It's funny how this all works.
I've been doing WW's since the last Sunday of November. For the most part I have been on program. As of today, I've lost a total of 3.5 pounds. WTF! (150, now 146.5) Ok ok. I know the scale lies. I *know* I'm retaining water. I *know* I've swapped a lot of fat for muscle. But seriously?? 3.5 stinking pounds??
I know the saying "It's hard to be fat. It's hard to lose weight. Choose your hard." And I'll choose the lose weight Hard. But really. Two months and I've hardly moved.
So Back to Basics. I have been getting in all my good foods. I need to cut out the not good foods. The stuff I wouldn't be doing as someone 125#s. That means getting back to removing the whiskey (yes, I love my nightcap!!) and removing the muffins/chips/cupcakes. The crazy thing is I'm not chowing down on them. They just sneak in there bit by bit everyday. I'm going to try to stop making excuses. The temptations are strong (gawd, this house is filled with junk food! I have to learn to just walk on by!!)
Exercise: I don't think I need to change anything. I'm doing the C25K three times a week. Going on mountain hikes nearly every day, averaging about 1 1/2 - 2 hours at a shot. I do need to keep up with yoga daily (something I sometimes just don't do). I need it to keep from getting injured from the hiking/running.
That's all for now. I've had my yoga, healthy breakfast and vitamins this morning. Now it's time to get to work.
