Frustrating Friday

Ugh. and Smile. Both at once really. haha

SO, despite my enthusiastic post last night about not being bothered if I wasn't in the 160's this week, I was pretty bothered this morning when I was 170.8. I was 169 or a bit less ALL week - and it comes to weigh in day and im not. The thing is though, if I wouldn't have cheated and weighed in early I wouldn't have been disappointed because at least I had gone down over a lb. Ugh - NEXT WEEK! ( I know that is what I said last week) but this is NOT EASY! And I am going to have to keep working hard. The most important thing is NOT to get discouraged!

I was talking to JT about what I can do to take my workouts to the next level and he suggested I do P90x. It seems that my main problem is that I go into my workouts without a solid plan - not being organized makes the workout less effective for me, so if I do a workout dvd that is intense (even if I can't do it intensely for a while! lol) I will be organized and get a solid workout in every time. I will do swimming and biking on the side for extra and fun! :)

Another problem is that I haven't been logging my food because I haven't had my boddybug - which is BS because I can still log my food I've just been silly. So I started doing that today. I isn't that I am eating food that is bad, but if I don't pay close attention I might be eating too much food that is good for me! lol.

SOOOOO I have lost 7 lbs. so far. That is pretty good. that is 2.3 lbs. a week on average. If I can do a bit more next week I will make my monthly goal!!

Thanks as usual for all of the support! <3


  1. Just from my experience, I would say to make sure you get maximun results on weigh-in day (LoL) try to limit your salt intake as much as possible the day before. We all know how a little extra salt can make your body cling to those pounds like no tomorrow! I'm glad you're going to be logging again, because it can really help. Even if you're eating all good foods, the calories and sodium can add up quick!

    But then on the other hand, I want to make sure you have realistic goals for yourself. No matter what you think about yourself, Heather, you're pretty skinny, so really a pound per week would be a good goal for you, and you should be really happy with that achievement! Remember, it's not a sprint, it's a marathon! And no matter what the scale says, you're living a happy and healthy lifestyle, so don't worry too much about the numbers <3

  2. I know you can do it!! And don't forget that if you're gaining muscle and loosing fat at the same time it wont show up on the scale. Congrats on loosing 7 lbs! Just remember you're doing really well!!!
