Just me this morning!
So yesterday I weighed myself and was still not seeing crazy jaw dropping numbers and I let out a frustrated sigh. Craig heard my outburst and entered the kitchen where I have my scale. He gave me his usual your crazy look because I was standing there in only a tank top & underwear with my pajama pants on the floor yelling at the scale. "Chloe? Uhh...Are you okay?" He cautiously muttered. He then glanced down at the scale and mouthed the "Oh" he knew I didn't need to hear. He quietly left the kitchen to give me a my moment.
A few minutes later I put my pants back on and emerged from our tiny kitchen. I didn't expect Craig to be sitting on the couch staring at me with his lips pursed together. I said, "What?" to him and I didn't expect his answer at all.
"Chloe, I want you to not weigh yourself until next Monday, uh the 27th, when your next blog post is up. It's not fair to you to keep weighing yourself everyday because your not going to see any results that way. Besides babe, you've only been at the gym a week. You need to give your body time to adjust and react. Please don't step on that scale and trust me you'll see a difference in 2 weeks time. Oh and even if the scale isn't showing it, I can totally tell a difference in you already."
Sometimes I really love this man of mine. His encouraging rant was just what I wanted to hear! I know it's bad to weigh yourself everyday but it is a bad habit of mine that I promise to break this week. No stepping on that scale at all. This week I'm going to be kind to myself and be proud of my last week's accomplishments. =)
A picture of part of the circuits at my circuit training class I almost walked out of on Friday.
Like I said yesterday I am proud of myself for sticking to it with the circuit class but damn it was difficult! I'm proud that I went to Power/Strength Yoga twice also last week. I didn't realize how involved Yoga can be. I think movies and TV Shows just usually show someone wrapped up like a pretzel and say yeah that's yoga but it's a whole body experience that I hate to say it I think I'm a lil less stressed after those two classes! My fitness journey isn't just going to be just yoga classes but I'm finding it very good to take a hard class then a yoga class to stretch out the muscles!
Eating wasn't as successful as my exercise efforts. However I am striving for 3 meals a day at least with tons of water. Eating well is something I will definitely be striving for a better attitude on this week! Less carbs later in the day is going to be a big goal for me!
My favorite new 3pm snack - Dannon Light & Fit Yogurt w/ Frozen berries & Frozen Strawberries
Cheers to another week of Exercise & Eating Right!
Who's with me! =)
