Week 3

Whoo hoo! Week 3 is gone.  I am finding blogging about this journey has really helped me!

Weight loss this week was pretty pathetic-- losing *1* whole measly pound.  It was my "black week"..every woman who is reading my blog knows EXACTLY what I'm talking about.  I am also finding I am really struggling on weekends. My routine is busted and I don't get my water in as easily because we are on the go.  Water seems to be a huge part of this for me.

Even while I didn't see the scale jump this week, I  CAN tell you this week I started seeing a difference in how I feel.  I feel AMAZING.  I had even thought about putting the scale away for a while, because it is sort of a mental slam down when it doesn't move the way you THINK it should, WHEN it should,  but I haven't been that tough yet.

This week was the first week of Walk Kansas. Danny and I are really enjoying this challenge, even finding us walking in the rain, so we could get it done before the winter storm hit.  Danny even made a comment while we were walking about how much faster and easier I am walking.  Sometimes its those little things you discover that keep you going.

My quote that describes this week:  KEEP CALM and THINK BEFORE YOU EAT!

Good for you!! Keep up the great work!! I think soon you will find that you really miss the exercise when you don't get it. .but ALWAYS remember. .even when you are used to it. .it is still the easiest thing to cut back out of your day!! I've been exercising routinely 3-4 times for the last 4 years now. .and I STILL have to talk myself out of bed regularly!! Hang in there. .the pounds are sure to start falling off!

Weekends are tough. Totally different schedule makes it harder. I'm always behind on water on weekends too. Feeling better is awesome. Remember, muscle weighs more. I'll bet you're toning if you're walking faster and easier. Here's to some nice weather to get out more.

I agree with Melanie...making myself exercise is always hard. No matter how good it makes me feel. That just seems weird...if we feel so good why do our brains have such a hard time accepting it? I haven't used a scale for probably the last ten years {with the exception of when I was pregnant and then only until I reached my pre-pregnancy weight again}. My theory is as long as I feel good and don't feel like I need to know the number, then I am better off without it. I can tell when my pants start to get tight, LOL!
