Despite the fact I spent the end of last week completely off plan... I'm feeling good! ...and I'll fess up... I had Cheetos today, too. ...but I gave my hubby strict orders to make them disappear before I get home! I will call it a victory because I didn't allow myself to continue to go crazy... (like I usually do.) I almost let myself off the hook to go to the gym, too. I had a funeral to play Taps at and got home much later from that than I thought I would. I didn't go to the gym yesterday so I knew I HAD to go today! I swam, and I went 10 laps (500 meters) without stopping! I was pretty excited! It took me about 17 minutes.
I'm thinking about getting a personal trainer. I think just a couple times a month. I'd like help in the weights department. I rarely lift weights and I'd like to start. I just don't know where to start, how to develop a schedule, techniques... plus I think having a trainer would be awesome to keep me going and motivated.
Due to my disobedience of last week I had a "no change" on the scale... which really was a gain then a loss back to where I was.
It's amazing what losing weight can do for your confidence. I feel really good about myself and how my body is shaping up. I will get my husband to take pictures of me tomorrow morning and post them. I kinda wanted to wait till I reached the "magic" 100 pound loss point... but I think seeing it in a picture would be just what I need to put those Cheetos down and hit the gym. Tomorrow I'm going to try my first "brick" which is a bike workout followed by a run workout. I'm going to go to group ride at the gym then hit the treadmill.
