It seems like everyone weighs in on Wednesdays, and I guess now I will too. Its been 37 days since I’ve started this blog and started my 1 week picture progress. Well this past week I worked hard, ate right and even started running regularly.
Unfortunately I am disappointed in my results I feel like one of those biggest loser contestants that has a bad weigh in.
These past 7 days I have kept my calorie intake to about 1200-1300 and I made sure to eat good foods, lots of fiber and protein. I did row machine workouts, running on the other days and alternated between leg and upper body strength training. Its hard to see little results (number wise) when you work your butt off and not feel demotivated. But hey maybe next week I’ll have a better weigh in.
