Weight Update 7.0
Sunday, July 22, 2012
No change. I did better on my calories this week, too. I was only over on 2 days and not by very much (59 calories on Monday and 160 on Wednesday). At least I didn’t gain anything this past week.
This next week will be the last full week of my second workout for the summer. On August 1st, my nephew is giving me a new workout that is designed to last for 4 weeks. That will take me through the end of August and be my last workout of my summer challenge. I’ll post details when I have them. It will be a grueling and challenging workout. I’ve already done a modified version of it at his house. It kicked my butt to be sure! I was sore immediately and stayed that way for about 3 days. It’s an all over body workout that incorporates weights and cardio combined into one workout.
The highlight of the week was a trip to Fashion Bug yesterday afternoon to spend a couple gift cards I had. By the way…if you have gift cards from there I suggest you go spend them. Fashion Bug is closing in January. The store in my town is already liquidating (I assume because profits are too low). Anyway, the highlight wasn’t the sale, although that was an added bonus. The highlight was trying on jeans. Fashion Bug has a sizing system called Right Fit jeans. They come in 3 different cuts: yellow square, red triangle, blue circle. The cuts are based on your type of figure: straight, moderately curvy or curvy. I tried on blue circle 14’s and 12’s yesterday. I couldn’t believe how big the 14’s were! That was the last size jean I bought at that store about a year ago. But the 12’s fit! They might be a little tight after I wash them but they fit in the store and they were 50% off so guess who got a new pair of smaller jeans! 🙂
I hope you have a good week and accomplish the goals you set for yourself in the gym. Don’t give up even when you get discouraged. I had a lot of excitement going into this adventure back in June and it has waned a lot since then. But I am not going to stop trying to progress and strive for fitness. It is worth it! Every day isn’t going to be like the one I had on the elliptical machine back in June. Most days are going to be average and low key. But every day I’m in the gym is a day moving forward toward my goal of being fit and trim. So I won’t psyche myself out doing cardio or when I’m laying in bed and I really, really don’t want to get out and go to the gym. I am going to keep pressing toward my goal. Don’t you give up either.
