I finally went back to look at my calendar and I have been actively working to become healthier for 24 weeks now. That is, what?, like 6 months give or take. That is a long time. I am proud of myself but also disappointed. I have done good at making physical activity a big part of my life. I have learned to make it a priority. I am disappointed in the eating part of it though. I am stuggling so much with that and it is disheartening to bust my tail but not see progress because I can't control my eating habits. I may be a bit more bummed today too because it was weigh in day and it was the same. No change. I measured yesterday and saw no change from a month ago. I told myself, that is ok because tomorrow I would weigh in and it would show something. It showed me that I need to buckle down. I just love food too much. It is such a challenge and its one that I don't have an answer for yet. All that I can do is keep trying and keep moving. Maybe one day I will see change.
As for my workouts today, I got in two. I was able to get in a bonus jog this morning since my husband was off for Independence Day. That was nice since I don't get to do it much lately. Afternoons/evenings are just too hot. I also got in my p90x arms and shoulders. I used my new 8 pound weights the entire time and loved the burn that I got. I knew the others just weren't cutting it because I never felt sore later. We'll see if these heavier weights make the difference! I am not sure that I will get in my ab ripper today as we have to attend a family get-together. One that is mainly fried food...fried fish, onion rings, hushpuppies.... If I am going to spend calories like there is no tomorrow, I'd rather do it on Mexican food! Since that is the case, I probably won't eat much. A little of everything so I am not rude. I am eating tuna right now to get some protein in before we go. Maybe I won't be very hungry. That would help too.
Happy 4th of July!
