Two weeks behind.

Monday, July 16, 2012

This is week 3 Stats and I am definitely two weeks behind in the weight loss department.
Wt : 166.00 (should be 164.3). Why on earth isn't my body responding to my mental commands.
Here are some of them. Salty snacks after a long stressful day.
No strength training. Less than 60 min of cardio-exercises on most days and being lazy.
The only redeeming fact is that all my blood parameters are in the normal range except for TSH which I think is border line even though the doctor says it is normal for PEI residents (Normal range is 3.5-4.5) and mine was 4.47. I will have to keep an eye on it.
To catch up I will have to up my exercises and stay away from salty nuts and crackers as well as limit bread to a minimum.
Summer should be a great season to lose weight but it does not seem to work for many of us and this is because of many BBQS, family reunions, vacations and the list is endless and so are distractions.
These are still excuses because in any situations we are responsible for our actions and our responses to the food spread before us. Let us make good choices most of the time and have treats once in a while.
This week I am going to try and redeem one lost week which means I have to lose 2.1 lbs. (goal weight: 163.9).
Go BB we can do it.

    Molly I know you can do this if you just set your mind to it!! Yes, summer is full of all sorts of things. But so is November & December (at least in the US). There will always be something going on somewhere in someones life. We must learn this new way of living, and eating, to be able to lose and to maintain. It's not an easy journey, that's for sure. It's one I'm trying to stick to now so that I don't blow up during pregnancy! It's so easy to use the "I'm pregnant" excuse, but I'll regret it later if I don't do something about it now!

    Wow, sorry, didn't mean to ramble so much. My point is, we can do this and only WE have the power to do it!!

    Summer is so hard, we love to entertain, so lots of BBQ's etc! Some days it is so hot and muggy, the only way I can exercise is to train a fan on me, usually have to push myself to do this lol!
    You are determined to lose, so work at it, and it will happen..good luck!
