So I got on the scale this morning....whatever possessed me to do this, I have NO idea and I'm really sorry I did. It showed that I was up 1.3 lbs!! YIKES!! What is THAT about? I didn't do so great on the weekend but I didn't really think I did that bad either. Point blank, I shouldn't have gotten on that damn thing until Friday. Why do I put myself through that? I hope I'm not hitting another plateau....I'm nervous now. It might be my scale too...that thing is never really sure what is going on. Well I'll just keep my fingers crossed for Friday, I still have 2 workouts before Friday and I also have 2 lunchtime power walks to get in before official weigh in. Never again am I getting on the thing unless it's Friday morning official weigh in.
I also wanted to say THANK YOU for all of you that come on my little blog here and leave inspiring comments for me! It's so awesome to have this much support. There are days when I contemplate BRIEFLY throwing in the towel but the support keeps me in the game.
I'm also considering doing Core for a few weeks and trying it out. I'm not really sure exactly what Core is but I've heard from many people that when they hit a plateau on Flex, they switch to Core. I have been thinking about it and really, I have only lost about 6 lbs since Christmas and before that I was on a major plateau for like 2 months! I know I have been weight training too and I have noticed that my body if starting to tone up but I really just want to get another 10 lbs off before the July hits (and before I jump into that BIKINI!) So ANY advice on Core would be SOO appreciated!!! May as well give it a try ...maybe. From what I understand, you can eat whatever you want but you have to stick within the list of core foods? Am I close here?
So I am really going to try to pre-plan this weekend so it doesn't get out of hand . We are hosting Easter dinner on Sunday and my sister in law is bringing down her TO DIE FOR, IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST HOMEMADE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CAKE!! So I am allowing my self to have my usually Friday night homemade pizza, and 1 piece of chocolate cake. It actually works out good that we are making dinner as I will be able to cook something pretty healthy. I'm not sure what though...any suggestions?
