Okay, I really do want to dance. I could really use a night out, dancing!! But I kind of want to waitt until I'm down at least 20 pounds. I mean I'll dance no matter what I look like, just cause, well I'm an awesome dancer, but I'd feel better with another 10 - 15 pounds off of me! And, well, I'd probably be an even awesomer dancer!
Today, the day before week 5 weigh in. I did P90X Cardio work out, totally kicks my booty! Love it!! And the 1000 sit ups today are my goal (at 2:30, I'm only at 200, I better get on it). After I did that I shoveled out the mail box for our mail man! I'm hoping today after 2 days of no mail we'll finally get some. Mail is pretty much the highlight of my day! Luckily the sun has been out, even though it's cold and theirs evil, evil snow on the ground, it feels so good to have the sun out! I crave the sun, maybe I should take a vitamin D supplement and it'll help. I am going to get some B Vitamin supplements tomorrow, as recommended by my doctor. I'm really sore from shoveling yesterday, I love the feeling of sore! I actually crave that feeling every day, makes me feel like I really did something. And even after all that I helped my husband unload two arcades off the back of our trailer and swept out the garage. The arcades were 200 and 500 pounds, but just as I'm an awesome dancer, I'm pretty much as strong as She-ra. Wanna arm wrestle? I'm planning on only getting stronger!
The urge for Brownies has not subsided yet, but I will definitely not eat any today, as I weigh in tomorrow. The statement you will see every Thursday: I'm not feeling very confident about this weigh in, I haven't noticed anything looking different on my body and my clothes don't fit any differently, but I'm gonna keep pushing. Even if I don't lose any weight, it doesn't matter, I'm going to keep going, it's all I can do to really get to me!!
My eating was pretty good today. But I realized that I haven't really been keeping my food journal as I was when I first started. I didn't want to keep one to begin with, but I started a couple days into this journey and it really helped the first few weeks. I noticed last week and this week I was really lazy about it. I wasn't necessarily bingeing but I'd sneak a animal cracker when I was feeding baby girl, or just grab one of little man's chips when he was eating lunch. Which is what I need to get grips on this coming week. It seems like every week there is something I realize I'm doing and that I have to work on the following week.
I have not been on the treadmill since that beautiful jog outside a week or so ago. I've been doing stuff on TV or DVD's I have. It was so refreshing and so invigorating that I think I'd get so frustrated on the treadmill. Before I weigh in tomorrow I'll work out, so I'm deciding if I'm actually going to get on the treadmill or if I'll do some sort of cardio work out. I know the thought of the treadmill makes me want to punch it, so we'll see. In my prayers tonight I will again thank God that I have continued motivation, that I love to exercise, I love healthy food, I lose weight easily and my metabolism is super charged (positive thinking...oh the power of words...if some of us really knew!!).
I'm still going to need a few weeks of big numbers. I keep thinking if I can just push through the winter, I'll be able to really push in the Spring/Summer. I also got a free week at Curves that I'm going to try to use in the next few weeks! I don't think it'll be for me all the time because I'd get bored with it, but it'll definitely be great for a push and a change of pace.
Got an early alarm going off tomorrow. It's monthly grocery shopping so it's a long day and I gotta get the work out and weigh in done before we leave.
