Now, to my weekly weigh in report.
This week's stats:
This week's loss = - .6
Total loss = - 31 lbs
I still have trouble not being disappointed with small losses. I know, I know, how many times do I emphasize that a loss is a loss? I had a bigger loss (for me anyway) last week so I can't be too greedy. I am just happy that I am continuing to go in the right direction!
Reflecting on the week, I did well in many areas. I exercised on my elliptical 4 nights this week. The other nights I was out all day, but did make it a point to go for a walk during my lunch break on those days. Also, I ate in a lot more! That was the main thing I committed to this past week to change, limiting my eating out at restaurants. I did feel like it helped, even if I only lost .6.
What I need to work on this week is definitely my sleeping pattern. I need to make sure I am getting enough hours of sleep. I've always been a night person and really need to improve in this area. The problem comes to weekends where I throw everything off by staying up late and sleeping in. Also, I think I need to increase my activity. Now that I'm getting in the habit of doing my elliptical on a regular basis, I need to kick up the intensity I think.
With that, I'm open to more workout songs to add to my playlist. I recently downloaded the "Imagine Dragons" album and I really like it. Actually this song has been stuck in my head. I was working out to it earlier. I'm a dork, I know lol:
Maybe not a traditional workout song, but it is stuck in my head!
