I've been doing this now for 15 weeks, that's a long time. I've only lost a little over 10 lbs, but that's okay, I'm going for long-lasting results here, not just temporary solutions.
This week I really tried to focus on working out every day, and the only time I could do that was during my daughter's nap time, working out at night is real hard for me. I didn't do my workout yet today so I'm going to have to do it when my girl goes to bed but that's my own fault. I think another thing that has motivated me to get to the gym more is my eating habits. This week has had ups and downs in the food department. It's either I do great with eating healthy and bad with exercise or the other way around, why can't I find that healthy balance?
Fitness: I want to go to the gym at least 3x a week and then work out at home 2-3x, because my husband's work schedule. Made it to the gym 3x but only did Jillian Michael's DVD once. I think I need to do more circuit training, I'm still pretty flabby.
Food: Food choices and portions are good in the morning and afternoon, fruit or bran cereal for breakfast, and a salad or veggie sandwich on whole wheat bread for lunch. But night rolls around and I'm starving, so I overeat, it's a vicious cycle.
Failures and Slip-ups: Need to work on portion control and healthy choices for dinner, did okay with exercise this week, but I think I need to do more circuit training and ab work.
Weekly Challenge Wisdom and Advice: We are not competing against anyone in our weight loss/healthy journey. We all lose weight in our own time, we just have to remember not to give up. I wanted to be at my goal weight by the end of this month, not gonna happen. So instead of looking at myself as a failure, I just readjusted my goal line, success will come eventually as long as we keep trying.
