There comes a time when every life goes off course. In this desperate moment you must choose your direction. Each morning you choose to move forward or to simply give up. I am on a mission to get my old self back, both mentally and physically.
Oh those kids with their instant gratification... yeah, yeah. Well, that's me baby. [This is more of a venting thing than a 100% serious thing because I know how this is going to sound.]
Anyway, I weigh myself every day and am only down 0.5 since Sunday. I know that is something, but I want to see it moving down lower, faster because I have a 3 lb goal for this week (and the same goal next week). Sunday, Monday and today, I have done the Biggest Loser bootcamp for 25 minutes (I am sooo sore!) and 60 minutes on the elliptical at a level 4, keeping a good pace. And I've been eating very well, at about 30 of my daily 33 pts. All this should add up to more than .5 lbs, right? I'm being so stupid, aren't I? I know... just writing this, I feel kind of greedy, but I'm just venting. I want to see results pronto! I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday, but whatever :)
Do you think doing the BL bootcamp with weights and lots of strength training might be making me gain muscle which could make me not lose that much? This crossed my mind, but then how do the contestants of the real Biggest Loser lose all that weight? Well, we will see on Sunday I guess.
My parents are coming home today and I am marinating chicken to grill (a healthy curry marinade) and have asparagus to roast in the oven. My dad will probably want rice or potatoes, but I doubt I'll have any. Gunna stay on plan!
Attitude of Gratitude: I am grateful (even tho it may not seem like it) to have at least lost 0.5 and am working hard to lose the rest so I meet my goal. This goal is huge motivation... why didn't I think of it sooner?
