#StillInIt 2017 - Week 2

Week 2 is DONE! I am down another 1.6 pounds, .5% body fat, lowered BMI and body measurements for my waist and hips and increased muscle. I didn't have a drop of alcohol and it wasn't even a struggle with Cinco de Mayo and going out for a girls' night to see Daniel Tosh in San Jose.

Meal prepping was done on Sunday evening with lemon pepper and garlic parmesan zucchini thanks to Pinterest, plus cabbage and sausage. Tasty. I also attempted to take the Thrive pill and wore a patch. I wanted to test it using it when I wasn't going to take my normal Shredz supplements. I couldn't really tell if it altered my mood. However, a friend has lost 20 pounds using it but just remember, it's not a magic pill. Working out and eating right has to happen.

So to recap:

Weight lifted: 1,800
Morning workouts are at 5:30 AM.

Weight lifted: 3,300
HIIT, don't forget to stretch.

That evening, I met up with my #Instafriend for a second visit in three weekdays to Hazel Southern Restaurant & Bar before seeing Cinderella at the SF Ballet. By the third act, I was so tired that I slumped in my seat and closed my eyes. I had a long way home via Bart and didn't end up going to bed until midnight.

I slept in. I naturally got up at 4:45 AM but it was not hard to go back to sleep. It was my first rest day in 10 days. That evening, it was going to be my last Women Wednesday event to be hosted at DW. That night we were highlighting High West Distillery. I didn't have any of the whiskey and instead of having dinner at DW, we went back to Hazel's. Three times in four weekdays. Yes, we love it. Again, no drinks for me. My best friend on the other hand showed her support.

Weight lifted: 5,875
Worked on back, abs and cardio. No picture but I got it down.

Weight lifted: 840 pounds
Worked on abs and arms

Got back to it feeling good rocking my Shredz gear and shaker. Usually I have oatmeal from The Market with fruit but having a bite of Cristen's Banana Almond Butter Toast from Project Juice was so delicious that I had to get one for myself.

I met up with fellow Haywardian and SOHA rep, Angela, at the gym. She wants to lose another 50 pounds. She is a new friend and she saw my Instagram and asked for help. We chatted on the phone, gave her some tips and invited her to work out with me. We did some HIIT for about 40 minutes and cardio for 30.

We then went to The Hayward Ranch for the first time and got some breakfast. She hosted as a thank you for working her out. She reposted our photo from my Instagram and thanked me, saying that she's never smiled on the elliptical before. We will be working out together every now and then.

That evening, I met up with Christina at Loft Bar & Bistro in San Jose before going to San Jose State to see Daniel Tosh. Another late night. What a difference a nap, shower, makeup, hair straightener and new Stella & Dot jewelry can do, right!?!

Tired but made it to Tilden Park by 9:30 AM for the Hike for Girls benefiting Girl Ventures I did last year. I took Bevo this time. He was excited and tired afterwards.

To Week 3. I am looking to lift more! I feel like I've been going light.
