"Get Fit" Week 9

So it's been a tough week all around. I was getting two workouts a day on the elliptical of at least 20 to 25 minutes each. This week I barely did 15 minutes once a day and I have no excuse.. it's just me being lazy. I also didn't eat that well, with my birthday surprise party on Friday evening and hanging out with friends on Saturday I just made poor choices when eating out. I have eaten out four times this week (Taco Bell, El Pollo Loco, Islands and Green Peas) and I'm really trying to limit that to only once a week.

I really feel like a broke record, I know what I'm eating is bad, I have an internal conversation/argument with myself every time I'm about to eat something that I know I shouldn't, and it only stops me 50% of the time. I knew this was going to be tough so I try and not beat myself down about it but I'm nine weeks in and I was hoping to be under 200lbs by now.

I weighted myself this morning like I do every Friday morning and I came in at 200lbs. I didn't lose any weight but on a positive note I didn't gain any wait.. feels pretty much like a wasted week.

But I'm once again going to try and reign in my "bad" eating habits and try to do at least 30 to 45 minutes of cardio/elliptical a day.  Let's hope next Friday has better result then today.

  1. Finding balance is never a waste. I know it's really hard when you don't necessarily so marked progress on the scale. But, you said you had a lazy week. You said you succeed half the time when face with avoiding bad food choices. That's way better than allowing yourself to be completely lazy and do nothing. It's better than losing out in those choices 100% of the time. And you're right, it is better than gaining on the scale. The fact is, you know what you're doing wrong and you're aware that you're making excuses. So keep up the good work. Pick up the pace a little this week and I know you'll make those goals happen :)
