Resting...Thinking..

Resting...Thinking...(soon to be) Sleeping...

If you have read any of my blog posts, all of this will seem quite repetitive...However, I just want to complain and it feels so good to write it out...


Overall, I think this was a decent week..I definitely did not get the results that I wanted...But I guess life is full of those little bumps in the road....

Sunday morning when i weighed myself...I hit 208...(yay, new low weight)...I decided that I would vamp up my exercise and completed my first run...I was achey for the first couple days but it was survivable...

Monday morning when i weighed myself...I hit 212.4...(umm, not cool)...Yes, I have read up articles and the comments left to me so I understand why it went up....but hello? this is not even remotely cool...I'm trying to lose weight...why is exercise making me gain? I just want to throw the stupid scale out but I can't....Zumba was killer and I was taking water breaks just to give my achy muscles a chance to rest..

Tuesday morning the darn scale said the same thing. I took a break from the treadmill because my legs were still hurting and I was just in that bummed mood of not wanting to do anything because what is the point...

Wednesday morning, the scale and I are on a no-talking relationship....Zumba was a little easier at night and the pain in my legs was almost gone....

Thursday morning...I didn't even go near the scale...I did complete my running day though. The running was actually easier but the breathing part hurt...

Friday morning...the scale played stupid and said about the same weight as before....Zumba was just tiring but I completed it...

This morning...the scale went down to 211.6...I'm not actually even excited because i'm sure it will be back up tomorrow and I'll get all bummed again...I didn't complete any running today...it was just an icky day and I just wanted a break....I broke a few eating rules today as well...I just couldn't stick with it today....oh well, there is always tomorrow right?

Tomorrow morning....I'm not sure if I will be friends with the scale or not...I sure hope so....I plan on completing another running day in the morning..but we'll see on that anyway...I just don't feel like I want to commit to anything today...

I know this was just an off week...I haven't been getting as much sleep as I feel I need....but 9 hours just seems like a lot for a 23 year old. I'm not getting quite as much water as I know I need either, and i know that makes me tired too...and some of my food choices have been questionable but its just such an off week that I haven't really cared...Somedays, I just don't know what is wrong with me...

My goal is to simply make next week better...that seems somewhat do-able...(I hope)

    You can do it! Next week will be better. As I just posted on a few of your other blogs this morning, I have two of the same thoughts after reading this:

1. Your muscles are aching, so they have been working hard and you are gaining muscle. This might be impacting your weight loss. While the scale might be staying the same or even going up a little, this is okay. You might be gaining muscle while losing fat. Muscle will help you lose more weight in the long run. Also, one month I did not see the scale move much, but when I took my measurements at the end of the month, I realized I lost inches, which meant I probably gained lean muscle.

2. Focus on breathing deeply when you are running. It will get easier. I've seen such a difference in my breathing in the past month. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource
/fitness_articles.asp?id=823 has a section about breathing that might help. It makes time to train your lungs too!

Make this coming week a great week! Take it one day and step at a time.
