Sometimes I would get so discouraged when I was dieting and exercising that I wasn’t seeing results but it’s not going to happen overnight. Gaining it all took a lifetime, I just hope it doesn’t take that long to lose it!!!
So my fears were confirmed. I lost 1.2 pound this week. Now it could just be my ‘time’ if you know what I mean or it could just be because I didn’t do as much this week.
I’m not discouraged. As I said, I didn’t work out as much this past week. How can I sit here and be pissed that I didn’t have the same weight loss as last week when I sweat balls last week and didn’t work out as much this week? Also I had a bit of a bad meal yesterday. So ah well. You know what? I didn’t GAIN! So let us yay for that!
Someone just told me that warm water helps with bloating - honey with a slice of lime/lemon, green/white tea, tea with honey.. all with warm water
This morning I started the day with my bootcamp. It kicked my ASS. It was so hard. And surprisingly? The majority of the people were thin and fit. I was definitely one of the biggest people there. I just thought it would be more people that were a bit out of shape.
It was an hour long class that is trying to kill my outer fat girl. I’m appreciative.
The hardest part was when I was supposed to do 10 jumping jacks then 10 push ups, 9 jumping jacks then 9 push ups, 8 jumping jacks then 8 push ups, etc. We were allowed 3 seconds to get down/up to do the next exercise. Let me just say, on the second round of that (this time with cross ski exercises and crunches) I got up and down a few times then just laid on my mat for a second and just did crunches for the duration.
On my way home I dropped off my friend then went to the track by my house and did my walk/jog/run thing. I was still riding on that high you get after working out and thought… why not? Lets do this! Of course by my third lap (4 is a mile) I wanted to die. But I finished up the mile regardless.
So, moral of the story? Don’t be angry if you don’t lose weight when you know you didn’t work for it OR when it could be caused by something you can not control.
I am EXHAUSTED. I’m about to head to Sam’s for my weekly fruit and veggie shopping.
Stay motivated! We can do it!
