Just Checking In

I was waiting to give a weight update because I was really hoping I’d be under 300 pounds this week. But…..I’m not………yet.

Before I tell you my latest weight, first I wanna tell you about the exercise I’ve been doing. As you know, I joined jazzercise a couple weeks ago. I didn’t think I’d go to class more than once a week, but I love it so much that I made time to go. I went to jazzercise class Saturday morning, Sunday morning, and Tuesday morning the past 2 weeks.

I’m really proud of myself for getting up early and going to workout on Tuesdays, which is the only day that I could sleep in because I don’t have to work until 10:15. But, I enjoy the exercise so I make myself get up early anyways.

Ok now back to my weight. My latest weight is 300.4. A half of a freaking pound is all I need to lose to hit my goal of being under 300! I have been stuck on 300.4 since Saturday (5 days). So when Tuesday came around, I was pumped to go to jazzercise because I thought it would for sure get me under 300. Unfortunately we had a substitute instructor who needed to be somewhere so we had a short class. But she also changed it up and we did toning and sculpting. NO cardio. I was totally bummed!

Needless to say, the next morning I weighed myself and I was at 303.6. Muscles may be nice and all, but I’ve got a goal to hit, so that toning and sculpting class annoyed me a little.

Today, I weighed in at 301.6. I guess the muscle mass is going down so we’ll see if I can get under 300 pounds this week.

One thing I learned about myself this week in relation to exercise is that if I don’t get up early and exercise in the morning, I’m probably not going to do it. Also I learned that I really need that push of going to a class and having someone show me or tell me what to do. If left alone to exercise, I never burn nearly as many calories as I do when I’m being instructed. The final thing I learned about myself in relation to exercise is that I enjoy it. I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, I LOVE jazzercise.

Well, I better go ahead and get to bed. I didn’t make the best choices today food-wise so I’m attempting to get up and go to the 5:30 AM jazzercise class tomorrow morning. Goodnight!
