143MCW's Journal, 09 August 2007

Still losing...slowly but surely. I am trying to add strength training to my workout but I am having a hard time seeing if I can fit it into my sched. My school has a gym but most of the classes are during the day when I am at work. There is a water fitness class but I think I would just rather swim 1-3 days a week in our olympic sized pool. Still trying to decide.

Food Journal:
B - Curves whole grain cereal with light soy milk and 2 turkey sausages (250)
S - Spicy V8 (30)
L - 1/3 Chicken breast with homemade salsa and broccoli & grape tomatoes with homemade ranch (250)
D - Shrimp and zucchini (350)
Dessert - SF Jello and a glass of wine

Workout - Walked 30 mins (1.55 miles w/ 6.0 incline) - (-200 calories)
194.0 lb Lost so far: 8.0 lb.    Still to go: 29.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

You are doing an excellent job, the strength training would round things out nicely. Keep going!

Just jump in and start doing what ever you can and mix it up, thats better for your body anyways, I wish I had a pool near by to swim-oh well. Remember to that when you start weight training the scale may slow but your gaining muscle and youll see it in your clothes and the way you feel rather then on the scale. GOODLUCK

Swimming actually counts as strength training and cardio. Though I will tell you if you are doing cardio like 6 times a week, it's worth it to drop two of them and do strength training instead because building muscle helps burn fat, but I'm sure you knew that. I notice a huge difference in how consistently I lose weight when I'm disciplined about sticking to a weight lifting routine.
