Lose for the Fuse month 1

Month 1: Jan 1-Jan 28

Month 1 tip: Sing while exercising. You breathe deeper, take in more oxygen, improve aerobic ability, and release muscle tension. Tones Abs and simulates circulation.

Okay month 1 is done. Here is the skinny on how it went. (pun intended)

Week 1: I concentrated on counting calories. I started doing the Biggest Loser for the Wii. I lost 3 pounds! Yeah me!

Week 2: I still concentrated on counting calories and did the Biggest Loser for about ½ hr a day. I gained 1 pound back. This is due to the fact that I ate at a Chinese buffet one night for dinner. Then the next night made chicken enchiladas with Velveeta cheese. Yuck!

Week 3: Still counting calories, but I added 30 minutes of jogging in place (Wii fit). I lost 5 pounds! Yeah me!:0)

Week 4: Keeping track of calorie intake and jogging (30 min) and Biggest Loser (about 30 min with warm up and cool down). I like the Wii Fit’s weight tracking better than Biggest Loser. It’s more precise. I’ll be switching to it. I lost 1.8 pounds. Not bad for starting my period. This may be TMI (Too much info) for some, so sorry but weight lose effects every part of you. My period this month was so much lighter and less cramping. Don’t know if it’s from hardly any pop or the fact that I’ve been drinking more water or maybe both.

I’m averaging about 4.2 miles in my 30 minutes of jogging. On Thur. Jan 28 I jogged 4.976 miles. Remember, this is jogging in place. It is a bit harder to road jog.

SOO Drum roll, please: This month I lost a total of 8.8 pound this month. Ending weight 194.2 pounds. Only 66.2 to go!

Feb. goal: lose 11 pounds and jog 5.5 miles.
Check back next around March 1 to see how I did!

Stay healthy,
