Day 4 -
Weight: 122.2 lbs
Well, I did it. I switched to level 2 last night and my body may regret it later today. I can’t believe how much harder and strenuous it is.
I really struggled through the whole 20- minute workout. But no matter how hard it was I refused to stop. I was way more sweaty and out of breath compared to level 1. I wonder if I should go back to level 1 until I have more endurance or if I should just stay on level 2?
Let’s talk about weight for a minute. I’ve lost a little over one pound. This is fine with me. I know because I have less to lose that it won’t come off as fast. And for the record I’m not necessarily trying to lose a bunch of weight. I’m just interested in my wardrobe fitting again. You see, I’ve noticed that I’ve gained weight in my belly. I really truly look like I’m pregnant. You should see the belly at night! Last night I could have passed for a woman who is halfway through a pregnancy. That’s because I haven’t gained weight elsewhere so it just looks like a pregnant belly (note: I am NOT pregnant!). It’s the weirdest thing. I wonder how much of it is bloat and water weight after the day is over. I don’t understand it.
Probably the hardest thing to deal with is making a lifestyle change. Don’t hate me. I was one of those girls who never had to pay attention to eating and exercise. But I think my metabolism must be changing because it seems to matter now. My bad habits have finally caught up to me and I have to make a change.
Day 5 is tonight! What do you think? Stay on level 2 or move back to level 1?
