Keepin’ the Party Train Rollin’

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

So I lost another 2 lbs last week, which is 2 lbs less then what I weighed before, Woohoo!!!! However, my goal is 5 lbs a week. And while I realize the last week of Sept. was unusual, no bike, pity party, etc. I still need to find more ways of packing in a good workout in order to bump my numbers.

I used to have a gym membership to LA Fitness. It was right on my way home from work. I’d bike to work and hit the gym on my way home, it was great. Then I changed jobs and my new office was in the opposite direction. So I had to pass my house on my way to the gym. And of course, that’s not going to happen. You see; if my rump comes within a certain distance of my couch it’s magnetically drawn with a force slightly stronger then the gravitational pull of a Super-massive Black Hole.

But I work for a university now, and they have a new, high tech gym/rec. center. If I take a slightly different route home I will be able to hit the gym after work.

I figure if my bike commute coupled with my portion control nets me at least 2 lbs a week, then a good weight training workout 5 days a week could bump my number closer to my goal.

And if I can get my energy level up a little more, then I might be able to get up a half an hour earlier to do my Pilates DVD in the mornings before work. (Though that’s a bit ambitious at the moment.)

It’s a plan!

    2 lbs in a week is really good...don't get discouraged if your weight loss rate isn't exactly what you think it should be. I I feel like I'm losing more slowly than I want, but I still see loss so I feel okay about it. It's especially hard when you see others around you lose more quickly. One of my best friends started out about the same size as me...and we started losing weight at the same time. While I track and exercise and eat right, she just eats once a day (about 600 calories) and never exercises. She is almost 2 sizes smaller than I am now, and has noticeably lost more weight. It's hard not to be jealous, but in the long run I feel like I am treating my body better.
