Day 3 on my challenges.....
I started this program on Monday so its 5 days for me and guess what...
My weight is up!!
64.2kg's ( 141.5lbs )
I jumped on the scale ready to see 63. something...
I have worked out so hard this week and also not gone over my points or calories...
I did not expect to see a gain.
I was not a happy Marcy...not at all.
Then the trained professional part of my snapped into gear
I have not done weights for the last 4 months
and 10 days ago I added weights into my workouts
MUSCLE WEIGHS MORE THAN FAT..
Its a good thing as you need muscle to burn fat!!
So am still motivated and excited about September...
This morning I headed off to gym early as I had lots to do today and wanted to get my workout in for the day. So easy to find excuses as to why I am not able to train...so happy that I have this challenge as it makes me find ways to train no matter what lies in my day.
I did 30 mins on the elliptical ~ Burned 394 calories ~ HR 127-133
Then did free weights 30 mins ~ Burned 278 calories ~ HR 103-124
Workout for one hour and burned 672 calories.
The photo's with this entry show my breakfast and lunch today.
This evening am going to a Birthday dinner ~ will have to be very careful and make good choices.
I want to climb on that scale tomorrow and see a drop or the same number, I dont want to see another gain....
I did my online group's challenge today...
4 sets of 30 sit ups
4 sets of 8 push ups
Didn't log on till after my workout ( actually logged on very late as had a busy day )
Have not had any treats....
I have been treats free for 4 days now...thats huge for me!!
