Normally my Wednesday is very busy: teaching labs all morning, prepping labs for the next week, attending lecture, farmer's market day (yay!). I usually skip the gym on Wednesdays (using it as my rest day). Then we have our weekly meet-up with friends for food and TV!
But because of Spring Break, I don't have labs this Wednesday (another yay!), and told myself yesterday that I would use this day off to get to the gym.
I am not honoring that promise, yikes! I am SORE. My core is sore. My shoulders are sore. I cannot fathom working out right now. I plan to walk a lot today (long walk of the dog, also walking 2 miles to the TV night) and I think that will have to suffice.
I weighed in today. 135.4. So holding steady right between the 134.8 - 135.6 that I've been weighing in at for a couple of weeks now.
PLATEAU! I am really behaving so well. I want to see some number progress (repeating my mantra that this takes time). I see the progress in my body.
As a note to that progress: I bought a dress at Old Navy I usually would never dare (dress!) because it has no seaming to disguise my problems areas. I usually try to get empire waists or something that floats away from my mid-section because it is a bit bumpy and not the most aesthetically pleasant.
I am getting used to showing my body a little more. It is not perfect. My stomach is not flat. But I have muscle and my waist is getting smaller (and is definitely smaller than my hips!) and so I bought this dress. Just a simple body-fitting sheath with a rope tie. And it looks good! Chris very, very much appreciated it when I tried it on for him :) I love the green color, too. I have hazel-ish eyes, but this dress makes them look very green.
Still a little nervous about it. But I know just when I am going to wear it (as long as it gets warmer by the end of the month!)
So buying a dress that looks hot and a dress in which I have no where to hide is a good way to notice progress, even if the $&^%&@* scale still shows me as not changing, haha!
