Today’s Weight: 158
Today’s change: +1.2
Well doesn’t that suck ! I know the gain isn’t from what I ate – my food intake was fine. I didn’t even feel heavy when I woke up this morning – I felt fine or even like I dropped a pound or two. And when you’re as conscious about your weight as we get on this protocol you can usually tell, yes?
What was different was I actually went to the gym and took TWO classes. I did Pilates first, and then belly dancing. The Pilates class was the hardest Pilates class I’ve ever taken – it was taught by a man and let me tell you he was *tough*. I was shaking after it was done. But I forged ahead anyway. I knew I would love the belly dancing class since I’ve been taking it somewhere else, and this class was definitely more of a workout than the class I’ve been going to. I was thrilled when I checked the class schedule at my gym and saw belly dancing – I’m already paying for it through my gym membership. I was having to pay extra for the other classes I was going to.
I’ve said for a while that I was going to start working out – and yesterday it finally commenced. What finally got me off my ass? Besides just wanting to firm up and shape up – my best girlfriend in SA, who was unemployed for 6 months, started a new job in Dallas this week. I’m very happy that she found a cussin’ awesome job but very *very* sad that she will be moving soon. It took me two years to find a really a good friend in SA and there is definitely going to be a big something missing in my life when she moves. 😦 That’s how I feel about that. But we’ll be friends for life. Nothing can change that.
The other thing is that I miss my sweetie all the time – it’s ridiculous. I don’t get to see him as often as I would like as he lives about 45 minutes from SA. Having said that, I think it’s probably a good thing for both us in the long run. I’m in this for the long haul with this man and am willing to be patient. It’s just difficult. I’m an Aries, after all. I’m ruled by passion and there is plenty of passion in my heart for him.
I think it’s important for me to view these things for what they are and not let them get me down. Sitting on my ass at home does nothing constructive for me. Working out in the gym will make me feel better AND look better. So now that I’ve finally started down this new path – wind me up and watch me go. I need to do measurements again soon, it’s been a while, and I sure need a point of reference.
My food yesterday: 1/2 grilled chicken breast for breakfast. Grilled chicken with bell peppers, lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo for lunch. For dinner I had pork chops with squash and green beans.
Today I’m going to drink tons of water – I think my water intake was lower than normal yesterday. I’ll get rid of this little gain.
Have an incredible, fabulous, magical day, and happy losses! xoxo
