and Pete fell out, who is left? Well, I have decided to do Phase 1 again, thanks to all of your advice and comments. Thank you all for your input. It will work out really well with my work/school schedule to do it that way also. Instead of doing workouts 1 and 2 for the first 2 weeks and then workouts 3 and 4 for the last 2 weeks, I am going to do all 4 workouts every week, for 4 weeks. That way I will be doing a different one every day and I will get a good variety of exercises. I did not lose anything this week. I was so disappointed that I did not do my measurements either. At least I did not gain though, so that is good I guess. I did stray from the diet plan a bit, but I didn't think it was that bad. So this week I am really going to cut down on calories, dairy, and fat.
Still struggling with water intake too. Just can't seem to get it down. I think that has been an issue for me all of my life. I just don't like drinking water. Going to try and do the 1 cup per hour thing again, maybe the smaller amounts will help get more in me.
I have been extra stressed this past week too. School is nearing finals and I need to wrap up a few projects, work will be shifting gears to head into summer semester, and I have been battling grief all last week. Well this week too, for that matter. I just can't get enough restful sleep and I think that has played a factor in my weight loss too. I go to the doc for my yearly check up on Thursday. I do not remember what I weighed that last time I was in. I am pretty sure I have lost around 15 pounds since then, I will ask the nurse when I go in. Maybe that will be somewhat of a motivator also.
