I restarted my weight loss journey this week. It has been a long week, but a good one. This week I learned a lot about myself and my weight loss. I turned that into action and I have to say I’m pretty happy with the results. Before I get to my weight this week I want to share a bit about what I have done this week.
Monday I got home ready to do my Zumba workout. I got my workout gear on and turned on my Wii only to realize that in the two weeks I had not been working out I also had not charged my remote. Unfortunately I only have one so I couldn’t workout on my Wii. I was sad and a little pissed at myself, but I decided to check out Amazon to see what videos I could find to stream. I found a kickboxing one and started that, but I made it though five minutes before I felt I was going to die, it was too much.
Then just before I was ready to give up I found a 30 day Weight Loss Yoga Challenge. I thought well, at least it’s something, after the second video I was hooked, the first is really just an introduction to the series and I do recommend you watch it. The series is not just about Yoga, but eating well and mental health too.
So this week instead of doing my Zumba I have been doing yoga. Though one day I did do 20 minutes of Zumba, because I had the energy to do it! I was very excited about that. I haven’t had that much energy in a long time.
So I have decided to continue this Yoga challenge and complete the 30 days. After the 30 days I may also do it again after I’m done, because there are many moves I can’t do well or at all right now. I’m fat, I can’t bend like that, yet.
The other nice thing about doing Yoga and not my Zumba is that I am not as hungry. I don’t eat as much and I think that is a huge reason I feel better and still lost weight. The other nice thing is not eating as much also is helping my pocketbook. Something I need right now as my work was closed most of the last two weeks. We reopened this Monday, but these paychecks are not pretty.
I really am happy with my weight loss. I know eventually I will have to kick it up a bit, but I think I have a bit before I need to worry about that.
