I can't believe week 8 has been and gone. This week I've dropped another 700 grams, and I'm finding that my new habits are becoming just that, habits. I know that I feel better (and look better) when I make time to fit in my 45-minute workouts each day.
I'm finding that my positive food association and knowledge of calorie intake vs energy output is also having a positive affect on the people in my life. My mum asking my opinion on muesli bar snacks whilst shopping - needless to say, she returned them back to the shelf!
This week, I also went shopping for a dress to wear to my brother's wedding next month. I went to City Chic (which is a shop for fuller women), but was pleasantly surprised when the shop assistant gave an extra small, and then proceeded to tell me that XS is equivalent to a size 14 in other shops. Nice to know that my hard work is paying off, in more ways than one!
I have 3.5 weeks left of this round, before I continue this journey on my own, and I want to make the most of this time and lose another 3.8 kgs before the end. I have found that in the last week or so I feel like I'm plodding along with my exercise sessions. So in order to achieve this goal, I know I need to ramp up the intensity of my workouts again. To do this, I am going to push through, keep moving, and only take the designated breaks on Michelle's online videos. This may mean that I need to switch between the intermediate level and the beginner level; but as long as I keep moving, I know I will keep my heart rate up and burn more calories.
