Well calories were pretty high for the day. I got snacky in the evening and ended up eating some extras so hence the low deficit. I am just glad to have a deficit at all.
Did you know that 4 bottles of water (16.9 oz) equals 5 lbs. on the scale? I was surpised to say the least! We actually put them on the scale and confirmed it! I did really well with my water yesterday. I think that drinking one right off the bat in the morning (with pills) is what helped the most and then I just sipped the rest of the day and managed to get all my water in :-) Yay! Now if I can just keep it up. Wish this wasn't such a battle and came naturally.
I have been thinking about my gym membership and if I should keep it. I signed up for Linda Evans Fitness Center back in 1997 when I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. They were eventually bought by 24hr Fitness and my membership was grandfathered in at $19/mo. About two years ago, they opened some Super Sport locations and also added $10 to my membership if I wanted to go there. They really are state of the art locations and I think worth it IF I was going. So for $29/month I can go to any and all of their locations. It has been a few MONTHS since I have gone. I have had a few conversations with some of my friends/collegues who say they pay upwards of $50-$75 and I am getting a good deal. Well, it would be a good deal IF I was going. So my question to you is: Do you have a membership and if so, how much do you pay per month?
It isn't as if I did not have resources to work out at home. I have a balance ball, resistance bands, light weights (2 and 3 lbs.) the Wii and all the games, an assortement of workout DVDs plus I have Phoebe and walking. Plenty of options right?
Part of going to the gym is being prepared which is part of my problem. I need to pack a gym bag and have it ready at ALL times. That way I can leave from work and head straight there. At this point, I don't think I could get there before work. Working out at home in the morning would be feasible but I doubt I could make it during the week. Until next time...
P.S. They reached their goal for Chickadee's (Evalyn) Therapy Dog. Go here for details.
