Holy cow…what a rain delay!

So I have been working out all summer….honest, even though I have not been posting about it here.
I have lost about 10 pounds give or take, and feel a bit stronger. I have however been away from the gym for 14 days on vacation…..wow talk about to much!

To much salt
To much carbs
To much alcohol

I am bloat city right now, I can see it in my face and belly…..
I refuse to even get near the scale for at least 2 weeks, it would just bum me out. I know that I probably have minimal fat gain, mostly water so what good would stepping on doom do for me. Just gonna get back in the gym and sweat!

 

Weigh in! June 10, 2009

Today is the weigh in for the sisterhood and I have not budged…..bummer!

I am not too stressed about it, b/c other people have noticed a difference and I got a few comments this week. I think I can even see a small difference. I also know my body and how it reacts to weights, I put on muscle faster than I lose fat. At some point tho, the weight will just suddenly start dropping off. I just hope it will drop during this challenge so I can pull in some big numbers for the team…Go Team Coral!

My leg in improving slightly, no workout yesterday, but I did walk around the block a couple times. No workout today but I ate very moderately. I have a busy day tomorrow so I am skipping the shred and will throw in a walk for sure. I figure I will give my leg one more day and then ease back into the shredding and hope for the best…..

hopefully the scale will budge a little next week….or a lot!

 

I am in Pain people! June 8, 2009

This sucks!

Today was either shred #6 and I was not strong at all. I am having severe pain when I do my cardio only. It is on the side of my calve just below my knee on the outside of my leg. Everytime I jump and come back down it just kills. It definitely got in the way, as far stamina and motivation goes.

I just dont know what it could be….GAH not now! Not during a challenge!
Hopefully it will chill the heck out!

I had a pretty good weekend, and did not eat too poorly. Even though I was face to face with the most delicious flon I have ever had, homemade by a sweet Puerto rican friend.
I just had one small slice…man I wanted to eat more!

I am going to try and workout everyday the week, despite my leg….its my goal!

Go team CORAL!
