This week was one of the hardest in terms of the whole “sugar free” challenge. You’d be surprised where added sugar is hiding. I was pretty disappointed over the fact that I didn’t get to drink my Bolthouse Farms Mocha Cappuccino protein drink (40g added sugar PER SERVING… there’s two servings per bottle, whaaaaat).
I haven’t missed a workout yet, which I’m pretty pleased about – though I think yesterday’s ab session was a little meh, due to my anxiety being absolutely insane. Before I get into my measurements and weight, I wanted to share the workouts I did this week (and will do today).
Wednesday I did my Upper Body Slay (and I have that planned for today as well)
Thursday I did the same as Tuesday’s workout, except with less oomph.
Now it’s time to get into what we’ve all be waiting for. My weight: it flickered between 154 and 156. Af first I was worried because…. um… hello, I’ve been working out, moving more, sorta sleeping regularly. But I gained? Then it sunk in… dude, you’ve been working out. Weighted workouts, resistance, cardio. Of course you gained. Your muscles are probably growing, silly! Admittedly I haven’t eaten much this week, which is a problem that I need to sort out as well.
So while I lost fat in my arms (thank goodness), I gained muscle in my legs! I’ve been doing a lot more kitchen cardio and I walk outdoors when I can.
Inches: -1.5 (overall)
I’m feeling a lot more motivated seeing that progress, but the biggest challenge is going to be NOT OBSESSING.
