Just Keep Going… {Weight-Loss Post #2}

Week one && counting… Just keep going…

Okay – so week one of my BODY TRANSFORMATION is done. I don’t want to call this a diet, diets never work for me. Actually, this past week has gone okay – NOT great by any means; but okay.

I wrote last week about DDPyoga – I’ve stuck to it pretty well the past 10 days. According to the manual, I should only be working out three days a week – but that’s just ridiculous. DDP says to make the workouts “your own” – which pretty much just means, {workout at least three times a week, and however many times you can handle}. I still haven’t received my DVD’s, but DDP allows people who have purchased the DVD’s to watch the first two workout’s digitally – which is a great advantage, because I’m so damn impatient.
I must say that I’ve been a little down on myself because I’m not losing as quickly as I usually do. Now, I’m NOT following DDP’s nutrition plan, I don’t see it as a realistic change in my life. I’m a very picky eater, and I just don’t like to eat food that I won’t enjoy. However, I am counting calories using myfitnesspal, and watching my proportions. I’m adding veggies and fruits {a huge change for me} && I just bought a nutribullet – so I will be juicing {or blending}.
I have dieted before using myfitnesspal – and no exercise; && lose weight pretty quickly. Usually at least 5lbs in the first week alone. My guess is that the working out is screwing with my muscles and my body is holding in water due to being sore {I’ve done some research}. I’m building muscle and it shows on the scale. I’m hoping that in a couple weeks, my body will adapt and the scale will start to decline. I’m not giving up or anything – just a little defeated.
On another note; I can feel the differences in my body already – my legs are much stronger than in the beginning. When I first began the program {a week ago} my heart rate would summit above my target heart rate, I would have to modify the position in order to get my heart rate in zone, today – I was in full lunge position and I actually had to work a little bit harder to keep my heart rate up! It was kind of crazy – but sorta cool! I like knowing that my body is getting stronger – and that things are happening, even when I don’t see it on the scale.
For now, I will just keep doing what I’m doing – because it seems to be working!
