My poor neglected blog. I always set out with the best of intentions to maintain this blog and post regularly. I used to love to write and I want to write so badly, but I always think that whatever I write will be stupid and no one reads this blog anyway so why waste the time, right? Maybe I just need to treat writing like I do exercise, a non-negotiable daily activity. So I guess my goal for the month of April will be to write, whether anyone visits my blog or not. :)
My last post was from January, I had decided to take up Weight Watchers. I did well the first 4 weeks, losing 1 pound a week. After that I think I got tired of it and kind of let myself go for a minute. I have gained and lost and maintained all in the span of the 3 months that i've been on WW. My subscription runs out on Friday and I was seriously thinking about cancelling it and just trying to do it on my own. However, I like being accountable to something, even if it's just their website. On the same note, I have slacked off for the past couple weeks (we've had alot going on) and have been able to mostly maintain the weight I was at before the slacking started. So I think I could do it myself and I would still have access to the free features on the site, although i'm not sure what those are. I have lost a total of 5 pounds since starting WW. I know that doesn't seem like much but my starting weight was 145 and I only wanted to lose 10-15 pounds. I'm either 1/3 or 1/2 way there depending on which goal I decide to stick with.
I exercise alot. Well, maybe not alot for some people who like live in the gym, but for me it's a nice steady routine. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I do a Real Age Fat Burn workout and do a 30 minute Jillian Michaels walking workout using iFit on my treadmill. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays I do Couch to 5K. I'm almost finished with Week 8 of C25K. One more week to go and I will have finished the program! Once i'm finished, I will continue to run 30 minutes on those same days and try to up my time each week by a minute or two. Sunday is my rest day. Or if I just have too much going on one day during the week I may not have time to fit my workout in so i'll take that day off and workout on Sunday to make up for it. I always try to get my 6 days in no matter what.
My eating has been horrible lately and i'm trying to get back into the good stuff. I figure I have 2 months until I could possibly be in a swimming suit so I want to make the time work for me the best I can.
Wow this has turned out to be a long post, guess I had more to say than I thought. Off to write some more, but in a different post.
