It has been two weeks since I decided that I needed to make some tough changes to restart my weight-loss, and it seems to be working. By limiting processed carbs and sugar, I’m seeing results. I wish I could lose 10 pounds overnight, but right now I’m happy seeing the numbers inch down.
My protein intake has been excellent, but I need to consume more veggies than I have in the last couple of days. I just need to make some time to shop for produce which I will do Thursday or Friday. Until then, I’ll eat the green beans and zucchini that I still have in the fridge.
Throughout the last two weeks I have eaten one unhealthy meal, and during that meal I limited my portion to one serving. I haven’t had a drop of alcohol, which was a challenge when I had company on the rooftop, but I am determined to continue moving forward. I hate that I allowed my weight to find its way back into the low 300’s, but I’m actively working to change it.
Last week I started working out with a trainer from my gym. His name is Ron, and you can say hi to him on twitter if you want to. He’s the perfect combination of sweet and tough, and if you have to sweat your guts out in front of someone, why not do in front of someone who is a constant reminder of what exercise can do?
After an hour with this guy last week, I was sore for two days. Seriously…two days, but it felt good! I’m meeting with him again in about half an hour, and I’m looking forward to pushing past the limits I’ve created for myself in my head.It seems as though his presence, even when I’m not scheduled to workout with him,makes me fight harder too. Check out my sweaty red face (and super awesome shirt) after a solo workout.
I know that having a personal trainer is a luxury. I know it’s not always feasible, but I also know that I feel amazing right now. I’m in control of my food intake, and I’m trying break through the barriers that I’ve struggled with for far too long.
Last week you all made it very clear that I’m not alone in this so now I have to know….What are you doing to crush your goals this week?
