Wow, thanks to all of you for your feedback last week and all the wonderfully supportive ideas! Here's how the week shook out for me.
I managed to get in 1 workout. It's a start! I met with a personal trainer for an hour and while she was great, I need a Jillian Michaels type to really get my rear in gear. My PT put a program together for me and I'm officially heading in the right direction.
I started a food diary and it's forcing me to examine how much food I'm really taking in. And really, it's not so much the volume as the types of food. I love my desserts!
Now, for the weight loss. Yeah, not only did I not lose a pound, I actually gained a whole pound. (Sigh) This week is going to be a better week. I just know it!
And now for the thing that I promised myself I would do. I'm actually going to disclose here in black & white, the awful number that I saw on the scale this morning. Because every journey begins with the first step and I really think that saying this out loud is the serious first step that I need to get my ass in high gear. The number this morning was 219.2. Phew. That was a lot harder than ripping off a band-aid. My heart is still pounding. Let's move on before I have a full blown panic attack.
Goals for this week:
1) Get in at least 3 workouts
2) Write everyday in my food journal
3) Join Sparkpeople
4) Lose 2 lbs
So, how are things going for you guys? What goals do you have this week/month?
