Hey gorgeous ones! Happy Wednesday...happy hump day...happy who cares because it's almost Friday! And Friday the 13th at that! I am definitely looking foward to this coming weekend. My body has been back at the office all week, but my mind is still in vacation mode, thinking of sleeping in, swimming, road-trips, familia, and good eats.
Yesterday was my WW weekly weigh-in day, and let's just say I was very surprised with the results. I know I know...the number on the scale definitely does NOT define me. I just can't help but be excited, because it brings me even closer to a huuuggee goal I set for myself earlier this year.
Yeaaahhhh buddy! I lost 3 lbs this week!! As you can see above, that puts me at a total of 95.6 lbs total loss since January. The reason I was so surprised is because I didn't exercise as much as I usually do. Thinking back, I may have only gone to 1 Zumba class, and went walking another night for only about 30 minutes. I normally rack up about 35-45 activity points for the week, which for all my non WW chicas out there, translates to more food points. This past week, I only managed to earn 15 activity points, and best believe I ate up every last point. I guess I need to take my own advice sometimes, and give my body a rest. It's not going to hurt me if I take a week off now and then, nor will I allow it to get me off track. Honestly though, I did feel it, in terms of the amout of energy I had. I felt like I was draggiinngg alll week long. Exercising really does give me that energy boost that I love, and not to mention, puts me in such a great mood. I leave my Zumba class with an 'I can take on the WORLD' attitude. I have been thinking about switching up my routine a bit, because I would love love LOVE to be able to run a marathon one day. Maybe start alternating between Zumba a few days, and walking/jogging 1-2 days, because chicas...I am nowhere near marathon material right now. One day....I will get there. Positive thinking is KEY.
My tracking wasn't all that great either, but it's okay, because I realize that I am going to have days/weeks like that. I am not perfect, and all I can do is continue to put my heart into reaching my goals. On a positive note, I had a few NSV's this week that made me feel
A-MAZING. NSV's are non-scale victories, or in other words, all those little things that happen on your journey that mean the world to you, for your own personal reasons.
Some of my NSV's for the past week included:
1. Being able to fit into clothing 2x smaller than what I was fitting into back in January.
(You have no idea how excited I was in the dressing room...I think shopping is my new BFF.)
2. Getting compliments from friends and family, and finally being able to just smile and say 'thank you'. I can't always do that. Some of my fellow WW members will understand why.
3. Giving myself a break, and letting my body rest for a few days. Yes...even though I kept thinking, 'I should be at Zumba' right about now', I did need the break. And going easy on yourself is not the easiest thing to do. At least for me it isn't.
Love love LOVE Nicki...and these quotes are perfect for today. It's been raining all week over here, and the clouds are starting to roll in as I'm typing. Better get back to work before I'm forced to leave. Office in a flood zone= no bueno.
Have a good one chicas!
Be blessed...and stay blessed!!
