It is only week 2. I already feel like I've messed up. I let the tracking slide a little a couple of days. I didn't go crazy but I find if I'm not super strict I gain. Even with my thyroid medications, my metabolism is slug-like. It is super frustrating. I just need to stick with it each day. If I screw up, I just need to start over right then. No more I've stopped tracking calories, so I might as well go crazy and cake. Thankfully I didn't do that this week. I'm trying to take it one day at a time.
Here's what I did for workouts this week:
Friday= elliptical trainer 50 minutes
Sunday= Jog/walk 4.25 miles in 45 minutes
Tuesday= Jog 15 minutes, 30 minute weight training/cardio circuit, and jog 10 minutes
Wednesday= Shovel snow for 1 hour and 40 minutes. That was a great workout since we got 27 inches.
Thursday= Jog 10 minutes, 30 minute weight training/cardio circuit, Shovel 15 minutes (I was trying to move a little more snow so we can see out into the road)
I think I did pretty well with the working out. I continue to go to the gym. I hate working out late at night because it messes with my sleep but I need to do it then or it simply won't happen.
I gained 1/2lb this week. I'm still down 4 1/2 lbs. It is sad that I feel like I'm getting stronger but if the number on the scale isn't what I want it to be that I get super bummed. I'm trying to think about the positives. It is just hard sometimes.
