This past 5 weeks has really flown by! I really don’t know where the time has gone…or maybe I do…
I’ve been working out at the gym 3-4 nights a week on my strength training.
I’ve been doing Boot Camps on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays with Lou and the rest of my team! By the way…Team Verde Rocks!!! Just sayin…
I’ve been walking at least 3 miles a day 4-5 days a week at my local track. At first, I was walking 5 miles, but decided that was just to much once I started strength training and Boot Camps.
I’ve also been meeting with my personal trainer, Bridgett, on Tuesdays before Boot Camp…Yes, that is a triple whammy on Tuesdays! But together, they are toughening me up…so I try not to refer to them as Torture Tuesdays! But rest assured…I’m dead on Wednesday!
Nutritionally…I’ve made A LOT of changes as well. I eat a ton of vegetables now…rarely anything fried…lean meats…mostly boneless chicken breasts, turkey burgers, and fish. I’ve hit a few bumps along the way with this, but I try not to let it get me down when I do. I take it one meal at a time. However, I do meal prep occasionally since I find it helps to have something quick and easy to heat up when I’m in a rush.
My weight has been doing its own thing since we started this. In the beginning, I dropped a substantial amount. Then, managed to gain almost half of my loss back the following week. I spent the next few weeks losing it all over again. I have NOT seen the consistency on the scale that I anticipated…especially considering all the work I’ve been putting in as well as all the nutritional changes. However, I have seen a dramatic difference in my clothing even when the numbers on the scale increased…my waistline has been decreasing…so I’m trying not to let it discourage me to much. My total loss since Kickoff as of Saturdays weigh in was -18 pounds. 💪
I feel very blessed to be given this opportunity…especially the love and support I receive from my team and my trainers!!! They are, by far, the BEST!!!
I’m also blessed by the support coming in from family, friends, other RBL contestants, and even total strangers who recognize my shirt sometimes. I couldn’t make it without you guys!!!
Again, I apologize for not keeping up with the blog and I will try to do better from here on out! Many Blessings to you and yours!!!
