Days 328-330 on the Journey!!
Monday, June 02, 2014
The past two days have been good. On Saturday morning I was able to do my Focus T25 Upper Focus video and Focus T25 Core Cardio video and I nearly nailed them both!! I should be able to nail them completely the next time that I do them.
I also did my daily 25 push-ups (despite already doing about 20 of them in the Upper Focus video
) and I also did 1 day's worth of the May challenge workout which for that day was 62 situps, 60 crunches, 60 leg raises on each side and a 56 second plank. Unfortnately the month ended and I still had two days undone for the challenge. I still plan to do them though because I believe in finishing what I start so I'll hopefully do one day's set today and the last day's set tomorrow and then I will say good riddance to sit-ups, crunches, leg raises and the plank which I don't want to see again for a while!!!
Saturday also marked a weigh-in and again the scale has declared that I have NOT lost a POUND!! Now a testament to my growth is that this did not discourage me in the least!! I didn't feel like a failure, my heart didn't sink and my day didn't get ruined. Now probably if I wasn't seeing the results that I know that I'm seeing I would have been discouraged but instead I just stepped off the scale, took my other measurements and recorded them on my calendar. I honestly don't know why the scale isn't budging but I know that I'm seeing my progress in more toned thighs, arms, etc. and overall I do look slimmer. I'm continuing to press on because I know that the scale will have to budge eventually and in the meantime I am comforted by the fact that
Now Sunday as usual was my rest day from exercise though I really should have done a Stretch video but I was just too tired. Today also I haven't exercised as yet. I went to bed after 1 a.m. this morning and I needed to get up at 5:30 a.m. for work so there was no way that I could have exercised this morning. I wholly intend to do my video this evening when I get home though NO MATTER what!! I'll let you guys know tomorrow how it went.
On the food front I've been doing
Of course since losing weight I've had to reduce my calories and portion sizes and I've battled with a little hunger here and there but recently I've been finding that those battles are much less. It seems that my body is finally adapting to the smaller meals and being satisfied longer with them.
I truly feel like I'm making progress and becoming the person that I want to be and that's not just a slimmer person but it's also a person who exercises as she should for her health (not to lose weight) and a person who follows a healthy diet and is able to control food and not let food control her. It's so true that
Thanks for your time.
