John’s Wellness Journey – Week 9June 26, 2012
Week 9 and things are heating up!!! I am fighting with being very sore and battling with my allergies this week. I absolutely love the fact that I get to have one-on-one with Sarah Kuretzky (Wellness Instructor Numero Uno) each week. It is making a difference already. The variety in my workout has been such a welcomed change and I look forward to that hour each week. This week I was retaining water and since salt is my weakness I am paying the price. I have decided that I will not add any salt to my food from this point forward. It is a total killer for losing weight for me. The biggest challenge of the week was my sister’s big fat Italian wedding. OMG!!! A seven course classic Italian dinner at the reception was pretty close to putting me on the verge of gaining everything back but, I found some inner strength and fought it off the best that I could. It should be illegal to serve that much food in one sitting. I tasted a little bit of everything and did not overindulge on the meal. I am so proud of myself. On Sunday, I worked out for about 4 hours doing different exercises and managed to get some of the weight off from the previous week finally. I know that I am at a plateau and I am really tired of it. It is time to refocus on what I am eating, stick to my points plus on weigh watchers and get myself the Franklin Athletic Club for some additional workouts. That place is simply amazing. I am learning so much more about myself on this “Journey to Wellness”. I am not the same person that I used to be but I am a better person than I was 4 months ago. If it doesn’t kill me, it will only make me stronger.
The journey continues……..
