Thirty third Weekly Weight Update!

Okay I'm a little bummed out with weigh in today. I started workingout again this past week. It was over a month ago that I did some serious workout. So I've been sore this week, but I noticed that on Tuesday the scale jumped over 2lbs. Since then the scale hasn't budged. I've been eating much less than I have been, and eating much better and healthier.

It's a little discouraging when you're doing good and the scale goes up like that. I can understand if I was pounding down Big Macs all day and food sinning, but I haven't I hope it's the working out and eating healthier that caused my body to get confused or something, and hopefully it'll wake up soon and start losing weight again >_<

+2.2 lbs (+1kg)

Food Log (23 May 2012)

Feeling sore today from my workouts. I decided to give my body a small break, but I did go on a walk . I also did a little bit of painting today, which will most likely make my arms sore tomorrow. Working on the house is a never ending task, but it always feels wonderful having new paint or new wallpaper . Today's food was leftover so it wasn't special, but I do love leftovers, as it means I didn't have to cook.

Oat porridge with blackberries, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, turmeric, agave syrup and milk.

Lunch: Teriyaki chicken, huge salad, and oats/barley/rice mix.

Snack: Dark choco biscuit

Dinner: Teriyaki chicken, huge salad, and oats/barley/rice mix.

Exercise: 28 minutes walk.

Snack: A few naughties of choco chip cookies

Lunch: Very small portion of pytt i panna (Swedish potato hash thing), egg, and a huge salad.

The Power of Yoga!

Arthur Boorman's inpirational video

Last week Esther Ekhart shared a video on facebook.  It was amazing and inspirational.  The video speaks for itself.  The power of yoga is amazing!  This is why I love yoga so much, just a small step eventually leads to something greater.  The only measuring stick is yourself, and that's the beauty of yoga.  It gives you strength and courage to keep pushing on and keep moving forward.

I haven't accomplished what this man has.  But I've come a long way from what I was last summer.  I'm much stronger and healthier, and it's thanks to yoga that I can do as much as I can now.     

Caught A Cold!

I ended up catching a cold, and it's been very hard to try to stay focused on dieting. I finally had enough strength to do yoga today, but I did sleep for twelve hours last night. I've gone through at least two and half boxes of tissues in a few days.

Almost hard to believe that tonight will be two weeks since I've been back, but it feels so much longer, as I've had jetlag, and now a cold .

Hopefully when I get better I can kick in full gear again.

Pushups, crunches, dips and 35 minutes yoga.

Bought A New Scale!

Today I went to out to the city to find a scale. Luckly, the scale I've been wanting for awhile was finally in stock. I felt like it was Xmas seeing a pile of the scales in stock. Now the scale addiction will begin again!

Thursday, May 3, 2012

There won't be a weigh in tomorrow, as my scale is offically past it's expiration date. I forgot my scale here at home was in bad shape until I tried using it recently. Now it reads 0, error, or 300 lbs (I think that is the max on the scale). I know I don't weigh any of those three numbers that it keeps showing.

I tried looking for a scale locally yesterday, but wasn't able to find one. Hopefully this weekend I can drive out to the city to pick one up. So until I find my scale, it will be weight will be a bit of a mystery.

On a good note, I finally slept through a whole night last night . That's the first time in a week. I pushed myself really hard yesterday to stay up off of 3 hours of sleep. The not so good thing is that I'm catching a cold I'm going to take it a little easy today, and hope that this cold will go away.
