Okay....so we're on Day 8 of the summer shape up. I'll admit I've not been very good at keeping up with the 30 day shred. I have however spent at least 30 min each day getting my pulse pumping. I invested in 3lb weights to use (instead of the 5lb weights) in hopes that I wont cheat as much during the workout (5lbs is just too heavy to start out with). I also invested in a few new workout clothes that fit better than my old ones (and ones that I hope i get to say are too big some time soon!). And for all that work...I've lost a few lbs:)
Day 1 - 142lbs
Day 8 - 138lbs - woohoo!
It may have been a fluke - we'll see if I can keep this up. I was very good about watching what I eat but have fallen a bit of the wagon the last few days - sweets are just too tempting. I need to just throw out what we have here so I'm not tempted to eat it. I've tried it in moderation but I have little self control when it comes to chocolate so I need to find lower fat/calorie ways to imbibe. Thoughts? Any treats that you've found satisfy your sweet tooth but are not super high in calories and/or fat.
