Shanna's Skinny It Up Challenge :: Week 5

Mar 09, 2012

Week 5.

Emotionally, not a great week. I’ve still been strong on my diet and workout plan, but I’m working out 4-5 days a week, eating 1400 healthy calories a day, and I’ve still only lost between 3-4 pounds total. 5 weeks, 3-4 pounds. I’m going back and reading through my food diary (which I now have one on paper, one on my phone and one on my computer so I never miss a single thing I put in my mouth) – and I can’t figure out where I am going wrong.

I’m frustrated.

My husband has lost 8 in the last two weeks. He’s not even working out. Looks like his periodic Custom Fit Meals and daily Visalus shakes are working amazingly for him. Men.

And on top of it all, it’s my 25th birthday tomorrow and this weekend is going to be very hard for me with dinners and lunches that my friends and family has planned for me. I have to stay strong, I know it, but it’s so easy to give into the temptation when I’m not seeing the results that I want…Yet, I hope.

I know these ‘results’ are coming. My body is changing, and I can feel it, I just can’t see it on the scale, and for some reason until I see it on the scale I’m not going to believe that anything is truly changing.

Delaney has me doing crazy workouts this week too. I think Wednesday’s personal training session was the hardest yet. We went outside in the parking lot and she made me run lap after lap after lap while doing strength training in between. Ouch. I’m not proud of the names I called her Wednesday night – sorry Delaney! ;)

Inner Strength is still an amazing class and I am really enjoying taking it every week. I promised a coworker I would try BodyCombat soon too – so maybe this coming week will be the time I give it a shot!

Has anyone else had this same problem?
