I have been waking up between 5:30 and 5:45 most mornings in order to workout. It’s been a great feeling to know that I can discipline myself to do this – I am not a morning person at all!!
Today’s workout was probably the most fun! When I woke up, it was raining outside. Actually, I didn’t even realize this until I went outside to begin my routine.
I went ahead with my “marine workout“, and I really enjoyed myself. This was also the best that I’ve felt while running (although, I still look pathetic out there)! The cold rain falling on my face and arms felt great. It helped to keep me energized when my body wanted to quit.
Then I went inside and changed my sneakers (didn’t want to get the carpets wet and dirty) and went through the Slim In 6 DVD. Then, back outside again for another short run in the rain!
After my workout was the big moment…
Week 1 Weigh In
I have to admit that is wasn’t a very dramatic moment, since I weigh myself every day! However, I was excited because it would be “official” today – one week after finding out that I gained 13lbs since the first Fat Guy Challenge!
After completely slacking off leading up, during, and after our move, I was up to 287lbs!!! That means that after losing 16lbs during my first challenge, I gained all but 3 of them back.
Well, this morning when I got on the scale after my rain run, I weighed…
That means I lost 7lbs in the last 7 days! I know that I won’t be able to continue losing 1lb per day, but I think this was a good start.
I definitely won’t let this get to my head, since I have a looooooooooong road ahead of me, and I have failed in the past after great starts. I’ll just be sure to stay consistent with all of my workouts, succeeding in the push ups challenge, and eating healthy.
I may be working out with my trainer tomorrow, so I’ll let you know how that goes.
