This week I've maintained my weight loss and am holding at 162 for a total loss of 40 pounds since November 23. I am still excited because I know that I have been making good food choices and this week I took some much needed rest from exercising. My left foot has been bothering me tremendously and instead of doing heavy cardio and calisthenics I practiced yoga and when I was able to apply pressure to my foot I also danced.
We will see what next week holds but my biggest revelation over the past week has been that exercise does not have to be chore. Exercise can actually be fun and I am rediscovering this by doing Zumba, Bellydancing and am awaiting the arrival of a Ballroom dancing DVD that I hear is extremely challenging.
I think this is a very important to remember, exercising is something to look forward to if you find something that resonates with your soul. I have always been a dancer and have found some activities that incorporate dance and burn some serious calories. I know that next week I will both lose some weight and have fun while doing it!
Until next week, this is Renée, the Incredible Shrinking Woman, signing off!
