i was grumpy grumpy last night. i went to the gym anyways, just to get away from the house for a while. i had planned to do some sprints on the treadmill but there werent any open, so i headed for my elliptical. i did a little bit of interval training, switching between an 8/8 to an 11/11 and back, then to a 6/9 for a while to try and use some different muscle groups. i hope it worked, i am a little stiff this morning.
36 minutes 3.26 miles 415 calories
this morning i did not dread weighing myself. i have been checking my weight every other day or so to not be surprised today, and to help stay on track. last week i weighed 166.4 pounds, and this morning i weigh 164 pounds. thats a 2.4 pound loss.
i still have 16 pounds to get to my goal of 148 by the 25th. thats a little more than 3 pounds a week. its doable, but i know that i might not make it. with our busy schedules, i know i might not have the time to get to the gym, and that every bite i eat will determine if i get there or not. it feels strange to be so close though.
another thing i have been thinking about, is that i really want to gain some more muscle. i know that would have helped a long time ago to loose more fat, but i just dont know what im doing. i think that i would really benefit from a short routine several days a week, and ive asked jason if on a saturday, or evening sometime we could leave the kids and he could show me around the weight room at the rec. i would like for that to happen soon, but im not sure it will. i might have better luck trying to schedule a personal trainer session, though i hate meeting new people that way. its all on the table though. thats the next step for staying skinny.
