I’VE LOST 10 POUNDS!! I’VE LOST 10 POUNDS!! I’VE LOST 10 POUNDS!!Posted: January 24, 2012
I don’t really have much to say today except that I LOST 10 LBS!!!! *Insert random white girl dance here*
As excited as I am (can you tell?) I have to say, I’m not as happy as I thought I would be. I almost feel like, ok, I lost all the garbage I put on over the holidays, NOW I’m at a decent starting weight and can really start working on my body. Does that make sense? Am I crazy? Losing these 10 have not been easy (I miss beer and wings and going out and cheese and pizza and fries), but I think the hard hard work is still ahead of me.
In other news, I can now do 5 real pushups. Woop woop, right? Are you thinking I’m lame and weak? I see your face. I could never ever, ever ever, ever do pushups. In high school during gym I blamed it on my wrist ( I had a cyst, which I finally got removed, but I couldn’t put a lot of weight on it), but I was also just weak. I can barely do 10 weiney girlie pushups.But today, since this is the start of the last week of my strength training program for this month, I wanted to test myself. Holy crap, I busted out 5 of those bad boys! I was super impressed. I feel like my arms are tighter feeling, but not looking. I was at the pens game on Sunday (where I had water. Just water. No beer or snacks. Dedication people) and I forget how but I touched my upper arm, near the shoulder and it felt hard. That’s new. Thats exactly what I said out loud and got weird looks from people around me. Next week is our first “cut back week” but we are also testing baselines of fitness to determine how our training needs to go. I’m nervous about this. I’m aware I have no real control over it at this point, but I want to do well, if thats even possible? I also am very competitive so I better be fitter than Matt (my Iron buddy. I dragged him into this 3 years ago and now we are becoming Ironman. Awe. Woof. Don’t start.)
I think that’s pretty much all I have today. Sorry the post was so lame, just wanted to share some updated progress. Any suggestions how I could liven this sucker up? I think I have 3 readers (Hey Sue, Amy, and Alisa) and God knows I dont want you guys to be bored.
