Why haven't I lost the 50 lbs I need to lose yet? I've been back on the program for 2.5 weeks now...LOL! (Why do our minds work like this???)
Yes, I'm back. And I'm loving being back. Not that I'm "OK" now, but I'm more like me. And that's good. Really good.
So, how am I like me again? I'm back at the gym every day on my lunch hour. And looking to get some exercise on the weekends too. I'm tracking my calories, even the ones I want to act like didn't happen. And I'm going alcohol free weekdays (for the most part), and trying to make the alcohol calories fit into the calorie range on the weekends. And, I'm being pretty successful, I must say!
Also, I'm feeling effective at work. This is big, For a while, I just felt like I was taking up space. I was probably being hard on myself, but in a way, it was true. Now, I'm doing what I need to do. I like feeling productive. Beats the heck out of being a lump.
Today was awesome. Woke up early (that wasn't so awesome, but oh well), did some laundry, cleaned the fridge, went to work and got some stuff done, went to the gym and ran and did ST, went to several stores for food & supplies, came home & ate & did some more laundry. Now chillin'. Gotta clean the house & do the lawn some time in the next two days. LOVE holiday weekends!
I'm down (as of this morning) 5 pounds. Hope that holds until Monday (weigh in day). Maybe I'll even lose another pound between now & then. Who knows?
