Two weeks in..

And I'm still going strong.
Still dieting, and still working out. Just about everyday I might add. Mostly I do Jillian's DVD, and just for an extra kick in the butt I'll do Billy's once a week. I'm sore. And I still fucking loath working out, but I'm doing it.

I think the reason I am still so sore is because I have been stretching wrong. Who knew? Apparently, I should not have been doing static stretching BEFORE my workouts. I'd always been taught that those stretches were going to help me. I was wrong. I should have been doing dynamic stretching beforehand and static stretching afterwords. Oops! My bad. Oh well, ya live and ya learn. I've corrected my stretching routine, and hopefully over the next week the soreness will fade. Goddess, I hope so!

Ready for this?

I've lost 7 pounds! And while its not even close to my goal amount, its something. And something, is gooooood. What I forgot to do was measure myself when I first started. I think my clothes feel different, but I'm not sure. Right now, the only thing I have to go by is the scale. Its a love/hate relationship. (Very much like the love/hate I feel for Jillian.)
So tonight at work I am going to buy a measuring tape and start keeping track of that as well. Y'know...cause its fun to have one more thing to obsess over.

I've got a big goal...and I'm on my way to reaching it.

I am so happy that you're happy and feeling good. I am smiling from ear to ear (and you know how hard smiles come to me these days).

Sarah said...

Gwen- Thanks babe! I'm glad you're smiling for me, cause right now all I got is a grimace. But, I guess...its a good grimace?

7 pounds? THAT IS FREAKIN' AWESOME! Congrats!!

And um, I Have no idea what those two types of stretches are. ;-P

Sarah said...

April- Thanks! Basically static stretches are the ones where you hold the stretch. Dynamic stretching is where you use big movements to loosen muscles.
