Weight loss progress: Week 2
I’m so excited! This week I’ve lost
2.87 lbs 1,3 kg., and I’m so relieved! This means I’ve lost 3.53 lbs 1,6 kg. in total and are that much closer to my first weight loss goal.
For the past week I’ve managed to stay away from sweets and I’ve really made an effort to eat healty and stay on track. I’ve also managed to do 30 minutes of Just Dance every day, which is SO much fun. Some time during the next week I’ll increase the dancing time to an hour, because I feel like I can handle it, but don’t want to push too hard just yet. Oh, by the way – the picture is of one of my post workout snacks.. Looks really pleasing to the eye, doesn’t it? It roughly contains 172 calories, so that’s not bad.
What I still need to do
- Take “before” pictures (I’m so gonna regret it if I don’t do it)
- Measure my entire body (waist, hip, arms, etc.)
- Lose that
16.69 lbs8,4 kg. so I can book my next holiday!! (I might be cheating a little bit on that goal, because I’m actually going away on holiday mid-July, but that’s not “my own” vacation).
What I plan to do when I’ve lost 20 lbs
First of all I want to celebrate! Reaching the first milestone has to feel like a party! 😉
Other than that I promised a good friend of mine that we should do a Color Run, just because it looks really fun. But in order to do so, we both feel that we have to be able to run the distance. We know that the event isn’t your typical running event, and that it’s all about having fun and being colorful. But it would just feel good to be able to run, so that’s the plan!
My biggest concern about running at this early stage is if it’s safe. Being obese (still hate that word) puts a lot of extra pressure on your knees and body in general when running, and I don’t know how my body will handle it. That’s why I want to go at it with caution. I’ve found an app that claims to make you able to run 5K in 8 weeks, so I’m gonna give that a try. The app is called “Zombies, Run!” and might actually be a tad silly, but if it works, it works!
OH! And I finally received my workout pants and the fit is absolutely perfect!
