As you guys know WIW hasn’t been easy for me, at times it has been discouraging, baffling and infuriating I have had a mixed bag of emotions during this process. I am resolved to keep it moving and to remain positive. I couldn’t do as much as I wanted to  last week because I was experiencing awful back spams, so I only ran once last week and that was a struggle.  I am feeling a lot better after resting my back. I ran/walk 3 miles yesterday  it wasn’t easy but I got it done. Michael and I tried P90X today (you know how you imagine something being far worse than it actually is)?  The P90X workout not easy by no means but not impossible either. Since I am off this week for Easter Break , which gives me the time to work out more and really assess what workouts appeal to me when I am not running.

This week I feel encouraged and I am ready to continue this challenge. My husband has been super supportive and also providing tough love when I needed it, by cheering me on and not allowing me to have a pity party.  He shared a video with me about frustration when your scale isn’t moving although you’re working out and eating right, which was a huge help, and it actually mirrored some of your comments about muscle weighing more than fat, clothes fitting looser even when the scale isn’t moving , etc.

I have considered maybe only doing the weigh in’s monthly but I like the accountability of weekly. What do you guys think? How are you doing with your journey and achieving your fitness/weight loss goals? Lost 2 ounces since last week. It’s not what I was hoping for but I will take it! (for now)
