I know I've been trying to work out/do yoga/take fitness classes/go jogging at least 3-4 days a week. Plus blog 2x a week, stay on top of my game at work, and sleep at least 8 hours of sleep a night. Not to mention keeping up with the Mister and his all over the place schedule. It's hard when I work 9-5, and he works nights. I end up staying up late, waiting for him to get home. Let's just say it's not working out. I'm not getting the sleep I need, I'm crashing during the day, and making myself sick (although that's the ever changing weather getting to me.) So last week I gave up on fitness things. Gave the diet a brief break. I was sick and exhausted. Not going to lie, I did cave into some cravings (damn you marshmallow pies!) but I haven't been too bad. It's been a nice change of pace. But I know I can't throw all that hard work away. I lost 6 lbs since the beginning of April! It may not seem like a lot, but its a personal achievement for me. While my goal is to lose about 20 more lbs, it's not necessarily about numbers - whether it be pounds, inches or size. I more want to be healthy and fit. Feel comfortable with myself and not out of breath from running up the stairs to catch my bus/train.
I don't even want to go there with the weight that I supposedly need to lose. According to my Wii Fit Plus and the Wellness Program at my job, I need to lose a little over 40 lbs to be "healthy" according to the BMI scale. Yep. My BMI number is in the "obese" range. Dropping 40 lbs would put me at a "normal" BMI. I'll be going more into details about this in a future post because it does piss me off to no end. I know I'm not healthy, that I could shed a few pounds and tone up. But placing me in the obese category based on a formula that doesn't account for body type, muscle vs fat, male vs female. It's insane. The 40 lbs they want me to lose would make me look about as real as Barbie. I got hips, breasts, thighs. I'm not trying to look like a stick... Ugh. I'm done. There will be a rant post about this very soon.
I have jury duty this week, so I'm sure I won't be posting until that's over. Sorry for the mini rant above. I will reveal all my numbers too, so we'll get to know each other very well. LOL
til the next time,
PS: I didn't forget about the giveaway. Just really lazy right now. Soon though! :)
