Weigh-In Wednesday

Well, they say if you fall off the horse, you just get back up again. And that’s what I did today! I hurt my foot three weeks ago, and had to go very easy on the activity for a while.

I was pleasantly surprised when I got on my Wii Fit today, and I hadn’t gained any weight! I’ve been doing the bare minimum Hula Hoop and Balance Games. But today, I did a pretty good workout! I did the Island Lap run, which is about 12 minutes, I think. And I did the 6 minute Hula Hoop (yeah, you try it- it’s harder than it sounds!)

It did feel good to get moving again. Tomorrow is my ballet, tap and hip hop classes at the local dance studio, and I am ready to get my groove on!

Last week, I wrote some helpful tips to get moving again after a lull.

  • Start with your favorite activity.
  • Create a challenge with your family, complete with prizes
  • Do one thing each day until you gain your motivation back
  • Don’t say, I “only” did…. Be proud of yourself for what you’ve accomplished!

This week, I’m taking my own advice. And the challenge for next week is to make healthy choices with my eating. Easier said than done for this carb-lover!
