I've had this blog rumbling around in my head for a while, but just haven't taken the time to type it out and post it.
I had been toying with the idea of resetting all my goals to better reflect the ones I am currently pursuing. The only downside was that I would lose all my tracked info, weight, food, exercise, etc. I hesitated to do that, but decided to take the plunge and reset my goals as of April 1. Nothing really new there, just a way of recommitting to my journey, and being able to see when I am meeting my 5% goals that I have set for myself. I am making good progress, I have my days where I don't want to do anything, but I remind myself of my goals. It is also really interesting to see the trends of my weight loss. Even though I am doing the same exercises every week, and am staying close to my calorie range with some higher days and some lower. I usually have one week where I lose upwards of 3 pounds and then for about 3 weeks after that I will lose anywhere from half to one pound. It is cool to be able to see trends!
I had a little bit of a downer moment today. My warrior dash is coming up the 20th. Me and two other girls are going and we were going to dress similarly. Well, one girl picked out what she wanted to wear and gave us the website. I am not comfortable buying off a website where you can't return it and don't know if it will fit. I went to Sports Authority to try on some different styles, but I am still to large to wear them comfortably. It is a little discouraging to be the "fat friend." So, I will have to be the odd one. I have to admit, I got a little down about it.
But then I reminded myself of all the changes I have made over these last months and I am seeing some awesome results! It is just going to take time to meet my goals. And I won't be odd, I'll be unique! So I recommitted to continue my journey and went to workout class tonight and kicked butts and took names!
That's doing it Sparkler Done style
