I really don’t know where this past week has gone. It has been a rough and tumble week, all kinds of things going on for good and for insane. Hunter and Hayley have certainly been keeping me on my toes.
Anyway, the week preceding the gym went very well. In addition to going to the gym, I continued walking on my treadmill at home. I watched what I ate and felt pretty good. When I got to the gym on Thursday, Jess said “we” needed to take it to another level. This means more weight on the machines and a more intense workout. Wow, I felt like I was training for a triathalon! Whether it was lower body or upper body, she kept piling on weights and I thought I was going to die. By the time I got to the last reps, my limbs were literally shaking, I didn’t think I would finish. I was dripping in sweat and felt muscles that I didn’t even know I had. Now it was time for the weigh in. I marched into the room with the scale figuring “oh I bet I lost 3lbs”. Jess set the scale to what I weighed last week, I got on……..O lbs lost. I was shocked, it couldn’t be! I had been consistently loosing EVERY week! Once I calmed down, Jess explained to me that yes, I had been loosing consistently but there will be times I will not lose anything. She told me not to give up and not to go home and binge or anything like that, just keep doing what I have been doing and I will continue to lose weight.
I have been fine since then. I have watched what I consumed and was able to do my treadmill twice. I am unable to go to the gym this week which has me a little nervous. I am leaving for Florida today and will be back on Saturday. Although the trip isn’t primarily for pleasure, I can do some damage while I visit with Katie at night 🙂 Hopefully she will hold me accountable!! I plan on taking a walk on the beach each day and am looking forward to doing that.
Who know what this next week will bring but I plan on giving it my best shot. Losing 30 lbs. is tremendous for me and I don’t want to blow it. I am confident that once I get back on my regular schedule the pounds will continue to “melt” off 🙂
