I'm 2 months into my weight loss challenge and I continue to work hard and see results. Here's the week 8 recap!
-3/23/13: ran on the treadmill for 40 minutes, then did 30 Day Shred level 3
-3/25/13: 30 Day Shred level 3
-3/27/13: ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes, then did 30 Day Shred level 3
-3/29/13: ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes
I finally made it to level 3 of my 30 Day Shred DVD and I was SO not prepared for it!!! These workouts kick my butt so hard every single time I do it. You would think that it would get a little easier as you continue, but it doesn't. It's always difficult, but I stuck with it and I'm almost done so I can be proud of that!
Despite going to the La Boum brunch at L'Enfant Cafe last weekend (if you've never been or don't live in DC, you can find out what La Boum is here), I still managed to do pretty well with my food intake. I let myself indulge a little more with alcohol (because when the champagne bottles come out with sparklers attached, how can you NOT order multiples?!), but since I had been really good about that over the previous 2 weeks, I thought that was okay.
I had been making a lot of dinner/main dish recipes lately, so this week I decided to try something different: breakfast bars! I followed a recipe for Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal bars and they were awesome. They were very light and fluffy, almost a cake-like consistency, but they were very satisfying. I had them for breakfast throughout the week and it was almost like having a granola bar, but better! Recipe to follow later this week.
This week I reached another major milestone with my weight. I stepped on the scale Saturday morning and saw that I had lost
This means that over the last 8 weeks I have lost TEN POUNDS! I'm 2/3 of the way to my weight loss goal and I still have 7 weeks left to lose the remaining 5 pounds. I couldn't be happier about this progress and I feel really great that I've made it this far. Onward and upward!
