The dreaded week 2

Monday, November 26, 2012

Day 2 of Week 2 and I am still going strong, with the exception of a headache that just will not leave today. Grrr. I didn't work out really today, just did a few short sparkvideos online, and called it good considering how I feel today.

I am having trouble eating all of my calories today too, still have almost 200 to get to the minimum to eat daily. My water intake has been ok today though, I plan on getting in 2 more cups to get my daily 8!

Been super tired too, however, I plan on getting my 30-45min of cardio in tomorrow morning before I head to class. 4 weeks left of this term and then I have almost 3 weeks to concentrate on myself! woohoo!

As for the title of this entry, week 2 is always the hardest. Seems like every other time I've lost weight that the 2nd week either results in no weight loss or worse, weight gain. I have stepped on the scale both days this week however, just to keep myself going and remind myself that I haven't really gained anything, and no loss is better than a gain!

I have also ordered a pedometer that is supposed to be one of the best on the market, got a amazing deal on it! It should be here by Thursday, and I can't wait to get it! My mom even got one! I talk to my mom daily on the phone, but we only see each other once a year if we're lucky. So I'm hoping we can kinda compete with each other with that handy little gadget! As if competing with myself isn't enough. emoticon

    Sounds great Dorisheroff! I also like the emoticons, they are super fun! Just take it easy since you have knee and back issues, Id hate to see you get injured and be down and out for a while. Looking forward to hearing the great progress you will make toward your goals!

    I have a pedometer (or at least some parts of it) that I got from the Apple Store. It comes with a program for walking. I have never had all the pieces in one place at the same time since I bought it in the spring! How is that for putting up barriers? Not sure which side of me doesn't want to use the thing...maybe my big backside!

    However, you are inspiring me and i will begin a diligent search of our office (a place that needs to be cleaned anyway) to see if I can assemble the whole deal and get started with you on Thursday or Friday.

    Thanks for telling me how to do the emoticons! It is fun to search through them and they even help me to see the sports I could be trying if I lose enough to be comfortable despite my knee and back issues
