Extreme makeover: me edition - week 3 update

Well, it's weigh in day and I've never been more scared. Well, I have been, just not recently :)

Soooo, it's been Spring Break which means more eating and hanging with the family than usual. By more eating I really mean more "fun" food eating. So even though I gained last week and I was really good for most of this week...I'm going with my weight from yesterday. This means I'm back to where I started. That means a little weight loss and still saying that I broke my plateau.

I did do all my workouts except for 2 days due to back injury. Thanks for all your comments. The warm bath's helped and so did my Uncle Ben...my Uncle Bengay, that is.

So I hope everyone is having a good week!

To address Amber's question of How do I reward myself? I really don't. I actually try to reward myself throughout the whole process. If I feel I've been really good on workouts, I'll take a day off and not feel so bad. If I feel I've been really good with the eating, I let myself have a "cheat" meal and not worry about it. I try and not put too much pressure on myself, so I don't feel like a failure if something comes along and I don't meet a specific goal. So I guess what I'm saying is I don't give rewards to myself, 'cause I don't make real achievements ;) Hahaha.

Can't wait to see how everyone is doing!!

YAY, Lisa! This sounds like a mighty good week to me :) Through injury, spring break, fun foods, you still managed to lose, I love it! Congrats, and here's to another awesome week!

Hugs,
Liz

I agree with Liz. I think you're doing great for all of the above. Especially the injured back. No fun! It's great to have such comforting uncles though. ;)

Keep it up! {WE} can do it!! :)

Hi Lisa!

Thanks for your nice comments! Good job on doing your workouts even with a back injury - ouch! You are very hard core!

Hi Lisa, thanks for your encouraging words at my blog! It's so nice to hear from people who are all trying to accomplish the same goal, rather than my 'real world' friends who don't want to hear about it :-) I'm with you on the 'cheat' meal, I do that once a week (seemed to work better for me when I was 10 years younger!)

Have a great week!

I think you are on to something with the cheat *meal* vs. a cheat *day!

Keep up the good work!

I try not to put too much pressure on myself, but it never seems to work! I get lazy then I beat myself up about it.... lol HEy a little is better than none! Keep it up!!!

I love that you're not putting a lot of pressure one yourself! :)I think that may be the secret!

That's great Lisa! Especially since you were hurt for some of the week.

I like your reward system. I do all of those same things for the same reasons but never looked at it that way. Hmmm. Thanks for the insight!

Great attitude about not putting too much pressure on yourself. Smart girl. :-)

Good luck this week!

Much love from NJ,
Sue
