Oh dear...oh dear...well not a good way to start a post!! :) I have "lost" .5lbs this week...or maybe lol :) Well today I have probably gained it plus back. Being a teacher and the last days of school treats are in no short supply!!! So needless to say, my "starting over" from this week will need to happen again!!!!!
So I am going to try it all again, re-determine my willingness and hope that my hubby doesn't parade Dairy Queen in my face again!!!!
So for this week I will continue on the 5.2lbs weight loss, continue with the C25K program (btw on W2D2 tomorrow) and swim at least 3 times or bike ride if swimming not an option.
Well this email I received could NOT have come at a better time. I just weighed myself and I am up...gulp...I haven't made the best choices this week and haven't been as committed to the working out...so why am I surprised? But this is just the reminder I needed. It is from Jillian Michaels (of the Biggest Loser and Losing It).
Overcoming a Setback It happens — you miss a few workouts and you feel like you've fallen off the weight-loss wagon. It's tempting to mentally slap yourself around, right? (Or head for the fridge.) Before you start, I want to remind you of something: Being hard on yourself is the Old You.
The New You knows how to deal with setbacks and get back on the wagon. And after all, there are no mistakes, just learning experiences. Weight loss is a process — it takes time. You will encounter small failures — everyone does — but every pound you gain can be lost.
And if you miss a workout, it's not the end of the world! Get to the gym the next day and continue to focus on your short-term goals. Just because you made bad choices today doesn't mean you can't start over tomorrow. New day? New beginning. And don't you forget it!
I have heard many times from different weight loss people that you can always hit the restart button. So today...Monday June 21, 2010 I am hitting my reset button. I will (try) to post every week with my pounds lost and what I did that week to make myself proud.
So this week my first goal is to lose the 5.6 pounds it will take for me to get to the next lowest 10s category. I am not giving myself a week to do this, I am going to be flexible. I will try my darndest, but if i miss I will reevaluate my time line!
So this week I plan to start my 5.6 lbs weight loss, I plan to do three 30 minute walk/runs, and 3 times on the Wii fit OR Workout video. I will let you know how I did on my Week Two post :)
