Amy's Week Two

I'm four pounds down, only 26 more to go!!! I'm pretty proud of myself for actually sticking to the two pounds a week.

This week was interesting. It was my little brother's birthday and we took him out to dinner on Wed. I tried really hard to prepare myself for not eating what I normally eat and after some research I realized I could get at least the burger and not the fries and be fine. Hurray!! I was glad b/c the burger is my favorite part. I did have some fries too!!!! There was also a night where Arthur came home late from work and he still had to eat dinner. I ate two dinners that night. Nothing huge, but none the less, two dinners.

With all the temptation, I feel I'm adapting to not eating as much pretty well. Of course, I still have slip ups, but I think that's normal. Workouts this week have gone smooth and successful. I lifted three times doing 3 sets of 12 reps, squats; 3 sets of 12 reps, power cleans; 3 sets of 12 reps, bicep curls; 3 sets of 15, back row; 3 sets of 12, lunges; 4 sets of 40, ab cross overs. During each one, I have a certain amount of weight on the bar or I'm holding dumbbells. One Tuesday and Thursday I did the bike workout. It's still difficult and hopefully I can add some more length to our ride/workout.
