As I get closer to my goal weight, the weight loss is much slower, which also sometimes makes me feel like I am not doing as good as I was. You get "little whispers" creeping in telling you, "You are Failing" or "You are slipping" (Not literal whispers hehe no worries) It is kind of frustrating, but I DO know, and I DO realize that weight can't keep dropping off at a staggering rate because that would be unhealthy! The closer you do get to your ideal weight, it is not as easy to lose, it takes more work! I also feel a lot more muscle and can see it too, and muscle weighs more than fat so that is a good thing! Right? :)
But still, we are always striving for perfection!
I just have to remember!...A few short months ago, I would have done anything to have the body I have now, so I am not gonna let this little
Plateau stop me and bring me down!
I have already succeeded in ways I felt were
impossible when I started this journey! I am writing it here so I can move forward and get past the next step...because "Dreams not written down are just Wishes" and I believe this.
For the past few days I have felt like everything was going down, and it was all going to come back because I had a few goodies...but I worked way too hard and still do for it to all come back. So I have to get
those ideas out of my head...and move forward. I am definitely not going to let those thoughts ruin everything for the sake of a few "down days" I am proud of what I have accomplished and looking back on when I started....I didn't think I could get "HERE" annnnd... "Here I am!"
Today I woke up at 7:45am on a rainy Saturday morning...everyone else was asleep, and I hopped on down to the gym even though my bed was so warm and cozy! I had a "Major Sweaty" 1Hour BodyStep Class with Mariette & Stacy teaching, they are really high energy and I love their classes! Then, followed that with a gruelling 1Hour BodyPump with Romain, and I challenged myself this time by adding more weights than usual, and in turn I felt I got more of a workout, and burned more calories than I usually do in the class! Right before the class started... A "Little Ray of Sunshine" with her Big Smile walked in! That would be Elly, and she set her bench up next to mine :D What a great morning! What a great way to start the day!
SATURDAY MORNING WORKOUT:
1Hour BodyStep (509 Calories)
1Hour BodyPump (393 Calories)

The quote at the top of the page is JUST what I needed today! We can do it girls!
Well off to enjoy the day...have to put the baby for his nap so I can clean the house a little. I might even try to make it back tonight for BodyJam! One of my new favorite classes! I already had my 2Hours of exercise today, so I won't push it if my hubby wants to do some other things today. Sometimes we have to give a little to get a little and I already took mine today, so I can't have it my way all the time :) Have to be happy with what I have!
