Disappointed but still Upbeat!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

emoticon I don't have a scale at home at the moment so to weigh myself I walk as fast as I can during my lunch hour to Bed Bath and Beyond which is 6 loooong blocks away from my job... It generally takes me 20 minutes to make it back and forth and another 7 minutes to get to the back of the store where the scales are... So yes I was able to fit that into my 30 min power walks that I take during my lunch breaks every day.

emoticon Anyway, you can probably guess where I am headed with the disappointment - yup I gained 2 lbs. (at least I think I did anyway) I must remember that this is a demo scale and that I am weighing myself on a carpet with different type of clothes on each time I go so it will vary a lot. But still... I know that I haven't lost anything this week because I feel bloated (thanks to the pms - take out the "p" though) and because I totally fudged up this weekend. But hey I am still focused on using this website, I know it works, its me that is messing up and this site teaches me exactly how I am doing it wrong...

emoticonBut tonight is ZUMBA night! I can't wait to get back there and have that wonderful glow that I experienced last week! I mean I do try to do some form of light cardio (walking during my commute and during my lunch break) but I don't really break a sweat, I only elevate my heart rate a little and I don't feel particularly "happy" like I do after I do zumba.

emoticon I love the fact that I am really doing something for myself, its something that I should've done a long time ago!

Love, the future me! emoticon

    Have fun at Zumba! I'm hoping to start going to my gym's Zumba class, but I'm waiting for a toe injury to heal first.

    emoticon Here's to your power walks. Hang in there, the scale shouldn't be your only measure.

    On a side note, I did not lose for a week, then gained, then gained again, but this morning when I stepped on the scale I lost 3 pounds....not doing anything different. I've read that your body has "set points" where it tries to maintain...hence plateaus, etc. Just keep making the right life style choices and you'll get there.

    I am so impressed with your lunch time power walks. That is just emoticon

    Have fun at Zumba
