Some Success!!

So I've been doing this workout think for a little more a month and I have to say, I feel really good. I'm not sure if it's taken this long to get energy from the working out or if it's the amount of water I've been drinking everyday but all of it's working.

It was Labor Day on Monday and we had bar b que of course but I didn't crave a whole bunch of stuff that was bad for me. I did the grilled veggies and added one, asparagus. It would have been better fresh but all we had was frozen. This proved to make the the spears limp. I thought the grill would make them stiffer but alas, we had hot, wilted asparagus. The other veggies where delicious. Also ribs, sausages, chicken and corn. All delicious. I didn't even want to eat a lot. The Taylor boys ate most of the ribs any. I had to tell them to stop so we would have ribs for others guest coming by later in the day.

I even worked out that night. 30 minutes on the gazelle and man did I feel it when I got home. The good thing was this time only my feet felt like concrete instead of the lower half of my body.

The great thing is my clothes are starting to feel bigger. Nothings falling off yet but my pants are definitely loose. I'm 4 pounds lighter too. Yeah! I lost 4 pounds. I know that doesn't sound like much but it's progress. I wish I weighed myself when I started because I don't know what my starting weight was, just what I weight from week to week. I don't think I'll really lose any weight this week because I've had a lot of bread this week, well a lot for what my eating plan calls for. I don't think I'll gain weight, it just won't be the same level of loss.

I started to work weights into my workout but have slacked off for the last two weeks. I've got to figure this thing better if I'm to be successful. 4 pounds off, and a high freshman to go.
