Today in our WW meeting we talked about negative self talk and how damaging it can be, so, with that in mind, I will focus on the positive!
First, last week I earned 77 activity points at the gym! Yes, that is right! I did 8 hours of intense cardio, 2 hours of weight lifting classes, and lots and lots of stretching along with some yoga! (I have created my own Biggest Loser ranch at HOME!) I am having so much fun watching my body shape change and making friends at the gym that I don't even notice all of the WORK! (for the grandmas....the kids were not in the childcare 10+ hours last week, some of those classes were before they woke up and some were after they went to bed so they didn't even know I was gone!)
Second, I journaled my food every. single. day! I stayed within my points AND didn't even use my extra flex points for the week. Although given all of the activity, I think I may eat just a little more this week and see what happens. I am going to adjust my points from "sitting most of the time" to "spends most of the time standing/walking". I think I am no longer a sedentary person! (can I get an AMEN) I have finally become an "active" person! YEAH!
Okay, so now back to why the POSITIVE self talk lesson was great for me today! I was up 1.2 pounds. Yes, UP. I know why. I increased my weights at my weight lifting class on Sunday due to much encouragement from the trainer. The first thing I thought was, great, I know I will be sore and up at my weigh in on Tuesday. But the real truth is, I want to change my shape more than I want to see a smaller number each week. I know next week will be another big number down on the scale. I have lost almost 8 lbs in the past 6 weeks so I am well on my way to being successful with my 20 lbs in 20 weigh ins goal! I will be HOTter for the Holidays (thanks Kami)!
