So I'm back in the 170's. It was kind of inevitable with how much sitting around I've been doing since I've been unemployed, along with some not so healthy eating choices and not enough exercise to balance it all out.
I'm going stay positive though! I'm doing something about it now. I'm tracking my calories again, I'm making sure I'm working out at least 5 days a week, I'm watching my water intake.. Although it's extremely frustrating that I'm up at least 10 pounds from my lowest weight, I know it's not the end of the world.
I have to say, thank god it's getting nicer out. I know that living here in the greater Vancouver area I should really just suck it up and go outside when it's raining, but it's just so much nicer when it's not. I'm looking forward to walking/jogging, going on hikes, biking, and all the other fun things that come with warmer weather.
I have a girls night tonight which I'm a little nervous about now.. I know I'm gonna be drinking and chances are there will be unhealthy food as well... I know it's just one day though and I'll be right back on track by tomorrow. All I can do is ensure that I get my workout it, eat as healthy as possible before hand, and load up on some healthy food before I head over to my friend's so I'm less tempted by junk.
In all fairness, I've been feeling good lately! Especially since I've started the Body Revolution dvds and been monitoring my food/water intake. Staying within a 1400(ish) calorie range is tough, but if that's what it's going to take to get this weight off, I'm going to do it!
There are a couple events that I have coming up within the month that I'd like to look my best for.. one is my grandpa's 80th bday where I'll see a bunch of family and the other is a camping trip with a bunch of friends where I'll likely be needing to be in a bathing suit.
So I'm not going to let this number get me down! It's just a number! I've been ignoring it for far too long, afraid of what it might be, and I obviously had the right to be worried! So now that I know where I am again, it's definitely given me the push to try extra hard.
