28 day boot camp challenge (3rd week on SP)

Sunday, July 07, 2013

So I started the 28 day boot camp challenge this week and so far so good. emoticon I think for week two I am going to bump up the SP videos to two rounds along with my 30 minutes of cardio. I've been trying out different cardio workout's because I want to find something that I enjoy AND is effective!

I did REALLY well on nutrition as well. And I put up a visual motivator, a virtual picture of me at my weight now and another of what I will look like at goal. I put it on my refrigerator so that every time I go into the danger zone (my kitchen) I will see it and be reminded of what I am working so hard for. Think I might print up another to put on my bathroom mirror. I love looking at that beautiful girl emoticon .

What's bothering me is my weight loss (or lack thereof) for the week. I didn't lose anything emoticon . I guess I should be happy that I didn't GAIN anything. I'm not sure why its bothering me so much. I've told myself over and over from the day I started that it's not just about what's on the scale, but when I looked at the scale all of that went out of the window. It's not discouraging me, but it is making me question myself. Am I eating the wrong things? Not enough? too much? Am I not exercising enough? Should I switch up the kinds of workouts that I am doing?

I'm feeling down, but definitely not out. On to week 4!!

    I can understand how that could put anyone down.
    I'm sure that from when you first posted this until now, you've changed and maybe lost some.
    Remember that when you exercise, you might not lose weight but maybe you're losing fat and gaining muscle :) Always remember that scale numbers don't matter but you might lose inches instead!
    Keep up and good luck!
