uh huh- that was all the glycogen. I'd been being really slack about my diet and got strict with myself again- writing it all down and making sure it added up. I have a feeling that when I weigh myself tomorrow it will be about the same again. I am fitter and feeling more toned but if I'm putting down muscle the scales will not be kind to me tomorrow. I'm thrilled that I'm fitter though! don't get me wrong. My complete lack of fitness and muscle tone really had me scared that I would be watching my kids grow up from the sidelines and not be able to keep up with them at all.
So I'll weigh myself but I don't have high hopes
The big achievement I'm clinging to this week is that last Saturday I pulled up a "Core Rhythms" segment on youtube and struggled through it twice- to make it to 15 mins (a 7:40min segment). I really enjoyed it. I used to dance ballroom and modern latin but haven't for years and would love to get back into it. I've done the same clip almost every day since and kept adding repeats. Tonight I did 46 mins (6 repeats).
I'm planning on keeping on extending that. I'd like to get it to an hour or even longer. I actually think I could have kept going tonight but I don't want to push it too hard too fast. I'm feeling really pumped right now- not a great way to be at 12:15am!
I've ordered the starter pack dvd set too. 4 whole dvds of workouts
I'd love them to arrive by Christmas- a nice little present to myself, but I'm not holding my breath.
Ah well, time to go get myself off to bed. My next post will be a (probably) sad sounding one about not having lost any weight this week...
