Two days to weigh in. This morning I recorded no change from last week.
No change is WAY better than having a gain, which I experienced initially... it was just a small gain, but a gain none the less.
As I understood, I should have expected to gain up to about 6 pounds or so right after I got off the shot. It didn't happen, so I'll take my small victory!

I worked out Saturday at the gym with my sister, we did 4 reps of 1/4 mile at rapid pace (5-5.5mph), then we did HIIT sets of squats, lunges and misc exercises. We chose three exercises, then we ran again.. It was a hard workout, and my body has felt it all week.
Sunday was Easter; after church my husband went to sleep, he's a new Sheriff's Deputy and works graves. I headed north about an hour to get my daughter. She stayed the night with her cousins.
Delicia, my sister, was thinking I was going to be coming by much later, so to keep me around she invited me over to her friends Easter celebration. I did very well, no sweets, I had some white turkey, a fruit mix-up and salad. I mingled with old people, and watched as they ate peanut m&m's. It wasn't easy.
When we got back to her house I tried talking her out of the planned workout; she wasn't havin' it.
|EXAMPLE OF HIIT|
Monday I managed to go on a walk with my husband, just around the block with the dog. That was all I had in me.
Tuesday I was in the gym, I ran......
Speaking of Running...
|I ran at 4.5 the entire time, 13:17|
|14:03! I finished an ENTIRE MILE in 14:03!! I used to wog, and it would take about 15-20 minutes to complete a mile. I was so proud.|
and then I got better.. when I tried harder.. April 14th:
|A little faster..more importantly though, I did it again!!|
|Now we're talkin' I took almost an entire 2 minutes off of my "best" time!!|
|5.0 for a mile. This is so mental. The mental is WAY more difficult than the pain in my legs.|
|I ran at 5.5 for most of this.. it averages out..|
Interesting thing about my time.. my daughter has to run at school for a grade; the time I got would be a D!! I was running like I stole something!!

Wednesday my husband and I went on a date, we drove about an hour south, to try a new restaurant, with food he'd enjoyed in Japan when he lived there. The ramen was SO good, fresh noodles. I had only one bite of the noodles, but I drank ALL of the broth, and ate the veggies. I can't imagine the salt was good for me, but it was very good.
Thursday I hit the gym. I did a treadmill wod, like the one I did with my sister on Saturday.
Here I am.. hoping for a loss... so thankful it's Friday.
