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!

Last week was a good week for exercise. Here's how it shook out:
M - 20 min power yoga
T - 11 minutes cardio
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!!

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.)
pbbblttt ~~ sticking my tongue out at YOU, .
WHO NEEDS YA?!

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.
