I have joined a gym and have a little guidance with my workouts too! Our new insurance has a deal where they reimburse us! Gotta love that! The childcare for the kids is awesome too at the gym, so they get a good work out!
I have been to the gym 5 times since last week. I am going again today to workout with my man! ;o)
I have been keeping my daily food intake again in Livestrong's My Plate and that is helping me too. I do get really snacky but haven't been drinking enough water and I think when I start doing better with water I'll be less hungry or snacky feeling.
I did lose another pound since last week, that feels great!
I learned so much last week about gaining lean muscle. I know I already knew that but the last few months I found myself eating what I wanted and then doing cleanses to lose a few pounds, but those stinkin' pounds always come back! So now I am focusing on burning cals going cardio 3 times a week and doing weights 3 times a week. One of those days I double up on doing cardio and weights. This way I can burn my calories (lose weight) and gain lean muscle mass which helps me to burn more calories when I am at rest and helps me to keep my fat at bay for the long term.
So the journey continues. I thought about re-starting this year, but my journey isn't starting over, it is just continuing. So it may take me 18 months or even 24 months, but I will get this weight off and off it will stay! So while my destination still remains I will still stay the course!
I know I can do this! I am ready to get back to work.
Off to the gym.
