i think my mom summed it up when i saw her last night. "wow, you've never been this size before!". true. this is uncharted territory. i am not used to weighing under 160, and i am not used to sticking with something this long. i am not used to loving working out, and i am not used to maintaining an active social life while trying to lose weight.
but here i am. and here i've been! for 100 days.
i have been feeling pretty off-track since july 5th, but today i think i've got it back together. i am eager to get back to 155 and then start moving down from there...i don't want to get stuck in a rut at 157-158!!
this week is going to be realllly rough. i have class after work on wednesday, and then class from 9-5 on fri/sat/sun. full time job + grad school seemed good in theory, but now that it's kicking into full swing...
on top of that, i procrastinated big-time with my reading, so most of my free time until friday is going to be spent hitting the books (including lunch breaks). which means...not hitting or surpassing my step goal until at least thursday or friday.
ughhhh!!!!! i am hoping to get a solid three hours of reading in tonight, and then maybe do a quick little circuit training work out or something. but all i wanna do is hit the park!!!
i think i need to go back to full strict-ness level with myself for a while (i.e. no tortillas or tortilla chips at dinner! no more cheese plates at happy hour!). and NOT for forever. just until i can get myself firmly back on track. especially with the lack of cardio this week, i want to keep my calories closer to 1100-1200 than the 1300-1400 that they've been at recently.
i also REALLY need to boost my water intake -- it has been slipping. in fact, i have not had any water (other than iced tea) today. not good! i feel like i've been living in maintenance mode haha, even though i want to lose at least 25 more pounds!
incentive for the next 100 days:
-FALL CLOTHES! (sweaters that look cute on me! boots that fit over my legs!)
-going for long runs in the park during the fall (oh my godd i would love to build up to this!!)
-being close to my goal weight by the time that i actually sign on an apt. with my boyfriend (we are both slow-movin haha)
-HITTING MY GOAL WEIGHT (well, at least my initial goal weight
ok time to focus on my readddinnnggggg
