Today I weighed in at:250, that one pound decided to stay off! Even after my crash on Wednesday! Now to lose some more...
And it's back to the grindstone. I don't know how much exercise I should be getting as someone very out of shape and overweight, but I know I'm not going to stop. If I need a day off in the middle of the week, so be it. I've seriously been thinking about it, and I don't think I overdid it by very much, if I had, I would have lost weight like crazy, right? I'm going to pick back up today, but maybe work out a little later in the day, like after pool time. Around 8 or 9 would be fine too. I just can't keep getting up super early to work out. As my therapist said, you can't be a night owl and a morning person.
I think the key is going to be to keep going and not give up. I almost did. I was so tired on Wednesday and then on Thursday. I can't let myself crash like that again. So I need to figure out how much cardio I really should be getting, and go for that. Even if it is less than what I was getting.
My food the last two days has been bad. Not horrible, but bad. Wednesday I let myself get way too hungry. And yesterday I was at a point where I just didn't care. I can't let myself get there again. I'm going to eat a lot of veggies today and, not try to compensate, but try to get myself back on track.
I have to remember my goal, my focus. I can't lose sight of that, what is ultimately my reward as well, losing this weight. I don't want to give up! Not even for a moment!
So today we are going to the pool at 0930 and I'll probably workout before we leave for that, then I have a friend coming over for the kids to have a play date. Then I'm going to try to get the house clean, it is not a disaster, but very messy
