This week's reflections.
I am still thinking about a blog I read two weeks ago, where the writer talked about how Motivation is a misleading myth when it comes to success, and that the key is actually consistency.
I truly wish I could find it again, but the writer is lost to me somewhere in Spark People.
In any case, I held on to that mantra, and it really helped this past week.
I had a big move at work, the result was roughly 12 hours of physical movement, along with an additional 8 of very light movement. Needless to say, I was beat, but I really enjoyed it because the whole time I was thinking about how good all this movement was. One of my co-workers couldn't believe how much energy I had to just keep going and going.
I am barely holding on to healthy eating, but I am not out of control quite frankly because over-eating just feels too horrible now. Not to mention the fact that three weeks ago I had a very bad stomach bug that sent me to Emergency- this is a first for me in my entire life.
Three pound loss this week. For me, this is HUGE! I normally lose at MOST 1lb per week.
I couldn't wait until next week to take my scheduled measurements so I took them last night. There was some improvement there too- an inch off my hips and .75 off my thigh. I am still working on convincing myself that the measurements are the important part. Re-programming still in progress.
Now, all I feel is impatient. Impatient to go work out, that is. I want to get off work to exercise already!
These are the kinds of days and weeks that I think a lot of us dream of on this journey to fitness.
