Hi Loves. I’m still seriously lacking motivation. I attempted to set the intention of working out 10 minutes a day last week. I did 40 minutes Wednesday, and 45 minutes Sunday, and 45 minutes Monday. So sort of a fail at that one….but not really?!
I’m also a planner. I have my paper planner open on my desk daily and wasn’t using it the past week or so. Some how – if I pencil it in and get to cross it off every day – that also helps me.
I’ve gone back to one of my old tricks. At least for the past two days. I watch a show on netflix or amazon and I walk during it. I don’t have to speed walk – I can if I want, but I have to keep moving. No sitting. I want to get back to crossing 5000 steps a day again and did that on Sunday and Monday. I also picked up a new challenge that I started yesterday (Monday) from Cassey at Blogilates. Her challenges are turning into my favorites, they motivate me to cross each box off daily AND they aren’t crazy hard. For a newbie who is out of shape, I’m perfectly fine with that. If you’re a fitness junkie – you’ll hate how weak and simple they are.
So the time as come. I weighed in this morning twice and was the same, did it one more time and it was higher. Did it 3 more times and it held the higher weight. (Yes – I’m a little obsessive.) I experimented with moving the scale around a bit on my kitchen floor after I had mixed feelings about the weight. I was wondering how am I exactly the same a 3rd week in a row? I’m going say give or take I gained half a pound.
You know what? While I’m kind of bummed, I can’t blame anyone else. I’ve been inhaling sweets lately and salty foods. I picked up some apples at the store but then cookies and cinnamon rolls show up in my apartment and I cannot resist.
Here’s to a fresh week as I attempt to make better decisions and resist temptation. I also hope to report in on hitting 5000 steps every day this week and maybe get a little exercise in as well. Until then – have a great day!
