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, we can and will do this.

    You won't fail! You have the right attitude! As for the uppage on the scale it's probably all that wonderful muscle you're building up. Take your measurements and feel good about the inches you've lost!
