August Fitness Update
I accomplished my goal of losing 5 pounds during the month of July. I began the month weighing 163 and I now weigh between 157-158, the scale can't decide which one it will be. Although I must say that I really wasn't consistent with working out this month. Most of the weight loss was attributed to the reduction of carbs in my diet. It has helped a lot that I have cut down on juice, sweets, and starches.
I have been doing Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred which has three levels. I am still on level 1, however as I have been losing weight, I am able to do all the fitness routines as they should be done, therefore getting a much better workout. When I began this program it was really hard for me to lift my 170 pound body to do any jumping exercise, but now I can jump without any strain or pain.
By continuously workout and eating well, I hope to lose up to 10 pounds this month. It is really rewarding and satisfying when you see results and know that you are closer and closer to your weight goal.
