Deep thoughts and First weigh in as a Lifetimer!

First things first!  I have been really stressing lately about the whole "Weigh in" thing.  I almost think it would have been better for me to just keep weighing in weekly for awhile.  That was suggested to me by my wise leader Roz.  It feels like it's just way to easy to let things slide, then frantically try to get to a good place in time for the monthly weigh in.  But, I'm doing good.  So far.  I just have to get it in my head that I'm doing this all the time, every day.  Tracking and eating right has to happen every day for me.  Unfortunately, lately that hasn't been the case.  Today was a good day though so after my run (5K still haven't tried to do more than that) I headed over to WW.  I was a pound under my goal so I was very happy with that number!

My exercise has been going really good these days and that makes me happy.  I have been doing my weight class (Body Pump) 2 times a week and then running on the opposite days.  I feel like that is "do-able" for the long term.  I still really miss Yoga, Spin, and Zumba and want to try to find a way to fit those in on occasion.  I think it's funny that all I'm using my gym membership for is the 2 classes a week, but when I think back to all the times I have joined a gym and then not gone AT ALL it isn't so bad.  It's always there for me to use, when the weather is bad or if I decide to take a different class.

For the "deep thoughts" portion of this post, I was asked the other day at work how I had lost all the weight.  A question I get asked a lot actually.  Mostly I just say, Weight Watchers and the gym but I said this "I said no to food when I really wanted to say yes and I said yes to working out when I really wanted to say no".   No easy fix folks.  Eat less and move more.
