Hitting the first Plateau?
Thursday, May 09, 2013
I have most of this week off from work; I don't know why. Next week I'm working Monday-Friday, which is weird. Anyway. This week I worked Monday and Tuesday at my two jobs, and now I have the rest of this week off. It's kind of throwing me off.
Last week I lost 9 ounces. Slow progress is still progress! I have to keep repeating this. I finally got a tape measure and did some measurements a couple weeks ago. Hips and waist the same as they were in December (last time I measured), bicep and thigh lost an inch each. Progress? Then I measured again on Saturday and my hips and waist lost inches, while my bicep and thigh gained? o.O All other measurement charts show an upward trend, so that's good I guess. My jeans were starting to feel looser, but then I switched to another pair in the same size and they felt snug, so I guess I just need to wash the first pair.
Anyway. Last week has kind of blurred together. I didn't really stick to my exercise schedule, and I had a lot of sugar, although I still mostly managed to meet my goals.
This week I've been feeling less motivated. Tired because of work on Tuesday, and yesterday and today just not wanting to get up and move. I did manage to do my pilates yesterday, but I never got around to my walk. I still need to do today's walk and Wii active. Pilates is getting easier, or perhaps just repetitive; I need some new core exercises or at least a new routine. Kind of the same with walking. Last week I didn't feel like jogging much because of work, so it was kind of a regression to just walking. I think I need some cardio variances. I thought about going swimming today, but it turned out to be too cold. I need to get my bike tuned up; the gears don't shift right. I don't know where I'd ride though.
Been eating better this week. More balanced. Yesterday I cooked split pea soup and made burritos, now I have a ton of leftovers for the rest of this week.
I don't really have a conclusion for this post, except it's getting late and I need to get off the couch.
