It took me 9 weeks to get to a 10 pound weight loss. I am holding strong at that number FOR NOW. I should have lost weight, but ONE meal did me in…(I believe)
EPIC FAIL: I went to dinner with my Uncle on Saturday evening, and I ordered ravioli with a chicken meatball. Either way, I now know that I need to count calories. That will begin tomorrow!
Using my Fit Bit again ~ Now that I am walking Simon regularly and going to my Wellness Program at Spectrum Physical Therapy, I am warming up my Fit Bit to help me make sure I meet my daily exercise goals. My Physical Therapist says that I need to start off very slowly…and, not to get discouraged, as it is typical to go up, go down, and even plateau. But, his Wellness Program is a huge piece of HOPE for me to finally get the working out part right!
I began the Beach Body “Slim in 6” this last week, and I am loving it. Since I cannot jump around like on the CIZE program (for now), I dance around the house…which is fun, too. At least I know I will not injure myself.
I did have to rest for ONE day, because I have tendonitis in my left ankle, and I had to get a Cortisone Shot.
NEW PLAN ~ One Day at a time!!!!
One thing I learned I cannot live without this week ~ Walking My Dog…Simon. Keeping up with his energy is infectious.
Positive Thinking. Another important aspect of this Challenge. Not giving up, is another one.
With the holidays coming, I am getting nervous about my success. I hope I can remain vigilant.
Please join me next week, where I will have been with the PT program for one full week!
This Weeks Total Tally:
Beginning Weight: 271.0
Present Weight: 261.0 (No Change)
Body Fat: 61.9% (Up 1%) SHOOTING FOR 30%
Total Body Water: 20.0 (WAY TOO LOW, no changes) SHOOTING FOR 55%
Muscle Mass: 27.7% (Down .4%) What I have read so far, states this should be at 35%.
3.6 lbs. of Bone Mass (no changes) THIS SHOULD BE 12%. I am not sure as to why this number is not changing.
