2 months and 20+ pounds down, time to recommit myself after a slow week
Saturday, March 07, 2009
Well, I didn't do my 30 Day Shred as I planned yesterday. I started...but then I got a phone call just as I was starting the first circuit and it derailed me completely. I felt like a failure, I asked my boyfriend-type-character to cuddle with me, and then I fell asleep.
But the thing is, I am not a failure. I have lost more than 20 pounds, and even though I haven't exercised as much as I wanted to this week, I still did exercise and I ate relatively well (especially considering how my diet now would compare to my diet before I started working on my health in January).
In this spirit, I am taking a moment to recommit myself to this process. I am doing well, and I need to keep doing well if I want to live my life in the best way possible! So here's a short term goal to get me back on track:
I am on Spring Break this week, and I have recovered from my cold, so there are no excuses. I am going to CONTINUE to eat well (let's acknowledge my success there) with an emphasis on eating more veggies, and I am going to exercise 6 out of the next 7 days (doing my 30DS for five of those days). I want to be in the 230's!! I haven't been there for a while. That is a 2 pound loss, totally reasonable. I just need to put in the consistent work to get there.
I can do this.
P.S. - I will be off the night shift as early as the first week of April!! It will be crazy trying to fit everything in my schedule, but I think this change is going to be a really good one for my health.
