Though I gained this week, I lost more inches and KNOW I am gaining muscle. While weight watchers was a great start, if I don’t lose weight, I am not really succeeding with them. In order to be successful with them I have to be reach my goal weight, be skinny, and non-muscular instead of focusing on inches, being muscular and healthy. I did all the research and know that muscle weighs MORE than fat, but takes up less space. So I could not reach my “weight” goal but look better then I ever did if I continue with cardio/strength training.
My sister gave me a kettle bell of 8lbs, but I need heavier weights now and bought a 20lb kettle bell on Amazon to be delivered soon. I know I will get in even better shape now with the new one.
My recently tailored pants are swimming on me again.
I walked across a parking lot, up two flights of stairs and, down a long hallway carrying a large bag with laptop and two water bottles, a lunch bag, and my purse and didn’t fall down out of breath. Sure my I had to take a few bigger breaths, but I did it and didn’t need to sit down.
I want to be healthier and stronger for Dino. I don’t want to watch him live life, I want to live it with him. I want to run, jump, skip, and go wild with him. I want to be around for a long time.
I don’t have a better picture of me pre-getting healthier…so I used the one from Christmas. The pic on the right is a week ago. It’s out of focus (courtesy of Hubby) but shows a big difference…better pictures to come.
