I'm just going to cut right to the chase. I gained 1.4 pounds this week. I can make as many excuses as I want (I've been sick, I'm tired, it's been a long week at school, I've been worried about my mom and her broken wrist), or I can just 'fess up to it, suck it up, and work harder for next week's weigh-in.
I'm trying to look at this positively. I was still able to lose over six pounds for the month of January. My hope is that I can continue that in the following months. Because that still averages to a 1.5 pound weekly weight loss.
Also, as Andrew mentioned in passing, I have completed the first week of the KettleWorx six-week challenge. It is probably the best work-out I've ever done. The three best things from the work-out are:
1. The work-outs are only 20 minutes each, but you're sweating the whole time. You really feel like you've accomplished something.
2. Of the six-week series (18 work-outs), they are all different work-outs. So I don't need to worry about boredom or repetition.
3. I'm able to do them in the privacy of my own home. So I don't need to worry about being judged by others.
That's it for me tonight. It's been a long week. I'm gonna go hit it hard.
