Its time to break this two week slump I've been in. Last time I saw a significant weight loss was when I weighed 6/11 and had lost almost 2 pounds, I maintained that weight the next week and this week I've only lost .4. Ok, ok, I should be happy that I've maintained and even lost a little this week, right? But I'm not happy, I want to see at least a full pound gone each week. I know, I know, I'm ahead of my goal, but I don't see that as reason to allow backsliding, which is what I feel I'm doing. I had my excuses, I've been sick for two weeks, but along with not working out because I've been feeling badly, I also haven't been eating like I should, I've been allowing more snacking and although I do portion them out, I've even been slipping on that some. Its the summer curse I think, the feeling that I should just be carefree and do whatever. But that kind of attitude is what got me into this situation in the first place.
So yesterday and today I've gotten up and exercised, its felt GREAT, not just good, GREAT! It feels good to move and feels good to be working towards my goal again. I switched it up this morning and did The Firm Express, I did sculpt today and unless I'm in horrible pain (which I might be based on how I'm feeling now), I will do the cardio tomorrow and then the cardio sculpt on Thursday. But if I'm in pain I will probably do Turbo Jam, I've been doing the 20 minute quick Turbo Jam workout, I love it, I know the routine now, I sweat and build up my strength...and I also imagine I'm kicking and punching someone I'm currently annoyed with at work
so I feel like that would be a nice stretch to work out sore muscles then to try to learn the new, fast and complicated moves in the cardio workout.
I have Friday off and I'm going to drive to NC to see my BFF, we've been best friends since we met when we were almost 2, my mother still cries when she tells the story of how we met, she said that we saw each other from across the room, we locked eyes and ran to each other and hugged, she said it was like we were saying "oh my gosh, there you are, I've been waiting and waiting for you". When we were about 12 her dad got laid off and they had to move to a neighboring state, but our parents were good about getting us together and we've continued to travel back and forth to see each other, as we've gotten older with more demanding jobs and children its been harder. I haven't seen her in almost 2 years when she came to see me after I gave birth to Molly. This trip is just me, no kids, no worries, just me and the car. Gonna get up Friday, work out, maybe take a dip in the pool, shower and get cleaned up, go get my eyebrows waxed, get my toenails painted, drop the boys at a friends house for a play date until Daddy gets off to pick them up and I'm heading out of town!! The awesome thing is this, she lives at the beach. So I'm going to get to hang with my BFF on the beach, AWESOME!! This story Debby needs to get the heck away from NC!
This weekend I plan to eat what I want and I don't plan on recording calories, but I'm also going to make smart choices. I don't need to go crazy and eat nothing but chips and sour cream LOL. I have eaten out recently and have made good choices, like getting dressing on the side and just dipping my fork in it before a bite of salad, getting steamed broccoli as my side instead of chips or fries. So I know I can still make good choices and have a good time. But I'm not going to stress about it either.
Ok, now its getting late and I need to shower before work, TTFN!
