Sometimes You Just Need to Start Over
Tuesday, March 11, 2014
I'm treating Yesterday as my "new" start date. Why? Well, over the course of the last two years i've lost roughly 75lbs. In the course of the past two weeks i've GAINED back almost 15 of those pounds. So i'm starting back at Day 1 at 259lbs. I'm thankful that I only gained 15lbs and that i'm still in the 200's versus being back in the 300's. I know what i need to do...we ALL know what we need to do. It's the actual doing that's the hard part.
I got up early yesterday morning and walked 4 miles. After work i headed over to the gym to jump on the stationary bike and then take an aqua class. I love the aqua class! Afterwards they have a ST circuit that i had been wanting to try out but i've been too nervous to actually do. :Last night i did it! It had been so long since i did ST other then the kettlebell and dumbbells i have at home. WOW is my body sore today!
I woke up this morning (I'm an avid weigher) and jumped on the scale. It read 257.8lbs. So i'm headed back in the right direction.
What did i do?
- I cut back on the amount of calories (I had been WAY over eating these last two weeks)
- I watched my sodium (It went no higher than 1600)
- I worked out hard to create a sweat (i had been half @ssing it these past few weeks)
Basically I did what we all know we have to do when we go off track.
