Shrink In 2 Action – The Shrinking Jeans of Nancy

I’m happy to say that I have nothing but good news today. I had an awesome week. So awesome that I don’t even know where to start to tell you about it.

I guess I should start with the change I made. I cancelled Weight Watchers and started My Fitness Pal. I really love it. Most of the girls that I work out with are on there and talked me into trying it. I wasn’t getting the results that I wanted with Weight Watchers and to be honest, it was a lot of work. My Fitness Pal works with calories and there has yet to be a food that I put in that wasn’t already in their database. With Weight Watchers, I was always having to figure out points and I was having trouble changing from the old way to the new Points Plus way.

I have been working out a lot. I’ve been doing zumba four days a week and boot camp twice a week. I’ve been alternating at home with the treadmill, elliptical and bike. I’ve also been doing sit ups and weights.

One thing that I have fallen off on is the 100 push up challenge. It’s not that I stopped doing them. It’s just that we do so many of them at boot camp, I have a hard time keeping up with the challenge at home. Monday night, we did 60 push ups in a 10 minute circuit. We also did a different kind of push up in another circuit. I only managed 42 in that circuit. Try making a diamond with your hands together and do a push up. It’s tough!!

So, here’s the weigh in news. After starting My Fitness Pal on Sunday, the Bacardi part of Team Bacardi and Diet Coke has lost 1.4 pounds this week. I’m anxious for next week to see how I do in a full week.

I feel like I am in a good groove now. How are you all doing? My partner seems to be MIA, so I’m not sure how our team did this week. Hope I find her soon.

I should be starting off this post with an apology. I have been absent from this site far too often lately. My life has been hectic to say the least, but that is no excuse. So..I’m sorry. I’ll try to do better.

I am loving this new challenge. Christy is my partner and we are Bacardi (me) and Diet Coke (Christy). We are doing pretty well. We have been in the top 10 for the past two weeks. We fell three places this week, so we have some work to do this week.

I lost one pound this week. I’m happy with that. It’s not as much as last week, but it’s still good. I have been exercising like a crazy person. Monday night I went to zumba at 6:00, walked at 7:00 and then on to boot camp at 8:00. I don’t recommend you do that. By the last circuit of boot camp, I was ready to cry. The good news is that I kept going and finished strong and exhausted.

I don’t think I could have a better bud than Christy. She has been my biggest supporter since I started this journey. She’s not afraid to kick my ass when I need it or to tell me when I’m doing well. I do the same for her. We’re a great combo. Thanks Christy!! You are the best!

That’s what’s going o with me. How about you? How are you doing with this challenge?
