Monday's weigh-in was a bit of a surprise. I was down six pounds!
I don't really think I lost six pounds over the course of one week, actually. So many things go into a weigh-in: food in your stomach, water retention, how recently you've been to the bathroom . . . and I think my weigh-in last week was a little high to be honest. I knew I had lost but the scale wasn't cooperating and showed a loss of 1/5 of a pound. So this week the numbers caught up to me - happy day!
My Weight Watchers leader, Karen, has created a challenge for us. She has paired us up with partners and challenged us to keep each other honest and motivated. I promised my partner I would work out this week - a hefty promise to keep since I really dislike exercise in general.
But we have a local gym, Planet Fitness, that stays open 24 hours during the week and that works with my schedule. They have every machine you can imagine, a super friendly staff, and a price that I can live with. (The cheap membership is just $10 a month!) They also have a half-hour circuit (my favorite!) with weight machines of all different types and aerobic stations.
So I donned my grey sweatpants last night and headed out to keep my promise to work out. Wow! It was good but today I'm feeling muscles that I didn't even know I had.
Now the trick is to stay motivated enough to do it again.
Onward and downward!
Next time you'll see less of me!
