If you follow me on Facebook, you know I’ve express an increase of concentration of losing weight. Not just losing weight but trying to tone up as well. I wouldn’t say that I am extremely overweight or anything. I just weigh a little bit more than I want to right now. I’ve been feeling this way for a while but I know I haven’t been doing enough to fix it especially when one of my goals was to fit back into a pair of capri pants I’ve had for a while and I haven’t been able to fit them all summer. This was my problem: I have always been scared of the number on the scale. When the weight loss doesn’t show, I hate it!

I relied too much on what the scale said and not enough on what I was doing for myself. Anytime I went to the gym and worked out by myself, I never did anything to push myself. I did what I “thought” would help and then went home, knowing I didn’t do much but at least I went to the gym right? My heart wasn’t in it and I wasn’t watching what I ate so anytime I checked the scale, it wasn’t where it should have been.

Last week I decided to start doing some workouts with my husband. Other than my 2 Zumba classes during the week, my plan has been to shadow my husband who has all of his workouts planned.. and they’ve been working. I don’t understand how men lose weight soo much faster than women! I mean his ” love handles” were gone in a couple weeks! He’s probably going to be mad at me for mentioning that actually. LOL

Anyway, I changed my attitude and hoping that it helps me turn everything around. Plus, we are both working on a new diet to stick with our family. I think that we eat way too many carbs and need more veggies in our lives. What have you changed in your life lately?
