Howdy! How was your weekend? Mine was almost exactly like last weekend, and I have to say, I'm enjoying our weekends where it is all about exercise, togetherness and errands around town/house. Next weekend we will be in Spencer, so I relished this weekend and felt so, so good.
Before the weekend, though? Not so much. I wasn't sick or anything, I was just tired. Nothing was getting me motivated and all I wanted to do each day was curl up in bed with book. So much so, that I thought about calling in sick on Friday. However, I did not and I powered through to finish out the work week strong. This sluggish feeling did not help me with my activity level though ... see for youself:
Monday - 11,349 steps. 60 minute Zumba class. This class was with an instructor that I do not usually go to, but I had a lot of fun!
Tuesday - 10,377 steps. Rest day ... I honestly do not know how I made it to 10K steps.
Wednesday - 10,102 steps. This day I tried to run and I got about a mile away from home and was just not feeling it. Ended up home after one mile of running. Better than nothing, right?
Thursday - 12,170 steps. 60 minute Zumba class. I could barely make it through this class. My body was just saying no, no, no.
Friday - 11,115 steps. Rest day ... No idea how I made it to this many steps either. Apparently the Fitbit is helping me to move more in general!
Saturday - 24,507 steps. 60 minute Zumba class and 2 hour bike ride. This was my first long bike ride on the new bike. I'm definitely getting better at using the gears to improve my efficiency, now I just have to work on keeping up with the guys! I had only one mishap after leaving Mullet's and I could not get my foot back in the pedal with the strap on. It was probably the one beer I had with lunch (I'm a lightweight) but, it seriously took me about 8 tries to get my foot in there and get going. Talk about embarrasing!
Sunday - 10,122 steps. 45 minute bike ride (10 miles). This bike ride was painful. My bum is so sore I could barely sit down the entire ride!
Well, tomorrow starts the infamous Dietbet and I am officially nervous. After weighing in and sending my pictures, it just hit me. This is going to be hard! I have got the working out part down, but the eating part? I struggle. Hopefully this Dietbet (with money on the line!) is the kick in the pants I need!
Have you ever bet money on something like a diet? What's your go to method for dropping some lbs?
