Weigh in #5

Ay yi yi I've been horrible at updating lately! Today was my WI day and I was down 1.2 lbs. Not great but it put me under the 250 mark, which is what I'm the most pleased about. I've gotten into the really bad habit of not tracking over the weekend and I know that's why my loss is not as high as I would have liked. I also only managed 18 APs last week. That's disapointing to me but as I've started my new job, I'm still trying to figure out when I can get to the gym. I thought that since my office is across the street from the Y that scooting over there on my lunch break would be a cinch. But alas, we really get no lunch break. I mean, I'm sure I could run out and say I'll be back in an hour but I would feel really bad doing that as I already have to leave early every day to pick up my kids. The office hours are 9-6 but I leave every day at 4:45 in order to pick up the kids by 5. I drop them off at the babysitters at 8:45 so there's really no option of going to the gym before work either. So, there the Y sits (I can see it out my window when I sit at my desk), taunting me... making me feel guilty for not somehow getting over there.... and worse yet, today is the first official day of the fitness challenge thingy that I signed up for there and we're supposed to work out 4 days a week. UGH. Really my only option is to muster up some energy and head over there after I get the kids to bed. Quite honestly though, by 8pm tonight I was ready for bed, not ready for a workout. What to do... what to do....

Well done on the loss! You may have to work out at home... Do an exercise DVD, or something.

Well done on the loss! Really looks like you're hemmed in on the exercise times available. I'd go with the home workout, too!

exercise is always hard for me because of my schedule too. the best advice I have gotten is just to do little things..like taking the stairs or parking your car further, etc. thats better than nothing until you can figure out your schedule and how exercise can fit in.

Congrats on your loss! Over a pound - that's great.

I've been working out at home more than the gym these days and it's not bad at all. If you don't like DVD's you can walk (and maybe work your way up to run). With strength, the weight of your body and some really basic equipment (dumbells, balance ball) can take you a long way.

It's a challenge, I know. You'll figure it out, I have confidence.

Hang in there, Holly! You'll come up with a way that works best for you to fit in exercise.

And celebrate that one+ pound you lost this week. Bravo to you!
