So not a huge loss this week but it put me over the hump and I am now officially 70lbs lighter! I lost 0.9lbs this week for a new weight of 181.2lbs.
Here is a photo of my weight loss! I can’t believe I used to walk around with this extra weight on me.
I know why my loss wasn’t bigger – mainly because I had to guesstimate some items, I’ve been feeling bloated all week – I should’ve been drinking even more water, and also I only earned 33 activity points this week. I’m definitely noticing that I have to be even more active now to maintain higher losses. I think my body might be getting used to my exercises. I have to shake it up. A friend of mine is a personal trainer – I think I’ll ask her how much she charges and if she’d be willing to create a few exercises for me. I’m also going to try out yoga – I know it’s not high intensity, but just to give my body something new to try.
I bought some yoga vouchers through Groupon a little while ago. Side note – if you don’t know about Groupon check it out! I love it. Basically it’s a coupon site, but it’s city-specific (North American only I believe) and they offer a new coupon each day, BUT a certain number of people have to buy it for it go through. If not enough people buy it, you don’t get charged and no coupon.
I got a coupon at a local yoga studio for $23. It includes 5 classes and a weekend workshop. I’m pretty happy with this as it gives me time to properly try it out and everything I’ve seen here for drop-in classes is minimum $10-$15 per class. My only thing is that I think I’ll have to wait until mid-July to try it out as I’ll be in and out of town on business during the summer. It might make sense to use them when I’m a bit more settled.
For now I’ll continue what I’m doing and will try to shake it up as much as I can. I will definitely continue my running. I had my first post-race run this afternoon and it went pretty well. I did 4.5K in 35 minutes. Not too bad. I’m just going to spend the next couple weeks just focusing on upping my endurance so I can do a full 5K outside more easily.
Next week it’ll have been 1 year since I’ve been on this journey officially at weight watchers. It would be great to break into the 170s for the event. But no pressure on me. I will do my best and exercise more since it is a long weekend. I also think I will not post my daily food log this week. I’m back on track – slowly but surely.
Have a great week everyone 🙂
