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.
