Accountability - Bouncing Apple Blossoms
Friday, April 19, 2013
Sadly I have not reached my goals and I am posting this to hold myself accountable. I do track everything I eat and I am making sure I eat as healthy as I can, there are days where I have eaten fast food but I make sure I log them in my nutrition trackers.
Here is my problem the first 3 weeks I made sure I reached all the fitness challenges and I was going to the gym faithfully. Then I broke my tooth and this toothache is horrible
and then I been getting headaches so I decided to skip the gym. I been walking more and doing little exercises here and there at home but I haven't been to the gym. I was going to go today but my face is swollen and I really need to get this tooth pulled.
In the past I had an "all or nothing" attitude about the gym but yes I missed some workouts here and there but I learned I can not have that attitude. Yes I missed some workouts but that doesn't mean I should quit completely. A lot of people have not finished this challenge and I know a lot of people who say they need to lose weight and do nothing about it. I am trying my hardest to change my life style and become smaller and healthier.
I am still suck at 201 pounds some days it goes up others it stays the same. Am I upset about it? Yes. Am I making excuses? No. I know what it is I need to do and I am making progress toward fixing it.
I have not been getting enough sleep, this quarter at school is crazy! I am trying to drink more water
but honestly I can barely get 8 glasses but at least I get 2 (a small bottle). I have been making sure to reach my personal challenge of not eating red meat and since I cut out beef my choices at fast food are limited and I like that.
This challenge is almost over and I plan on kicking it in full force the remaining weeks. To my teammates sorry I do not get all the points but I am trying we all are making progress and that makes me happy!
