I can’t believe another week has gone by. I’m really getting use to the routine of watching what I eat, working out regularly, and living this new life Kevin has started me out in. Pizza still looms everywhere (seemingly) but I have gotten stronger and this week I just avoided the cafeteria all together on pizza Friday.
This morning I weighed in at 146.4. So, still heading in the right direction. Kevin and I have been trying to figure out what my target weight should be. It’s nice to have someone knowledgeable to talk to about this; someone who knows what realistically I should be shooting for. Me, I’m still dreaming of weighing what I did when I was 18, but realistically I’ll be very happy with another 10-12 lbs gone. Something that he pointed out to me, which makes a lot of sense, is that I have a lot more muscle now. So I have to take that into account when I think of the numbers. And something he’s been saying from day one is that I shouldn’t be so focused on the numbers anyway. How are my clothes fitting? How am I feeling? How are the weekly pictures looking? These things are more evidence of success than the numbers.
This week Kevin and I trained twice. Again, he was pushing me just a bit further than what I had gotten comfortable with. Instead of presses with 30lb weights, I was using 35lbs. It’s so good to have him pushing me that little bit further once he recognizes that I’ve become too comfortable with what we had been doing. I can be a bit lazy sometimes, and not want to put forth the extra effort to push it to the next level. He keeps me going forward, not letting me get lazy.
Another aspect of this was when he had me doing exercises that seemed daunting; he did them along side me – which really helped me get through them. Sometimes you need to feel like someone else is suffering with you to get yourself to see it through. One of these things was the bike intervals that we did at the end of our last workout. I HATE the bike, and I HATE intervals. But they are a necessary evil. So Kevin jumped on the bike next to me and said that he would do it too. It was nice to see him subjected to the torture too.
And so another week begins. I hope to see you all again from the other side of 145. ☺ Have a good week!
