One of my biggest goals in the past five weeks or so has been to weigh in only once during the week, Sunday. But this week I gave in to my own curiosity. About four weeks ago I gained weight during a weigh-in, and I'm guessing it was from the normal pms or period symptoms that we deal with monthly as women...I hate that! So now here I am about four weeks later and am dreading the weigh in this afternoon. Yesterday and the day before I used the scale at the gym (the one I always use) and I hadn't gained anything, but I hadn't lost much either. So I'm not looking forward to this afternoon at the gym. But I do have to stop using the scale so often, it just stresses me out.
I also set up my first meeting with a personal trainer for this week. I'm nervous, as I always am when I think someone might push/pull me from my comfort zone, but I need it as well. So far all of my weight loss has been from my changed diet and cardio but that won't work forever. I really want to have lost 100 pounds by Jan. 1 2014 and that means I have to do strength training and also add variety to my workouts. I know myself well enough to know I have no idea where to start. I watch videos on Sp but when I'm at the gym, I forget it all.
Tuesday is the big day with the trainer, and finding out numbers and measurements according to her. That also makes me nervous!
So today I got ahead in my homework, did all of my cooking for the week and am getting ready for a couple basketball games this afternoon. Between the games, I'll be at the gym! :)
Every day I wonder if what I'm doing will actually stick, and if I can keep going, but then I log onto SP and all of your support and encouragement keeps me going! I know that the days I'm away from my computer are going to be the hardest days but I keep going. Isn't that the name of the game? Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
