Still not much movement on the scale. I’m quite okay with that (well at least for now). Sometimes I’ll get frustrated, but today I’m at peace. There has been a lot of family stress. To cope, last week I started my YMCA membership up again. I worked out 4 times in the previous week. I’m taking my own advice and just showing up in the mornings before beginning my workday. I don’t really have a plan when I arrive. I simply do cardio for 20 minutes, then randomly perform strengthening exercises (rotating upper body and lower body exercises each time). I’m trying NOT to focus on the bigger goal, but just taking it one day at a time.
I spoke with my coach in the previous week and she gave me some suggestions. I am noticing that having a coach isn’t quite enough to keep me motivated throughout the week. So this week I’ll be searching for my true motivators. Bare with me, I will be making some progress sooner or later.
Upcoming Weekly Goals:
- Track all meals in the electronic journal.
- Cook meals at home (except Saturday). Saturday will be a travel day.
- Read some literature about motivation and document what motivates me. See how those motivators can be incorporated into my weight loss journey.
Later in the week, I will be writing a blog post about “influencers.” Stay tuned.

My first day back at the YMCA, strolling the halls. I was happy to be back!
