Today is Friday. It is my 15th day of streaking. I got up this morning not wanting to do anything, notta. I didn't even drink my cup of coffee. I grabbed my slim fast and drank it down. My daughter had the wii fit on, so I told myself, no matter what, I got to do 30 minutes on my wii fit to keep streaking. Ok, I got on it, I did some deep breathing - always start with that at least one time. I did the half moon stretch. Ok, now off to strength, did the twist, then did the crunch...ok, now to cardio. I need to make this a good workout, mostly cardio, since I plan on only doing 30 min today. I did the hula, did the hula again, did it again, step, then again, and again and again, then advanced step, and again, then it was to free step, now I am just a little past the 30 min...my piggy does the piggy dance. I continue on to an hour. Ok, break time, lets try the My fitness coach for 15 min to get a really good workout. Cool, awesome, made it through it! I have done my streak and more. I feel so great that I did it.
Now, I have to tell ya, my wii fit gave me a boost. How and why? I did the body test, I showed 193...wow, that got me a little motivated. My BMI was down, but that didn't motivate me like seeing it say 193. Wow, so I felt like working out extra hard. Now, I will have to wait until Sunday for my weigh in to see how I am doing. I can't count it until Sunday as it played tricks on me last week. It showed me 2 pounds down then Sunday came and I was only 1 pound down.
I have to say, the wii seems to be pretty accurate. It matches my regular scale for most part. It also flexes as much as my house scale... I don't know if my scale is going to show anything when it comes Sunday, but I am going to continue to work hard and keep working hard.
I have to say, this is really hard for me, truly hard, both emotionally and physically. I just can't handle the fact that I have had to start all this hard work from 197 and not the 189. I can't beat myself up over it, but it really does bother me. I worked so hard last year (2008) and only made it to 189, and I truly did work hard. Well, since it is 2009, I am working even harder. I am hoping by changing up my exercise routine, that I will be able to keep my body tricked into releasing.
Water Aerobics, that was suppose to happen today, again, but my sister called and had other plans. She said next week. What a bummer. Oh well. If I had the car, I would go myself, but don't so I will change it up with my own stuff. My fitness Coach will be doing plenty of that as well as my wii fit.
Changing it up, well, that is a combination of yoga, strength, aerobics, cardio, walking, water aerobics, dance (when I get my DDR).
Changing it up with my eating too. My calorie range goes from high side to low side. I am not keeping it perfect at a set amount...just being in range. Some days, I hit it a little low on the new calorie range, but I am in the range of the old range. Can't say this will work, but I sure am going to keep on trying.
OK, I feel like I am just rambling so closing for now.
