I can’t believe we are a couple days into February 2015 already! Where the heck is the time going?
Since I (re)started this whole weightloss journey January 4th, I was thinking of making a weekly update. But, I think that’s a little too much. So I’ll be making this new series “Month at a Glance” at least for this year. It will be interesting for me to look back and see how far that I’ve come!
Week 1: Every Sundays I will be weighing in. It’s the first day of my work week and I feel like it will just work out well for me. Also, on the first Sunday of the month I will be taking my measurements. So for this first Sunday I weighed in and did all my measurements. I did several workouts at home that week, but that next Saturday I got a gym membership! I feel like it pushes me to workout harder when I’m at the gym, so I’m really excited about it!
Week 2: I weighed in on Sunday and I lost 2.5 pounds my first week! That was more than enough motivation to push me to work even harder! Two of my friends, Cheyenne and Felicia, also got gym memberships and we went together almost every day this week. We made a “secret group” on Facebook to help keep each other on track. We also started tracking all of the food we eat on the MyFitnessPal app. I went to the gym 5 days this week and burned a total of 2,558 calories at the gym! That is huge! I lost 6 pounds this week and 8.5 total!
Week 3: I went to the gym 5 times this week! I burned a total of 2,271 calories at the gym and that really makes me happy! I lost 3.7 pounds for the week, making it a total of 12.2 pounds down for the month!
Week 4: I was feeling great after Sunday’s weigh in and ready to take on another week. But, when I woke up on Monday I was so incredibly sick. I felt like I was on death row. I went to the clinic and was told that I had a severe sinus infection, but I’m pretty sure I had the flu bug that has been going around. It knocked me out for the week. I had to call in 3 days. I went to work 2 days, but was exhausted when I came home. I didn’t work out at all this week, however, I did get a lot of ab exercise in with all the coughing I was doing. I was pretty nervous to weigh in and do my measurements for the month, but it all went pretty well. I lost 1.1 pounds this week.
Neck: Lost 1 inch
Chest: Lost 3 inches
Arms: Lost 1 inch
Waist: Lost 3 inches
Hips: Lost 3 inches
Thighs: Lost 2 inches
Total Inches Lost : 13 inches!
Weight: Lost 13.3 pounds
I can’t believe those numbers. And if that doesn’t push me to strive to do the best I can, don’t know what will! I feel like I did an awesome job this first month and can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for me! I know I can do this!
Lots of love.
