It was funny because all of my co-workers, who saw me yesterday in a XXL shirt, commented on how much better I was looking today. I heard just about everything today, "Wow you are shrinking", "How much weight did you lose", "You look great", "Looks like you need to buy new clothes", "Good for you." I mean, they all saw me yesterday and I did not hear a word out of them about anything relating to weight loss. Now don't get me wrong, I like what I am hearing and it only adds fuel my motivation even more. Like I mentioned before, the your clothes don't lie. I do however, need to invest in better fitting clothes eventually.
New Meal and Workout Structure - Update
It is half way through the week and I believe that my new meal and workout structures, that I developed on Sunday, are going well so far. Food shopping on Sunday was a clutch move. Cooking the recipes we had prepared for this week, has been really easy and fun. Taking the left overs to work, from the dinner the night before, is proving to workout out good. Also, adding the refrigerator and microwave to the office makes it real easy to keep the meals fresh and as great tasting as when we first cooked them. Also as an added bonus, we saved over $100 this week by cooking everyday and bringing all of our meals to work. It is a tedious job preparing the meals, for the week, on Sunday but it makes it a whole lot easier and less expensive.
My workout routine seems to be effective as well. Granted, I had trouble waking up on Monday and Tuesday in the morning. However, I didn't let that get me down. I finally managed to wake up this morning to workout and I felt great the whole day. My chest and biceps are soar, as well, from my weight lifting workout yesterday. No pain, no gain. Anyway, I am very happy how this week is shaping up so far. I like taking the steps to prepare for the week on Sunday for both my meals and my workouts. I can only hope that eventually it becomes second nature.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
