When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was slightly disappointed with this:
Last week’s weight: 173 lbs
This week’s weight: 173 lbs
I mean C’MON! I was careful with what I ate (but I did not journal religiously), I exercised and even did a double workout yesterday (one hour pilates/core combo at the gym and 30 Day Shred at home, level 3). Nighttime snacking was cut way down and completely OUT for the last 3 nights. I thought for sure I had a weight loss in the bag. But alas, it is not to be this week at least.
But that’s OK, I have decided. My clothes are feeling better, my legs are strong, and I know I am doing the right things. It does appear that I will have to journal Every. Single. Thing. I. Eat in order to really understand what is going on food-wise. I have the exercise portion under control, meaning I am now exercising on a regular basis and will continue to do so with the upcoming 5K challenge. Now I just have to get a true handle on my eating. I think I am eating right and the right portions but apparently my perception is a little skewed and I must be eating more than I should.
So yeah this week, the name of the game is to journal, journal, journal. Drink drink drink (water, that is). Exercise, exercise, exercise.
