I exercised 16/30 days this month. Definately could have been better. The number may be higher since I missed a few days logging here so it could be as high as 18 or 19.
I took new classes (pilates reformer, yoga, burn). I’ve been spinning at least once a week. I’ve been weight training. I’ve been burning insane calories when I have been working out and I always feel good after. Having a hot tub to soak in after is also key in motivating me to go. It feels amazing and helps me relax and recover quicker IMO.
I hope this month is better workout wise. My goal is to work out 5 days a week minimum, which would give me 25 days of working out. I also hope to see the scale move DOWN not up. My goal was to lose 10 pounds by my birthday which would have got me to 190. Now I will settle for there not being a 2 at the front of the number. The number has ranged from 203-206 this week. 🙁
I just want to be back where I was before the pill. At one point I even got down to 189. That seems like forever ago. I really hope it is lower by the time I see the dr on the 16th. I want to have SOME progress. I know it can be done. But even if I eat more or less or exactly right nothing seems to change.
So juice fast this weekend to boost me and then perhaps starting to count points to make sure I am eating the right amount of calories and I find points easier to count than calorie counts of every morsel. Especially since the things I eat the most frewuent I already know the point value.
The good thing about having NO money is that I can’t just run out and get crap to eat when I have a craving. It also means I can’t run out and get milk, fruit and veggies and yougurt when I need them. This is going to be a hard month since it is the first month on just unemployment.
