Weigh in Friday! I can’t believe another week has come and gone already! That’s why I am trying to make every day count, because before you know it, its time to weigh in again!
For those of you who don’t know, I am doing Weight Watchers on-line. I’ve gone to meetings in the past, and I enjoy that, but my schedule is kind of crazy and it was hard to commit to a weekly meeting. I LOVE WW online! There is a ton of information and I love logging everything on-line.
So…..I lost 1.6 pounds this week! So my grand total is 11.4 pounds in 8 weeks. Not as fast as I would like, but I am feeling great.
One thing I am integrating into my day is exercise. If it weren’t for my co-worker’s suggestion of working out during our lunch, I probably wouldn’t be doing as much. I highly recommend a work out buddy, because when you aren’t feeling like working out, or think you can’t go any farther, you can push each other to do it! For me, I am NOT a morning person, so waking up before my family and working out is never going to happen. I used to try to work out when I got home from work, but after being gone all day just to come home and leave again, I had a little Mommy guilt going on, and by the time everyone is in bed, working out at 9:00 p.m. I would usually not do it, because I was too tired! Working out during my hour lunch break has been perfect for me!
Our routine is jogging 4 days a week (3.3 miles) and going to a cardio sculpt boot camp one day a week. PLUS, I have been riding my bike to work which is another 3.6 miles!! We are on week 7 of doing that and we are hoping to keep that going!
This brings me to a new site I found called The Daily Mile. If you need motivation for moving, or are training for a race, or event, this is the site for you. It’s free to join, and basically you can post what exercise you have done and it will keep track of the miles/minutes for you!
If one day you are on the fence about whether to exercise, you can log in and see what activity other people have done that day and maybe it will motivate you to get your gym shoes on and off the couch!
How many of you exercise on a regular basis??
I hope everyone has a Fantastic Friday! My daughter has a sleepover tonight, so we are taking our 2 sons to see the movie “9” tonight. Is should be fun!
