...I am finally back on track! I just finished my first week with Curves and I love it! I did Curves on Mon, Wed, and Sat, and did my regular Zumba classes on Tues and Thurs as usual. I also did much better with my nutrition. The result? Almost 3 lbs lost in a week! I know the weight loss may slow down after this week, but I am so happy with my new routine. And the best part is, I feel like I finally have my mojo back. After falling into a rut in Sept, I am once again EXCITED about my weight loss journey.
And my goals have changed along with my attitude. My goal will no longer involve the number on the scale, but the number of WORKOUTS I put in. My new goal is to put in 3 days a week at Curves and 2-3 days of Zumba or other cardio. Also, I will stay within my calorie range at least 5 days a week.
I cannot always control the number on the scale, but I CAN control the EFFORT I put into my health.

The last couple weeks have SUCKED weight-wise. And it's no mystery why. I've still been going to zumba 3x a week, but I've been eating like crud and doing no other exercise. I gained 1/2 a pound back (as of my last weigh-in), and I've really been struggling to get the motivation needed to keep going.
I've been making only half-hearted attempts to track my food. That changes TODAY. I will hold myself accountable for EVERY bite I put in my mouth today, even if it means I have to face some hard truths.
I feel hopeful that today will be the turning point...I'm not ready to give up yet!

...and I may fall off!! This is a preemptive strike!
I've been struggling so much this last week with my calorie intake. I haven't been eating TOO bad, and I still lost 2 lbs this week, but I really think that was only because I did zumba 4 days this week (usually I'm only scheduled for 3 classes).
Its been SO hard to stay away from the sweets and chips and junk food this week! I feel like I've been fighting all week just to stay somewhat on track. Plus, as much as I love my zumba classes, I even found it difficult to get my butt to class this week, and I'm usually so excited to go.
I can feel my motivation slipping away. HELP!!

So last week sucked, but that's ok. Life happens, but I REFUSE to let it derail me. I have pulled myself together and I'm looking forward to a wonderful week.
My goal this week is to get back on track in a big way. Breaking it down, here are my little goals for the week:
1) Track my food and cardio every day
2) Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day - I feel SO much better when I drink all my water!
3) Meet my calorie goals for the week...both cals in and cals burned
4) Take my vitamins every morning...since I'm anemic I HAVE to take my iron every day but I am horrible about remembering it.
So that's it! Nothing complicated this week, just focusing on the basics.
Hope you all have a great, healthy week!

I feel awful that I haven't been around much the last week or so. I'm so sorry friends! It has been a horrible week emotionally.
On Labor Day my family celebrated my dad's birthday. Without going into too much detail, my sister and I had a huge blowout during the celebration. We have always had a very turbulent relationship, and I'm used to her antics. I would have gladly let the situation go for the sake of my dad, but this time it was about my kids, and that I will not stand for.
The fighting that followed in the next few days between me, my sister, and my parents, took so much out of me emotionally and physically that I had barely any energy left to take care of my kids and the "first week of school" craziness. I am so glad they were all happy to go back to school, it made life much easier than it might have been otherwise.
So...back to business. I haven't been tracking my food, but I have a pretty set routine on what I eat most of the time, and I haven't deviated too much from that. What I'm really worried about is the exercise factor...on top of being an emotional wreck this week, my Zumba classes were canceled until Sat so I didn't even have that to look forward to this week. Instead I've done only 1 workout when I should've had at least 4 done by today.
I will be so happy if I just maintained my weight this week, but I'm pessimistic about that.
I realize that this is life getting in the way of my goals, and that's bound to happen sometimes. So I'm not gonna beat myself up over it, I'm just gonna take the weekend to regroup and get back on track by Sunday.
to you all.
