Weigh In for week 8...

Well, here it is, week 8 of the GAG 2009 Challenge and I feel like I've made little to no progress... nobody's fault but my own. I keep slipping into the lack of motivation role when work gets/got stressful...when things at home are stressful, or I just plain feel warn out.

On the UP side... I have made it to the gym twice this week! I went and worked out Saturday after work... walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes then did about 30 minutes of strength training using one machine which was totally new to me... a back extension machine. I LOVED it. It felt so good on my back and also gave my legs quite the workout as I had it set at 110 lbs! I was feeling it a bit yesterday but nothing too unbearable.

Not only did I work out at the gym 2 x this week, I also did a new workout for me. Namaste Yoga. I wasn't really so sure I liked it or not. I actually prefer cardio or strength (with weights) training... but a few hours after doing the workout, I was really feeling it in my muscles. It was a good workout. Only thing I really didn't like... it's slow moving and it was on Fit TV so there was commercials and I had no clue what to do during the break. At least with cardio, I can continue with the same thing or walk in place, walk the stairs waiting for it to come back, etc... with the yoga, it's not so easy to hold a pose for the length of a commercial! LOL...

My eating wasn't too bad this week... though, my weight just seems to stick around the 144 mark each and every day. I guess it's better to maintain there than continue with an upward trend when I am not working out as I should...

Here's to another good week of working out. I need to find my schedule and start planning ahead so I can make sure I'm doing them and making time for them... :)

Today's Weight: 143.6
