1 Month Down!

Thursday, December 20, 2012

Today, I had a little bit of a rough day with myself. I didn't want to work out, I didn't want to clean the house, I didn't want to do anything!

I'm sure this is because today was the first day that I am officially done with this term! So instead of behaving myself, I didn't track my calories for the most part and just ate whatever while still being conscious of what I was eating.

Scale went down today, I didn't really get excited about it. I thought to myself, ya super... down a lb. As I'm sitting here tonight, I realized. Today is exactly 1 month since I started, I am down 10 lbs in 4 weeks! That's more than 2lbs a week! What the heck am I discouraged about? At least I'm not plateaued!! And I had actually lost 2 lbs since last week.

Had a nice chat with my cousin today that lives far away. We celebrated our little successes that each of us have had! She is not using any particular program but is doing great and looks even more amazing than ever, with lifestyle changes that she needed to make to be healthy. I'm so proud of her!

So after reflecting on today, I am going to go finish some housework, and get back on track tomorrow and keep with it! I should meet my goal if I don't plateau or give up by the time frame spark has said at the rate I'm going!
