Alright, so.... I keep saying that I am ready to get back on track and then you guys don't see me on here for a few months. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I am back! For real this time!! I am getting married on November 30 and I need to get my butt in gear. I had lost about 30 pounds and was comfortable where I was at. Well not anymore! I am happy to announce that the habits I learned must have stuck because I have maintained that weight (give or take 5 pounds)!
Knowing that my wedding is coming up in November I want to get back on track. I HATE the way I look in pictures still and I do not want to hate my wedding pictures. I want to make sure that I look and feel great. Now, I don't want to do anything drastic or anything, just another 10-15 pounds. When I look at that number it seems like so much but I guess it's really not if you break it down.
I CAN lose 14 pounds in a healthy manner in 7 months. My dress fittings are in October so I have a full 7 months to do this. Plus with bathing suit season right around the corner it's time to get motivated anyway.
Working nights really puts a damper on my weight loss. I sleep at odd times, awake when most people are sleeping and I am tired ALL the time. I swear working night really messes with you. With that being said, I have been using that as an excuse for far too long. Sure, I am tired all the time, but I can find some time to exercise. Maybe it will only be for 15 minutes here and there but I have to stop making excuses. With winter almost being over *fingers crossed* I should be able to start walking the dogs again which will be helpful for me and them!
I work the next 3 nights so all I can do those days is make sure my eating is on track. I have Sunday and Monday nights off so I will get in some activity on those days. I will keep you guys posted on my progress!
Anyway, I am back, for real this time...and it's time to stop with all of my night shift excuses....
