Day 162 Weigh In
I am getting annoyed with the scale. I have been working out, eating better and giving up foods that aren't good for me. The study about diet soda causing you to not lose weight or gain weight I am thinking is a joke. I gave up soda for other reasons though. Like Aspartame. I guess I thought maybe the weight might come off a little more. Nope. I will take what I can get though.
This week I am down .9 of a pound. If there is anything I am learning it is that I never have big losses but I have been doing this for 162 and I haven't thrown the towel in. Hopefully this will help when it comes to maintenance.
I have sat down and worked on a new exercise program to follow when I start working. I will be working 9:30-1:30 but they close the roads down on post till 7:30 for PT for the soldiers so going to the gym in the morning is not going to happen. I have to make sure that I eat breakfast. I can't go back to my old habits. Instead I will leave with my daughter at 7 and go on a walk/run. This will help me get into running. I will do Zumba Monday nights and Friday nights when I can. I am thinking about taking a Zumba class on Saturday when I am not going anywhere. It is also a different teacher so we will see. After work I will go to the gym and do weights 3 times a week. I hope maybe switching things up a little might show favors on the scale or even inches. I will take inches as well!!
I really would like to be down 10-15 pounds by the end of the school year which is the middle of June. I am motivated more though now that I see the changes. I have to finish what I started. I can't give in even though the scale hates me.
