I only dropped 0.8 of a pound
Even though I've been busting myself on the treadmill lately this past week, ugh.
This past week, I did three days of intense walking/hiking on the treadmill, took a easy day off, then back to another 2 days of challenging hiking on the treadmill, then took the third day off completely from exercise (sunday). I also did a leg work dvd three times this past week on alternate days as well. And I've been feeling quite a bit of muscle developing in my legs as a result of hiking this past month or 2.
I'm still keeping my calories in check and the amount of water I drink (though I admit I have had another cup or 2 to drink before and after my workouts lately), and my sodium is on the lower end of the scale since I don't eat a lot of processed foods but fresh or frozen... tsk.
So I'm still 189 lbs.
My goal is to lose 25 lbs by Memorial Day weekend. According to BMI calculator, if I lose another 25 lbs by Memorial Day weekend, it would mean I'm technically NO LONGER overweight!
I do realize 0.8 of a lb is better than nothing and some people here going through plateaus would LUV dropping even this amount.
It's just a little bit discouraging when you alternate hard/easy exercises sessions in the hopes of losing another 2 lbs.
I do hope the following week I can lose more than 0.8 of a pound!
