Today ends week 1 of my 12 week challenge to be half my goal weight before my cruise to Hawaii. I ended my week with a 2 hour workout at the gym. I did some stretches, lunges, squats and some light arms. I jogged one mile and walked one mile on the treadmill burning 200 calories then I did another miles/20 minutes on the Arc burning another 184 calories. And guess what? I could have kept on going, I honestly still had tons of energy left! I started doing 3/4 of cup of oatmeal with a little cinnamon and equal and it holds me till lunch. I know it's not band friendly so I may not be able to keep eating once I get a few more fills, but right now, I am able to eat everything and its healthy.
No change on the scale yet. This morning I picked up Mr. Scale and banished him outside in the back garage. My husband wanted to know why and I told him I was mad at the scale. He just shook his head, rolled his eyes and laughed. He thinks I am a maniac, maybe I am! LOL
