Weight for Me Monday - week 12
I have a couple things to share...
1. I am really trying to get exercise in every day. It is really not easy while trying to get use to the new schedule of having both kids at home all day. I did get in 4 days this week: 2 treadmill walks and Couch to 5K 2 times (week 5 day 3 and week 6 day 1).
2. Without being on a specific diet, I am trying really hard to be more conscious of what I'm eating. I'm trying to watch portions. I like to snack so it's hard not to snack when the kids snack, but I'm trying to choose more fruit.
Even with the efforts I've been making... my weight just seems to have a mind of it's own. This morning the scale was back at 178.5 lbs. In the past few weeks I've been 178.5, 177, 178.5, 177 and now 178.5 AGAIN. Talk about yo-yo. I gotta figure out how to cut the string!
It's getting really frustrating. I keep making the effort and don't seem to be getting anything from it. If it was just the weight I'd be less annoyed... but I don't really enjoy C25K (or jogging at all for that matter), my stamina for jogging isn't really improving much (like, I can pretty easily jog 3 minutes which I couldn't do 10 weeks ago... but that's not gonna get me far), and I really can't say my energy level is increasing.
It's hard to keep trying when I don't seem to be getting anything out of it. Keep trying I will though. And... when I go for my physical at the end of July I'll certainly have a lot of questions for my new doctor about what I need to do to get a change.
