Breaking a plateau with enough sleep...amazing!!

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

I didn't think I would ever break this plateau I was coasting on...but after a good night of sleep...8.5 hours...I am down 4 pounds!! I am so glad I didn't give up!! I could have easily chucked the whole thing and just ate what I wanted for the last 2 weeks. It definitely would have made it worse...but I stuck with it!! I am now below 220 pounds and so thankful for all the support I have gotten during this difficult and frustrating time!!

I went to water aerobics for 40 minutes yesterday and did yoga for 1 hour! Wow! What a day! Not sure I could do that everyday...but it might be an option for Tuesdays...if I am up early...go swim and then at 5:30 pm go and do yoga. It was difficult...I am not able to do all the poses, but I tried hard and I think I benefited from it! emoticon

Now a question...can I track Yoga on the Fitness Tracker?? I couldn't find it and I tried to use the help button, but it didn't give me an answer. Anyone out there with help, it will be greatly appreciated!! Kayli...do you know?? emoticon

It looks like a nice day out. Sunny and I don't mind warm or even hot now that I have air conditioning. This has definitely been the most pleasant of the last 3 summers!! emoticon

I have to apologize for the skimpy blog yesterday...I was getting a bit down from not losing and I was really tired last night!! I was in bed by 9 pm. emoticon

I hope everyone has an excellent day!! I am doing water aerobics and helping a friend pack some things from her husband that she left...he was abusive to her and her son, very controlling...and had a girlfriend on the side. I am glad she left him!! I know starting over is hard...but sometimes it is the best choice!! I just hope she sticks to it and doesn't go back!! Not trying to judge the guy...just giving you the facts!! It could happen with a woman, too!! So not being sexist!

Have a good day and remember...it is what you make it, so make it great!!

    As for the yoga thing, I searched for it an all I could find was Power Yoga. You could probably just track it as that and just be aware that the calorie burn will probably be off. Or you could just google how many calories yoga burns in 1 hr and manually enter it. (I googled it and it says anywhere from 175 to 630 per hour depending on yoga type. I would go with somewhere around 200). Personally, I always enter my fitness minutes in the Quick Track Fitness thing because I'm usually doing a workout video (like Turbo Jam) and I doubt it's listed in SP's cardio exercises. I'm not really tracking how many calories I burn either, so the Quick Track works well for me.

    Hope that helps!!! Have a great day and enjoy your weight loss!! You rock!!
