can't stop, won't stop!

Monday, September 07, 2009

okay. today is september 7th, 2009. so the first week of the month is behind us already. doesn't that seem crazy!? i can't get over how quickly time flies. today is also the beginning of week 6 for me. it's very important that i stay motivated and consistent right now. now is not the time to lose focus.

i worked a lot of overtime last week because it's very rare that they offer it at my job, and so i had to take it while it was available. can't wait to use that money to put new tires on my car and buy some new lifting gloves. the ones i have right now are shot. lol. but yea, i worked a lot last week and was hitting the gym hard, and now i don't have to be back at work til 11:30am on thursday (which is awesome!) but i'll be doing a lil bit more overtime on thursday and friday. i've also got a lot on my mind lately and i can't let my emotions set me back. i have to focus my energy into productivity.
i lost 4 lbs last month, which i'm happy with, but i really want to drop 5 this month. i'm feeling stronger than ever, lifting harder than i ever have, and keeping this food & exercise journal and i just have to be patient... it takes time to transform. it's hard work and you have to want it bad enough to make it happen. i've been really emotional for the last couple weeks and i haven't really been talking about it with anyone, and if it weren't for the food journal i probably would have binged a couple times. thankfully, i've stayed on track. i keep reminding myself that the one thing i CAN control is myself. hoping to blast some fat this month! thanks for checkin in on me!

much love,

    It's good to see you blogging again!! I'm not surprised to hear that you've been keeping busy and AWESOME attitude regarding the overtime (it's easy to far more short-sighted when it comes to that sort of thing!). Keep up the awesome work and those 5lbs will be history!

    I soooo admire your focus & positive attitude.
    Also can't believe September is ALSO flying by... less than 4 months to 2010 makes me re-examine 2009 & the goals I set out for myself.
    You seem like you're on a great track with nutrition!

    Good Job Wendi! I, like you, need to remember to be PATIENT with myself when it comes to transforming! I've been dieting hard for 5 weeks and have only lost 5 pounds (during the week when I drastically cut carbs for a week)... when I write it out like that... It actually looks like I'm RIGHT on track!

    I'm glad I came by to visit your page today! I'm glad you're getting all this overtime!!! The $$$ will definitely come in handy!

    Have a great day! emoticon
