I've moaned and complained about gaining my weight back. Now is the time to change. I rebooted my weight loss on 8/19/12- today was my weekly weigh-in. I started at 238 and this morning I weighed 232.8. I ate healthier every day cut out soda and upped my water drinking at least 6 cups every day. I got in extra walking everywhere I could. I only made it to the gym on Friday, but I did walk a trail in the park on Sunday.
My experience back at the gym was great. I belong to our local YMCA which is really nice and an accepting place. I got on the elliptical for the first time in about a year. I love the elliptical, I sweat and feel great. The only bad part of it was I wanted to go harder, but my body isn't there yet. I know in time it will be.
My major temptations this week were Donuts in the break-room at work on Wednesday, and pizza my family ordered late last night. My strategy for overcoming was avoidance, plain and simple. At work I ate breakfast in my office instead. At home took a bubble bath with scented candles lit.
I will admit i was a little edgy and grouchy this week. But at times I felt better then I have in a long time. Little peaks of the energy i have been missing.
My plan for the week ahead is more of the same. I want to go to the gym at least 3 days this week. I want to keep up my healthier eating and keep my water intake high. I will log on to spark every day this week.
Until next week if not sooner. Later Baby ;)
