I met my goals from last month! I tracked Monday-Friday and I worked out at least 3 days a week. I will be going out Friday morning to by a new dress before I head to Pennslyvania for the weekend. In the process of tracking my food I started making better choices. It was a nice byproduct.
I finally hopped on a scale this month. At mid month I had the sudden desire to know what I weighed just so that I had some sort of reference point. It was 5 pounds less than I weighed 5 months previous. I have since lost 2.5 more pounds.
This month I am participating in a weight loss challenge with a friend of mine. There is a $5 Amazon gift card on the line. I'm keeping my strategy simple. I'll up my weekly workout goal to 5, make sure I drink all my water, and tighten up the reign on my calories a little bitóbut only a little. Nothing too drastic. Even if I don't win, it will be fun and help keep me on the right path. Summer is right around the corner.
Not much has changed. I'm working on ways to have a more balanced life. I think the problem lies in the fact that I have too many intersts. I will be purchasing a workbook (when I have the money) that contains a years worth of writing exercises that will hopefully help me devleop my writing skills. I also have plans to delve a little deeper into the Bible through Kay Arthur's New Inductive Study Series. I'm starting with Romans because I plan on going through it in small group. I still have a bunch of crafts that are works in progress that I really need to get finished. I think a lot of that will de done this summer poolside.
I feel good; confident about this journey. Little by little, I will make it.
