Wednesday is Blogging Day for me. Just an update and some random musings.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

I seem to blog most often on Wednesdays, that's when the thought occurs to me that i have something to share, i guess.

So far this week, I've exercised M, T, W. On 2 of those days, I took a spinning class at 5:45 am. It's getting easier for me to wake up but I'm not doing too well on getting to bed early enough. I'm still going to bed at 11:00 or so. Must make it to bed earlier at least 10 and hopefully fall asleep by 10:30 or so. I need 6 hours minimum to function at my best.

I've been eating pretty well getting lots of fruits and vegetables in. Some slips (natural cut fries from Wednesday - 300 calories - yikes!) a big kaiser roll the other day that came with a turkey burger. Oh well....Will try to avoid those for the rest of the week.

I'm still not doing well in incorporating strength training exercises into my workout, it always seems to be a hassle. I must try harder because all the information I'm getting says I'm not losing pounds because I don't have enough muscle.

I'm taking my measurements this weekend, in search of some more non-scale victories but i would love to have a few "scale" victories", it would just help me know that I'm doing somethig right. I've been getting on the scale less and less and want to throw it out so much but I'm HOOKED on the damn thing, don't know if i can toss it yet. But I don't think it's very accurate so i'm going to my Dr's office for weigh in, see how it goes.

I'm seeing some improvements with the body but don't want to get too excited since it might not translate into POUNDS lost, at least not yet.

I'm feeling good and i like that part. I'm working harder than ever and am hoping for some positive results but i'm not giving up.

I made a bet with a friend. 40 lbs lighter by June 15th 2013. If i make it, i get a 3day cruise, if i lose, i pay him $100.00. You know i don't want to pay him that money, so I've got to to do this. I think i can, i know i can. Hopefully all the elements and molecules in my body will cooperate with my head and get the job done.

Just sharing...

    Why do you think you have an issue with strength training.... I wish that was ALL i needed to focus on!!

    Your bet is awesome though. A "carrot" always makes it easier.... And I'm one to not like defeat.... Go Do IT!!!

    You can do it! What a great insentive, a cruise!!! I find Strength Training easier to do if you have some weights at home.... I have two 5 pound weights and two 10 pound weights and I pick them up while watching tv! It burns a few calories and you get the Strength Training in!! Good luck Karen!
