Okay, sometimes the exercise is so hard, there is no actual physical advantage to even half-heartedly attempting it. *sighs and goes back to Level 2 of Jillian Michael's 30-day shred*
It's so muggy out that my 3 mile walk was a little damp and uncomfortable. As was the 2 near misses by the rather crazy Utah drivers around here. I could be out in the middle of the field and a car would probably STILL buzz me. Graaagh! Still, done.
Sadly, at WW, I gained 0.4 pounds. :( So much for my 5 pound weight loss. But I think I just did too much exercising and...well, eating too.
At least I have shoulder muscles! Woo!
After gaining a little last week, I lost 1.4 pounds this week, putting me at 157.8 pounds, which is FIVE POUNDS from when I started at 162.8 pounds. Yes!
What worked? Exercise worked. You don't need a gym pass, you don't need anything but a pair of good shoes and you can walk in street clothes to wherever. But I like workout videos. And my video has helped a LOT. I wake up every morning with energy and anticipation for working out yet again. I love my muscles. I love getting into fresh-washed jeans without having to really struggle.
Y'know, the hardest part is journaling though. But it has also really helped so much to be faithful to the journal. I can see where I'm at, I can see where I'm going. I can control myself and my diet better this way.
I AM in control. I AM responsible. I CAN be my goal weight!
