On Saturday, I started back at the gym. I've had a membership for years just hadn't used it in months. I wanted to focus on my cardio at the beginning of my bikini challenge but now I needed to add strength training. I truly LOVE lifting weights and I especially like doing it at the gym. Maybe all the expensive equipment, not like my handful of little weights at home. Yea, that could be it. Plus I really like to get right in the middle of all the muscled up guys at the free weights to lift my 10lb dumbbell.
Another thing I like about the gym, I run lots faster on their treadmills. Why, I don't really know. But I am kickin' butt on my times. I'm running 9:30 miles this week. It could be a combination of things like I watch tv/people to keep my mind preoccupied and I want to beat the person next to me. I'm not competitive or anything.
So I'm ramping up my exercise. Got to get me some lean muscle for that bikini pic!
As far as my eating, it's still doing well. I tried adding more daily water intake. I think I burned a bunch of calories walking back and forth to the bathroom this past week! I drink a liter in the morning, green tea at lunch, then more water during the afternoon. I've always drank water just not enough. So I'm working on it.
So what was my weight loss for this week? I'm down 1.4 lbs!
Hope y'all have an awesome week and meet some fitness goals. You're worth it!
