It is 0700....
I lost 1 pound. I hate weighing in during "that time of the month". I never feel like the scale is accurate... but fear that it just might be. Last week I didn't loose at all and now I am only at 1 pound. 1 pound in 2 weeks... Have I reached a plateau? I am 13 pounds and 7 weeks away from my next goal. I have to loose 2 pounds a week to reach it. I still am struggling with the weekends. I just know that the weekends are the reason for my struggles. I am so good during the week- I exercise, drink all my water and track my cals. The weekend comes and I throw all that out the window. I need consistancy, which I lack. I need to treat my weekends the same as my weekdays. I really, really hope that I can find the strength to do it. Because this is one thing that I refuse to fail at!
So I talked to my friend today (who got me started on spark) and she made a good point. I have probably plateaued because I have not changed my exercise program. I never even thought of that. My body has adjusted to doing my 30 minutes of cardio 3 days and 30 minutes of strength training 3 days. I need to step it up a bit. So I have increased my times to 40 minutes. I really hope that I have found the culprit! Guess I will find out a week from today!
I read through my past blogs and see my weekend trend! I have known weekends are a problem since I started- and here I am almost 3 months later, having the exact same problem! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! If I can do well during the week, I can do well on the weekends. I need to grow some will-power and just do it!
I am totally motivated to succeed this week and honestly can not wait til my next weigh in!
Well it's 2346
And I did it! I did a full 40 minutes of strength training. I wanted to give up mid-way through... but I didn't and I actually finished the full 40 minutes. I even did a quick 5 minute warm up on the ellipticle and stretched before and after. It took over an hour... but I did it! I am so tired right now.... and bed is calling me! But I had to gloat before going!
