Day 8: 06/08/10
Comments: Today is the start of my second week of documenting my progress. I only lost half a pound. While this was a bit discouraging, I did lose a 2.5 inches and that is a better indicator of my progress since my body could be retaining water. I am going to use the tape measure along with the scales especially with the weather being so hot. There is no telling what my body is doing when it comes to holding on to water.
Today I absolutely had no appetite or hunger. I was planning on drinking a protein shake after hoop practice, but it was so hot. When I came inside all I wanted to do was cool off and shower.
I didnt fall asleep until about 1 am. Exercising late can have do that sometimes. It could be that my metabolism got a kick, and turned up a bit. I was just having so much fun with my hoop that I probably worked too hard, and I started so late. It was still in the high 70’s at 8:15. This was the first time I had practiced my LED hoop out of doors at night. It was so awesome. Many of my neighbors slowed down while passing by in their cars, but it didn’t bother me. It looks really cool and everyone was just curious. I need to call some of my hoop friends to get together at night. Hooping makes exercise so much fun.
Daily Food Intake: Starting in week two I will be eating some Nutrisystem Foods. I want to do a product review on the diet. All entries from the Nutrisystem eating plan will be noted. After June, I will begin my competition fitness diet.
