Milestone! 10 lbs Gone!

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

It feels monumental to have my first 10 pounds gone. Wow! It often feels like things aren't happening fast enough, but slowly and surely my body is shrinking. I have another 10 pounds to go, so this is really a half way point for me. I think I will reward myself with a haircut!

Changing It Up

Monday, April 28, 2014

After a couple of months of heavy exercise I took a break for a week. My neck had been perpetually stiff and I wanted to give it a good break. I was also starting to feel some pain in my shins when I was working out, so I felt my whole body needed a rest. Back at it today! I started Jillian Micheals Ripped in 30 DVD. It felt good to be back at it. I have renewed energy and I feel relieved my little break didn't turn into a permanent break. Oddly enough, I took measurements after my week off and I actually lost an inch off my hips and half an inch off each of my thighs. Clearly a rest was in order.

As far as my eating is concerned, I am currently on day 7 of the whole 30. I had been really struggling with keeping my sugar eating under control, and while this eating plan is super restrictive, I feel it is just what I need to break some of my bad habits.

  


Consistency

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I'm exercising regularly, and I am pleased about that. I am, however, having a difficult time controlling my eating habits. I find there are temptations everywhere! Both external temptations (think the Tim Hortons I drive past everyday), and internal (my love of baking). I know I would be seeing better results if I could reign in my eating habits. I just want what I want when I want it. Haha!

It's tempting to quit and just go back to my slothful existence because I'm only doing half the recipe of weight loss, but I know that better than quitting is to keep going and keep trying. If anything, at least I'm maintaining my weight.

Weight Coming Off

Saturday, April 05, 2014

My muscles are still quivering from my workout that ended moments ago. I feel my blood coursing through my body. I'm remembering why I am on this journey. Healthy feels good.

At this point, a month and a half into this decision to take action, I feel my momentum wavering. I'm not exercising faithfully and my diet is all over the place. I want to keep pressing on with the same determination I started with. I've lost eight pounds. It says so on my ticker. That is real progress. I can feel my abs underneath my squishy belly, and they are rock hard.

Let's keep going. We can all do this!
