Biggest Loser, Weeks 8 and 9

I'm combining last week and this week into one because I don't really have time to post about this right now. Work has been crazy and I've been working long, late hours (I had to work a full day on my day off and I didn't get home until 7:45 one night this past week and 7:00 another night... normally I'm home between 6-6:30). We have full weekends from now through part of March. There's a lot going on in my family. And I'm just super stressed out. So don't expect much in terms of weight loss until things settle down, unfortunately. I haven't worked out since Tuesday because I have not had a spare 5 minutes at home, even. I was the same weight last week - at least I'm not gaining. And I expect the same for weigh-in this Tuesday. Zumba starts on Tuesday night, so hopefully I can actually make it to class in time from work. I'm excited for the class - even though I know I'll make a fool out of myself. :-P But it will still be fun, I hope!

Anyway, that's all for now. Time to get moving if we're to accomplish everything we need to today!

Don't get discouraged. You can still keep up with the little things...walking/stairs at work, pedal exerciser, etc. And just try to live actively. It still adds up. And there is nothing wrong with just maintaining for a few weeks. You're still focusing on your health and that's what is important.

As my psychologits says, even if you get a bit stuck and aren't making forward progress, the important thing is that you don't go backwards/fall back on old/destructive behavior. Things will go in cycles/phases. Just try to stay focused on what you can do and don't go back to old habits.

Yep, I'm not getting discouraged, really... as discouraging as my post probably reads. :) I'm just burnt out right now. I'm still trying to do as much as I can of the new stuff. Work was so crazy last week, though, that I wasn't even having time to walk or pedal. I got plenty of stairs in, running between floors for things or people I needed, though. So I still was trying, even though I coudln't devote any set amount of time to it.

Thanks for the supportive words, Mary.
