Healthy Living with
Happy Friday everyone! It's that time again, time to tell you about my weight loss journey and my healthy lifestyle. I got weighed yesterday and lost another .4 pounds. I know it's not much but considering how well I've been doing, it's OK. It brings my total up to 27 pounds which makes me happy because it's a nice solid number and I don't have to account for a few tenths of a pound here or there. I tend to have a few great weeks in a row and then have a week where I don' t lose much at all. This was that week but as long as the scale doesn't move in the opposite direction, I'm feeling good.
I do feel like I need to refocus myself during this upcoming week. I might be getting just a little bit lackadaisical. I haven't been measuring my margarine, I might have eaten a couple "Dove" chocolate Easter Eggs here and there (and by "might have eaten" I mean I did eat) and I know that I need to start tracking my food again... it's definitely the key for me. "If you bite it, you write it!" The other ladies in my group have all committed to getting back on track with our tracking...NO more "tracker slacker" here! There's no problem with having those chocolate Easter Eggs, it's just that I can't have too many and I need to write them down so that I don't forget how many I've eaten and end up eating too many calories for my day.
I'm still loving my working out. Loving. It. I am working on the "Couch to 5K" running program and all of a sudden it's become quite doable. I'm on week four day two. I've tried the program before but found that I couldn't do it very well after week two. I think I was trying to do too much and not following the program. Now that I'm truly following it, it's maybe even kind of fun.
I tried a new exercise class this week too...spinning! For those of you not familiar with spinning, it's a group stationary cycling class set to music. Here's a good little article if you want to check it out. It was fun and I will definitely be doing it again next week. I am constantly reminded of the class every time I sit down... did you know you have bones in your butt? I'll tell you more about it this weekend...
Have a great Friday everyone. Keep it healthy!
