If I could pull it off, I would take advantage of this April Fool's Day to proclaim that after a week using Sensa and Acai Berry supplements while intuitively eating on the South Beach diet, I now weigh 152.4 lbs, for a total loss of over 10 pounds...in fat and not water weight, people!
The reality is that I stepped on the scale and now weigh 160.4 lbs, which is a loss of 1.2 lbs. from last week. That's a nice, realistic number that I'm happy to have. But, man, I gotta say...being about a half pound from the 150's and normal BMI is making me twitchy.
My running is really showing improvement. I have more endurance, for sure. I do sprints/walks for 40 minutes and am able to sprint for around 3 minutes and walk for about 2 (actually, the first sprint I can go for around 4 minutes). Well, I don't use a watch, but I last measured my running against my playlist and found I could sprint through about 1/2 of song "Gates of Steel" and all of "New Rose."
Things I need to improve upon:
1. Stop starting off "hard." Rather, I need to pace myself steadily throughout and work on breathing so I can run for longer stretches without killing me.
2. STRETCH, STRETCH, STRETCH! I admit that I am impatient and hate stretching. But I just gotta do it so that my hips don't feel tore up.
Getting ready for Texas vay-cay. I'm sooo looking forward to seeing old friends and new sights. This is my first plane ride with Bobzilla, so it will be another relationship milestone. Also, our Texas pals eat relatively healthy, so aside from doing a mandatory meal at a Texas BBQ joint, we should be good to go. Famous last words, right? I better rehearse my excuses now in advance of next week's disastrous weigh-in.
