I've reached the 30 pounds lost mark!! I've lost the amount of weight equivalent to our dog, people! I'm so excited. I want to be at the 40-pound mark by Sept. 8, the day the fall semester begins, which gives me about 7 and a half weeks, so I hope I can do it.
I'm enjoying exercise as much as ever, If I enjoy it, I know that will help me to keep going. This HAS to be a lifestyle change, so the more I find ways to fit exercise into my life, the better. It's going to be more of a struggle in fall, as I have an 8 am class 3 days a week and late classes the other 2 days. I'm already trying to figure out how to fit in my workouts around office hours and grading for 5 classes and the like. I can't let my momentum fade for a moment, or I'll just revert back to my old habits. I can do this!
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
In the workout front, I've worked out every day, but I haven't stuck to my plan very well. I did well the first day, but yesterday I went swimming, and today I did the Dancing with the Stars video but didn't have time to do Pilates like I wanted to. If I didn't sweat like a fiend, I would try to fit it in this afternoon, but I know I'd just have to take another shower, and I really don't want to do that. Is that lame? Probably. Still, I'm going to end up burning 3000 calories this week, which is 500 more than I originally thought, so in my book, that's success!
