I am setting goals for myself this week. My goal this week is to go to Spinning on Thursday and Tuesday, do the elliptical on Monday and Saturday and do the treadmill on Wednesday and Friday. I will take Sunday off however if it is nice out I might go hiking or bike riding depending on the weather. My second goal is to not pig out on Saturday night. We are going out to dinner for a friends birthday then back to his house for cake. The restaurant is a Italian restaurant, what would you choose from this menu?
I had another gain today on the scale. I expected it seeing I have been eating like crap and not exercising. I did get control yesterday and had a successful day staying within my points. I also went to the gym and did the elliptical for 53 minutes. I usually do 50 minutes but I am trying to up it to an hour little by little. I am going to spinning class tonight which will be fun. I almost had a moment of weakness today. They brought in cookies and for a minute I thought yummy I will have one I can't stick to my points anyway but then reality hit in & I said NO I will stick to my points and I will do this. I have to keep control and continue on this journey.
I am happy we have a long weekend, I am happy my good friends are getting married on Sunday, I am happy I have the love and support of my family and friends, I am happy I can walk without getting tired and out of breath, I am happy I am no longer a slave to the TV, Most of all I am happy I took better control of my life and lost 56 pounds. I am looking forward to loosing another 30-40 pounds and all the happiness that lies ahead.
Last night I made it through spinning, it was much worse in my mind that actually doing it. I am going to commit to going to spinning class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Spinning was such a good workout and fun. I burnt 700 calories in an hour woo hoo.
Today will be 5 days in a row that I have exercised! I am committing to exercising 5-6 days a week. Not that I will stop at 5 days but I will do at least 5. Tonight I am going to spinning class. I am a bit nervous as I have not been in a few months but I think I will be ok. The diet is going good I managed to stick to my points yesterday however I was so hungry all day long. My stomach needs to get use to less food and more fiber.
On another note I am reading this great book by a follow blogger The Amazing Adventures of Diet Girl. I love the book I can relate to so much she has gone through. I highly recommend it.
Boy how the time is flying by. Sorry I have been MIA for so long. I have been extremely busy at work and at life in general. I am committing to blogging again. We had a wonderful time in the Dominic Republic, we went snorkeling with sting rays & sharks, horseback riding on the beach, zip lining and kayaking. It was such a wonderful vacation. Now I am back to the real world.
I wish I could grab a hold of a healthy lifestyle and stick to it. I have been yo yoing with the same weight for 2 years now. How am I ever going to reach my goal if I can not stay on track? I will do great for a week then fall off and do horrible for a week. I know 99% is mental and I need to get my head into it.
I have been on Weight Watchers for almost 3 years. I started off great I lost 60 pounds. Now I find myself slacking & losing then gaining the same 20 pounds over & over. I have had a weight problem all my life. I am going to lose the last 50 pounds this time. I will not stop till it is dropped.
