So there is more good news to share today. I weighed in at 205! This is the lowest I have ever been and way excited to report it. Is there a reason for why I lost another 2 pounds. Well I think there is and it has to do with what I thought was a mistake.
It started last night after my blog. In yesterdays blog, I stated that I was still hungry and might eat again. Well that was an understatement. I ate another plate of salad, three more somewhat small slices of pizza (gluten free), and some dark chocolate. It was a lot of food. They were good choices for the most part but it was a lot of food. I was seriously hungry. And that was the main thing. I was hungry. I did not stuff myself but I did get full–finally.
So the next day I fasted up until my workout. I did my usual 4 mile run. My run was not a great success. I did make the whole 4 miles in under 40 minutes, I had to take a break at the 2 mile mark. I waked and ran another quarter mile. Then being very upset with myself, I ran the remainder. This is what I looked like afterword.
I was really sweaty.
After this I did a HIIT workout. Some stuff on the latter, some jump-rope, and stepper exercises. My legs were killing me.
Now it was time to face the music. I had done everything I could do. I had to get on the scale. I was not expecting it to be too bad but I did expect to gain weight. But I did not. In fact, I was down a pound and a half to two pounds. The number actually hit 204.5 and flickered up to 205. I was elated.
Before I broke my fast I took another picture in my goal shirt. So I’m down six pounds and here are the two pictures side by side. The one on the left is from today.
I finally broke my fast after 22 hours. Had a bunch of chicken and salad. I had a BUNCH of chicken and salad. Also, a little chips and salsa. Low-carb-organic and no GMO.
After dinner I did another workout because I am planning on having a high-carb day tomorrow in the afternoon. So I walked for 15 minutes and did a bit of a shoulder workout. Tomorrow is also a rest day. I really do not like rest days.
