Alrighty, time for a check in on the scale and on the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans 21 days challenge.
I'm down just a bit from last Wednesday (which I still think was a freak off-number day), but from last Monday I'm down by 2.8 pounds! I'm psyched about this - mostly because I know I've also gained muscle weight as well. How could I not, when my buddy Donte (from LA Boxing) has been making me run while punching free weights or while carrying a 16 pound sledgehammer?!! I really have to take my measurements and take a picture, though, because I think that will really tell the tale much better than the scale will. (Oh, and also? I fit into a pair of shorts I haven't worn in ages. Hells yeah!)
Now about the challenge:
Working out: check. I've been kicking arse. Seriously. I've been walking, yoga-ing, and boxing like a champ. Plus - at my personal training sessions I've had to run. This might be nothing of significance for most of you (it's just a minute or two of jogging at a time) but before this - I would only run from a fire. Maybe. So the fact that I'm able to run is not only incredible, it's down right shocking.
Eating vegetarian: check. It hasn't been very hard, either. I love seafood (that really helps) and I've tried out a few new recipes with soy protein crumbles. My kids are even digging on it!
Drinking water: check, mostly. I have been filling up my water bottle often, and chugging away. Problem is, I think (judging by this water calculator) that I should be drinking 85-105 ounces of water a day, and ... um ... I so don't. So I still have to keep adding more fill-ups.
Multivitamin: not so much. Well, I did manage to take it 3 times. The results were not favorable, to say the least. I think I may have to resort to Flinstone's chewables, because like a child, the big-girl vitamins made my twummy hwurt.
Seven days down, 14 more to go. I'm feeling good - how about you?
