Hot for Halloween 100 day challenge-day 24
Monday, August 15, 2011
I intended to blog every day, but time seems to have slipped through my fingers the past few days. I managed to do 15 minutes of step aerobics Friday, but I fizzled out after that. I keep sleeping way too late and then deciding that I don't have enough time to do anything. I'm putting a stop to that, though! I'm not sleeping past 10 tomorrow; I should be able to do what I need to do! I felt like I never had enough time when I was working full time, so now that I'm unemployed, I should have plenty, right? I must have a time management problem. However, my health is my main focus now. That's why I've been making it a point to workout before I eat breakfast. This way, I can at least get that done before I blow the whole day. I know I watch way too much TV. That is most of my problem. Its just that I have a DVR that seems to be permanently between 90-100% full. I'm always trying to clear the list by watching shows but never make a dent. Oh, well. My biggest frustration lately is how the scale shot up. Thursday morning I weighed 161.6# Friday was 263# and Saturday a whopping 267.6#! I don't know how I manage to gain over four pounds in one day!
This used to be enough to make me quit trying for a few days but not any more! I will never give up, never surrender! I got back down to 264.6# this morning. As long as I get back to eating the way I know I really want to, that is healthfully and preventatively, I should be able to get back on track. Today was an off day, but I didn't work out yesterday at all and did not get my 10K steps. I didn't come close today, either, but I will tomorrow. I also decided to change the SP ST workout I've been doing and see if that kicks up the muscle building. Even though that darn scale isn't cooperating, I can see that I'm getting thinner. I think I'm even catching a glimpse of muscle tone peeking out from under the fat. Plus, my bf told me he can tell I'm losing weight, and he's proud of me for all my hard work. That made me feel better that he can even tell I'm losing. I will keep going until I cross the finish line at 135#! I can do it!
