I love it when a plan comes together

Monday, December 31, 2012

I decided to weigh myself this morning since it's the last day af the year, and I was at a normal BMI! 162.5, and 45 pounds down for the year. Back when I did the SMART goal setting exercise at the end of the summer, I visualized reaching that goal on this date. But I trimmed my expectations when I had the realization that weight is a tool, not a destination. And I decided I was transitioning to maintenance at 165. But here I am anyway.

I wasn't feeling well yesterday, but I wasn't sick in any sense that would make me dehydrated. I had 4 small meals and drank 8 cups of water and got a lot of rest. I may regain a bit, but my anniversary turned out to be a full calorie-cycle day and not the eat whatever as long as you track it feast I had allowed for. Tonight will be just us at home since we don't want to share germs, so that puts me in control. So now I just have to figure out if I'm really okay to work out or just excited from reaching a goal.

    Man, that is EXCELLENT! Congrats! I hope you bounce back, but I am sure you will, whether you work out right away or not. Maintenance is a way bigger challenge than weight loss! Happy 2013!

  First congratulations on your amazing progress! I looked up exercise while you are ill and provided you take it very easy there is no reason not to work out. However the article did say that you know your body the best and to listen to yourself.
