Journey to Wellness 12.4

wpid-Photo-Sep-17-2013-818-PM.jpg

I am feeling really good about my weight loss and wellness efforts lately! For the first time in a very long time, I love that I have something positive to report in this area!

This past weekend, I went to the gym TWICE. Yes, twice in one weekend. I worked out with my regular trainer, James, on Saturday. Then on Sunday one of my best friends who happens to be a star athlete turned trainer, put me through another workout on Sunday.

Silly me, I forgot to eat before training on Sunday so I got tired really fast. The workout was completely different from what I am used to, so I felt like I just sucked… BUT I was able to get through it. I do have some video footage, but I was not able to edit it properly, so I won’t be sharing that. Hopefully next time I will record it using my own phone so I can edit the footage to share on Instagram though.

yesterday you said tomorrow

My eating has been very good too. Right after the holiday, I cleaned it up using some of the tactics from Dolvett’s book.Β Β I just didn’t feel like eating heavy foods and more importantly, I got tired of seeing the number on the scale climb. I guess it finally clicked for me. I really want to reach my weight loss goals. Obviously, I know I cannot cram an additional 20lb weight loss into the month of December BUT I can work towards that goal slowly but surely.

Tonight I signed up for a Bollywood dance classΒ via SweatGuru too. I can and I will get in at least 3 solid workouts this week! So much has been going on that I really benefit from the stress relief of working out.

How has your week been?

Any last minute wellness goals before we close 2013?

    Sounds like you had a solid, productive week! Nice, congrats! And the fact that there are Bollywood classes somewhere on this planet, and I’ve never heard of it – is a problem, lol. That sounds so fun!

    OMG! A Bollywood dance class! I mean you shared a lot of exciting things and I’m so proud of you for two workouts on a weekend. Wow! But a Bollywood dance class may make all my dreams come true. Except the part where I look like a beautiful, exotic Bollywood star.

    This makes me smile! Glad that you’re getting there! I can’t wait for the post when you tell us you got there, I know it won’t be long!

    This week was really good for me with working out and eating. I saw weight loss too and I think I’m ready to get it together again. I just need to. I’m tired of seeing the numbers climb and saying I’ll be better tomorrow. It has to happen now. I’m hoping to reach a few goals before 2013 is over and kick 2014’s ass πŸ™‚

    • I am right with you, Faith! Enough is enough already. We can totally do this!

      Sidebar: I loved when you said that you couldn’t wait for the “I got there” post. That made me smile… I cannot wait for that day either.

  5. Yay! Congrats on your positive week. Sounds like you’re ushering in the holiday season well. Wondering if you’ve tried Classitivity in NYC yet?

    • I haven’t heard of that one yet! I looked it up when I read your comment…it seems similar to SweatGuru but you can by packages. Have you tried it?

  6. I’m so proud of you for keeping your goals, even when you don’t feel like it or didn’t get in your meal like you wanted to. A lot of us, myself included, would have put it off…love the graphic by the way! πŸ™‚

    Keep it up girl and keep inspiring others through your journey!

  7. Good deal Kimberly! Way to go on the weekend workout. You know, I can’t eat before working out, it would have the same affect on me as not eating had on you!
