Weekend Weigh-In : Ups and Downs

My fitness guru friend will be so happy to hear that I did in fact work-out at the gym 4 times this week! I worked out on the precor and weights on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I couldn't make it happen on Tuesday and Thursday because I work 12 hour shifts those days but at least I made it happen! I haven't gone to the gym today because I woke up with an acidic stomach..not fun, not fun but I will have to make time for it at least 4 times this next week.
On the other hand, my calorie intake hasn't been perfect. On 3 days this week I ate 100-300 calories over my limit. On 3 days this week I ate under my calorie limit. Thus the scale has been a little funky. It appears that I've lost about 2.2 pounds this week. This is a lot less than the first week but this is what I'm actually supposed to be losing to lose weight healthily.
I'm going to try and be more consistent this week. I'm also trying to be realistic and not get down on myself for every little thing. It's a slow process but very rewarding. I fit into this one pair of jeans that I couldn't pull up over my bootie 2 weeks ago. Just have to keep on steadily with school, work, and my goals.

Good work! And don't worry about the difference in calories...a lot of trainers will tell you it's OK to eat over one day and if you eat under another day. In total, you're netting where you need to for the week, and you'll still lose! Which you did! So that's awesome! Nicely done!
