Over the past couple of weeks my interest in fitness has picked up again. I had been doing yoga, which even though I will continue to use it as a tool to relax, it just doesn't kick my ass enough. Instead I've decided to revisit pilates, which is what I used to do in college and I had good results with it. The only reason that I stopped is because Netflix stopped streaming my favorite pilates workouts. Instead I've been utilizing YouTube for channels such as Blogilates.
Anyway, Alex and I have been having good results with our modified diet. We still have cheat days where we are too lazy to make dinner so we buy a frozen pizza. I'm going to try to cut down on these for myself personally and make easy salads instead since it's just food and I shouldn't be a slave to unhealthy food when I have so many tasty alternatives.
One of co-workers at the hospital came up to me earlier this week and told me how great I look. He is really into diet and fitness, and he guessed that I had lost ~20 pounds. I refuse to buy a scale for this house and I honestly don't know how much weight that I've lost, but I promise that I did not drop that much. What I do know is that my face is more sucked in, I had to buy new pants a size smaller, that my arms and stomach have less pooch to grab onto, and that my boobs have shrunk. I don't think all of that happened just from two weeks of pilates, so I attribute it to having an extremely low grain and sugar diet.
Instead of weight, I'm going to start measuring my achievements through measurements so here we go!
