I'm a litte frustrated this week. I did attempt to work out 6 times. But on Wednesday I was only on the treadmill for 10 minutes when Monkey woke up crying her eyes out. She had been puking for the past 2 days, so I felt I should probably get off the treadmill and comfort her! This turned into 2 hours of her throwing a fit about every suggestion I made to try and calm her down. On Thursday I barely got my workout clothes on when she woke up crying. She's finally feeling better, but I only managed to exercise 4 and 1/6 times last week. Now you'd think that would still be pretty effective...but NOPE! I'm barely down 1 measley lb. What's up with that?
The problem with getting on the treadmill late at night is that if something interferes with your workout, you don't really have time to "get back to it later"! I'm not giving up though. I still exercised Saturday, Monday and yesterday. Hopefully this week I'll have a little more success.
I didn't get the strength training incorporated into my exercising like I had hoped. I have a yoga pilates DVD that I wanted to try out...but I didn't get to it. I think maybe I'll just do some hand weights while I walk, then some ab exercises in the mornings.
Also, the first time I increased my walking pace to 3.4 mph, my legs felt like they were going to fall off after about 5 minutes! When did I turn into such a wimp?
This week's goals: increase walking pace to 3.3 mph. Eat more fruit. Get more sleep. I have very poor sleeping habits, and I know that this can effect weight loss or gain, so this week it's my goal to be in bed by 11 every night.
This week's question:
We're all here at EM:ME because we're unhappy with our bodies, or our health; there are things that we are trying to change.But today you must share one thing with everybody that you absolutely love about yourself"
I would have to say that I'm glad I have a quick mind. I learn quickly, and I love knowledge. I love learning (now that I don't have time to learn...why didn't I realize this when I was in school? Oh that's right, because back then I loved kissing more than I loved learning!)
I have developed a great passion for learning about things I never really cared about before, like history, and politics. I still love math too! My dream getaway would be a week alone in a nice hotel with a room full of books!
Here's to a more successful week! What is something you love about yourself?
