Week 5 - Day 41 - March 9
Tuesday, March 09, 2010
Today is a new day! I have to recommit myself to my challenges. I am slipping, and do not want to "fail" on changing my lifestyle. Yes, losing weight, eating properly and exercising are choices I have made for life. I understand it will not always be easy. This is why I have to remember to take one day at a time. Sometimes that is a bit much so I have to take one hour or morning or evening, you get the picture at a time.
I stepped on the scale (one at the gym) and it read 199.9. What?! Huh, why oh why is the scale going in the "wrong" direction. I am eating properly, working out and drinking water. I do eat late, I do workout on my own and I used another scale at the gym last week.
Okay so this is what I will do. I will workout on the elliptical instead of the treadmill for my cardio. I will continue with my strength training program (recently increased weights on some, removed some and added others). I do not feel the burn after I workout. I feel it while but not after. I wonder if I am not pushing myself enough. I did a Jillian Michaels video one day, and the next day my arms were feeling it. I am determined and dedicated to losing this weight.
In time, I know the weight will come off. I have been frustrated in the past when the weight did not come off after I did what I was suppose to do. Tonight I will take measurements and may reassess my workout routine and nutrition if I do not see any losses.
I hope you are taking the time to change up your routine--nutrition and fitness. Getting in a rut is one of the biggest mistakes we make when adapting to a healthy and fit lifestyle. With your support and SP.com, we can and will do this.
