Figure it out already!
Sunday, February 10, 2013
I reconnected with a scrapbookers blog (Cathy Z) who is so funny. She is so real about life. We are just about the same age, have been married the same amount of time and yes both struggle with this weight thing. I hadn't been on her blog in a while because my scrapping mojo has left me since I am all confused with the digital aspect of pictures and scrapbooking. So I hadn't kept up with her other issue- her eat well move more campaign. She recapped her 2012 where she started at a certain weight and ended the year 10 lbs heavier and that was after gaining back 19 additional lbs of her previous weight loss. So up 29 of the 40 lbs she had lost. I feel for her. It sucks. Always comparing to where you have been. Part of the blog I read said those of you without this weight struggle are probably saying figure it out already. I was just thinking this the other day. How do "normal" weighted people figure it out? How do they have the magic button to stop the indulging? I just really want to figure it out.
This week I met all my weight loss goals for working out and eating within my points and tracking everything. Tomorrow is weigh in day so we shall see how that corresponds to the scale. This was a really tough week. I ended up working out 5 days in a row because I had a pretty good idea zumba would be canceled Saturday because of Nemo which it was so I worked out Thursday night instead of SAturday. AFter Mondays double work out of strength and zumba I had a headache- prob dehydrated. That headache continued through Friday- off and on in intensity but Wednesday and Friday were definately migraines. That sucks. I had a couple of days where I ate junk (cookies) and more than I had planned but I am coming to the end of the week still within my weekly points. My past success was helped by the fact that on Monday I started fresh with a new weeks worth of points and a fresh clean slate. I really think that is needed each week so I don't dwell on past "mistakes".
My plan for this week was to try Bikram yoga. I am rethinking this because of the dehydration this past week. It was really bad. The headache on Friday was almost more than I could handle.
I am going to think on what I want my workout schedule to be this week and I will post the plan tomorrow.
