Our Weight Loss Journey | Week 007

Our Weight Loss Journey | Week 007

Almost two months in and we’ve had a lot of progress!

This week I broke my laziness streak and hit strength training hard…a little too hard. I found a workout that I could do in our second floor apartment and not upset the neighbors again! It’s mostly floor exercises, with a set of jumping jacks I don’t do and mountain climbers I didn’t get to. I ended up working out until my legs felt like jello, which wasn’t the best idea…I imagine it’ll take 4 days for me to fully recover. Here’s the workout I did:

Set #1 (repeat three times)
– 10 glute bridges
– 10 glute marches (each side)
– 10 shoulder taps (each side)

Set #2 (repeat three times)
– 20 squats
– 10 pushups

Set #3 (repeat three times)
– reverse lunges 15 per side
– 25 tricep dips
– 25 jumping jacks

Set #4 (repeat three times)
– side plank 20 seconds each side
– bicycle crunches 15 each side
– 10 leg lowers
– 25 mountain climbers

Again I got through set #3 and stopped, but this is the workout I’ll be training with. As far as food in concerned, I’m being extremely strict about my fat intake and hoping I can see some better results (like what Trevor’s experiencing) by doing that.

This past week we went out to eat with my family and I paid dearly for it with my weight. It was a home style restaurant and I even had the salad bar, but overdid it on desserts(my weakness, and I did have fewer than what I would have normally had). I gained 2 lbs mid week and only managed to lose about half a pound total from last weeks weight by today. Oh well, at least I still made progress.
