Weight for Me Monday - week 8

I was a little disappointed in myself this week.  After having fit the treadmill into my day 17 days in a row (WOW) without missing a day... I skipped 2 days in the last week.  It's a little hard to keep going when the scale refuses to move.

I did get in 5 days with exercise out of 7 days this week.  I walked 30 minutes on the treadmill 3 times... and I did Couch to 5K 2 days (week 3 days 1 and 2).  I will admit that week 3 of Couch to 5K is totally kicking my butt.  Just the thought of jogging for 3 minutes at a time made me want to sit down and rest.  But, I did it.  Day 1 was HORRIBLE... but day 2 was unbelievably easier.  I'm hoping when I do day 3 (tomorrow) it will still seem easier.

I got on the scale this morning thinking of how annoyed I was with myself for skipping exercise.  The scale had the nerve to read 177 lbs.  I exercise every day with no loss... I miss days and lose 1.5 pounds.  There is really just no telling what the scale is going to say.  I had to weigh myself 3 times to make sure the scale was sticking with it.

So... 177 lbs this week.  I've lost 3.5 lbs since I started.  Not as much as I'd hoped... but that is 3.5 lbs that wouldn't budge before.  It's slow... but at least it's going.
