PAWSE UP ( week 9 )

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

OK, last week was not a real good week. not sure what all effected it but was not good. Ending up down .4 pounds but all week was a struggle. Plus changed shifts so was trying to change sleep schedule as well. RRROOAAAARRR!!! This weeks PAWSE will be:

Plan/ Prepare
will continue planning meals out. will continue preparing meals on off days for rest of the week. Has helped tremendously with work and eating right. not as rushed, more time to workout. They have posted overtime for this Sat like last week. Got my first shift job so once I get on it will help with sleep.

Have been using both nutrition and fitness trackers. Pushing myself to try to get in an extra workout here and there. Have been watching deficient. First week was way off. This week was a lot closer. Have really came a long way with trackers. This weeks deficit was in the 11,065. Way out of line for what I lost.

Last weekwas a struggle. Everytime I got on scale I showed a gain. Know I had a big loss the week before and changed my work/sleep schedule. Going to keep looking for something new just for the change up. Got My Hip Hop Abs videos and started them. Loved them and felt them. Have added a kettle bell workout and have ordered exercise bike.doing my best to try to keep body confused.

SET a non scale and Scale goal.
My non scale goal would be to continue eating healthy.
my scale goal is to loose 2 - 3 lbs this week. Realistically I need to be at 1 1/2 to 2.

catching those extra minutes whenever I can. This past week worked in some unplanned extra walking(Walk, Walk,Walk, Walk) with Leslie Sansone. and some Hip Hop Abs. As much as don't like listening to her say walk, walk, walk, walk she does keep me moving and heart rate elevated.

Hope this week goes a little better as things turn to normal again. Getting a lot more sleep now as well.

    Any time the sleep schedule changes, it's tough. Nice job on the weight loss despite the struggle!

    You've been posting some huge losses week after week, so it makes sense that once or twice (and especially during a week where you're completely changing your sleep cycle) the scale is going to under-report.
    I think you still had a good week, even though the scale didn't put up the numbers. Your body still got stronger and tighter this week for sure.

    At least you're moving in the right direction and doing the right things. Don't get discouraged!

    I have to mute Leslie sometimes emoticon or I tell her to shut up a lot too. You can do this Doug. It will take your body a bit to readjust is all.
