Day 105

Few days late posting...
I am back down to where I was...140 to be exact. I don't think I have actually posted my weight, but there you have it folks!
I am not really in any phase. I am eating pretty much what I want, just trying to make healthier decisions. I was getting pretty bored with the same old foods. I would like to go back to phase 1 for another time, but don't know when I am going to do that.
I am really getting more into the weights, so I think I need to proteins to help with muscle building. I can tell a huge difference in my body this week. I am building muscle in my arms. They are starting to have lots of curves - in a good way!
I am pretty happy with where I am at, but would like to keep toning and working on my abs. Man, the Pilate's thing is pretty tough. I don't know that any amount of work is going to get rid of the sagging skin from child birth. A tummy tuck would be nice!
Anyway, just wanted to check in with where I was. I need to watch my sugars. I am eating more of them and find myself craving St. Arbucks all the time!
Yes, the caffeine is what I am craving. I find from working out so hard in the mornings, by afternoon, I am super tired. The caffeine is helping me. I really need a short nap instead. That doesn't happen much these days.
Well....another week and I can't believe my days are in the 100's now~
I wish I had a before and after picture. I am starting to see the difference.

Day 97

I avoided posting on Sunday. It was weigh in day. The scale said I was up 2 lbs. I tried not to get discouraged about it. I do realize that my eating has been a little bit off. I also am taking into account that it was the beginning of my cycle.
I have tried to get back on track with eating. It is hard with all the munchies in my house!
I also had confirmation on Monday that I was ok. In my Yoga class, that I have been attending for almost a year....Monday 3 different people mentioned how great I looked and I had obviously had lost a bunch of weight. That made me feel better. It is funny though, this is the first time any of them had mentioned me loosing weight. I guess it was God timing!
I also started a Weights class on Saturday. I have been doing weights for about a year, and thought I was in pretty good shape. Well, she kicked my bootie on Saturday. My arms were not sore, but my legs were pretty ouchy over the weekend. We didn't even do weights on our legs just lots of squats and lunges. I know where I need to work now!
I had stopped doing weights on my legs because it was hurting my knee too much. The lunges really hurt my knee too, so I need to be careful.
I realized how much I really like working out. I never thought I would say that. I had even started thinking on Monday about maybe working towards being certified to teach Yoga. hmmmm.
It would just be great to get paid to do what I like doing. What a concept!
We shall see. I do see some great improvements in my body, lots more to go, but I am feeling like I am finally moving in the right direction - despite what the scale said this week.
