We travelled for a few weeks in Alberta. Along the way we visited with family and friends, attended some social events, enjoyed wonderful dinners, covered a lot of miles, and didn't have much time to exercise. However I was mindful of my good habits and did a few walks with friends.
I enjoyed the beautiful fall drive through the mountains. During the long drives I thought about what I need to do to hit my milestone of 199.9 (or less this year). I am walking San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge at the end of the year. My goal is be lighter than last year when I walked it. I will be under 200 this year.
I HAVE to be consistent with my good habits. That is where I fall down and I just have to do it this time!
I HAVE to weigh in today - first time in 3 weeks or so. I am scared! I have some water retention.
Have you ever been afraid to weigh in?
My Spark friend Carrie got me back on track with this message -
Don't stress about your weigh-in - use it as a new starting point and we will be cheering you on to be consistent with your good habits. I am pumped again and going to work on losing weight this fall and not gaining!! My big goal in October is to get back to my lowest weight this year which means I need to lose 7-8 lbs. ---This week I started focusing on my good habits again ie tracking my food and planning out my exercise & snacks.
So I am back on track thanks to my Spark Friend! My immediate goals - get to my lowest weight this year, track nutrition, plan exercise and snacks.
I am on my way to the scale now!
