Week 14 & 15: Ugh
Monday, April 20, 2009
The last two weeks have been terribly hectic. I started my new placement at the grade school, so I've spent the last two weeks adjusting to the major changes in my life. I used to have nights off, now I am struggling to find ANY time in teh day. That's obviously taken a toll on my workout and eating healthy. I've had a helluva time tracking my food, something I am usually great about. And I was lucky to get in 30 minutes of hard core cardio.
Either way, week 14, I lost 2lbs. And this week, I gained one back. I am not happy about this, obviously. I have been great about maintaining and not gaining, but this week was the tipping point. I am going to let myself slide and not beat myself up. This is my journey, after all.
I know that I most likely wont make my goal date. I didn't make it to my goal on April 15th. I was two pounds off. This set back means that I am going for failure. With only two months left, I still have 24lbs to go. So now, I am pushing my goal date back to August. That way, I have all summer to continue. With 4 months to go, I should lose 6lbs each month. And if I dont make that goal, then I will push it back even further. It's my journey, and I can do what I want.
In the mean time, I am concentrating not on the number on the scale, but how my jeans feel. Already, I have moved into my skinny jeans. I can even wear tighter shirts without having to worry about a muffin top! AWESOME. My comfy jeans are not starting to fit really loosely around the thighs. And my boots, oh my boots! My favorite boots have these shoe lace like things in the back that I used to have loosen all the way to put them on, but now I am tightening more and more each day. You cant get a better pay off than that!
