Having a great week & so PROUD of myself

Saturday, April 07, 2012

Well, this week didn't start off very well. Trouble with my Invisalign left me feeling miserable and I really didn't feel like doing anything. Then Tuesday our modem died, so we didn't have internet for 3 days. That led to me not tracking my food, though I was still conscious about what I ate (for the most part). I was sure that this week was a bust. But I didn't give up.

Thursday, I went to my second ever Zumba class and left feeling so much better. I didn't notice my teeth ache at all, and I felt my motivation coming back. I am so addicted to Zumba now that I have been wanting to go back to class every day since, lol!

But the best part of the week is today. Two years ago I bought a treadmill. I was so excited when I got it, but the belt started going off track and after countless hours trying, I couldn't figure out how to fix it. So I gave up and it's been a shelf ever since. I even thought about giving it away when I moved, but couldn't make myself give away something that cost over $400. Thank goodness I didn't!!

Reading the spark forums today, I got reinspired. I googled how to do it and gave it one more try. Something clicked in my mind this time, and I understood. Now my treadmill works again! I'm soooo super excited. I even went 2 miles on it and my new heart rate monitor (Polar FT4 which I LOVE) said I burned 430 calories. That puts me at 860 calories burned this which means I reached my weekly calories burned goal of 800.

And the cherry on top is when I weighed in this morning I finally reached my first minigoal of 169 lbs. Oh and yesterday I did 90 situps and 60 modified pushups. WOW! I'm feeling so great. Just goes to show how it's never too late to turn a bad week around. :)
