Here's this week's Wednesday weigh-in.  

Following is the breakdown of my weekly workouts...

Thursday 10/27 - 45 min Zumba

Friday 10/28 - 35 min walk, 30 min BodyPump, & 15 min yoga 

Saturday 10/29 - 15 min walk & 30 min Zumba

Wednesday 11/2 - 45 min Zumba & 15 min yoga


Victories so far... 

I can tell I'm building my endurance and reducing my discomfort when walking.  I'm able to walk a little faster or go a bit further.  I'm able to dance a little longer when doing Zumba.      

Following is my weigh in...

Last week's weight: 288.0

This week's weight: 284.8

I'm back down to the previous week's weight.  Overall, I've lost 9.8 pounds.
I'm only 3 weeks in, but I wanted to focus on my measurements instead since it's the beginning of the month.  I'll be checking my measurements on the first Wednesday of each month moving forward.

Here are my changes in measurements...

Neck:  -0.5"
Chest/Bust:  -2" 
Waist: -0.25" 
Hips:  -0.75" 
Upper Arm:  -0.75" 
Forearm:  -0.75" 
Upper Thigh:  -0.75" 
Mid Thigh:  -0" 
Calf:  -0"

I lost a total of 5.75" overall, and most significantly in my bust. At least I know there's some shrinking action taking place!

Wednesday Weigh-In - 10/26/22

 

This week's Wednesday weigh-in will be short and sweet.  

Following is the breakdown of my weekly workouts...

Thursday 10/20 - 30 min walk & 15 min Zumba

Friday 10/21 - 30 min walk 

Saturday 10/22 - 35 min walk & 20 min yoga

Sunday 10/23 - 15 min walk & 32 min Zumba

Monday 10/24 - 31 min walk & 18 min yoga & 24 min walk (I went on two walks, once in the morning, and another walk in the evening)

Tuesday 10/25 - 30 min walk

Wednesday 10/26 - 35 min walk & 20 min strength training (BodyPump)

My Les Mill equipment arrived today - hooray!  I was so excited that I squeezed in a 20 min session after my cardio workout at the gym.  I definitely felt some tension in my back because I don't use those muscles very much and I sit a lot -- but with time I know I'll build strength in my back so it won't hurt as much.  

Following is my weigh in...

Last week's weight: 284.8

This week's weight: 288.0

I weighed in heavier this morning, but I know this is just my body adjusting to all of the changes between my diet and exercise.  I'm not discouraged by the temporary increase.  I'm in this for the long haul!
