The home scale only reflects a .4 lb loss while my official weigh in was 1.6 lbs down. Should I even bother continuing to monitor and take a picture of the scale for my weekly posts? What would you rather see instead - a picture of the printout/sticker from weigh in, a screenshot of the chart or table view from Weight Watchers, or something else to display my weight?
Saturday we made a trip to Goodwill. I picked up
- Size 10 jean (Yes, I'm in 10's now!)
- Size 12 jean
- Size 10 cargo pants
- Size M wrap skirt
- 2 size L shirts
- 2 belts (I think they both say 38")
Benny managed to find this huge Lee Reynolds painting for $50. We tried to hang it up but can't get the picture wire to reach the nail. Austin and Benny picked out a couple of board games also.
I'm currently frustrated with my health insurance. Obamacare (I refuse to call it the true name) has come down hard on what my employer can offer us. Our deductible has quadrupled and all other costs have increased (even a deductible for prescriptions now!). Benny was supposed to have that surgery to remove the stones from his salivary gland/duct before the end of March but that was cancelled because he drank milk that morning. We had rescheduled it for tomorrow but now we had to cancel. I got the average facility cost from the hospital but Anthem flat out refuses to give us any kind of idea what our final cost will be. Will the final bill be just the deductible or will we have to pay some co-insurance also? Benny calls this a scam for them refusing to tell a consumer how much a service will be. He refuses to have the surgery until we know costing information so we can figure out how to pay for it all. Has anyone had this happened before?
I woke up and it was like a miracle had happened overnight! Only a slight twinge periodically in my thighs but otherwise I was pain free. So it was definitely the right decision to switch days 3 & 4 workouts. Leg day wasn't as bad as I'd expected. I see everyone posting about how they hate leg day on just about every workout program. I'd almost say I LOVE leg day if they were all like this!
Day 5: Cardio Fix
I alternated between the regular and modified movements throughout the workout so I wouldn't overdo it. That worked out really well; I had the best burn of all 7 workouts...right about where I like to be.
Day 6: Dirty 30
I didn't understand what made this workout "dirty"...
Day 7: Yoga Fix
I tried this workout before officially starting so I had an idea what I was doing. Did that make doing yoga easier? Perhaps. It sure felt a little easier but I just don't do that swooping thing when you go into up dog. It's either my lack of coordination or I'm too slow LOL
Day 8: Total Body Cardio Fix
Back to surrendering again. UGH! I took it very slowly and pushed through without pain. Next week I'll go a little faster and hope to not have a repeat of day 1.
Day 9: Upper Fix
Attempted to do some of the moves with my Slim in 6 resistance band instead of the weights. Yeah, that didn't work out so well. I just couldn't stretch the band out with it wrapped around my feet. It's possible that this band is just too short to do these workouts. I do want to pick up some heavier weights though. I'm only working with 3 lb weights so maybe just 5 lb ones next.
Day 10: Lower Fix
Leg day again! It only hurts doing the leg lifts on the floor. It wouldn't be so bad if it were less than a minute. But at least it doesn't last beyond the moves.
I really need a better blender and more big cups if I'm going to keep up with eating all these fruits and veggies! Some days I even struggle getting the protein in. I've always called myself the meat and potatoes kid so it doesn't make sense that I can't eat more meat LOL. It does seem easier when I do the smoothies as dessert as opposed to breakfast or a morning snack. Benny hates cleaning out the blender but doesn't like how I wash dishes so he's stuck with it.
My salads are a little weird since the only raw veggies I'll eat are the leafy ones; everything else has to be cooked. So I'll have just lettuce and spinach with some turkey. Now, one day I tried to make a vinaigrette with my rice vinegar. For some reason I had a headache from the first bite. The flavor was good but the headache kind of scared me. Have you experienced this before? The rest of the time I've eaten a salad I've just used my fat free ranch but don't know if it's 21 Day Fix friendly.
