So, last week I had a bad week. And by bad I mean that I didn't lose any weight. I didn't gain any either, but I did work out 4 days for what seemed like nothing. Boo. I was sooo ridiculously hungry all week and I had no idea why. Was it from working out so much? Was it from not eating as much as my fat A is used to? Or was I just hungry for no reason at all? Then the answer became very clear, something that I didn't anticipate, Aunt Flo showed up. I was wondering when she'd return, usually right around nine months post-partum my OB said, but my Aunt showed up a few months early. It's cool, I'd rather get this show on the road and get back to normal. But since the mystery was solved (and copious amounts of food was eaten!) I have resolved to be much more proactive this week.
I have decided to take it up a notch since now my knee (praise the Lord!!) is feeling much better. Work outs will still be 4 days a week BUT an hour long each day, with weight training added in. And I am starting a 3 day "military diet" tomorrow. After I complete it, I will let you know the results and give you the deets, but for now, let me be your Guinna pig. You all probably know that my philosophy is never about finding a quick fix, it's about slow and steady wins the race, but I'm looking at this as a "detox" of sorts after my naughty weekend, and as usual, I will probably slightly modify it to meet my needs.
I am close to hitting my first goal, losing all weight gained from Lucas, I have 11 lbs to go and plan on killing that this month. Then it's off to conquering my Ethan weight gain, which will end up being about 38 more lbs...yikes!! But the goal is to have that gone by Jan 1st!! Then to my Everest!! The final 30-50 ( I may hit a certain wight and be cool with never reaching my soft goal weight) To which I promise some gnarly before and after pics, but there's no way in H-E double hockey sticks I'm putting up before pics without there being some afters to show as well!! Yikes! Stick with me kids, this is the real deal this time!
