End of Week 2

Monday, February 12, 2007

Well two weeks down and still going strong. I managed to loose another 2.6 pounds this week, and I'm very pleased with it. I wasn't going to take my measurements again until the first of the month, but couldnt' wait, so I went ahead and took them again. My waist is down an inch, my hips down two (Although I might not have gotten the tape in the exact same spot.) and my bust is down a half inch. I don't really expect to loose much on my bust. The last time I lost a bunch of weight the bust stayed fairly close to the same.

I've been getting my exersize in, and I hate the weight training. It just isn't as enjoyable as getting my cardio in. Next week I'm supposed to be increasing my MWF morning workout. Originally I was going to just increase my yoga to 45 minutes, but now I'm considering adding some bellydance drills after my 20 minute yoga practice. The bellydance is stronger cardio, so more beneficial and the real question is, should I increase the yoga and then in a few weeks add the bellydance drills in between the two practices, or should I add the bellydance drills next Monday and then add another yoga practice as cool down in a couple weeks.

Regardless of what I decide to do with my morning exersize routine, it looks like starting in two weeks I'll be adding a couple more hours of bellydance on Monday evenings. That will mean 2 hrs bd on Mondays, 3 hrs of bd on Wednesdays, an hour on Thursdays and another hour or two on Sundays as time permits. I've been ballroom dancing with my fiance and parents on Mondays and I will probably move that to Fridays.

    Hi, Just wanted to say that I've been wanting to try the things you're doing. Especially the bellydance and ballroom dance. It just looks like a fun way to exercise (challenging, but fun).

    I'm no expert on weight loss - if I was, I wouldn't be in this mess, right? But, everything I've read is in favor of gradually increasing activity, so you'd probably be okay to wait and add the extra bd drills in a couple of weeks. Work your way up to it to prevent burnout and injury.

    Keep up the hard work!
