Weigh-in report: Back down 0.6

Clever readers will notice that even though I was down slightly this week, I didn't drop back to my weight the week before last.  I had a bad attitude this week, to be honest. I was feeling very discouraged and having a hard time coming anywhere near sticking to my points, so I am lucky not to have gained again. Yesterday I didn't even count my points.

As I showed in my last picture post, the problem is not as much with what I'm eating as with how much. It's mostly healthy food, but it's more than I need to be eating. Knowing and doing are two different things sometimes.

I started a new class, a combo of indoor cycling and TRX. Total class time is 1 hour.  I went today and I really liked the instructor.  I think it's just what I need: A combination of some strength training and a serious cardio workout.

Unfortunately I will have to miss Thursday because of a work-related trip. While I'm traveling, I am still planning to count and make healthy choices.  I'm going to try to focus on the behavior goals and hope the scale takes care of itself.


  1. That class sounds fun!

    I read a really good tip (I thought) in Fitness today about how to deal with eating when you are not hungry (I am sharing because I overeat healthy stuff and think maybe the tip will help?). Anyway, when you are reaching for more food you are take three deep breaths and think (or say) "What is important to me?" I know that seems cheesy but I tried it today and liked it. Sometimes I need something simple like that to keep me on track.

    Hope it doesn't upset you that I shared that :)

  2. Don't be too hard on yourself (my weight chart looks very similar!). Sounds like a really good class.. would you say it's really hard? I'm going to Spin again tonight and am looking forward to that.

    Hope you have a great week!
