Well no excitement this week. I am only down .2 lbs not exactly what I was hoping for. I know I should be happy I have lost 9 pounds since Shrinkvivor began but I feel like I put in a lot of work this past week and expected to see more like a 2 lb loss and not .2!
I will try not to let it get me down as I gear up for my next week. I just plan to keep doing what I am doing.
This week the challenge was miles and I managed to log in 24 miles between my running and elliptical machine workouts. I was happy with that. I drank 120 ounces of water each and every day. I did not eat any fast food. I did get in 5-6 servings of vegetables a day. I stayed well within my points range and only ate 15 of my 35 flex points. I think maybe I needed to use up more of them and will try to next week.
I am preparing to run another 5k on Saturday so that will be fun and I am looking forward to it!
During weight loss it is important to not always focus on the numbers on the scale. I know in my head this is true. I try to remind myself of it but still you cannot help but feel a little disappointment when you do not receive the results you were expecting. I am just telling myself that this means next week I will rock the weigh in and be down no matter what! I just hope I get to stick around in Shrinkvivor for a little while longer! I love my tribe :)
