It has been an EXTREMELY busy week! Usually when I don't have time to post something on my blog, I usually relax by reading & commenting on every one's blogs, but there hasn't been time to do that either! I'm usually so tired, all I want to do is be a vegetable in front of the TV or go right to bed, which is what I do most of the time. This is my son's last week of school and there are lot of stuff that needs to be done before school is over. And the stuff that needs to be done continues even after school is over! I won't bore you with the details, but I'll be spending a lot of time on the road being a chauffeur for my son's various activities and most of them are 40 Min's away! I figure things should start winding down towards the end of July and by that time I'll need a vacation!
Despite the busyness of my life, I have miraculously been able to stick with Weight Watchers. I am on my third week of Weight Watchers. The first week was extremely hard. It was a pain having to record what I ate, there were some days that I forgot. The second week, I got better. I was able to stock up the kitchen with low cal snacks and cook meals that were lean and low cal as well. It became easier to record my food intake. And I lost two pounds this week, that's a total of 4lbs in 3 weeks! Slow and steady! I have noticed my butt getting smaller, which is a miraculous feat! Don't worry, I won't show pictures!
Last week, I exercised consistently and did better at weight training. My pace increased at the treadmill, I increased the incline and I was able to work out longer. It feels good to see my endurance level increase. And I'm at a point, where I feel the need to work out. When I can't go to the gym, I do a work out at home, even if it's only 30 minutes. I am constantly challenging myself and I owe that motivation from reading many of your blogs. I am always amazed that despite personal or physical challenges, every one is able to still find the time to work out.
My second motivation to sticking with my food plan and working out is a silly one. I have a friend who started Jenny Craig about a month ago and she's losing weigh... a lot of it! And she doesn't work out! I think of the weight that she's losing and that keeps me from eating late at night. As I said before, it's a silly reason, but it seems to be working for me. I've always been a very competitive person!
