So not the greatest loss. I went off track a few times this week. I know I can lose weight faster if I were more disciplined in my eating. One thing that is important to me is that I keep the weight off. I would rather lose slowly than to lose big quickly and have the weight return once again. There is always room for improvement. This week I am going to do better in my eating!!
My goal is to get in 5 workouts (45-60 minutes) a week. I am proud to report I have done just this! In fact most weeks I get in 6 work outs. I have failed to report my exercise last week.
Doing well. I make my goal of 80oz. most days. Some days I do fall a bit short, but not by much, a few ounces here and there.
In the past week I lost a ½ inch on all of my mid section including: ribs, waist, belly and hips! Since I have started the challenge I have lost the following:
On to week six!!
