Monday Weigh In Success!
Monday, February 03, 2014
I knew it was a good week....and I was very conscious of what I was doing that made me feel so good all week. It was like I was watching the calories burn off (they move so slow, I could see them leaving one by one! :P)
I am putting in more time on the treadmill, burning more calories, and just staying away from eating the things I know are a waste of precious calories. I'm no where near where I need to be, but I am happy with my progress so far. A pound a week for the next 25 weeks is fine with me.
I wish I could say some of my stress, anxiety and frustration were burned away with the calories this week, but it's not the case. I'm working to get my head in order, defeat (or at least reduce) the depression and certainly the way I feel today should continue to motivate me. Plus, I have already found at least 2 spark peeps I wouldn't mind emulating - they are going to remind me how good it feels to be fit and stay on track!
I also started thinking about which gym to join...I don't want to drive too far and would like to have a real life buddy to attend with, but getting my friends going at 5:30am is improbable. There's also a local kickboxing class (if I take that, I may choose to take out some of my frustration by kicking someone's a*s, so I'm not so sure that kind of training will do me any good, I might actually go and hurt someone!). I see a lot of posts about Planet Fitness but I don't think there is one close enough to me. In any case, I can't join until end of March when I return from a long business trip so I have time to think about it.
It's a small step in the right direction, but the point of all this is that it is, in fact, the RIGHT direction.
Thanks for tuning in spark peeps! Keep sparkin'! And thanks to all of you who blog all the time and provide the rest of us with tons of reading material!
