This week started out well. I decided last week that I would exercise five days out of the week. I actually did it. I am so proud of myself for doing this. It is so much harder then you would think to make yourself exercise everyday. Every day I would try to talk myself out of exercising by saying to myself that missing one day won't hurt or I will just eat less today. Yeah right, me eat less! It is kind of funny the way your mind works by trying to justify not exercising or overeating. Well I won the exercise battle this week. I even started Level 2 of Jillian Micheal's 30 Day Shred. I have done level 2 the past two days and I feel like I am going to die in the middle of it but I will continue to do it because I am already seeing a difference in the shape of my body. My legs seem to be getting smaller and I am starting to look like I have a waist again. I thought I had lost my waist forever after having my last baby but I was wrong and thanks to Jillian Micheals I am getting it back.
I have been drinking a lot of water this week. I did catch myself not drinking much over the weekend. It is so hard to make sure you drink a lot when you are out of the house and busy doing something. When I realized I wasn't drinking much I stepped it up a little and drank extra water the rest of the week.
I am proud to say I tracked every single point this week. I went over by 2.5 points. I am not very happy about eating every single exercise point that I earned. This is something that I have to work on.
I did have a few binges this week that you can read about in my previous posts but I made sure to track every point I ate even when I binged. I realized it is not fun to put 11.5 points in my points tracker for Hershey Kisses with Almonds. :) I really need to stop binging.
And the moment you have all been waiting for. The number on the scale this morning was 205.2. I am pretty excited that I lost almost a pound. I was hoping for two but after my binge two nights ago I figured it wouldn't happen. I really think that if I don't eat my exercise points I will lose so much faster. Maybe I would do better if I don't put my exercise in my tracker then I won't have them listed to use. I am going to try this and see how it goes. I will let you know next week if it works for me.
Goals for the week:
1. Don't eat my exercise points.
2. Eat more fruit and veggies.
3. Track my points every day.
4. Stay within my points.
5. Exercise 5 days this week.
6. Drink lots of water.
7. Don't snack as much.
8. No eating in the middle of the night.
