I should have weighed and measured myself yesterday morning. I took a look at myself yesterday and was like, "Wow! Lookin' svelte!" *
Today I woke up, looked in the mirror, and thought, "Who's the blob?" It's incredible the difference a single day can make. Sadly, I did not weigh myself yesterday. So I have to give you all today's measurements. UGH!
I did weights yesterday instead of the double T-25 workout I was supposed to do. I've mentioned before that I don't think there is enough ab or upper body work in this program so far, so I decided to do the two mega-workouts that work over my entire body (the Crunch workouts I mentioned forever ago in my "Reboot Your Body" post) as a "double", which ends up being about two hours, instead of the T25 double (lower and ab intervals), which ends up being about one hour. This way I'll work on building my muscle, which will burn more calories.
I feel it all over today. My legs are burning, I can't touch the floor, and it hurts my whole torso to stretch my core muscles. My back and arms are sore, as well, from my upper body workout. Not to mention I am cramping hard. I am an unfortunate person that has 10 days of PMS, followed by a full 7-8 days of the actual blood moon, and my blood moon started this past week, so can you guess that I had a good week again? I didn't! You are right! I forced myself through every day and fought the urge to just skip a week. I barely made it every day. But you know what? I did it. And that's what counts.
I apologize if it seems like I mention the monthly thing a lot - especially if there are any men that actually read this - but I feel like this is a factor of female fitness that is often overlooked when it comes to our progress. You can eat the right amount of calories, exercise your arse off every day, and get 8 hours of sleep every night, but once a month your hormones will come along and screw you up. This is somehow a fact that every workout program or magazine I have ever seen overlooks. I just want to emphasize that it is okay for our weight loss to take longer because these are factors beyond our control, and you shouldn't beat yourself up if you aren't losing as fast as you think you should be.
Anyhoo, Week 2 (Again) is over. Moving forwards.
*For me, you understand. As svelte as my Easter egg body can look.
