Was it London Tipton on the Suite Life of Zack and Cody who used to say that?
Well, I'm going to say it, too, today. I lost four pounds this week. I was really, really hesitant to step on the scale this week, after two weeks of gaining. Plus, well, that bag of Terra Chips that I ate almost by myself yesterday at lunch, ... Oh, my I love those! This one was the Mediterranean flavor. But I love them all.
Anyway, I was very, very relieved to see the scale showing a lost instead of a further gain.
And I'm feeling a little more ambitious about my exercise, too, these days. That little minute ticker, ... yes, I know, I've said it before, ... but I love those things. Such a dumb little thing to get me motivated. But I like to see my little marker move past the tally marks each day.
Today I even ran for a few minutes. I've been trying to set the tread mill a little faster, so I did a five minute warm-up at 3 mph, and then walked five minutes at 3.5 mph. Then I bumped it up to 4 mph for a two minute run, and then back down to 3.5 mph for 3 minutes, then another 2 min run at 4.0. I finished up the last 3 minutes at 3.5, for a total of 20 minutes. Then I did some work on the Gazelle and CardioGlide, and then back to the treadmill.
It felt good to actually work up a sweat. I remember several years ago when I really had my heart into my workout. I'd work my hardest and be sweating the entire time. Now we ladies do a slower pace, and visit more, maybe. Which is also good and necessary. But I realized that I have to put more effort into my workouts.
