In the swing of things (Jennifer)

I am back into the swing of things.  Vacation is over and I am back into my routine.  I went to my zumba class tonight.  Since the Total Sculpt weight class last Monday I have not been able to do much exercise.  But today I was back at it.  I have to say that my body was tired.  Taking a week off from exercise apparently is not a great thing for my body.  I was watching the clock and not that into it.  My feet hurt.  I could feel the extra weight on my body. especially my stomach as I was jumping around.  I must really be in tune with my body said the lady at my class when I told her that.  I got on the scale this morning and it wasnt pretty.  Up 3 lbs from last week.  Now, my "friend" arrived today and I am sure that is a big part of it since I can see the mark on my wrist where my watch sits.  I am bloated and feel tired.  I am not too discouraged though because I really do think that my body needed a little change from the 1200 or so calories a day I had been taking in, especially after coming off Medifast and taking in even less than that.  It feels good to be back into the swing of things.  Tomorrow morning I plan to go to the gym.  I dont think there are any classes I will take but I will get my cardio in along with some upper body training and then a visit to the sauna.  So...the bottom line is:  I took a vacation, I enjoyed myself, I lived(ate more than usual), I learned(felt yuck), and now I am happily back on track.

Trish-congrats on  your choice to get the rest of the weight off.  I am so proud and happy for you.  I am happy that you are so excited about it!

Good for you jumping in with the exercise. I looked back over my journal and the biggest weight loss I have had (after the initial week loss) was when I exercised every day. I've sadly got out of the habit and need to get back again. You're doing good and on the right track.

Great attitude! I think you are doing great and getting back on track isn' always easy and sometimes sore, but you are doing it! I hope to have a similar post next week. :)
