I woke up feeling so bloated and not looking forward to stepping on the scale.
My tummy has been giving me some major problems the last few days and I wasn't sure if it would turn out to be a good or bad thing on the scale.
Here goes this week's weigh in:
I'm under that blasted 150 I've been working to get under forever!! Why I'm I not thrilled? I was really hoping again this week to lose to 2 lbs, and I lost 1.4 lbs. I know .6 lb doesn't seem like a big difference, but it is when I come short of my goal each week which sets me back further in terms of my long term goal...see the name of this blog. I know have 10 weeks left with 24 lbs to lose. At this rate I will come up 10 lbs short of my goal, which still will be all *adult* time goal, but I'm really aiming for that 125. I'll go into more reasons why I want to reach that by September later...
I know there are things I could be doing that will help me speed up my weight loss. I've gotten in the habit of doing daily 200-300 calorie workouts when I was doing daily 500+ calorie workouts during Season 4 at Win, Lose or Blog. Now that I have my heart rate monitor, I can compare my work outs and know what's the best burn for me. So...it's time to up the burn. With that I'm going to be careful I'm not eating too few calories. I want to lose weight, but I want to lose weight from burning fat, not muscle. I've found the best time for me to workout is a little after lunch when my youngest goes down for a nap. I can put in a video for an hour, be fueled from lunch, and not too long after my workout, I can refuel with my afternoon snack.
And another big thing..I gave up my diet coke with lime again. The more soda I drink, the less water I am drinking. So I'm on day 4 without it. I know I need to drink more water, this has always been a hard one for me since I only like really cold water.
Saturday we leave for an 8 day vacation. There will be lots of drive time...about 24 hours total. Drive time = snack temptations. I'll be camping in the woods next Wednesday so I won't be weighing in. This makes me nervous for the following week's weigh in.
