Well, I haven't been to the gym in 2 days!! Chiropractor's orders though, not by choice. I pinched a nerve in my hip and I decided after a week I should go see one to get it fixed. But I'm going tonight!! I'm pretty excited.
On another note, I am now at 187 pounds, 11 pounds down from where I started on Feb 3rd. I'm aiming for 185 by Wednesday, but we'll see. Not a huge deal if it doesn't happen. I look better, I feel better, people are starting to notice and compliment me. It's actually really awesome.
It's not like it's been a perfect journey. I've eaten too much, gotten drunk too much (or at least drank 3 times what I should have in calories), eaten bad foods, and had horrible gym days. But you know what? I'm still going!! I know this isn't a unique thing to me, I just think it's important for me to acknowledge to myself that it hasn't been easy. As long as I keep going I should be able to reach my goal by september and go back to school shopping for new clothes :D I'm super excited for that actually. And two of my friends have been trying to be healthy with me so it's even better. We do compare ourselves sometimes, but then we acknowledge the differences in each other and keep each other going. Like Ab, she loses size more than pounds, so she's been struggling with wanting to give up, but she's looking soo much healthier!! And Ro just started so we don't know how she's doing yet, but we'll sue cheer her on too. It makes such a difference to me to have someone doing the same thing as me, because they can push me on days I don't want to go and vice versa, they notice changes I dont, and they help keep me accountable when really I just want to give up because it's so much easier to be lazy than fit. But I want to be fit so I'm gunna keep going
