This is a short and simple update to my blog on Feb 15th. Keeping myself accountable is the best way to succeed!!
No more excuses.
Doing great with this!! Any time an extra session is offered, I do it.
No more 'slower is better' used as an excuse so I can eat 'X' this: weekend, trip, holiday, random tuesday.
Eating to live while not depriving myself.
No more alcohol until I celebrate reaching 165. (this will be HARD!!)
Not only was that HARD, but unrealistic. While I did overindulge a bit for St Pat's, I also have eliminated drinking on weeknights and only partake for special occasions
No more whining.
No more taking weekends off from exercise.
Have exercised almost every day since 2/15 and have to FORCE myself to take a day off this weekend.
No more deciding to have a relaxing day off and not leaving the house, rain or shine.
Snowed, rained, hailed for Shamrock run, could have wimped out and didn't
I will eat real, whole foods
Doing great with this!! I love food, food loves me!!
I will eat my minimum calorie/nutrition limits
Have had to increase my calories due to working out more... weird huh?!?
I will exercise more, bigger, louder, higher, stronger, longer
I'm actually having to force myself to take a day off on Friday this week.
I will practice, take lessons, golf as much as I can (weather pending)
Weather has been HORRIBLE in Oregon
I will read ingredients and stop eating any food that contains stuff I can't pronounce
Takes a little longer to shop, but it's pretty easy
I will go out with my friends and not deprive myself of life during this time
Had loads of fun on St Patrick's weekend!! Around working out and doing Shamrock Run 5k
1.5 lbs per week, 20 weeks, 45 years. I can do this!!
6 lbs lost so far, which is about 1.2 lbs per week. I'm okay with that. That puts me right on target with my goal. I'm also doing more weights so increasing the muscle at the same time. Burn fat/ gain muscle, rev up engines for more fat loss!!
It's all good!!
