At week 18, my weight decreased to 149 lbs. So far with dieting and exercise, I have lost 4 pounds. I am able to eat about 1500 calories per day. Mostly I have to cut out carbs in order to meet that goal. It’s been hard, very hard.
I exercise 5 times a week, 30 minutes cardio + 30 minutes strength training. I have been noticing that my hips and lower back ache more after I run. Unfortunately this is probably still the residual effects of childbirth. So no more running. I’ve taken up the elipitical for now. The amazing thing is that I burn more calories on the elipitical than on a treadmill. Go figure.
I never really liked the elipitical because I always felt like it does not wittle down my waist. I feel like my abs get a better workout when I run. However I was told if I want to get really good ab definition then I need to do the Stair Master. If you plug in Stair Master on My Fitness Pal, 30 minutes will burn 304 calories which kicks Elipitical and Treadmill’s butt!
Starting this week, I’ll alternate Stair Master, Treadmill and Elipitical.
Keep it up everyone! We can lose weight and shape up together!
