Gain but NOT discouraged

Sunday, February 01, 2009

Well I went from 204 to 206 however I am NOT discouraged. Let me explain why: first because I am cycling and knew that might happen and it did. Second, I know that next week should show a loss! Third, I've added cardio and strength training which means my muscles are gaining mass and I'm up for that! Also, I've noticed on the Biggest Loser that the 2nd week seems to be this odd week where strange things happen. So I will continue my cardio, strength training, journaling, water consumption and making better food choices because this is a lifestyle change. And while the scale isn't showing a change...I feel better! I actually feel my muscles around my lungs getting stronger. As well as my thighs, calves, lower back...I can go on but you get the picture.

This is the beginning of my 3rd week and this weeks goals are:

1. Cardio - 7 days
2. Strength training - 3 days
3. Find or create a good stretching routine to use after cardio and strength training

Another reason I am not discouraged is that I'm building good, new habits! Week 1 was to add cardio 5 days a week...I achieved that. Week 2 was to have 6 days of cardio and add 3 days of strength training...I achieved that. Also, I am journaling my food, water and exercise on this site. So because of all that I am helping my self-esteem, giving myself consistency and achieving goals.

Thank you to Spark People and all the members! Spark People ROCK!!!

    You have the perfect attitude, and because of that you WILL be successful! Too many people let the scale determine their success rather than focusing on the positive improvements they are making in their lifestyles. Congratulations!
