Another early post today because I don't want to wait until later because I'm too excited! We swam yesterday - only about 1000 yards, but I was consistent and strong for about all of it! It felt great and I can definitely see an improvement in my swimming. After a week off from a routine workout schedule, I was quite proud of myself! I've been trying to get more comfortable on breathing on both sides, and it's kind of like dribbling a basketball for me - I can do both, but one side is more comfortable. Still working on that dang flip at the end of the lap - getting closer, but the amount of water that goes up my nose could quench the thirst of a small village....so still trying......
ALSO!!! Even though it hasn't been 4 weeks since my last weigh-in, I was curious to see how I had done, especially over vacation with the yummy Dominican food! So HAPPY!!! New weight - 173.2 lbs! That's down 2.4 lbs from my last weigh-in 2 and a half weeks ago and a total loss of 8 lbs! I didn't do all my measurements, but got a little curious and measured my waist too. New waist measurement - 31.5"! That's down another 1.5" from my last weigh-in with a total loss of 3.5" in my waist alone! My next weigh-in and measurement will be March 1st and I can't wait for the results of that.
Little less than 2 weeks ago, I was definitely having some motivation problems and eating and going to the gym were about the last things on my mind (haha, let me correct that....eating is always on my mind - I mean eating healthy wasn't on my mind) A loss of 8 lbs and getting closer to be in the 160s has definitely given my motivation a boost! Being down a dress size sure didn't hurt either!
Ok, ok...enough of the weight loss portion of this journey.....triathlon in 64 days!!! Lots of work to do!
