Reflection on Fall Challenge Week 1 Blog
Thursday, November 08, 2012
I realized that I was the biggest thing holding me back & have managed to lose 2 lbs in the past 9 weeks. Still not quite to my final goal weight but closer than where I was at the beginning of the challenge. Not only by the decreased number on the scale but by improving my attitude about it. I have come very far & realize this. I am no longer beating myself up about not making the timeline I imposed on myself. It took several years to get where I was before I started this journey; so naturally taking over 1 year to drop it isn’t a horrible thing.
I managed to get back into a better routine: making time for my fitness.
Since Daylight Savings Time on this past weekend, I have managed to get up to do my Cardio Minutes before starting my day. I have been doing my ST for Lunch or after work again; which works out perfectly for my family.
I am enjoying the exhilaration felt after working out.
My finances haven’t really changed – but I didn’t see that doing much in 10 weeks & I have managed to decrease some of my worries over it. If I do need to get back on medication for my anxiety it won’t be because I am not trying my hardest. I know that I can always do more than what I am but I am pleased with the change I have made in the past 9 weeks and know that it will just keep on improving.
Just like I am the biggest thing holding me back – I am also the biggest thing that will push me forward. And knowing this helps make everything fall back into place.
