I was away for the most part b/c of the technical problems but it seems that they have been resolved. I’m ready to give the site another try.
This is a great time for me to get focused again. For the most part the summer was great and I made good progress. This last week has been not so good but late August is always bad for me. It’s the beginning of school, change of schedule and there are lots of birthdays/events that deal with food. Today is the last (my hubby’s birthday) and I’m feeling ready to be mentally strong.
Our family has joined a gym and they have a boot camp class I really like. I do boot camp after school on Monday/Wednesday and I’ll lift weights at home on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. Friday is for running errands and on Sunday I’ll do whatever form of cardio I feel like at the time. I have picked out the 3 weightlifting workouts I’m going to do this week and scheduled them in my planner. I have also planned my food for tomorrow so things are ready to go.
I was doing weight watchers w/friends and although I’m going to continue the process I have quit the program. The monthly fee is the same as what we pay for the gym and I feel it’s much more important. Plus, the benefit for weight watchers (for me) was the support my friends and I gave each other, not the meeting itself. We actually rarely went to the meetings. Anyway, I’m going to send out texts to each of them on Sunday morning, my weigh in day, so I’ll still be accountable.
At this point I’m setting the goal of losing 5 pounds a month. This morning I was at 194 (yikes, had been 182.6 just 2 weeks ago) so this month I should be closer to 10 pounds b/c a lot of it has to do w/water weight due to carbs. I have had more pizza and birthday cake in the last few days than I have in the whole last year.
I also plan to post more but I don’t know how much time I’m going to be able to devote to reading/commenting on other blogs. I will do my best 🙂
