It is Saturday morning. I’m up early. It’s time to go workout. Yeah or nay it doesn’t matter I’m going to do it.
I’ve been struggling with my weight for months now. I’m stuck in the 370s ugh!! Even so, I continue to workout. I think I must be overeating for what I’m doing at the gym. There is no other explanation for it.
“Just keep swimming.” That’s what someone told me today when they asked how it was going with the weight loss. I told them I was stalled. They told me to be patient and to just keep doing what I’m doing. What I’m doing is skipping workouts because of the heat or I don’t feel up to it or whatever the excuse at the moment is. Plus, I do really well with food choices during the day, but at night I find I’m over eating. I’m not eating bad stuff, just overeating too much of the good stuff. It is so easy to overeat when I log everything into Sparkpeople.com I find myself going overboard. I am allotted 2400 calories a day, which should be enough. It is enough, but not when I eat pork country style ribs with barbecue sauce on it.
I’m down five pounds as of today. I’m thrilled. Maybe my stall is over. I’ve been cutting down on what I eat and working out, both of which lead to this place.
My goal is to get to 350 in a couple of months. I would love to lose 5 pounds a week and wonder if I can do it.
So far for the last two weeks I’ve worked out at least three times a week. I’m starting to look forward to it and have a routine down: 10 minutes walking on the treadmill and 15-20 minutes on the recumbent bike, then circuit training with weights. Today, I went and worked out right after church. I’m probably going to have to workout right after work because if I go home first I’ll stay home.
