Previous weight: 158.4
This week's results: -1.2lbs!
Even though I indulged in some Halloween sweets over the weekend, and of course raided Oro's Trick-or-Treat bag for 2 pieces yesterday, in addition to the 5 I was gifted at work, I still weighed in with a loss!
- Drinking More Water. I've gotten back on track this last week, downing two 32oz water bottles daily most days of the week. Being that I live in Minnesota, and the winter months are approaching, I require a little more water because of the dry air. It does wonders for my hair and skin in addition to the health of my body, so there's a lot of motivation there.
- Going to the gym. Given that this last week, I opted out most days, I am going to focus on just GOING to the gym. I need to spend at least 10 minutes on an activity, and if I want to leave after that, I can. I've used this strategy before, and I almost never want to leave, figuring "Hey, I'm already here. Let's just get this done." Hopefully it'll just help build the habit of going and reaping all the benefits of exercise.
- Strength Training. Since my return to WW, I have definitely been focusing on cardio and have mostly ditched my strength training routine in order to get the most out of my 30-40 minute gym sessions since that is the only amount of time I can spare. However, I just received The New Rules of Lifting for Women and I want to give this program an honest shot. I would like to try at least a few exercises from the book this week.
- Positive Self-Talk. Focusing on this has greatly improved the quality of my life in the last week. It's the most difficult of all of the goals, especially after 30 years of self-talk that tends to lean toward the negative. I am determined to overthrow that little jerk devil on my shoulder who constantly points me toward the things I'm doing wrong. I want to focus on what's right, because there's a lot of it!
