This first full week of 'weighting' has been VERY tough for me. I knew I wasn't starving, but I definitely felt like I was going to starve to death on some days. 'My body is just adjusting to not eating all the time,' is what I kept telling myself. Which is true, I found that I munch and munch most days after 3 or 4 pm. I've had to keep myself busy with whatever so that I wouldn't go into the kitchen and eat. I've also discovered that I'm way more of a grouch when it comes to lack of food than when it comes to lack of sleep. I can deal with little sleep, but food, oh boy, I'm a wreck and poor Arthur has suffered through this first week like a champ.
Arthur has been so helpful with watching his portions and giving me workouts to do. He's been awesome. I did cardio twice this week and lifted three times. I think that'll be the new schedule for me. It's easier for me to stay inside and lift than get out and cardio....not to mention the weather is getting pretty cold so that makes the change a little easier too.
I've lost 1.6 pounds. I'm now fluctuating between 179 and 180. I've made Saturday morning my time to be weighed and it feels good. Slow and strong!!
Speaking of slow and strong. On Friday, Arthur and I went on a 'bike ride.' To me a bike ride is a leisurely ride down the street or to the park and back. Arthur's definition of a bike ride is up thousands of hills and up some more hills. Naturally I made it my cardio activity. Round trip it was 6 1/2 miles but since there were so many hills, I considered it 10 miles. Ha!!! I spent so much time going up the hills that it felt like I'd biked that many more miles! In all honestly thought, I really did enjoy myself. It felt great to get out and see beautiful Rexburg...it really is beautiful.
