mascara. I always make the most awkward
That's how I felt stepping on the scale yesterday morning.
And I gotta tell you...it was a great date. No really, I got to second base--if the equivalent to "second base" was losing 2 lbs! That's right, friends. 2 el-BEEs!
To what do I credit the weight loss?
My new favorite website: www.caloriecounter.about.com
I log in my meals, workouts, water intake (Remember how I was supposed to drink 100 oz a day this week. Well, I did that for the first 2 days and then flaked it a little and only hit about 80 oz for the rest of the week.), and the website spits out an analysis of my food day. I even get a letter grade. [smugly] I got mostly A's this week.
[cough] Maybe 2 B's.
Anyhow, it was an amazing week. I felt like I was competing against my caloric limit, which as competitive as I am, it really motivated me. The program suggested that I keep my calories under 1800 a day, and my average for the week was 1400-1500, so MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Thanks, calorie counter.
Workouts kicked trash too.
MON: Ran a 5K in 42 min.
TUES: Worked in my garden for an hour.
WED: Ran a 5K in 39 min.
THURS: Worked in my garden for 45 min.
FRIDAY: Worked in my garden for 4 hrs.
SAT: Worked in my garden for 4 hrs.
I'm happy with the results. If next week goes as well as this week, I might go on a second date with my bathroom scale. [faint wedding bells in the background]
Week 3's plan is soon to come...
