I'm glad it's... (funny change I'm noticing)

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Yesterday, after doing a hard circuit training workout, for my "strength" day, I was thinking, "Boy, I'm glad tomorrow's only cardio. I can take a nice walk on the treadmill and that will be easier."

Today after just finishing my treadmill workout (walk/run), I find myself thinking, "Boy, I'm glad tomorrow's only strength (yoga). That will be easier."

Feels like a bit of a mental shift in the right -- positive -- direction, doesn't it?

It does to me! emoticon

    Kay, I use a lot of the ones on Exercise TV on Comcast On Demand. My favorites right now are Tom Morley's 20 minute cardio yoga, and Chris Freytag's 10-lb slimdown yoga. I also liked Karen Voigt - bought her DVD a few years ago.

    What yoga program do you use? I had one a long time ago, and the tape broke. I haven't found another one that I liked.
I'm skeptical to buy another one.

Weekly Plan - last week/this week

Monday, August 01, 2011

Last week was a good week for exercise. Here's how it shook out:

M - 20 min power yoga
T - 11 minutes cardio
W -
Th - 24 minutes treadmill, 30 minutes swimming = 54 min cardio
F - 10 min yoga
S - 13 minutes kickboxing, 20 minutes power yoga = 33 min cardio

I had things come up on Tuesday and Wednesday and couldn't fit it in, but I feel like I made up for it on Thursday.

This week, my goals are the same:

>>Yoga/strength M, W, F, and cardio T, TH, SA, with a rest day on Sunday.

>>I'm upping my calories to 1600 to see where that gets me.

>>I am not weighing in.

Hope everyone has a successful week!!

Bye, Scale.

Thursday, July 28, 2011

My scale is getting the better of me so it is being put away TONIGHT.

I am working on this journey, I am eating better, I am exercising, and I don't deserve to be defeated by a dumb number. So it's going away for awhile. I don't know how long. (As long as I can stand to not know.)

A new day, new week

Monday, July 25, 2011

I just want to get that "Ticked" post off the top of my blog. LOL.

We had a good weekend. Dropped off my big boy at his grandparents' for the week. I hope he'll have fun! I miss him already but am looking forward to a quieter week -- his sister will have no one to antagonize her!

She is also going to sleep more easily the last few nights, with a new CD player in her room and a Disney princesses CD. :) Maybe that means I won't have to fall asleep in there with her every night and blow my only free time from 8:30 - 9:30 pm. We'll see.

New day, new week, new chance to treat my body well and feel great as a result...

Well. TOM just ended yesterday so I suppose I could still have some water weight, but my weigh in today was 2 effing pounds up. UP. I wasn't even going to POST because I didn't want to talk about it, but when I got to my desk I got right on SP and started looking to START THE F OVER. Where's the Diet Overview? Give me MEAL PLANS. Someone needs to do this for me, I guess, because whatever I'm doing on my own is obviously not working.

Of course I told myself all the things you're supposed to say, that my family and friends love me no matter what the number on the scale says, that any little bit of exercise and good eating is still BETTER than ice cream and TV all day, that everyone has setbacks, but I really don't understand a 2 pound gain. It is the top boundary of what I've ever weighed... and I thought I had been really doing better lately.

So. I will refrain from spouting all the curse words that are sitting on the tip of my tongue at this moment. And I will meet KV today to walk, and I will refocus I guess and keep on going.

but *&!$$(%@$, I am ticked.

    Thanks for your encouraging reply to my blog, Lee! Definitely weigh yourself in the morning, but most importantly, don't beat yourself up! Keep your head up! emoticon

    Ugh, I hate those days. Don't give up. You could be having a weird week. Sometimes, if that happens to me, I weigh myself the next morning. This helps two ways - it keeps me from going on a p!ssed off binge today and the scale might be down tomorrow because of water retention. Good luck!

    The 2 lbs could be water weight. Wait and see how you do today, and weigh yourself tomorrow. Hopefully, you'll be down. DON'T GIVE UP! You can do it. One day at a time. Good luck!
