Mid-week Check-In

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

The week is going well! The scale is improbably tending down even though I'm in the throes of TOM. The first two days were rough but I'm feeling a lot better today. Hopefully, it will be smooth sailing (and weight loss!) from here on out. Only 5 pounds to meet my goal for April!

I found out yesterday that I was named a Sparkpeople Motivator! I'll be honest, this is a long time dream come true for me. I joined the site in the earliest days but never really used it until 2009. Since then, I've made many Sparkfriends, tried to motivate others and, of course, drawn a ton of inspiration from the site. So being named motivator --like the people who inspired me-- is really an honor.

I've been eating a ton of protein which has been awesome. I've also been eating a ton of nuts but it does not really appear to be harming my progress so I will continue enjoying them. emoticon

I've been making all my workouts even though TOM has made it a struggle. Basically, life is pretty good! I will keep striving for my goal. I'll be happy with a pound lost this week!
