Okay friends, anyone remember what I was supposed to work on this week? Anyone? Anyone? Did you read last week’s post? Yes! Then you know I was supposed to add exercise to the program. Ummmm…. ya, about that. I do now own some exercise DVDs thanks to my fabulous step-mother-in-law. You know, the same one who got me the Food Loop. She’s pretty good at the practical gifts. Love that. Anyway, she sent me a set of her favorite exercise DVDs, POWER FIT.
I got them in the mail on Wednesday, and the Princess and I put the first one in. For many of you, this would have been too easy. For me, kicked my butt. Well, rather my hamstrings. They HURT the next day. Guess that means I did something right. Did I exercise again on Thursday? NOPE. Of course not. I had set the alarm to go off early enough to exercise and promptly hit snooze when it sounded. Not even hit snooze – set it for thirty minutes later. LOSER alert! Seriously people. DVDs delivered to my door, and I can’t get myself up to do them. Ridiculous I say! Can you tell I’m a little annoyed with myself. However, I’m still sitting here typing and not exercising. **Sigh**
Let’s see how I did on my goals as a whole:
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day – NO PROBLEM!
2. One sweet treat a day – NO PROBLEM! Well, was almost a problem on Thursday, but I curbed it. I am also making sure I put any sweets in my calorie count. And, anyone that knows me knows that this not being a problem is an act of God. I’m not kidding. He is so helping me out here.
3. Nothing Deep Fried – Only slipped once when I ordered a salad that had chicken tenders on it. I hadn’t thought it through.
4. Exercise 4 out of 7 days – Ummmm… see above.
Again, which goal needs work – that exercise goal. The bane of my existence. Uggh!
Weight Loss – 1.5 pounds. Not bad, but not as good as last week. Need to watch what kind of calories I’m putting in my mouth. And, I had several work restaurant lunches this week – HARD to watch calories then.
I overall am feeling better than I did before I cut out sweets, Diet Coke, and various other yucky stuff. I am listening more to my body and only eating when I’m actually hungry rather than when I feel like eating. This is huge for me. I’m a big emotional and boredom eater. Those are all bonuses for me!
UPDATE: I wrote the above Thursday night. This morning, I DID get up and exercise for 20 minutes. My legs and arms hurt, but I’m VERY proud of myself. Now, let’s see if I can keep it up!
Check in at Giving Up on Perfect to see how the rest of the Losing It! ladies are doing. I’m going to go cheer them on.
