I'm bad at this. Blogging about my weight loss has not been a priority to me. Blogging regularly is a challenge anyway, but this takes it to a new level.
I finished Day 17 of the 30 Day Shred. :) Today, I did NOT want to work out, and it took all I had to go through with it.
I worked out with my two year old again, and she walked into one of my 5 lb weights during bicep curls. Ouch. I had to stop the tape and give hugs and kisses and admonitions to stay away from my weights. Bet she won't do that again. I totally did not expect it, so I wasn't paying attention.
My clothes are fitting more loosely. I didn't take any measurements, so no idea what my progress is, but that's okay. I really want to be more internally motivated than results motivated. I feel stronger, I am thinking thin, and I am making choices that will help me achieve my goals.
My ultimate goal is to lose 50 lbs by December. I think that is reasonable, but its also long term enough to remind me that I am in this for the long haul, and its a marathon, not a sprint. That helps me, when I feel discouraged, to remember that its just beginning, and I have to make it a lifestyle change if I want to keep it up permanently. I have struggled with this all my life, and I think its high time I take actual control.
Thanks for reading. :)
