Long Weekend

Friday, February 18, 2011

So here goes nothing...this weekend is going to be a great one but a challenge. I have Monday off and its my husband's birthday. We're going to dinner tonight with my family, tomorrow night with friends, Sunday with his family and Monday just us. I really hope to make healthy choices and not go crazy. I will definitely not be drinking every night. Maybe a glass of wine on only 2 of the nights out. I'm anxious about it.

I have been having a really tough time with losing weight so far that I don't want to put myself in a bigger hole. I already made plans to go to the gym tomorrow morning for a kick boxing class. At least that will get my exercise in. I've been going to the gym about 5 times a week for the past 3 weeks and the scale has not budged. It's been a very slow start to the say the least.

I don't want this to sound depressing or anything because I've been really working hard at my weight loss...and I feel good about it but I just wished things progressed a little quicker then what they are. I had a goal to lose 5 pounds a month and January was only 2 and as of now February is 0. So needless to say this weekend is a true test. Wish me luck!

    my trick for tempting restaurants: drink a tonne of water before you go and then order carbonated water....it'll fill you up so much that you can't eat anything much!

    It is really frustrating when you work so hard and the weight doesn't come off. Could you be losing inches because of building muscle? Muscle weighs more than fat but takes up less space? Sould you be eating too little? If you aren't eating enough your body will go into starvation mode and start "saveing" fat. It is alsmot like it decides to put it into the "bank" and changes your metabolism. Good luck! 50 lbs in such a short time is a big expectation! emoticon

    The weekend was tough. I did not eat as well as I could have but I did work out so that was a plus. I'm being extremely strict with myself this week so hopefully that will get me back on track!

    Hope the weekend was good! I just spend the weekend with family and came back 1.5 pounds heavier- not happy about that, but I'm picking myself up and going for some heavy cardio the next few days- you can do it!!
