This weeks challenge is to write a blog entry holding myself accountable for the progress Ive made in the March into Spring challenge. I thought a good way to do this was go back to the goals I set at the beginning of this challenge and comment on each of them:
1. To weigh under 60kg
I started this challenge at 67+kg and half way through I am not at 64.5kg. Sure its not half way, but we all know weightloss unfortunatly doesnt work in a linear pattern, rather it goes up and down over the day, month, year and dependent on so many variables. Im happy with this progress and feel that I am on track to achieve this goal through discipline and hard work.
2. To have made some friends and expand my support network
I think Ive already made some connections here, there are some of the other girls in this group that I really enjoy reading their blogs and comments. We are all at different stages of the journey, and to read some posts by women who are going through things I have or am going through is comforting....and in some ways reading the comments of some of the others and seeing how far ive come is also a good reflection.
3. To learn two new habits that help me live a healthier life
So far I have/will work one habit into my life already....I loved that yogalates video, perhaps im not too keen on the routine after a while, but id never done yogalates and its a really nice way to end the day i think. In the bid to make sure I still have something to strive for i dont have any second habits ive incorporated into my life, as many are things i already do to a certain extent and im comfortable with them in my lifestyle already.
So all in all...how do i think im going? Well honestly my progress isnt as great as I was hoping. But when i take a bigger step back to see if Im achieveing the goals i set for myself during this challenge i realise that I am no track, I am making progress and I am making small, sustainable changes to my life that will help me loose the weight, keep it off and live a more healthy life.
