Had a great weigh in yesterday and today!! Yesterday said 170 and today 170.5 so I'm tracking it as 170.5! Which means essentially i hit my september goal of 170, I will definitely lose at least a half pound in the next week although it won't be reflected on the scale (its that TOM next week) for a bit which is why I weighed in today instead of waiting until next week. I am so excited!
This means I accomplished two September goals so far, hitting 170 and doing 5 real pushups! I am on track to get my 60 day work out streak (7 days left til 60) and will most likely finish The Spark tonight! The only thing that did not happen yet is 3 complete circuits of banish fat boost metabolism, I actually haven't even done it this month because of being so fatigued and achey while my body tried to fight this sickness and then being so sick once the cold came on! I'm still coughing so still taking it easy but I'm working on easing back into more moderate activity,
I find it kind of funny that now that I am not obsessed with the scale and don't really much care what the number is since my inches are decreasing and I am feeling and experiencing many improvements that NOW the scale cooperates rather easily! I did not expect to reach 170 this month, i was slightly disappointed but then realized this has been a good month really. Sure I had a few eating binges but each time I picked myself up and did better the next day. I continued my workouts despite sickness, binge days and exhaustion. Yeah, sure I overate quite a bit some days but overall I've done well on most days and I ENJOYED this month. I didn't beat myself up or deprive myself of anything (although I should have deprived myself a LITTLE more when going out to eat, still a downfall of mine).
On another note I am seriously considering quitting smoking. I know I know, I shouldn't be smoking. I've smoked since I was 14, about a pack a day most days. I want to quit for my health and so I can workout better but I am really afraid of gaining weight and I have a hard time not identifying myself as a smoker. Something I have to think about I guess. I really also want to save the money, its such a waste. I keep thinking about how i could buy cute clothes and shoes for my new shrinking body if only I had the money. Its just so hard to quit!
