I just need to keep telling myself that, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!” I’m discouraged. I think we’ve all been in that boat where the scale JUST.WON’T.MOVE. I’m here. I hate it, but I’m here.
Here are my calories from yesterday:
On the higher end. But still within what I allow myself per day.
I also went to the gym last night for a sweaty 30 minutes of cardio. Normally, I try to aim for closer to 40 minutes, but I was sweating my ass off and pushing myself at a pretty high intensity, so I figured just 30 minutes for the day wouldn’t kill me. Plus, I had spent probably a good 30 minutes walking around downtown yesterday, so all in all, I suppose I got about 60 minutes of cardio in yesterday – on top of my hourly exercises that my friend and I have been doing (which I love!). I’ve been at the gym 3 times with week and will also be there on Saturday for a personal training day.
I kind of like the new routine I’ve picked up at the gym. Workout for 2 days, rest for a day, work out for 2 days, rest for a day. Then I still feel like I’m getting in some time at the gym, but I’m not killing myself. I’ll stick with it for a while and see how it goes.
I honestly don’t have much to say today. I feel like a grump. I spent about 35-45 minutes at the DMV today getting a new driver’s license since I lost mine and it is NOWHERE to be found. It took forever for them to see me and only about 2 minutes for them to actually help me. It’s ridiculous. Tax dollars, hard at work at the DMV. Urg.
Besides the DMV fiasco, I just feel in the rut with my weight loss. I do feel good. I feel better than I felt last year. But I want the scale to start moving again, even it’s it’s just inching it’s way to a healthier weight. I’m just frustrated. But… you know me – I’m not giving up. I’ll say that over and over and over again, I’m not ever going to give up.
I have yet another motivator in my life to lose some LBS. Adam told me once I get to “where I wanted to be” that he would buy me a new wardrobe. I love clothes… so this should kick my ass right in gear. He has told me this before… so I just need to DO IT!
PS – I say “where I want to be” as far as weight loss because I really don’t have a “goal weight” – I want to be a healthy weight, of course… but I’m not sure, yet, what the number is going to be.
Well, instead of spewing crabby-ass all over my blog anymore, I’m logging off. Enjoy your nice long weekend! I will be. I’m out of work until Wednesday! Thank you, Lord! 🙂
I confirmed a bazillion times she was accepting new patients, even telling him that I had called that specific clinic and they told me all of their therapists weren’t accepting new patients. The doctor smiled and said he was sure of it, she was taking new patients. With all my might, I drove past every freakin’ McDonalds on my way into work. With all of my will power, I fought off every urge to stop and just binge.
I’ll be back on Monday!
