The last few days I have been feeling fat. I haven't felt this way for a very long time.. usually I feel smaller and strong. I know I tend to feel healthier when I exercise enough, eat correctly, and strength train. Last week I was at my parents from Thursday to Monday and sometimes it just isn't possible to do even when I try my hardest.
Anyhow, today was my weigh in and it was time to see if what I was feeling and what I actually weighed measured up.. it turns out I gained a pound so I guess it does measure up. I don't know if I can really be that upset that I gained a pound when all my other weigh ins since I started the 100 day challenge is I have lost 2-4# - how can I be upset about that?
The good news? I think by not weighing in all the time, I am learning to feel when I gained weight. Maybe eventually when I reach my goal weight I can wean myself off the scale.. how great would that be?
Goals for the next weigh in (in 10 days):
-Write down what I eat when I am at my parents even if I don't put it in
-Strength train 3x
-Stairs one day
Last night I came back from my parents after being gone from Friday afternoon. It was really nice to get back into routine.. to eat the same foods, and be able to do the same activities. This got me thinking.
There is comfort to routine..even in our weight loss. I walk every day. Last week, when I couldn't due to stress and weather, I worked out on the elliptical. I feel like I lost weight.. but since I only weigh in every 10 days I really don't know!
So, I decided to try to mix things up this summer while keeping to my routine.
Here is my plan.
Walk every day between 4-8 miles at least.
Work the...stairs, elliptical, legs (Run)...2x a week
Learn 3 new activitie: Zumba, Line dancing and how to ride a bike!
Weight loss goal: 30# by August 31st
I loss this amount last summer but it might be a bit high. I figure I will reach for the moon and land in the stars!
This morning when I woke up.. everything was great. I was excited for the day..
Than I started the day.. and I was still feeling pretty good.. but than things started to go down hill once I hopped on the computer.
1. I wrote a wonderful blog about how I love losing weight.. than I hit a button (Idk which one) and everything was gone.. *sigh*
2. I logged onto Facebook and saw that RA interviews were happening again. This made me sad.. that I wasn't invited for an interview. I am and would be again a great RA.. time for me to move on.
3. At the same time of logging onto Facebook I saw the guy that I kinda like and stares at me but NEVER says anything.. now is in a relationship. I. do. not. get. this. Am I just an objectified and being treated as a sexual object in the sense that I am good enough to stare at but not good enough to talk to.. ARGH.. Also last week he was fighting over my attention. WTH! Seriously, frustrated.. but you know what.. it doesn't matter anymore. It does make me sad.
Between 2 and 3, one can see why I am not on FB as much these days.. it brings me down majorly!
By the way, I lost 2.4# this time. I will try to focus on that.
Today, I had trouble deciding what to blog about and than I got an email about this which happened at a nearby college. Perhaps God brought this to me.. to pass it on. I am not sure but I do know I got a button on Wednesday saying: No room for prejudice in my heart. Please know this is truer than ever before. Go to the link and read the article.. there is no room for prejudice in this world.
