One Down, 14 to Go...

I lost one pound this past week. Amazing seeing how I only stick to my diet half the time. But I guess half a diet is better than no diet at all. I am loving the treadmill right now. It lets me get my runs in without being cold and my knee doesn't hurt as bad. Although I still think running outside it a much better workout. Hopefully soon the sun will come out and I can hit the pavement. Is anyone else having success?

Best workout ever!

On Monday, I started going to East West MMA because they had a 4 week free trial.  4 weeks!!!  That's an awesome deal, but the guy said they can do that because they are so confident that people will sign up once they try it.  And he was right.  It's frickin' awesome!

I've gone to the group classes for two nights now.  Last night we did a lot of kickboxing, and it was an insane workout.  Burns a lot of calories.  Tonight we did knife defense and some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  That was after we did some stretching, including something the Sensei called "The Big Hurt".  I don't know if I've ever been so sore or had so much hurting in my life, but it's a good kind of pain.

I can't imagine doing this for any length of time and not losing weight or getting in good shape.  It would be impossible.  I'm just loving it!

Here we go

I am starting again. Last week was my practice week. I did all right. This week isn't turning out too great, but I am trying. The hard part is fitting my exercise in...and not eating treats.....and eating healthy. I guess it is all hard. Not having too much fun, but I need some results. Sick of being a chubbo. I will update once a week, so I have someone to report my successes and failures to. That helps.
