Frustrated . . .So I've been working my ass off with the Slim in Six workouts for two weeks now. 6 days last week, 5 days this week. I'm taking today and tomorrow off mostly because I got blisters so bad on the backs of my heels yesterday playing golf that they bled. But also because physically, I'm exhausted.
In addition to the workouts, I've eliminated more than 99% of the soda I used to drink and replaced it with 100 or more ounces of water per day. I've been eating breakfast at home and NOT going through the drive through. In fact, I have not been to Jack in the box for breakfast at all this week. I've been making better choices at restaurants (not including outback the other night) and overall my food intake is down from what it was . . . and in my mind, it's a significant amount.
Getting on the scale this morning, my weight was 336.5 . . . when I started Slim in Six Monday of last week, I was 339.5. Yes, it's still 3 pounds I know and am somewhat happy about that. But earlier in the week it was down to 333 . . . and I was hoping that by today I could crack the 330 barrier. Well now I feel I'm a world away from it again and I'm frustrated. Next week I'm going to switch from doing the "Start it Up" workout at 25 minutes to the "Ramp it Up" workout at 45 minutes. That will add 20 minutes per day at 6 days a week an extra 2 hours a week working out. It's going to be tough to be sure. I'd better see some LBS dropping then . . . Do I feel better, yes. Do I look better? To me, no, to Teri, yes. So I guess it is doing SOMETHING if not dropping weight. I just can't believe that all this working out is building so much muscle as to offset any fat loss. Maybe it is.
Teri informed me the other day that since we moved into the new house (May of '06) she's dropped about 50 lbs. She looks phenomenal. She's going to look terrific on our wedding day. If only I can convince the photographer to take pictures of just her, we'll be fine . . . .
