My weigh-in day was Friday. I lost 0.2. That may not seem like a lot, and in pounds it isn’t. But, I am happy that the scale went down. I was afraid that the holiday indulgences would catch up to me in a negative way (even though by my calorie counting it shouldn’t have). Add to that the fact that my husband was out of town (which meant that I didn’t get to go to Zumba and that my evening workouts were not consistent) a good chunk of this past week. Yeah… I’m happy to lose 0.2 pounds. I lost weight!
I’ve maintained and lost (albeit in very small amounts) weight this holiday season. This is a first for me. I could be upset that I didn’t lose 1-2 pounds per week. But, in all honesty, I didn’t eat or workout in a manner that would have resulted in that kind of weight loss. I enjoyed the holidays. I had a few cookies. I ate out with my family when they came to visit the week after Christmas. I missed a few workouts.
Now, I’m ready to kick some butt (mine) this week. I am geared up to go to Zumba 3 days this week (Thank you hubby for watching the kiddo). I am ready to do all 6 days of Body Revolution Week 3. My son loves to ride in the stroller and get some fresh, crisp Iowa winter air (I know, it’s cold… but we bundle up!). So, I plan on using that to motivate me into going for a few 30 minute walk/jog sessions on my non-Zumba days.
I know what I am capable of. I’ve already lost 70 pounds before. Having my son doesn’t change that. In fact, I have more motivation than ever before. I know how to push myself and get results. Let’s do this!
