You all surprised me with your kind, encouraging words. Thank you!
I've lost two pounds this week with six days of dieting. So...that's two down eighteen pounds to go.
Here's a brief overview of the week in calories and work-outs:
Sunday: 50 minute leg work-out, abs, 2 1/2 bike ride, didn't monitor calories till Monday
Monday- 1,737 calories
Tuesday-1,530 calories, 50 minute back and biceps work-out, abs, 2 1/2 mile bike ride
Wednesday-1,700 calories, eight miles of biking
Thursday-1,535 calories-50 minute chest and triceps work-out, abs 2 1/2 mile bike
Friday-1,720 calories- 4 mile bike ride
I also worked on drinking more water every day. I may have gotten in at least six glasses.There are some weak spots I need to work on. I'd like to keep closer to the 1,400 calorie range. But I made some positive movements forward. I took out all white flour foods, though I still use sugar and creamer in my coffee. I may have to go to black coffee as this goes on. I think I'm beginning to feel better about myself.
I will probably post on Sundays as it is more challenging for me to get to the library during the week, so I may lose more weight by tomorrow morning as it is not a true seven day week.
Thank you again!
See you next week!
