|Date||Change||Total||Work Outs in Week|
So this week I lost 0.2 lbs...very disappointing! I not exactly sure why I did not loose more. I stayed on track point wise, counted everything I ate, and I worked out 6 days. The last time I did Weight Watchers for the first months I consistently lost 1-2 lbs a week. The only thing I am doing differently now is working out more and doing the Couch 2 5k program. So maybe I am gaining muscle and my muscles are sore so they are retaining fluids? I did read on a Couch 2 5k program that a few people lost weight slower while they did it. I am of course not going to stop working out as much or doing the C25k workouts. I am going to take my measurements again tonight to see if maybe I have lost inches. Very frustrating but all I can do is continue doing what I'm doing and hopefully the scale will reflect my hard work soon!
My workouts this week were 3 Couch 2 5k workouts, 1 3 mile brisk walk, 1 Zumba class, and 1 Abs/ Stretching/ Yoga recorded class from Fit TV. My abs are killing me today with the combination of the Abs workout and then doing Zumba yesterday. I must say though being sore from working out is always a good sore.
So yesterday was my first ever Zumba class. I have heard people rave about it and I wanted to find out what this new craze was about. I found a place called Infuzion that has music classes, dance classes, a fitness center, and Zumba classes. The best part is you can pay per class. The class was not just latin music and dance moves it was also hip hop, something I would call more African music and dancing, and then just plain silliness. And by silliness I mean skipping, throwing your arms around, and shaking your butt. At times I felt a little ridiculous but then I looked around and realized we all looked ridiculous. The last 15 minutes of the class were mat exercises and stretches. I overall enjoyed the class because it was up beat, kept me moving for 45 minutes, and had me sweating like crazy. I will definitely be back to take another one of her classes.
This coming week my goal is workout 6 days again. This weekend Matt's friend's and his dad are coming to town for reunion weekend at Duke. Matt has his 10 year reunion from Duke undergrad and his dad has his 40th reunion. I also am going to my friend's bridal shower on Saturday and hanging out with my best friends from High School. My goal is to eat healthy regardless of being at reunion events and bridal showers and like always in these situation make good decisions and portion control. Wish me luck!
