Week one is done.
I'm down a pound but I'm pretty sure it's just water weight. I can fluctuate 1-3 pounds on a weekly basis without changing anything so I'm not really excited about that one pound.
Don't get me wrong, I know I wasn't magically going to drop 5 pounds the first week. I honestly only want to lose 10-12 pounds total, which I'm starting to think won't happen. I'm putting on more muscle which I know weights more, so I'm trying my best not to focus on the weight but how I look/feel.
One thing I'm not too excited about is that I'm not burning as many calories as I was doing 9rounds. I'm not sure if I'm just not going 100% because I'm figuring out the different moves, or if it is more muscle building rather then moving, moving, moving like the 30 minuets of 9rounds was.
I do need to work more on my diet (I know this is a huge part of getting in shape). I have cut out alcohol during the week and have kept it to one or two drinks on the weekends. And I maybe will have a few sips of soda a week (I can't help when Tyler pops a cherry coke... I have to sneak a sip). I now just need to work on cutting out the cookies....
Tyler did get me new shoes which I'm excited about! We both needed cross trainers instead of running shoes and he picked me out these all on his own!
So fingers crossed that the shoes will make a difference! We'll see... I'm excited for the next 12 weeks and optimistic! 6 pack abs here I come!
