Well, I guess what I can say is that I am SO proud of myself. I am probably one of the most tenacious people I know... and I would say I was modest and humble too...but I guess that would rule out humility as a trait! LOL
I have still been working hard at being healthy! I've dedicated August to being KIND to myself and choosing joy/love. That sounds hokey. The truth is though, that it IS exhausting to have to FORCE yourself to do anything day in and day out. So, I've made a promise to eat healthy every opportunity I can, when I can. I will exercise as much as I can, when my energy/health/schedule allow.
For me, since I love to workout I feel that more days than not, I'll exercise. Because I want to lose weight and eliminate health risk, more days than not I will choose healthy foods. For ex, today, I went to chick-fil-a [tried to give up fast food... but still I have been unable to do so. So, I am deciding instead to limit the KINDS of foods I can buy at fast food places and mke the best of the situation. Today, I got a 6-piece kids meal... [which was already a good choice], THEN I replaced the fries with fruit! Isn't that awesome? - I'm giving myself credit for that!
- Also, I took a bag of salad to work - left it in the work fridge and ate that with my lunch when I forgot to bring a veggie.
I ate a Wendy's one day and got a grilled chicken sandwich AND a baked potato, instead of fries.
I'm trying to do what I can, when I can... and I hope it pays off!
Oh and in OTHER news: I PASSED BOARDS!!! I'm so proud of that. I worked really hard and used my free time to study when I would have rather been relaxing or asleep! So YAY!
Now, back to my fitness goals. 40 pounds by end of DECEMBER [or so close I can taste it!]
Now that's enough talk... time to MAKE IT HAPPEN!
