Speaking of my new attempts to drop as much as possible in the next 3 weeks, I went to the gym this morning and lifted some weights and did abs. I haven't lifted weights in months, it felt really good to be back in the gym, doing resistance training again.
I'm also tracking again. I was thinking about it at my meeting this morning and I remembered that when we track, we lose more, and we lose more consistently. And since I'm pulling out all the stops...
I was also looking at the little lean meats and proteins section of the booklet and I realized that #1) I have protein to put in protein shakes (if I need more protein for lifting), and 2)there are still a ton of ways to get protein besides meats. So I'm still sticking to my vegan-ish ways. I just feel like it's working; I feel healthier, stronger, and I'm shedding weight easier (although I'm sure you're saying...how can you tell, you're only losing a pound a week....well, I haven't been working that hard either).
Anyway, i'm excited to be on this strict rampage for the next few weeks. Feels good!
