Week one wrap up

Submitted by Hillary on Tue, 03/06/2007 - 8:58pm.

The first week of my six-week burst went fairly well. I stuck to my healthy eating goals pretty well. I stayed away from the junk food and practiced good portion control. I exercised five out of the seven days, taking one night off because I got home late, and one night because I had bruised my foot pretty and it needed a break. I even tried that spinning class.

Unfortunately, it didn’t have the desired effect – I didn’t lose a single pound. At this point, I’m hoping the burst will have a cumulative effect. I do tend to gap down in weight, so hopefully I’ll drop a couple of pounds three weeks in or something. Although, I know I won’t get to work out Thursday or Friday this week, and I probably won’t get to work out Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Thursday is my birthday, and while I could “give myself the gift of fitness” or some such corny thing and actually go to the gym after work, I think I’d prefer to give myself the gift of Indian food for dinner and snuggling by the fire with my husband instead. Friday night I promised to go to a Pampered Chef party that my mom’s friend is having, and I know there’s no way I’ll get to work out that night. And then next week I have work-related dinners two nights. Theoretically if those end early enough, I might get to work out. We’ll see.

I wish had better news to report, but I still have confidence in the burst plan. You'll see.
