This was a much better day!
Whew! My fall off the wagon on Sunday didn’t hurt me that much!
I went to work out at Curves today – I go on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (though I think I’m going to add a day). Since I officially began the Cambridge Diet last Tuesday (at which point I weighed myself for a “starting point”) I decided to see how things were going after one week on the program. Wow! Was I happy! I was hoping for 5-7 pounds in my first week. I figured that would be a pretty good start. With how much my system has been flushing itself this past week (because of all the water I’m drinking) I figured I would lose a lot of water weight.
It turns out that I lost TEN…yes, TEN…pounds in the last week!! That takes my total (since April 2) to 15 pounds! That is so awesome! I had set a personal goal of 25 pounds by the time GCLS rolls around (July 19). If I can’t lose the additional 10 pounds – plus some – by then, then I’m just useless. LOL
Another thing I’m very happy about is that I DECIMATED the abductor/adductor machine during the work out. For those of you who don’t know what that is, here’s a photo:
This sucker is BRUTAL! But today, I surpassed my goal on the damned thing! The machine we have doesn’t quite look like an erector set like the one above – the Curves abductor/adductor is much simpler. But the idea is the same. I’ve determined that the machine is, in fact, the Devil. As such, I encourage everyone to smite it! I will not let it beat me!!
Let’s see what the next few weeks bring for me!
