Thoughts On The First Week I Didn't Constantly Weight Myself :-)

I've done well this week.  I have no idea if I met my double-digit goal, but I really don't care.  I know that I have made improvements this week, and I've kept it strong.  Whatever the scale says, I know I've had a good week.  I stayed focused, even after the occasional small mistake.  It's the getting back up that I have always been so bad at, and I did it every time this week.  There was no giving up.  So whatever the scale says, I'm happy right now.

I did cardio 4 times this week.  Not bad, right?  But not super.  But I needed to know that I could be consistent, so I did err on the side of ease when in doubt a couple times.  But I was consistent, and I also did a little bit of weight lifting 2 days this week.  That's 6 days that involved movement, but to be honest the weight lifting days were really not that challenging.  I gotta say, if there was one thing this week I flaked on, it was weight lifting.  I think I would benefit from having a workout plan for the week ahead, so here's what I've come up with:

Sunday: Billy Blanks Bootcamp video
Monday: Shakespeare, and then Jillian's Burn Fat Boost Metabolism video
Tuesday: Shakespeare Stairs (count)*, and then Shakespeare
Wednesday: Shakespeare, and then Biggest Loser video Level 1
Thursday: Shakespeare (time)**
Friday: Shakespeare, and then Jillian's 30 Day Shred video Level 1
Saturday: 1 Mile (time), and then Walk 1 mile
*(count) means see how many I can do
**(time) means see how fast I can do it

So yeah...that's at least a couple notches harder than I pushed myself this week, but I really think I can do it.  It will be hard, and I plan on keeping it at that level for at least 3 weeks, but...I totally think I can do it. 

Next stop...the weigh in!

Good luck to you all,
