Workouts are on track

I finally have my workout schedule on track!  I had been hit and miss with the insane heat in our area, but not anymore.  Last week I made a promise to myself not to make any excuses for missing a workout.  I had many "excuses" last week: my daughter's cheer camp schedule, insane heat (100 degrees), and my normal crazy, busy lifestyle.  Each time I started to justify missing a day of working out, I had to remind myself the importance of working out and why I needed to do it.  The need isn't just physical but mental and emotional as well.  I just feel so much better about myself when I stay on track with exercising. 

On my weigh-in day, I lost just .2 of a pound.  I was really disappointed and I think I even said "seriously!" aloud.  However, when I took the time to journal/log my weight, I realized that I went out to eat too many times.  So fingers crossed that my exercise plans stay on track and I don't indulge in too much food this week.   Eating out at restaurants gets my weight loss off track every time.  I try to limit myself to one restaurant meal on the weekend and one during the week.  Last week I went out to eat three times during the week!  I just can't hide that on the scale. 


  1. I love that quote! Good for you on putting the excuses in perspective and just getting it done.

    I know a .2 loss isn't a lot, but at least it is not a gain!

  2. I just stumbled across this blog, and I have to say WOW! You've lost so much weight already. You look great! And, while 0.2 pounds isn't what you wanted, it's moving in the right direction. You'll get there eventually.
