Finally a good drop!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

As any of you that follow my blogs know. I'm the QUEEN of the 1/2 pound loss. I know that it's still a good loss but I have wanted to push that just a tad and try to get something bigger and still be healthy.

This past week I signed up with a personal trainer. I also trimmed my M-F calorie range by 200 calories. This makes eating at the top of my normal range on the weekend seem like a treat but still keeps me in a slight deficit mode even on those weekend days.

The BIG difference was in my fitness. How long I have been doing it wrong. If you want the specifics look back a few blogs. It certainly paid off. I lost 2.1 pounds this week. That's HUGE for me 2 + years in on this journey to Health & Fitness.

What will I do this week to keep my momentum?

1) Weight Training at the gym
2) CARDIO every day in my "golden zone"
3) Careful tracking of food with attention to QUALITY calories.
5) No Nighttime snacking.
6) Getting out of my chair - I have a chiming clock and when it chimes I have to get up and exercise or clean for 10 minutes!

Hoping to make this 2 weeks in a row!

Pressing On!

    Thanks for blogging about this. It is so very helpful to see what you have done that has helped. Last week I stayed the same and this week was only down .6 inspite of eating within the range and doing 90 min of exercise! Your blog has me thinking about what changes to make. Thanks.

    I always feel a little bit guilty when I read your blogs because you work so hard at your fitness and deserve your success and more. emoticon

It makes me feel like I'm not trying hard enough. I need to follow your example and get moving more. emoticon

    Congratulations! I've recently added something similar to your "getting out of my chair" item. That alone should make a difference.

    Soldier on Suzanne! That trainer deserves a big ole hug but YOU did the work! emoticon emoticon emoticon I "say" this but you HAVE been pushing. Never, ever quitting for as long as I've known you and no matter what the scale said. THAT deserves a emoticon It is about so much more than the # on the scale and yet this is the impetus that you so deserve lady!
