Focusing on Health this week, rather than weight.

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I have to admit, I am feeling really disappointed today. I have been going to the gym consistently, eating within my allotted calorie/ nutrition plan and taking weekly classes and nightly walks. I have actually gained a pound back! I know muscle weighs more than fat (blah, blah, blah), but it doesn't help when I know how hard I am working and I gain rather than lose.

To that end, I have decided while I do care about the weight that I am losing, this week I will have to focus on the fact that I am feeling healthier than I have been as well as building my weight loss foundation.

I finally got my juicer last night and am planning on testing it out tonight and doing some major juicing this weekend. I just need a kick start to see that all this isn't in vain.

On the bright side, a friend told me about a new app called Songza for my iPhone that customizes playlists for working out and other activities. I was getting tired of the stuff I had on my iPod and was happy to find something to keep me guessing during my workout!

Wish me luck!

    My first month of working out hard I gained 2lbs. I was crying with frustration. Then I realized that my pants were feeling a little loose and I was indeed feeling better in general. So I started paying more attention to the inches I was losing rather than the scale. So many things can affect the number on the scale (time of day, water weight, clothing, etc) that I use that as a general guideline now. emoticon

    I've had the same frustrations. You know just to hang in there and the weight will start coming off. When you gain after all the work you do - it's like a punch to the gut. But hang in there - and keep focusing on doing this for all the right reasons!
