Weekly Stats Part Trois

Drum roll please . . .

This weeks stats -
Weight: 116
Body Fat: 20.5%

So, after two amazing back to back days of workouts last week I proceeded to take a three day vacation with my husband in which we did no more exercise than walking and pushing the stroller with baby.  Thus, the increase in body fat % this week.  The weight decrease can likely be explained by the fact that hubs, baby, and I went for a mile and a half jog and I finished up with some crunches and wimpy push-ups.  Of course I knew that I could use all the help I could get so I did not hydrate before the weigh in.  If I had I am sure my weight would have been at least the same as last week, if not more.

I keep saying it, but I really need to be more dedicated to my goal.  I have too many excuses and not enough success.

Some of my famous excuses are:

1.  Kaia's fussy/ready to eat again
2.  I'm exhausted
3.  It's too late/too early
4.  I was just leaving when the phone rang
5.  I don't want to work out during vacation/my husband's last week home/etc
6.  No, really, I am exhausted
7.  I deserve a little relaxation time
8.  My favorite show is on
9.  The house needs cleaned

Before I had Kaia I used to hate to do workouts shorter than 90 minutes or two a days.  I did a good mix of cardio and strength.  I almost always fit it in at least 5 days a week if not 6.  Now I am lucky to do 30 minutes a couple of times a week.  I know I write about this a lot.  Perhaps it's getting boring to hear but I must admit I have a tendency to obsess over things.  I am also a bit of a hypochondriac and a worrier at times.  In fact, working out is probably what kept me the most balanced and least prone to depression.

Alas, on to a new week.

You are kind of getting me feeling guilty about not working out. I haven't worked out in weeks and weeks and I'm starting to feel the effects. But, I'm sooo exhausted all the time!

I had my workouts planned for the week, and then BAM! My elliptical broke. I am so sad.

Congrats! Sounds like you really do have great motivation. I used to be very into health and fitness too, but I've had a hard time keeping with the workouts since I had my daughter... :/

At least you are thinking about it! I just don't even let my mind go there and then I blame the dryer for "shrinking" my clothes. =)

Jiye! You shouldn't feel guilty! That's what I'm saying! It's so hard I am always saying how exhausted I am too and so usually don't end up working out either. Stephanie, I'm so sorry to hear about your elliptical! I'm going to eventually have to get one of those. And Lynn, thanks for stopping by! I checked out your blog and if you're not working out I'd never guess it!

Oh, Elizabeth, I love it! That's what I'm going to start going with too :)
