This is going to be a sulky blog for lack of a better term. This last week was the first week where I really fell off track. I overate, under-exercised. I ended up getting measured today. According to their scale, I lost 2 lbs. According to my scale, I am up a pound. I have only lost 0.25 inches from all the measurements. I am feeling so disappointed in myself. I am just feeling so very down on myself.
The exercise plan:
Monday: strength training, 20 minute stair master
Tuesday: 40 minute exercise bike or rest. Ended up resting-
Wednesday: rest of exercise bike- 40 min bike ride
Thursday: strength training, then 20 minute treadmill
Friday: 40 minute elliptical
Saturday: walk or Yoga
Tuesday: 17 calories91, over 91 calories
Wednesday: 1322 calories
Thursday: 1436 calories
Friday: 1628 calories
Saturday: 1676 calories.
I know I did worse this week than I have done. The worst feeling is knowing that I can never outrun a bad diet, but I didn't feel I was doing that bad. I need to start measuring my food religiously, and eat better dinners as I do fair with breakfast and lunch (cooking up a batch of baked oatmeal, have chili/salad for lunch tomorrow). I need to up my fruit and veggies as well. I also fell drinking water, so I need to get back into that. Knowing I need to be better eating, I also know I need to be a little more lenient about working out. When I missed my workouts, I beat myself up so much mentally. I knew it was unhealthy even while I was doing it.
So, my goals this week:
Monday: Personal Training Session
Tuesday: 40 minute stationary bike
Thursday: strength training, 20 minute treadmill
Friday: 40 minute Elliptical
Short term, what I want to accomplish: today is a lost cause on water, but starting tomorrow I am going to get my 8 glasses. I need to incorporate more freggies, so hubby is going to shop tomorrow to help get us healthy sides/snacks. Finally, I need to be sure I get a snack near the end of the work day so I don't run out of steam. It should be easy enough to start working on. I am going to really concentrate on water this week as well as the snack
Long term, this month I am shifting my schedule around so that I may work a little earlier, but not have days that last till 7-8 PM...which gets me closer to being mentally healthier/happier. The next big struggle I am trying to work through is do I need a personal trainer. I feel like I was working so hard on my own this week, and yet still didn't do well. Maybe if I really invest in personal trainer with someone peeking in with what I am doing, I can really get to where I need to be.
So, I don't know. I am just frustrated and disappointed. But, I am going to push on tomorrow, and hopefully keep moving towards a positive end result.
