Recently, I wrote about a nice Saturday bike ride where I had enjoyed some renewed strength climbing hills, increasing speed, etc. In the comments, Massive Marcus wrote that he could hear the "Rocky" theme song playing somewhere. Yes, the song can be cheesy, but it does stir up that same feeling in all of us, right? Nice one, MM.
It's time for me to press "play" on that song again. Yes, I lost weight last week...1 pound. I am grateful for that loss and I know that I am becoming more healthy (and smarter about my choices). But I was on quite a roll there for awhile (losing 2-4 pounds per week) and that has slowed dramatically.
So, I am going to be working hard to force that number downward. I have been exercising daily with cardio (ranging from 30 min of fast walking, to jogging to cycling) and have also added in some work with weights to get ready for the GUN SHOW (somebody give me a high-5! Up Top! Don't leave me hangin' now...anyone?!?).
I realized that it was finally time to get serious about my workout routine when the term "Last Chance Workout" would come to my mind as I headed to the bathroom, right before my weigh-in on Monday morning. (Sorry if that's crude, but fans of The Biggest Loser might get that one.)
Also, I've decided that I'm not going to check the scale until Mondays. Before this week, I was weighing every day for the past few weeks and it's driving me crazy. So, we'll see how I do on Monday morning.
What are your exercise goals for this coming week?
