So, I have much to discuss in this blog post. I was doing well before the holidays and starting my new semester. I was going to the gym every Thursday and working out for about an hour. I did more exercising, but that is what sticks out in my mind.
I had practically gained back all of the weight I lost in my first semester of the year. Towards the beginning of the semester I tried my first group fitness class
called Wake Up and Shape Up which my roommate and friend now calls Wushu. It was a bit much for me at the time. I went a few weeks without exercising at all. It was terrible. That was probably the time when I gained my weight back because my scale's batteries were dead up to last week.
Last week when I checked I was back to the weight before starting sparkpeople again. I checked that on Thursday morning after my shower. This was because I was curious how much I weighed and the afternoon before I finished my first Nike Training Club workout Body Flexor. I ate out the next two nights not watching what I ate at all. This evening checked my weight again because I was worried about the two nights of eating without any constraint on portions or type of food I ate.( It's a terrible habit to check the scale that frequently, but I'm working on it.) When I checked this evening it was down 2 lbs. There was no exercising since Wednesday. I panicked a little when I saw that because I thought I wasn't eating enough, and since I didn't have a legitimate dinner (meaning I had oatmeal at 5 or so) chose to make a sandwich.
I'm on different weight loss sites because I like the variety, but I mainly go between Sparkpeople and Fatsecret. I just joined a challenge on FatSecret that is to do 10 minutes of dancing every day which decidedly would also help me accomplish my 10 minutes of exercise every day for Sparkpeople as well.
I'm so excited for it! I've decided in this time of the challenge that I will learn to belly dance. I've been wanting to learn for years, and this would be the perfect chance.
So, I know I made a long post out of a short period of time. It had to be done, trust me. My brain was going into overload with all this.
for reading, and sorry if it seems a little scattered.
