jsfantome's Journal, 19 February 2012

Well, I hated to weigh in this morning..just knew it wasn't going to be pretty! Up two - again! Seriously mind messing ridiculousness!

As you all know, I have been 'searching' for what to do about this. And after much reading, much listening to podcasts, much though about my self, my likes and dislikes, etc... I am going to stick with lower carbs, modified fats (healthy ones), and lean sources of protein (on the high side for now). And see how this fairs.

I am planning out my workouts - with a renewed focus on building muscles, toning/shaping and feeling less 'jiggly'. I have a wedding coming up to look good for - no matter what I weigh!

Seriously though, I have worked out - in one manner, shape or form for quite sometime. And I am no different looking (except perhaps a bit tighter bum - thanks to all the squats I do while waiting for the dogs to use the bathroom!) But my arms are slightly toned, but not great. Same with inner thighs or outer thighs, or abs, etc... ok, but not what you would think after several years !!!

So, some definite attention is going back into this area. Regardless of whether working out increases my weight again, I would rather be more toned/shapely down the road, then 5 lbs lighter.

Learning where to focus my attention, has been a big part of this adventure! Today starts a new chapter for me...as I am not a big gym rat to begin with, and I easily get distracted from my goals. So, I am hoping you will all help keep me focused on the bigger picture!

Hope you have a great Sunday! Much Love.

Good call.... As you say... The numbers don't really count (but I understand the frustration). It is more about toning and muscle building... Good luck :-)

Good Luck! I'm sure you are going to look fabulous at the wedding! I never thought to do squats while waiting on the dogs. That is a really good idea.

Good plan---the best plan is one that works for you and this has worked for you and it will work now. We will never be what we were at 20---but we can be perfect at any age.

Think it is a nice change of focus for you to switch from losing weight to toning up. Who needs that scale - you'll look great at the wedding!

Hi Paula. Low carbing and the scale don't mix. Sounds like you are building muscle and that will stoke the fat furnace. Just put the scales away. You look great!
