My weight stagnated the past 2 weeks. I am not sure if it is my eating habits (completely possible), the fact that exercise is not a priority to me right now (likely cause) or the fact that I may just be at my lowest healthy weight for my current daily eating habits.
I'd really, really, really like to lose another 5 pounds. Partly because my jeans a just a tid bit too tight. Partly because I was able to get 5 pounds lower 2 years ago. And partly because I just want to (not the best reason I know).
That means something needs to change. So I am making myself a priority and making time to exercise. Obviously the 40 crunches a night I am making myself do are not going to help me lost 5 more pounds. Those are to help tone and possibly tighten my belly. It has been stretched out a few times in the past 8 years and could use some help. But I need to stop making exercise a four letter word. There really is no excuse on why I can not find 30 minutes 3 or 4 times a week to walk, do yoga, pilates or some other form of exercise. If I turned off my kindle a few times a day the time would appear I am sure. Which leads me to my goal for this week: add 30-40 minutes of exercise in 3 or 4 times this week. Three would be the minimum acceptable. Four or more is my goal.
If I add exercise and the scale doesn't move then I can at least know that I am healthier. I may not way less, which would be nice. But I am making healthier choices which is better than simply being thin.
My current goal list is:
#1. 40 crunches a day.
#2. Exercise 30-40 minutes 3 or 4 times a week.
Last week for 5 out of 7 nights I was able to do my crunches. It's small, but it is a start.
