Ok so before I get lazy time for my Weigh In
Current Weight: 254lbs (yeah you read it right. You couldn't believe the immediate pep-talk I had to give myself the second I read this in order to prevent myself from shedding a tear or creating a scene in the girls locker room.. shit)
Work Out Achievement: I started the elliptical machine like I mentioned earlier.. and although I wasn't able to spend too much time in the gym last week yesterday I was able to burn 820 calories in one hour using different cardio equipment. Of course my legs were jelly at the end of it but I felt pretty proud.
Goal(s): Obviously I'm not very happy with my discovery that I've gained 4 pounds. So my goal is not only to lose those extra pesky pounds but lose more than that so I can actually say I progressed this month. Chocolate is definitely NOT my friend. Other than that simple fact this week is the week I'm supposed to start taking exercise classes at 24. I missed this mornings class (though I made up for it after work by stopping by a gym) so tomorrow I HAVE to go. I'll make a full scale report on my experience taking group classes. I haven't really done that before.. well after college anyway.
This little insight also made me realize that I really have to work hard on finding a balance between exercise and diet. I need to find something that will work for me and won't make me feel starved and won't force me to crash or hurt myself trying to 'burn it all off!' LOL.
This news is so frustrating though. I'm not going to lie on how upset I was to learn that I've gained weight. But like my previous post I can't think negatively. It won't make this easier or better. I have to find a balance. I've also recently bought a cheap $1 pocket Dummies book on How to Better Your Life or something like that.
Yeah.. how many people do you think would buy this edition? LOL LOL
I'm grabbing straws wherever I find them people so if you have any suggestions you let me know!
Joking aside I seriously would love to know of any suggestions people might have. My Dummies book advised me to ask 'happy seeming people about what they have done to get so happy' so Happy people: Please.. let me know!
