Pretty in Dayton - Weekly Weight Loss Update

This was the week I've been weighting for! Reader Amber passed onto me an article about the "Wooshing" of Fat and I had the feeling somewhere along this week my cells let go of a bunch of water and/or fat. I really felt successful this week. I think feeling like that also pushed me further in my workouts.

In the interest of focusing more attention to my diet, I read a book this week called Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It by Gary Taubes.  Basically, that means I've been learning a lot about sugar, carbohydrates, and how hormones tell your body to let go of fat (or not). I will be writing up my thoughts on this book in another post, but if you're at all interested in this topic I suggest you check it out.

On to the report!

Weight: 156.0 lbs (-2.8 lbs)

A note to the number 156: Hello 156! I've seen you before... But I am more than happy to see you again! I just hope it's a short acquaintance and that I never have to see you again... in a favorable way (I like you much better than 157).

Next Week...
I will be finishing TurboFire this week. You will also be getting a review of that from me. I think in the mean time, I'm going to add a bit of ChaLEAN Extreme back into my workout routine because I want to get back to focusing on muscle maintenance and building, hopefully some more toning.

Reflecting a bit... this past week I've noticed the tone in my arms increasing quite a bit but more so my legs, particularly the area in the thighs. I'm loving what I'm seeing. I think it might be due to my increased effort at the plyometrics (jumping) portion of TurboFire. I purchased a mini skirt from Hautelook, but it arrived with a defective zipper. It was very cool, had patchwork (non-shiny) sequins all over it. Quite interesting. I'm very dissapointed because I wanted to show my new legs off!
