Well Becky girl time to see how you have been doing.
Overall l am very happy with where I am not only on this journey but with how I am doing as an active member of the starlets. My goal weight loss is 35lbs for this 12week challenge and at almost 6 weeks completed I have lost 31.8 of it!!!! Happy dance time.
So after looking over my goals again .....
As a Starlet I am posting almost daily. I have given my all with all challenges except the international spark page one ...I'm so not a techy type.
With the focus on me part ..... it has gotten better. I am saying no and it is ok to say no and slowly getting easy to say no. I am still going strong with no drive throughs. Does another happy dance. I am doing fun things again but this is an area that still needs work. To often when I have free time I think of what others need and not myself first.
With my nutrition .... I am a tracking queen ..it is the only way I stay in calorie range. I continue to precook food for my week. It takes so much stress out of my days to have stuff ready. I have tried many new foods and recipes. I am guilty of not journaling about them. Over all fairly happy with my nutrition.
With my hydration ... Im doing awesome. I drink 13 glasses water daily. I have learned to drink them early so not waking up hourly to go weeewee lol. I don't drink as much green tea as I probably should will need to work on that. Am doing great with drinking less diet pop daily. I am down to half a liter or less ... so my overall for hydration is very happy.
With my exercise .... I am ecstatic! "!" Wow I have come so far in such a short time. I am right on track with my streak!!! I'm stronger every week. My endurance is ever increasing. I am working my way through my tape collection lol. I have not journaled about them as I said I would so will have to get to that this week.
So in conclusion I am doing what I need to be doing. Do I still have days where I struggle with food choices ...yes and quite often so far I'm winning these struggles . I do still need to figure out the food in vs exercise so don't like the red words on my pages from sparks.
I'm so proud of myself and come Christmas time I will be smaller in our next family photo! !!! Can't wait to take my photo images at the end of this challenge! !!! I do know that I still have a long way to my final goal weight but now for the first time in forever I will make that weight!!!!
