go to lift weights. I worked my arms and thighs hard, and oooooooh my goodness…OUCH. Lol
I’m happy to report that I’m actually improving. I was able to do more reps on the bench this time. Woot!!
My running has improved as well. My endurance has increased, and I’ve gotten faster. Seeing these results is the best motivation.
Tonight will have to be just cardio though, because like I said…ouch.
I couldn’t not share this ootd. (Woo…double negative got me like…😳).
I’ve been working my ass off (literally), as you know. So when I discovered that I once again fit into this size xs dress that I haven’t worn in several years, I figured that was def worthy of sharing!
We had a couple of beers at the neighborhood brewery this afternoon. We look too cute not to share:
We workout on Sundays and then grab a drink in the afternoon, and as a result, Sundays are becoming my favorite days.
I’m down another pound today, for a total of 4.2 lost since we got back from Key West.
I needed to see that this morning. It really helped my mood and motivation.
I’m happy to say that I’ve been really good about tracking this time around, which I think makes a huge difference. Still exercising, too.
You’ve got this, girl. Slow and steady.
