New Goals

Saturday, January 07, 2012

I have been monitoring my weight and today when I stepped on the scale it had increased from early in the week, which is surprising since I have been eating less and trying to get in more ST and cardio. I switched my cardio to 45 minutes 6 days a week and to burn at least 3000 calories. I really don't have a problem doing the cardio it's the ST and staying in my calorie range where I struggle. I have been on a downhill slide and gaining probably for the last 6 months, it's just been so slight that I really didn't worry about it, but now it's starting to bother me. Things fit but not as well as before and I'm just not happy about my appearance. No one else seems to notice not even my hubby, but I can tell and I need to change. I have been good the last 2 days and kept in my calorie range, so I know that I can do it, I just have to do it. I even went on and changed my ticker to today's weight and I plan on weighing in at least 3 time a week to keep me honest and on track. I'm also going to try to start blogging more as a way to keep me on track!! emoticon
Thanks for stopping in and hopefully I'll have progress to report soon! emoticon

    Remember, to not let the scale only be your measure of success. As you increase your exercise...success. You are getting stronger. Another benefit is ..one pound of muscle takes up less room on the body then one pound of fat. You can lose a pound of fat and gain some muscle and the scale does not reflect the awesome changes in your health. The numbers can cancel each other out.

    So congrats on your success...moving more and eating less. :)

    Maybe changing up your exercise routine would help! Sometimes fooling your body by eating at the top of your calorie range for a couple of days and then at the bottom of the range for a day or two helps! Watch out for the sodium, too! Hugs!

    glad to hear you are back on a mini-roll with the last 2 days (as I blogged about - my last 6 months had been a very slow slope back down abut so this week got back on track

    best of luck with your goals - with your fitness levels, I would bet a little tracking makes changes happen for you pretty quickly
