I'm a scale fanatic - I admit it and I'm not changing - hopped on this AM to 1/2 lb gain - I've been exceptional in my eating so that was a momentary
but then as promised it was measurement day so I hauled out the tape measure and I lost 1" in each of the 3 spots I measured! 3 down - 24 to go (I know that's not happening). Workouts are not happening at work any longer - that was short lived - I'm the only one who wants to and I'm not allowed to do it alone. So I came home and did Jillian Michaels again but this time I did level 2! It's funny how some things (involving thighs for example) are doable for me but others like jumping jacks are impossible - I did try again and managed a very spastic jumping something and went back to jogging in place - I'll keep trying maybe someday I'll manage. Then I went for my run - I ran non stop - even up that big hill that I had managed to conquer last year but not this year. I was so proud of myself - certain that when I finally looked at my fitbit I would be very close to 3 miles - maybe more - well I finally stopped and it was the least amount of steps I've (ran) all year! I was so angry I could have taken my sneakers off and thrown them through a window! So angry I had to fight back tears - I blamed it on the fitbit - hopped in my car - dripping with sweat and drove my route and guess what>>>>the fitbit was right - a bit less than 2 1/2 miles! I'm guessing by running and walking the fitbit does not log consistantly so I was getting more distance than I deserved before - I hate to run - this almost convinced me to hang up those shoes - what good does it do - I'll wake tonight with leg cramps and I'll limp around tomorrow.
So I pulled off all those nasty sweaty clothes - thinking to myself that they now weighed two pounds and I jumped on the scale - 3 pounds down from this morning! So if it doesn't get you one way it will get you another - the weight was up but the inches down this AM - my distance was down and my mood in the dumps but my weight was down this PM - something is happening - just got to stick with it.
My results for the day:
Challenge for Week Beginning June 14
Decrease calorie count of snacks after work by 1/2 - 2x per week but still keep it light
June 16, June 17
No eating after dinner - 3 x per week - This one still tough - keeping it as is
I can't do the heavier lunch smaller dinner thing - it just does not work with my lifestyle so I am replacing it with another goal - Be in bed by 10:30 - 3x per week
More protein and less carbs - 3 x per week
June 15, June 16, June 17
Run twice a week - this will be hard but I will try
