Still no weight loss but I have upped my weights to 14 pounds instead of 8 pounds. I wish I could have only gone up 2 pounds but the bars themselves weigh 4 pounds and when you add 10 more pounds to them it becomes 14. Oh wow look at that math!! LOL!! Yes I am typing to myself....LMAO!!
I was sore after my strength training but not as bad as it could have been so that means progress in my books!
I am trying this carb busting like supplement called IC-5. It is suppose to convert your carbs into energy instead of fat. The first day I lost 2 pounds but had also ran 3.2 miles so it could have been sweat weight loss instead of real weight loss because I was back up again.
I'm not giving up but I am beginning to accept that my butt will always be a size 14. I do want to lose the 10 pounds I have gained since knee surgery and then just become strong and fit. If I get to a size 12 I will celebrate but if I remain at a size 14 then I will just embrace my body and be thankful for the things I can do at my size.
1. I can mountain bike for 13 miles with only having to walk my bike in a few spots.
2. I can run a 5k in 45 minutes.
3. I can ski black diamonds.
4. I can hike for 4 hours.
5. I can workout for 2 hours hard and not feel dead.
These are a few things I can do at my size and I am happy with these achievements. As long as I stay active and keep pushing myself these things will only improve!!
