After my awful week last week, my goal was to try to get that weight I gained back off as quickly as I could. I didn’t think I could do it in one week but I am so glad I did, giddy in fact!!! I needed a big win to be back on track and hope I can keep finding good inspiration to keep on losing.
The 2 big things that I got back to doing this week was working out each morning before work and again after work, along with the walks before lunch I continued to do. And second, staying within my allotted calories according to the lose it! app I have been leaning on.
I know I have said it before, but this is always the hardest time of the year for me to ever stick to a diet or in this case, a life style change. Its like the switch flips and I am on holidays for the next 2 months. So how to change that impulse, one I have been fostering for 30 years? If I can figure that out, I am pretty sure world peace and a cheap clean energy source are soon to follow…..
I have been going back and looking at old pictures of a thinner healthier me, as well as pictures from this past March to help motivate me. I have avoided posting such pictures to this point, mostly out of embarrassment. I think it may be time to own up to where I let myself get and where I want to be again. I am going to create a page of pictures on my progress and goal, although I guess I will have to come to terms with me just plain getting older another time.
Got lots planned for this weekend, a sunset photography class tomorrow night so our hike will happen on Sunday and I am pretty excited about it!
