I weigh in on Saturdays at Weight Watchers. I had planned to consistently post my weigh-in each Wednesday.
Well, that hasn’y happened, so I’m just going to say that I plan to weigh in SOMETIME during the week. And because I missed last week, I owe you two weigh-ins this week.

Change from Highest: -37.8 pounds
Is a pound a week game changing?
Is it sustainable? Am I losing weight?
So therefore, I’ll take it. I AM about to start chiseling away at my points. I’m being MUCH more careful with my fruits, but I’m probably still take in too many calories. I’m going to shave two points off per day next week and see if it makes a difference.
Part of it may be (seriously) that I’ve put on a touch of muscle with Body Revolution. I’ve definitely toned up. I can feel more strength in my legs, and I can feel a big change in my biceps (underneath the fat that coats them).
I write this, having finished Weeks 1 and 2 of Body Revolution, and I have a big change to my workout that I must make.
The first two weeks started off tough but doable. By the end of week two, they were, dare I say it, easy.
That said, I tried Workout #3, and I had to make so many modifications, I am not comfortable progressing.
I am not throwing in the towel, but I am also not proceeding with her schedule. And yet, workouts 1 and 2 are now a bit too easy for me. So, my game plan?
I’m going to do them each once a week at a higher intensity (all challenging moves, heavier weights, et cetera), and I am going to do two body weight workouts on my own. I like the progress I am making and I want to keep moving forward, but my body needs more than Workouts 1 and 2 but it isn’t ready yet for Workouts 3 and 4.
It sucks. I wish I was more fit. But I’m not quitting. I’m just going more slowly than some people.
One aspect of Body Revolution that I do get to keep doing for two more weeks?
Holy crap. Jillian Michaels is an evil monster (and I love her for it).
This is truthfully the hardest 30 minutes of cardio I have EVER done.
I’ll be honest; it’s a little boring. But it is NOT easy.
Especially suicides. If that didn’t send my psyche screaming back to 8th grade PE, nothing will.
