Weekly Weigh In

I'll let my number tell you how my week went:

The damn pound is back. I had a relvation yesterday: I have learned what it takes to live life at 172 pounds, an improvement over the only other lifestyle I knew: 195 - 210lbs. I understand what foods to eat, what exercise to do and how to be 172 pounds. What I need to learn is how to be 171. Sounds simple, but isn't. I need the next level of changes: harder work outs, better food choices. With that in mind, I put together a work out schedule for the week.

M: 2.5 miles, abs
T: 4 miles
W: yoga
R: 3.5 miles, abs
F: strength train, abs
S: 5k race
S: rest day

I'll let you know how I am at keeping my schedule. Ab work is my very-least-favorite-thing, probably because my abs are SO weak. Making myself do it will be a huge challenge.

As far as food, eh. Some not good choices made last week. Why is eating right so difficult? Is it for everyone, or just me? What is your best tip for making good food choices?

  1. Don't beat yourself up too much...eating healthy can definitely be hard for (I think) most people. I especially have trouble right before that time of the month. If I don't have chocolate or ice cream, watch out, people!!

    One thing that always helps me is to try and just keep as much healthy food around as possible. I know it's easier said than done (especially because you can't really control that at work), but at home I try to have a lot of fruits, yogurts, and all that jazz on hand.
