I haven't been giving my health my all this past summer. I haven't been tracking my nutrition, nor being consistent with working out. My scale has gone up even more since July. I have remeasured myself, and am now tracking what I'm eating. Not only that but also, looking at those totals and re-evaluating what I could be doing better. Saw my doctor and tweaked my medication so I no longer take medication which adds weight. My blood lipid results came today, its been much worse before but will improve even more after dropping 20 lbs! For some reason, my blood pressure was high the day I went to my doctor, this is never the case with me! So now, thanks to the nutrition tracker, I'm watching my sodium intake as well.
I have finally found my motivation. So far, my sodium intake is very good. I will add (or just be more consistent) with interval or fat burning workouts to help rid my body of extra fat. New goal - I will not consume calories after 8pm 5x/week. That will save me lots of calories! I will continue with strength training 3x/week for now and running training 3x/week as well. I am also going to start drinking water before I leave for work to ensure I will get in at least 8 glasses daily.
I'm excited to be at my perfect weight!
