Week 11 Weigh-in: Planning

It is two weeks and two days today that I had been planning and journaling. In these few weeks I can call myself a planner, woohoo!

Planning also called forethought "is the process of thinking about and organizing the activities required to achieve a desired goal". I love this definition because of the these words 'thinking' 'organizing' and 'goal', since that's what I have been doing, although not the deep kind of thinking but the just-do-it type. I mean all I do each night is just know what my workout plan for tomorrow is and I get everything ready including Plans A, B and everything to Z. I wake up each day not planning to finish the whole exercise in my journal but as much as I am satisfied with while there is still time.

I write the meal plan for the next day including my snacks in my journal and for the past 16 days, it's been worth it.

Every night I end the day completing my workout or writing how the day had been food-wise and exercise-wise, I write down my thoughts and judgments of the day plus every overeating and under-eating is taken note of. I forgive my errors and look forward towards the goals ahead. I make sure to write in my journal every night so that any "tomorrow" is not haphazardly lived and trust me it is working for me.

Plyometrics

Plyometrics also called "Jump Training" is a type of exercise that involves a quick and explosive movement.

I personally love strength training than cardio workouts, I just dislike that chest thumping that happens after the cardio exercises. But I am at ease with plyometrics and I love the fact that more energy is burned because it high impact exercise at a short time frame.

This week has seen me with a lot of this jumping around and I feel the endorphin rush after each session. I am posting this so that you can give this a try sometimes, below are my favorites:

Week 10 Weigh-in: NSV



I weighed in this morning at 170.2lbs and that is a gain of 0.6lbs this week. I did well because I had NSVs . I feel so proud of this achievements and I know that the scale will soon move towards the right direction. 

NSV means Non-Scale Victory, it is very important for everyone on a weight loss journey to imbibe this as a culture if they want to ever make a headway. It is often said that the scale nor the numbers on it does not determine what success you have. I agree with this and I think it is fact even though it is easier to feel bad and misbehave after any weigh in that shows an unfavourable number.

Week 9 Weigh in: 169.6lbs

It had been great completing this week with daily exercising and cautious eating. My feelings was mixed on what the result would be because I am just days past TOM,  the weight is always maintained at this time but I did try my best to take healthy steps towards a weight loss this week. Low numbers on the scale doesn't come by accident, it comes through a conscious and consistent effort. I weighed in at 169.6lbs this morning (0.8lbs loss)

I was determined to do something positive this week and I am grateful that lines were falling to me in pleasant places. One of the most important things that happened was my journal, it became a bestie this week and I wrote in it everyday. I planned and tracked my workout, planned and tracked my food, I wrote down my feelings including reasons for my failures and ways out.
