Since there’s no Zumba class this morning (sadness) I’m perusing the exercise selections on Comcast and came across Jillian Michael’s 30 day Shred, 1. I have it playing now to see what’s the dilly, because while the Wedding Workout is cool, I feel like it just isn’t “active” enough for my current fitness level. It was nice to get me back into the swing of things, but it’s not challenging enough. Do any of you like Jillian Michael’s workouts?
Last night was funny. HTB and I were cuddling up in the big chair watching Couples Retreat, when the power hiccuped a couple times and then completely went out. The wind was crazy last night, and we got really wet, nasty snow. When the power goes out, this beeping sound in the main condo hallways go on, and basically doesn’t stop until the power comes back on — weird. Well, after lighting candles, we ventured out into the hall, where it was a neighborhood block party! All in jammies, with our puppies 🙂 It was cute. We borrowed a bottle of vino from one of our neighbors and went home and played cards with Marisa until the power came back on.
Now it’s cold and snowy out. Yick. I was so hoping that it would snow all day today and cancel my class, but no such luck.
Seriously. Ever since I changed my diet and pumped up the workouts, I’ve gained about 2-3 pounds and the scale won’t budge. I know, I know… the scale doesn’t tell the whole story, your body is recompositioning itself, etc. It just really depresses me, like, a little. Because I’m really going at it, and the results aren’t rolling on in. It’s been over a month now with the eating plan, and about 2 weeks with the steady exercise. I’m clocking my calories in at about 1200 a day. And it’s not like my clothes are fitting looser anymore. What gives??
I just have to tell myself every single day not to give up on it, because that’s what 2009 Sarah would have done, and has done a lot. It’s just one of those days where I need to remind myself that yes, I’m doing this to lose weight for the wedding, but it’s also a lifestyle plan. I need to focus on all the cool things I’m learning and experimenting with, and less on the gosh darn souls-sucking scale. I know.
Well, I’ve got a ton of school work to do, so I’m going to hide my computer for a few hours and get on that.
Have a great day!
