myself accountable. If I "b"log it here then everyone gets to see it and I have to be honest with myself or I'll never lose the weight and get healthy.
Zumba last night was wonderful! I feel so much better this week! The first week was sooo hard and then last week was even better but this week, week 3, I actually felt really good while I was doing it and it almost seemed easier but I still burned serious calories, 800!!!
I'm loving my new HRM. It really motivates me to work harder beacause then I want to see the calorie count go higher, it has a calorie counter as well!
Scale didn't seem to move too much this week, actually it went up .4 and I was a little depressed, but then today I am down 1.2 lbs. so I guess it just depends on the day. The one thing that didn't send me into a downward spiral of eating everything I saw was that I took my measurements as well and I lost an inch in my chest, waist, thighs and hips!! WOO HOO!!! Very excited about that!
DH is getting into the routine of working out and eating better too. He got up this morning and got on the TM, he was a little disappointed that he gained 1/2 lb this week, but he ate so badly on Sunday and today is the first day that he exercised this week so I told him not to worry about, plus it's a 1/2 lb...for him that's nothing.
Can't wait for Sunday morning. Two of my friends and I are going snowshoeing. We usually go every week, but only for 2 or 3 hrs. This one is a long trail, that hasn't been broken yet so we will be blazing trail for atleast 3 to 4 hrs in and then it's the return trip home! Sunday's are like my last chance workout! It's so nice to be in the woods and see how beautiful it is. Although, I love getting home and having my 2 wonderful babies great me with grins and screams of elation because I am back...so I guess the benefit is two-fold!
176.6 was me weight today, not changing what I weighed in at yesterday though, that was my official number and I'm going to keep it until next week!
