The first week of my project 121 has gone by and I’ve noticed a few things.
When you count down to something specific you:
- tend to notice that time moves quickly
- become excited by the approaching event
- become anxious about the work you still need to do before you can go
- aware that you haven’t listened to the language cd’s in awhile
- motivated to do the things you haven’t
This past week I worked on swapping out some food choices and cutting down a bit on portions. I didn’t deny myself anything, really, and in fact I went to the Cheesecake Factory and had some peanut butter cup cheesecake. I split it with Hubby, had about 4 bites and felt satisfied. I never want my project’s focus to be on denial, but on reasonable choices instead.
I also logged 10.4 miles for walking, used my hand weights at home for some upper body toning and did some static leg exercises , AND – yesterday I wen to the gym and stepped up my upper body training. Now I’ve recruited #4 to go to the gym with me to teach me some of the lower body and midsection machines/floor exercises, that I need.
This weeks results………..drum roll please…………..
4 inches lost – mostly off belly and butt
3.2 lbs down
antsy if I don’t move by 2 pm
I’m happy with these results and am confident that I’ll be skittering up the Spanish Steps with the best of them.
