Now it moves. The scale. Happy today. 3.4 pounds since last week. The scale didn't want to move and all of a sudden, down it goes. I'm not complaining mind you, I'm just very pleasantly surprised.
Hmm, maybe that extra Zumba class I threw in this week did it. In addition to one extra 3 minute running interval as well. Maybe the new sneakers got me moving more.
I had no mojo to get to the gym today. It's cold, raining and i'm sore from monday (still).
But I went. I ended up walking 4 miles on the treadmill at a fast pace instead of my usual running interval. At least I got out today and wasn't home eating.
I lost another inch off my waist and off my lower ab pouch thingy. I'm still feeling like a house cat with this belly but it's starting to change. Yay Me!
How are you doing? Whats one extra thing you can do this week towards your goals?

well, so much for a pound a week. Seems to be .2 pounds per week. My clothes are getting a bit looser and I'm getting more flexible and beat my personal running time. Just by a few seconds, but I did it. I think I'm starting to understand about not obsessing over the scale and numbers now. If I keep plugging along, doing my workouts and setting goals there, careful on food splurges (not feeling starved but still making healthy choices) and keep stretching to keep my back pain away, the weight should just take care of itself. I need to concentrate on my workouts and my food. Not the numbers on a scale. Too discouraging.
I think today I'll buy new running shoes for myself as an early Christmas present.

Well, I didn't get on the scale Monday. After Thanksgiving I just felt fat, bloated and swollen. I didn't eat much that day but maybe what I ate was full of sodium??
So I just figured if I stepped on the scale Monday, I might get let down and discouraged. So I didn't. It's okay to do that. I think I have to do a bit better this week to keep on track. Of course PMS set in so that could've been the bloated feeling (TMI for some people, sorry.)
So I'll still wait for next Monday to step on the scale and see what happens. I really hope to see 2 pounds go away from the last 2 weeks. But it's getting into 'the season', so we will see. I continue to try to behave. Not starve myself, just make adjustments to what I'm eating. Slowly but surely with exercise and all the stretching I'm doing, the weight will take care of itself.

Okay, I barely survived the candy holiday. I got on the scale mid week and was actually down .2 pounds. I was just hoping I didn't gain. Now, here it is the end of my week and I'm 2 pounds up. I'm hoping it's water retention. I'll know next week. Until then, I won't panic. Just keep plugging along.
Candy is gone and I just went food shopping for natures candy, fruit. I found an old plum in the fridge last night. Normally I'd have thrown it out since it was a bit old and soft. But I realized I've had no nutrients in my system at all since the candy night. So I ate it. It was actually the best plum I've ever had. I mean it was soooo goood!!!!!! It was old, but boy did it make me realize just how good fruit is. I'm sure it really wasn't the best plum out there, but being I've been living on candy, it sure seemed like it.
I think I'll go cut up that mango I just bought.....
