DOWN A STICK OF BUTTER LOL

Thursday, August 11, 2011

I lost a whopping .02 lbs. this week. My leader said it was equivalent to a stick of butter. LOL Anyway, a loss is a loss. I guess it is good because I didn't exercise and/or track. Next week will be better. My DD and I are going to do Zumba on Monday and Wednesday. I would like to try it for next 3 weeks until she goes back to school. emoticon

    Your title for this blog made me think of something I heard on the radio yesterday about a state fair offering deep fried butter. Yep! It's a whole stick of butter that is deep fried! Better to lose it than to eat it! emoticon

    Could not agree more!
It sure is better to lose the stick of butter than eat it. Now when I lose a small amount like less than a pound, I will remember this statement.

SORE FROM ZUMBA YESTERDAY

Thursday, August 11, 2011

My DD and I did our hour of Zumba yesterday. I think I must have sweated at least 2 lbs. I was exhausted by the end of the session, but felt a great sense of accomplishment that I had done this. Tonight is our Weight Watchers meeting. I don't think I have lost any weight as I have not tracked and only exercised once this week at Zumba.

NEED MOTIVATION TO EXERCISE

Saturday, August 06, 2011

I don't know what is wrong with me this week, but I don't feel like exercising. Last week, I was really into it, and this week, don't feel like doing it at all.
I need a kick in the butt to get me started again. Help!

    Consider it a reward for all the well-done jobs you do and consider it very good medicine for the stressful events in your life. Give yourself a hug! emoticon

    More ideas: Put a sticker on your calendar for every day you exercise; take a pix of it, upload it onto your SPpage. Accountability & fun

    Try it for 10 minutes, hopefully you'll keep going after that. Have fun, switch things up!
Good luck!

    I need to get back on track too. I'm going to do something fun and active tomorrow. Maybe we will have to exchange stories about something fun we did/are doing.

    For me, part of the motivation is that I get to enter in my exercise into the fitness tracker. I have that satisfaction that I did what I was sposed to. If I start razzing on myself at some point during a day that I've already exercised....WELL, I get to give that lousy self talk a kick in the butt. I like that, too! emoticon

    Ahhh, remember SP is a Lifestyle. You are 'stylin'.

If you can't get back to exercising, this upcoming week, THEN, you'll get a kick from me.

That being said.....

Get past the emotions. It isn't something we FEEL or DON'T feel.

Do you FEEL like washing those dirty dishes? You wash 'em b/c you have to. Same goes with exercising. I know others would say they LOVE to exercise, they get the 'high' from it, etc. For me, it is just 'doing the SP work.'

Hope this helps some. HUGS.

MY WEIGHT IS BELOW ONE OF THE MAGIC NUMBERS

Thursday, August 04, 2011

I am into the 140's. Just barely, but I am finally there! I weighed in today and I am 149.6. I have lost a total of 9.4 lbs. It has taken me 15 weeks. It seems like a long time, but hopefully, if I keep up the exercise and tracking, maybe it will come off a little quicker, like a 1/2 lb. per week. Maybe some weeks a whopping l lb. I was really hoping for a l lb. loss, but at least I am under one of those magic numbers that we all have.
Must have been the Zumba of which I do not ache at all today, surprisingly. LOL

    Good job! I remember I was so happy just to get below 190 lbs. Now I am waiting to get below 180 lbs. I tend to go by 10 lbs at a time. Way to go! emoticon

I SURVIVED ZUMBA

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

This is my second go around with Zumba. My DD insisted that I do it again. I will let you all know how I feel tomorrow. That is, if I can walk. Anyhow, we went to the local gym and I sweated a lot for an hour. Tomorrow is our weigh in and if I don't lose at least one pound, I will be very, very upset. I have tracked and worked out a lot this week.

    I think they'd have to have an ambulance on standby for me;) I don't perspire so that would be the first problem for me. I just swell up and turn red, not a pretty picture, I know. My mom and grandmother were the same way, makes life miserable when you have no natural mechanism for cooling down! Glad you made it through-I'm sure you'll lose weight with all your great effort!

    Zumba is great! It makes you sweat like crazy, but it's a fantastic work out! One of the things I realized is that just about everyone at the Zumba class is fumbling around, trying to get those steps right. I used to think I was the only one who didn't know what they were doing. A conversation with my good friend made me realize that if that if I'm moving then that is all that counts. I've now been going to classes since May and know the steps (as much as I'm ever going to be able to do them...LOL) In my mind, the only one who looks graceful at it are the teachers. It sure is fun, tho!
