Not a whole lot to report really. The weight is not moving a whole lot. I have been snacking more than I should and not drinking the water.
I had to quit doing the Jillian 30 Day Shred I hurt the top of my foot (maybe from the jumping). Been frustrating…I wanted to change my routing hoping that would kick start things, but it’s not working out like I had planned.
I even looked back 2 years ago when I was at my lowest weight, and my calorie intake I would say is about the same. When I am good I try to be around 1500, but it’s not dropping off like before. Even then I was using the stationary bike. Perhaps it’s age, hormonal changes, life stresses…not sure.
I do know that I HAVE to stop comparing my progress to others. Two people at the same weight can look very different. I want to break up with the scale, but I don’t see that happening. I NEED some sort of measure of progress, and that’s one that shows the fastest (not always the most accurate).
Anyway, I have decided to do what I want for exercise. Do what my body can do without injury. If I get hurt it sucks for everyone here. So I started riding the stationary bike again, adding some abs and weights, and Zumba. I am being careful because of the foot and a groin muscle I pulled WALKING..yeah I have felt really old this last couple of weeks! However with Zumba I can adjust to not hurt myself.
Now that it finally got to feeling like Summer I am outside trimming, mowing, weeding, hanging clothes out to dry etc.
Goals? Sure I’d LOVE to weigh 145 and a size4, but I going smaller goal and saying 155 lbs. I know I have some pounds I need to lose, because my bigger goal is to trim up the mid section. I see it everyday and that’s my main goal to trim up and have clothes fit nicely again!
