Today for lunch Britton brought this yummy chicken, pasta (whole wheat), broccoli cooked in a tomatos. It was REALLY good. I cut my portion size to what I would normally call "barely" which was about 2 cups total, maybe not even that much. I chopped fresh vegetables for a salad and ate plenty of fresh raw veggies. It was good!!
Tonight, I am going to figure out diner, probably a chicken breast and some vegetables. I'm not that hungry so I have to tell myself EAT!
Ok, so, the gym. Where do I start? So, we get to the gym and I feel like the fat kid. Wait, I AM the fat kid! Britton was so great to get on the treadmill next to me to encourage me. She usually does those step glider thingies. I knew not to even TRY one of those. That's like committing orthopedic suicide! Anyway, she jogged while I walked. I did a good 30 minutes at the speed of "2.5" whatever that was ha!! It was a pretty good pace for a start.
As you can tell, I am not exactly Miss Peppy workout queen
I started off at 1.5 and ended at the 2.5 My legs started bothering me. Well, I mean, if you had to carry this weight, I guess you'd be bothered too!!!
So, I said, "I'll sit on the stationary bike".
I originally wasn't going to even do it in fear of my knees going on a permanent strike. Well, the machine fascinated me so I decided to give it a go. I broke the first machine! NO JOKE haha! I slid the seat too far back and we couldn't get it to move forward. So, I jumped on the one next to me. I was able to ride for about 10 minutes maybe at the most. My knees were SCREAMING, so I decided to not push it.
This is an absolutely HIDEOUS picture. But, I am all about exposing the good, the bad, and the ugly. Ok, so the ugly is now exposed, I'm ready to promote to the bad!! But, I am working out!!!!!
This is why I am the photographer. I do NOT like to be in front of the lens. Thanks to Britton for capturing this ugly moment, per my request. Who does that? Hey, I am ugly, sweaty, and I am making noises I didn't know I could make, can you capture that for me for my blog? I want to give my viewers the TOTAL experience!!! (You should be thankful you cant scratch n' sniff the photo).
The good news, other then a little wind, nothing else broke! I limped out a little and I am TOTALLY feeling it in my legs, but that's what a pain pill is for! Yes, I will be taking 1/2 of one tonight. I think we will be trying this again tomorrow. I wonder if I can conveniently forget my workout clothes - if Britton will notice that it was intentional?
Tomorrow is the big day!! I am going to weigh in for the FIRST TIME since I started taking Belviq one week ago! I am NERVOUS. I hope I lost at least 2 lbs!! I would be happy with even just 1 pound! I will be recording the weigh in tomorrow. I will also officially tell you all tomorrow what my starting weight is!! So, everyone, start taking bets. 1. What was my starting weight (YOU WILL NOT OFFEND ME: 200, 300, 400, 500 LOL - just take a guess). and 2. How much do you THINK I lost based of what you read on my blog this week.
Feel free to post it in a comment like 500/2 - 500 is the starting and 2 is what I lost. I want to see how in tuned you are. Just a little background information, I am 5'7.
Ready, set, guess................................................
Tune in tomorrow!!!
