Bursting Into Summer - Week 3

Burst Into Summer Challenge

I don't get me! I mean here I am telling myself and everyone around me how desperately I want to lose weight, get healthy, exercise and be fit BUT my actions tell everyone just the opposite! I haven't been losing weight (in fact this week I gained to the tune of 1.4 pounds), I haven't been exercising, and I'm definitely NOT fit! I'm doing stupid stuff to sabotage my own efforts. I buy and then eat crappy sugary foods that I know will not help in my weight loss journey. Instead of exercising (now that my legs feel normal again) I just sit around on my computer or in front of the tv vegging out. I don't get me!!

The month of May I lost more than 8 pounds and I was so happy and proud of myself! The month of June I just went back to my old habits and now here it is July (half way through the year) and I'm still NOT doing what I know it will take to lose weight! I guess I need another "AHA" moment in my life to kick me back into high gear!

Yesterday I had planned to do the bootcamp workout that the Sisterhood is offering us and about 3 p.m. I cme down with the most incredible headache! I didn't even do the #tworkout and I almost always do it! I took tylenol, put That Other Kid to bed and got ready for bed myself! I took a picture of the clock on my nightstand because I wanted to have proof that I can and in fact did go to bed early! I was in bed by 9:35p.m. I read in bed for a little bit and then went to sleep. I slept till 9am this morning and I feel much better! My neck seems tight but maybe that is just cuz I need to pop it.

Anywho, here are the numbers for this weeks weigh in -- just for the record, I was not surprised to see a gain. I didnt really pay much attention to the calories this week and it definitely showed!

Beginning challenge weight: 194.6
Last week -- 194.6
This week -- 196.0

The challenge for this week is to NOT EAT FAST FOOD for the week! It will do my body good to stay away from this crap so I plan to do my best on this challenge.
Last weeks challenge was to eat 5 servings of fruits/veggies and I failed miserably on this challenge. There really was no reason either as I had plenty of both in the house. Just being lazy and not wanting to do what I know is right, I guess!
I have continued drinking plenty of water (I usually get about 100 ounces a day) and there were days over the weekend that I drank more than 124 ounces cuz it's so stinking hot outside that is the only thing that really helps quench my thirst! to get my lazy butt moving....hope ya'll had a great week! and if you didn't lets motivate each other, k?? Here's to a better week for EVERYONE!

Isn’t this good idea replace your extra fat with muscles? Diet and exercise are the best option to gain weight. It’s natural and become very effective when they both are mixed. Reduce stress in your life and always motivate yourself. Improve your sleeping pattern so that your metabolism works properly. One can try some yoga and massage to gain weight fast.

Anyone can benefit from simple breathing techniques. Being mindful of something as basic as breathing, and altering one's breathing habits and patterns, can be both energizing and calming, depending on what you want to achieve with breathwork. Thanks.
