The Taming of the Arse - Week 6 & 7
I returned from the Florida field trip last Sunday and immediately fell into bed. All week long, I went to work then went to bed. I guess I was a wee bit exhausted, eh?
So, I had a break from exercising for a few days last week (the week I was on the field trip there was plenty of walking and snorkeling to keep me busy). Yesterday was the first day that I felt up to doing some exercise. Boy, did it feel good!
I did manage to keep my eating under control for the most part. Unfortunately, the food served at the Sea Camp (during the field trip) was processed carb, after processed carb. And very few veggies to be seen. When you're used to eating whole grains and heaping portions of vegetables, it's a bit of a shock to the system. Thankfully, I have returned to my regular eating habits now and my digestive tract is much happier for it.
I am now seven weeks into my new lifestyle. I have lost six pounds, shaved off some body fat, cleaned up my diet and maintained a regular exercise regimen (for the most part). I am starting to see progress in the mirror and I am definitely stronger. Yay, me!
So, folks, tell me how your journey is progressing.
