weigh in last week because of my daughter’s music concert so it’s been 2 weeks
since my last official weigh in. Even though within the past 14 days I had 6
star minuses, 5 stars, 1 smiley face, 1 sad face and 9 workouts, I just wasn’t
“feeling it”. Two weeks between weighing in is just too long. However… I was down
another 2.8 for a grand total of 35.2 pounds in just 3 months!
accountability leader asked why I have star minuses. A star minus is when I
don’t get to my calorie range to lose weight. I typically am around a hundred
calories (or less) short of meeting the bottom number of my star range. I tend
to have many calories left at the end of the day when it’s dinnertime, but get
filled up quickly. Then I forget to eat something before I go to bed, thus
resulting in a star minus. My strategy to help this issue is to consume more
calories at breakfast, so I don’t have quite so many to eat at the end of the
Brain is back to the beginning of its cycle. Today was an introduction of what
is going to happen over the next several weeks. Marty has given each of us a
little note card sized box. This is our “Toolbox”. We must fill our toolboxes
with tools that help shape our thinking.
WOD (Workout of the Day)
I work out
with a group of teachers on Wednesdays and Fridays after school. Below is one
of the workouts that we did:
Double Unders (or 150 single jumps)
Wall Ball Shots
Knees to Elbows
Steps of Walking Lunge
50 Box Jumps
This work out was tough,
however it didn’t take me nearly as long as I anticipated. And once it was
over, boy I felt great!
Marty starts every Train Your Brain
session off with us sharing our positives. To be successful in weight loss (or
anything for that matter) one thing we MUST
keep in our toolbox and refer to often is positive thinking. When we are faced
with temptations we forget the positives. Fight back with POSITIVE THINKING!
