Fitness Friday: Did I Exercise All Week?

new-fitness-friday-button-copyIt’s that time of the week again .. Fitness Friday brought to you by Wii Mommies!

Oh yeah I exercised and yet I hopped on the scale hoping to see a simple pound or two of weight loss when I noticed the scale was tipping four pounds heavier. Now I can’t get discouraged because if age is only a number then that only  means weight is simply a number! Right? I have been known to gain a little bit of weight or stay the same yet go down in clothing size and whether it be just the boost of self confidence from knowing I am exercising daily or the actuality that I am losing some mid section weight, I feel thinner and I stand up straighter feeling that way!

One fact many don’t know about me, unless they have seen me in person or read it at one time or another is that I have a large chest, yes way too large for my body size. I blame this on nursing three children and never going back to my nice C cup that I miss a lot! So one area I really hope to lose weight on is my chest, it’s hard to stand up straight with such heaviness coming from my chest area. I am sure many with larger than normal chests can relate!

Day 5 – Rest Day

Day 6 -burned 119 calories in 17 minutes of working out on EA Sports Active.

Day 7 – Rest Day

Day 8 - completed 32 minutes of Wii Fit with my 7 year old in the evening hours as our “family time” together.

Day 8 – burned 129 calories in 20 minutes of working out on EA Sports Active.

Day 9 – Rest Day

Day 10 – completed 22 minutes of EA Sports Active burned 151 calories.

Day 11 – completed 16 minutes and burned 96 calories on EA Sports Active. Didn’t get a full workout, boys were not interested in this today.

So this week I am excited to continue on in my exercising efforts as I move towards reaching my goal size in six months, I have determined I want to lose 85lbs but if I don’t lose the actual “number” on the scale my feelings won’t get hurt if I simply fit in a size 10 again! By the way that four pounds I mentioned earlier came off by end of week, so not sure. I assume because I am working out I am changing fat for muscle and of course increased water consumption combined can certainly cause some weight fluctuations.

Are you succeeding in reaching your goals? I hope so, keep up the great work!

    It can be very disheartening seeing the scale moving in the wrong direct. I’m sure you’ll be soldering on to reach your targeted weight.
