Feeling FIERCE!!

Saturday, December 20, 2008

I did my 15 min Turbo Jam workout this morning. The time FLEW by. In fact, I didn't feel like I would die this time, and I did pretty well. I want to have a totally fluid workout before I move onto the 20 min session. I love exercise. :o)

My mom came by last night and said "You look like you're losing weight!" Yay. My scale is telling me different, but whatever. I guess what looks like weight loss is toning. Does that come before the actual loss? Because I would REALLY like to see different numbers on the scale now.

I'm thinking I need to kick something up a notch. I'm not ready to increase my time exercising (not yet), but maybe I should look at my food intake again, or add strength training?

As good as I am feeling about this...transition..I'm very nervous. I'm starting to get worried that I will fizzle out, like I always do when getting into a regiment. Something always happens, some emergency always pops up and after the dust settles, I am 10lbs heavier than before the crap hit the fan. There's no real way to guard against stuff like that, except that I have to stick to the plan: the little things, not the overall picture. I usually get lost in the overall weight loss picture, negating the little things (like eating right, EXERCISING) that really make the difference.

At least there is a plan now. Maybe that will be the difference this time. Even though I don't SEE any changes, I am feeling them and I LIKE what I feel.

    Hey Girl,
    I know your pain!!!! I felt like you were inside my head when you wrote this blog!!! Maybe the toning starts before the scale moves. I am having that same problem. But, I am changing up what I eat. So I am controlling my lunch AND dinner. This week, I am amped because I found a few recipies in one of my MANY cookbooks that will keep my mouth entertained enough that I wont think about fast food....One day at a time....YOU CAN DO IT GIRL!

    Keep up the great work with exercising. Before you know it you'll be to 20 minutes and then 30 minutes. Be consistent and you'll start seeing the pounds come off.

    I don't see a difference in my weight when I look in a mirror but my family and friends can tell. My clothes are fitting me differently. It's a wonderful feeling and a great motivator.

    You can do this!!
