So, this morning was my rest day. One complete day of rest..no work outs of any kind. No mowing the lawn, no walking the dog, no heavy cleaning...just rest. Its hard for me to rest, i love my workouts and look forward to them. :)
After watching a lifetime movie(it was really good too,lol) i decided to take a quick shower. We have a full length mirror in our bathroom and I noticed some changes in my body. My legs are becoming leaner, there is less visible fat. My stomach is getting smaller and the skin is getting looser ( i wish i could say i don't have stomach skin,hehehe) and just an over all appearance of more muscle. It was a nice moment, i actually smiled at myself in the mirror.
Sundays free day didn't go too bad but I didn't like a feeling i started having towards the end of the day. A feeling of urgency to eat more... i don't like that. That 'feeling' is something im trying to avoid. Im seriously thinking of just counting calories that day and maybe increasing it a little so i can have more control. Most online calorie calculators tell me to eat around 1400-1700 calories in order to lose 1lb a week and 2200 to maintain my weight. I think if i eat 2200 on Sunday i could still eat a little more and still keep that 'control' feeling. What do you guys think? Any thoughts?
I just don't want my weight loss to slow down for any reason...im working to hard right now.
