Yep, day 2 of the 30 Day Shred challenge is complete and muscles I forgot I had (triceps, obliques, deltoids) are
asking begging me to stop the insanity. It was so hard to get out of bed this morning at 5:30 to do my workout. Physically, I just wanted to sleep and let me sore body rest. But mentally, my brain screamed NO! I reminded myself that the soreness will get better (and get better faster if I workout) and that I must workout if I am serious about losing weight and getting into shape. I cannot lie in bed and lose weight – it does not work that way! I have goals and I am going to reach to goals! Sore quads be damned!
Weigh in today was a meh moment. Today the scale flashed 238.4. So I am up a little from last week, but I was expecting it because of the new workout. When my muscles are taxed they tend to hold on to water. I expect that when the soreness passes the weight should drop too.
Today is also the official start date of my diet according to BDS.
Day 15 – Monitor Your Eating.
Today’s topic is all about tracking what you eat. WRITE IT DOWN! It is amazing how much better I eat when I actually take a couple of minutes to track the food ( I do this using the Lose It app). This little step makes me so accountable. Being accountable is the key to weight loss. Visually seeing a number of calories consumed makes me think about my food choices.
QOD – Do you track your food?
