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.
