I need a large serving of Inspiration, please.
Lately I have been so uninspired and unmotivated. You may remember me mentioning that I'd like to loose 25 lbs. I've been following Weight Watchers and going to Curves, but unfortunately, I haven't been doing too great with the whole Weight Watchers thing. I go over my points every week, which is so frustrating. I blame most of it on going out to eat way too much. Thankfully I have been ordering what I consider to be more healthy choices, but still.....
As far as Curves goes, I am steadily approaching my second weigh in day. My first weight in was extremely successful! I had lost 7 3/4 inches! Yay! Most of which was in my abs and waist. I typically go to Curves on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Sadly, Curves only counts as 1 activity point as far as WW is concerned. Ugh.
It's been almost two months since I began my weight loss journey, and so far I've only lost 6.2 lbs. I'm not very impressed. Which lead to me not going to Curves one week (well, that was mainly because I pulled a muscle in my back) and not caring about WW for about two weeks. I wasn't really putting any pressure on myself because I felt like bathing suit season was a long ways away. That is until the temps reached the 70's last week. Which made me realize that summer will be here before I know it. I figured it was time I got some new inspiration. How did I do that? I went bikini shopping! ie: I looked at bikini's online. And the picture I've posted is of the bikini I'm going to buy as soon as I loose the remaining 19 lbs. Wow! That's a scary number to me!
So, my game plan has been refreshed! I'm determined to follow my WW points better. Luckily, my week starts over on Wednesdays, and I'm proud to say I stayed within my points yesterday! I'm also going to start walking 45 minutes to 1 hour on my non-Curves days. And, I'm doing crunches every evening. I'm also thinking about going to a yoga class on Wednesday evenings since the yoga class I usually went to in the afternoons was canceled.
Wish me luck and hopefully in another couple of months I'll have some exciting weight loss news for ya'll!
