I knew my arms would be sore today because we did weapons and practiced with the sword--and you get a great workout for your arms in doing different things. But the rest of the class didn't seem so bad. We got to do a lot of self-defense and some really amazing on the ground self-defense. We learned how to get out of two different situations--if someone has you on the ground, and they're on top of you, we learned what to do if we had our arms free and we also learned what to do if the person tucked in our arms on our side and used their legs to keep your arms from doing anything. It ROCKED. Today . . . I can barely move! At least I know I had a great workout!
I feel like I've kept to my calories pretty well this week. One day I went low, but other than that, I've done well. Yesterday I went high, but figured I could with all the exercise. Last week I weighed 197.6 and today I weigh 195.6. Two pounds. I also weighed 195.6 yesterday so hopefully that is what I weigh.
The other thing to celebrate? I weigh less than my husband. Now, this might not seem like such a big deal to most people--but when I first met (around 12 years ago) Damon--I weighed 145. He still weighed less than me. I think 135. Very skinny guy. Well, he has put on weight just like me, but never as much. The last time I lost weight and was down to around 180 he was still in the range of 170 or so.
When he weighed himself the other day he was at 196.4. Woohoo! I don't weigh THAT much less than him, but still. I WEIGH LESS. And by golly, I'm going to be happy about it!!!
And even though he should, he doesn't have any plans to do weight loss anytime in the future. I'm really okay with this. At least until I get off all of my weight. I want to have a chance to ENJOY weighing less than my husband!
