No More Aggravation.

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Today is a pretty good day. I actually managed to work out before breakfast rather than waiting until after I get home from work to do it. It's put me in a pretty fantastic mood.

Pretty much since May, I've had a hard time losing any weight. It had me in an emotional slump that I'm proud to say is finally gone. I hadn't measured my waist, hips, body fat percentage, etc. since late May, and I finally decided to remeasure yesterday. I have lost 2 inches around both my hips and waist! So even though I've only lost 5 pounds between now and then, progress has been made. I am so happy.

I've started doing 80 to 100 crunches every day this week, and boy are my muscles sore. I feel pretty good about it though, because it means that I am working hard. My motivation is so high right now.

    It's totally true that the progress we make can't be read by a scale! Even if it doesn't seem like it sometimes I think you're doing fantastically, Lane! Your commitment and dedication to yourself is astounding. I know you won't let what appears to be slumps get you down, because progress is being made on the scale, in your measurements, in your attitude, in building your character, and so many other ways! I'm so happy I get to see you make these achievements for yourself!

  Good for you! I'm trying to psyche myself to work out before work too. I think it will be easier than after. hard to get my stuff organized though and no time to whine and fool around. emoticon

80 to 100 crunches EVERY DAY! wow.

Keep going!
