What I learned this week: It might be hard to confess my weight on a Monday after all the distractions of the weekend. Family outings, celebrations and just a lack of a schedule makes it hard to keep to a routine. Nonetheless, lots of furniture moving and cleaning can sure make up for that extra hamburger (homemade though) I downed! My muscles hurt more this morning than after some of my boot camp classes.
Weigh-in: 162 lbs. Three pounds lost.
Motivation for upcoming week: Add one extra aerobics class during the week (although not today since I had to get a crown and I think all the bouncing would be more than I can bear!).
ETA: Quote from an article at the NYT: "The body establishes its optimal weight early on, perhaps even before birth, and defends it vigorously through adulthood. As a result, weight control is difficult for most of us. And obesity, the terrible new epidemic of the developed world, is almost impossible to cure." Now ain't that depressing?
Another interesting tool: The Hunger Scale. (P.S. I think I could keep eating all the time!)
