Today was my day to measure myself. And I did.
Waste: 40 inches up .5 inches from last week :(
Hips: 44 inches up .5 from last week :(
Such a bummer when you feel like you're doing everything you can and you the scale goes up instead of down. I know there will be an ebb and flow of these kinds of things, but it's still hard to actually see it.
There are also the times when I feel like I look really good, then I see myself in the mirror at a side angle and I remember that I'm not super skinny yet!
I was thinking today, "Why did I let myself get so big? I know the right way to eat and that I need to continually exercise, but still I got big."
I can only use the "I just had a baby 4 months ago" excuse for so long. I am not being hard on myself, just realistic! Normally seeing the inches go up would have made me lose my resolve and I would have eaten every cupcake in my fridge. But I am proud to say that did not happen today. No.
I put on my big girl panties, laced up my sneakers, ate some eggs and cantaloupe for breakfast and got my sweat on (granted the amount of sweat was small because exercising at home with a toddler --especially my toddler--is pretty darn difficult!)
So today my great accomplishment was to overcome myself--and I did!
As far as workout's last week, I pretty much rocked it!
Monday: 30 minute workout DVD
Tuesday: ran 2.5 miles walked .5
Wednesday: nothing...school started and this has really thrown my exercising off!
Thursday: ran 2.5 miles walked .5 in under 35 minutes!! *whoot, whoot*
Friday: 30 minute workout DVD
So many days of not exercising is hard on me...I feel like a big fat lazy bum. Hopefully this weekend I can try to get some more exercise in even though it's way more fun to hang out with my family and watch the Olympics!!
