W31, Day 1: Weigh Day

Yup, it's that day again:  weigh day.  It always seems to come around so quickly.  Today I weighed in at 207.0, putting me at -1.8.  This is good and would be great, if only I could get away from the 207's for good.    Months later, I'm still yo-yoing up and down.  Oh well, I've just got to keep on chugging along with my workouts and my food plan.

This week I find myself looking forward to next week when work resumes.  It's easy to work out during the summer when time is easily at hand, but it's a different story on a work day.  Directly after work, I'm so exhausted that I just want to come home and rest.  I swear I'm not being lazy or making excuses, it's just that I am really and truly wiped out.  In the evening after dinner, I have more energy but then I don't feel like going back out to the gym (this is where laziness does kick in).  The time I'm best for a workout is when I'm fresh and the most energized--in the morning.

It's really too bad that work starts so early.  I need to be out my door and in my car by 7:25.  My workout takes a full hour.  And of course, I need time to get ready, shower, have breakfast, etc.  I cringe as I write this because I'm SO not a morning person, but I think I must get up at 5:00 a.m. to do everything.  Yuck.  I'm not going to lie:  I'm not thrilled about getting up so early and I hope that I'll be able keep myself going.  I want to exercise Monday through Friday and then rest on the weekend.  That way I don't have to feel guilty about wanting to sleep in on Saturday and Sunday!  That's the plan to further my body strengthening and sleep deprivation.  I'm sure I'll be letting you readers know how it goes--wish me luck!

  1. Yep, 5 am is early, and I am actually a morning person. Hmmm. Good luck with the workout, and congrats on the loss!
