When I first started losing weight it seemed so easy! I was determined to change my lifestyle, and I did! I was determined to be consistent in my workouts and I was!
Today I had crazy weird cravings out of the blue (maybe related to monthly happenings), and I indulged them. I'm not crying over the chocolate trail mix, candy, nachos, chips, and soda... (except for my tummy hurting)... I'm just reconfirming that this is not how I want to eat.
By my next birthday - June 30th - I want to lose 10 pounds. I used to lose weight at that rate when I first started. And in order to do that now, I need to be serious about tracking my foods, eating the right amounts, and getting those workouts in.
This new goal couldn't come at a better time; my Census job is done, I need to look for work, I'm scared about the future, submitting resumes; lots of stress, and a great time to refocus on changing the things I CAN change: those habits.
(My husband keeps saying how skinny I'm getting... I confess that even in the comparison picture from my last blog I BARELY SEE A DIFFERENCE. I know it's my eyes that I can't trust. But I made huge strides today by wearing my "W" skinny shirt that shows my arms at the Park. I'll upload pics later.)
