I suppose you know I celebrated my birthday yesterday, right? Yep, I turned 56 yesterday. It was a great day!
I haven’t updated here lately. There’s really not much to say. I am still doing Walk Away The Pounds every day. I bought a new DVD that I really like a lot. It’s the Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan.
I really like this dvd because it has a workout for each day or you can “create your own workout” by choosing whichever miles and workouts you want to do. Each mile is color coded (green, yellow, blue, red, purple) In addition there are workouts for your arms, abs, legs, chest & back. There is a warm up session and a cool down session.
I bought mine at my local Meijer. I generally do two sessions a day, one in the morning and one in the evening. I always do at least 3 miles today, but sometimes 4 or 5 miles a day.
So here are the latest pictures. The good news is I can tell a difference in my clothes. The bad news is I’ve lost very little weight. My weight fluctuates a lot, so one time I was down a whopping 3 pounds, but most days I’m only down one or two pounds from my beginning weight. However, that being said, I’m not giving up. I can tell I have a lot more muscle definition.
There are a lot of arm motions/movements in Leslie’s workouts. I’m still modifying them because of my shoulder, but I’m having a few more “good” days.
If you remember, I told you that I have never really dieted. No fad diets or anything like that. I believe in eat less move more. But, I heard about a diet last week on GMA and I’m going to give it a go. It’s called the Fast Diet.
It’s about fasting, but not totally fasting. Women get 500 calories a day while men get 600 calories. That’s two days a week. I am going to give this a try. I haven’t read the book, I’m sort of winging it. lol Today is my first day. I hope to do this two days a week for the month of March to kick start my metabolism. Something has to change, and I don’t really want to diet (give up the foods I love). I want to change my eating habits. I want to continue to eat those foods I love in moderation. I clearly have learned to maintain my weight, I just need to drop these 20 pounds that are nagging me.
I hope YOU are moving more and eating less!
