Update from Last Week: I was mentioned on Natalie's blog! Whoo hoo! That's a first for me by someone I don't know in person. So exciting and motivating! :) Anyhoo... back to the business at hand. This week was kind of a loss. Working over time and eating out too many times, not to excuse myself or anything... I didn't gain any weight but I was not as successful with losing as I have been and know I can be. My plan is to work on working out.
Weigh In: Saturday, May 26, at meeting, 179.4 lbs, down 0.4. I have to admit, I didn't try as hard as I should have.
My Weekly Motivation: Monday is a holiday, find a way to indulge intelligently :-)
Exercise: What's that? We took a couple of walks this week, carrying the monster in the snugli, so yay for weight-bearing walking!! Also vacuumed/cleaned the main floor like a madwoman.
Share the Wisdom of Others: Change the way you think about exercise. Find something you enjoy and do it. Any activity is good. Break it down into more manageable chunks, 10 minutes here, 10 minutes there and before you know it, you have 30 minutes done, bam. As my doc says, you can do anything for 10 minutes. If you like to read or listen to music, do it while moving. Make a deal with yourself, if you want to watch a certain show tonight, you can watch it but only if you're on the treadmill while doing so. Trick yourself!!
First Degree Goal: Pre-pregnancy weight of 172 pounds. Getting closer!!!
Second Degree Goal: Find an activity that I enjoy in order to add in some exercise. Still working on this...
Ultimate Goal: 140 pounds/feel good in my skin/fit in single digit size clothing.
