Weigh-in Results and Working Out Challenges

I gained 0.6 pound this week. No huge surprise as TOM is visiting and I'm retaining water, I think. Either way, it isn't anything I can't handle! I anticipate gains from time to time, that is a normal part of losing weight, strange as it may seem.

I'm having a hard time making the time to get to the gym. I've worked out with Jillian's 30 day shred a few times, but the last time I was at the gym it was January 19th and I'm due to go back for a following up with a personal trainer tomorrow, a month later! I have no news to report to the trainer since I haven't been back. I have a desire to get up and go at 5AM every day, yet I really like to sleep as late as possible. I want to go when my son is at school, but he goes at noon, right in the middle of the day, and that just isn't convenient to my schedule. By the time DH is home from work, I'm teaching piano lessons, having dinner and then am too tired to think about going to work out. Excuses, excuses, excuses! I know that if I work out consistently that I feel better, have more energy, sleep better, digest better...the list goes on and on. So, my dear readers, I'm going to recommit to it tomorrow with that meeting I have scheduled with the personal trainer. I'm going to post here on a new workout page how many minutes I'm working out each day. I'll give myself one day a week off (Tuesdays), so if you see a day go by that I don't have minutes logged, leave me a comment and tell me to get off my rear and move (seriously, please do!)! Cheers to earlier bedtimes and early morning movement!

Annie, the BEST and FASTEST at home exercise I have found is with Leslie Sansone Walk at Home dvds..AND she has free workouts on Exercise TV on cable "On Demand" and downloadable workouts on exercisetv.tv The intensities of her workouts vary, as does mileage and time..and it WORKS!!! (I'm living proof!)

Annie,
You are doing a great job. You will have a few gains but look at how much you have lost! I am also stuck in an exercise rut--er not exercising. I was doing really well doing the P90x then hurt my back. I did a few days of Jillian Michael's 30 day shred last month but I am going to get back on the p90x next week. I will check for your updates!

At my weigh in on Saturday, I was down 0.6 and everybody around me was either down or up 0.6, weird hu?

I exercise at night, that is what works best for me. I really dislike getting up early so I will go to the gym later in the evening, come home and take a shower then go to bed. It also saves me time in the morning cuz I am already clean :) Plus I sleep so much better too!

You know what they say... you have to want something really bad to make it happen...
