Power Of One Weigh In
Time for the week's weigh in with the Sisterhood.
I didn't handle this week very well. I let my frustration over my lack of progress get me down and I just didn't really pay much attention to my eating. I did change up my exercise routine, so I think I did that part right. I have been sticking to drinking my water. I have gotten to the point where I feel dehydrated without at least 100 ounces of water every day.
Anyway, here are the stats for today.
Starting weight on 3/25/09: 226.8
Starting challenge weight: 196.0
Last week's weight: 197.0
This week's weight: 196.8
So...I did lose .2 pounds this week which is at least moderately encouraging. Considering I didn't monitor my food intake this week and I over-indulged in chocolates and mexican food for Valentines Day I'm pleased that I lost ANY weight. I did change up my exercise routine and even went to Zumba class on Saturday and then again today. The jury is still out on whether or not I "like" it, but it is different and that is what I am looking for right now....anything different to change my body and make it start losing weight again.
So...for this coming week I am going to start logging the food and making sure it is within the calorie allotment for my goals. I will continue drinking my water and I'm also going to continue changing up the exercise routines. I started working out with my EaSports Active2 game and I'm doing the 9 week program where I do the workouts 4 times a week on the hard setting. If I do this in addition to the classes at the gym and do some of the other games I have maybe my body will start changing again. I'm also going to run "some". I have found that I don't want to run all the time but occasionally it is freeing when the weather cooperates. My seasonal allergies are starting to be a challenge so I will just have to do this when I can.
I'm hoping that by next week I will start seeing some results from the changes I started making this week so that I can end this challenge weighing in at least a little bit less than when I started it. Although it isn't feasible for me to meet my goal weight for this challenge I do want to weigh LESS than when I started it 7 weeks ago!!
Hope ya'll have had a good week!
