Determined to lose 9 pounds

Today is Day 3 of getting back to my healthy lifestyle.

I started counting points again with Weight Watchers on Monday. I am not attending meetings (probably should) or doing anything online. My years with WW gave me many of the tools I need to continue on my own.

I am trying to mix up my workouts–not so spin focused (tho. that usually means I can eat more!). Monday there were no classes at the gym (that is normally my noon spin class day) so I did a little time on the treadmill and then did a self-taught spin class on the bike. Tuesday was yoga. And today was Zumba. Tomorrow will either be spin or kickboxing.

I am determined this time to get back to my goal weight. I have to stop making excuses and lose that 9 pounds.

    Keep up the good work! Does your gym have either Metabolic Effect or Body Pump. Both are excellent classes (although focused differently on different things.) If they do, don’t be intimidated by the Body Pump class. It is frankly the best weight class within a cardio framework that I have ever seen.

    You are doing the RIGHT thing by mixing it up. The body adjusts very quickly. Also when on a cross trainer or a treadmill it is easy to mix things up by going hard the slow, hard then slow … this is actually more effective for your heart than just “going as hard as you can for as long as you can”.

    Keep up the good work.
