April 19th 2012 is the day I decided to change my life for the better. It's been a slow process, but I am down 16 pounds, and one pant size. I don't feel the difference or see it when I look at myself, but I can see it when I look at my before picture, and my current picture. For a few weeks now the progress has been slow, if not halted. I knew the plateau was coming, but I wasn't expecting it so soon. My trainer told me my body will get used to the routine if I continue on it. So now it's time for a change. Just for now. Weight Watchers has been a great tool, but I need to get serious. In addition to Weight Watchers, I have been working out twice a week, mainly doing weights. For one week (starting July 10th), I am going to stick to water only. No soda, no juice, and no wine
(sigh). I have also decided on a strict diet. Don't think for one second I'm going to starve myself. On the contrary, I'm going to eat more! However, I will be staying away from processed breads and pasta this week and enjoy fresher foods, like salads, veggies, and fruits! That week I plan to work out 5 days, and doing more cardio than weights. Three at the gym and two at home (planks and stairs, he we come!). Maybe by switching my life up I will shock my body back into gear!
