Today is day seven of my Get Fit challenge. I decided to do a weekly update on how things are going. I've lost about 5 lbs this last week. It may be slightly more as we've had some scale issues around here and the scale I was using every day is not working anymore. Good thing we have another, plus the Wii Fit which also weighs you.
I'm doing really well on all of the goals I set for myself. Areas to improve on would be my journaling, and last night I didn't do all of the dishes.
The best part is how good I feel. Cutting out soda and exercising has made such a difference in how I feel. I feel like a new person, I just have to be patient until I look like a new person too. It's funny to talk about how good I am feeling, because I am pretty sore from using muscles that I forgot I had.
I inadvertently bought a Goal shirt for myself. It looked like it would fit at the store, but it's just a smidge too tight in certain areas. So it looks like I have my first small reward for myself, when it fits. I think I'll try it on every Wednesday to see my progress over time. I'll bet that realistically it won't fit for about 6 weeks, since that is how long it takes for your body to start changing shape.
Oh and thanks to Danya, I've been drinking 16 ounces of water as soon as I get up in the morning. I don't know for sure that it works, but it sure makes your tummy grumble. I think that is a good sign.
