Who said a lil competition was bad?
When I go to the gym I usually set a goal of burning at least 500 calories on 2 separate machines. Today was no different, I actually had reached well past the 600 calorie marker. As I was winding down on the elipt I witnessed a cute lil thing get on a nearby machine and she started moving about 6 times faster than me. I'm not sure what hit me but I felt like I needed to be moving faster....so I did. I started moving fast just like her (mind you I supposed to be finishing up). Low and behold I look and my lil 30 mins was just about up and I was so close to the 700th calorie. I started booking it then. I got a burst of energy just by seeing her man handle that machine. :)
Weight loss = $$$
I've only been on SP for 2 weeks now but my weight loss journey has been in effect for quite some time. However, I have started to see some serious changes in my body and the way my clothes fit since joining. For the past week I've struggled with looking slouchy because my pants have been too big. I dare not walk out of the house w/out belt. In so many ways, this is a good problem to have. However, I'm used to being polished and I'm having a hard time with this awkward baggy clothes stage (you would think I lost a bunch of weight :)). This process seems like it could be very expensive. With all of the success on SP, I'm sure someone can speak to this issue. Any thoughts?
Okay, I confess...I went over my calories tonight by almost 300 calories. It was the cheesecake! Funny thing is as I was eating it, I felt judged. Not only by myself but those around me. So what, I had a piece of cheese cake. Why does it feel so bad to eat sweets. It shouldn't be that way. For justification sake, I kept saying in the back of my head...you burned 700+ calories girl...it's alright. I don't know if it's ok to say things like that or avoid cheesecake at all costs. In the end, I went over my calories..and this is the first time this has happened since I started SP. Maybe that's why I judge myself so harshly. Nevertheless, I need to get this together because this weekend has a few more events that are centered around food. I want to make it through this weekend with the report of staying within my calories and not beating myself up for eating sweets, if it's in my calorie range.
