Not Quite a Slacker

Thursday, June 21, 2012

So today was one week since I last saw any progress with the scale. I've officially dubbed either Thursdays or Fridays my weigh-in days. Since I didn't want to wait until tomorrow, I went ahead and hopped on it today. The good news is that I didn't gain anything, but the bad news is that I didn't lose anything either.

So, I went back and looked at my numbers for the week, and I saw that I've been over on my calorie count almost every day. Since I saw results so quickly the first two weeks, I really let myself slide during week three. I also didn't get in the exercise that I want to get in each week and (get this!) didn't do my strength training either!

So... This week, I am going to step it up a notch so that, in seven days, I see some progress. I'm really excited that I didn't gain. So relieved about that. But I wanna see that number drop just a little bit more. Well, actually, if I'm honest... I wanna see it drop A LOT more, but I'll settle for a small drop for now. Honest.

What I'm going to do different this week:

I'm going to get in 5 servings of freggies EVERY day (yes, I'm still struggling with that)

I'm going to do my strength training 3 times a week

I'm going to get in my 90 minutes of exercise


I'm going to work harder to keep my calorie count a little lower


With making those changes, I hope to see some results. Gotta just get on it. I can do this!

    You can do this. Just remember to not judge by the scale. Your body will take time to adjust to the changes and will change shape before anything. Concentrate on the changes like your energy level and the way your clothing is fitting. You'll get the scale to move in time... : )

    Be sure to get the water in as well. I find that it really helps in oh-so-many ways.
    You are off to a great start and your goals are reasonable and doable. I hope you have a great weekend and that the scale is more friendly next week!

    This is why tracking is such a great thing. It's easy to lie to ourselves that we're eating just fine - while eating too much. But the body doesn't care what we think or say we ate. It cares what actually passed the lips going in.

    It's good you've made a plan and realize why the scale didn't move. With that you can move forward make the changes you need to and continue to get healthier and lose the weight you want. emoticon
