So last night I started reading Bob Harper’s book – The Skinny Rules. I’ve only read about 50 pages of the book so far and I’m loving some of the rules he is putting forward.
This morning I adopted the ‘glass of water within 15 minutes of getting out of bed’ suggestion, but after I’ve weighed myself, because according to the book, doing that every day is okay too – as a form of motivation. I’ll also be making sure to have a large glass of water before every meal!
The book also made me realise how much my current eating pattern already fits in with his rules. I’m not all the way through, but I eat berries every day like he suggests too. I make them into a smoothie. In fact, my smoothie recipe is almost identical to the one in his book! YAY! I’m looking forward to finishing the book and I’m also looking forward to it changing my way of thinking.
What is striking me is how much this book is common sense. One amazing fact that has stuck is that most of the contestants on The Biggest Loser, when they arrive, they are chronically dehydrated. Wow.
Last week, I went back to boxing. This time I wore my HRM and got a whopping 1132 calorie burn from the 60 minute workout. I’ve got boxing booked in for this Wednesday night and next Wednesday night. It is all paid for, so that is some serious motivation. I’m also back into doing the 30DS – and loving those workouts too.
To be honest, I expected more of a loss than what I got – however, I did have some ice cream on Friday and Saturday nights, which did put me over my calories for those days, but for the whole week, I was 1292 Net Calories under weekly goal according to MyFitnessPal. Hoping that this week coming will be better as I increase my water consumption and increase my exercise! And I don’t have to deal with that pesky study nonsense because my 1st semester for 2012 is finished and I have five years left to go before I get my degree 🙂
