Day one, post goal reaching...

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Well, here I am again, but now I'm on the other side. I'm excited, and though I'm sure I'll bounce around weightwise for a bit, I reached my goal and I'm thrilled with my progress.

That is what it is though, progress. I think I might see what happens if I keep tracking calories at the level I have been. If I lose any more, cool. If not, that is ok too. I just know that Aunt Flo is around the corner, and it would probably be safer for me to be a pound or two below my goal weight than right at it. I am looking forward to being able to stay at or below 125. We'll see what happens.

Today I zumba'd it with the wii. Holy cow, is that a good sweat making workout! I ate well - started the day with a chocolate smoothie that Megan50moretogo taught me about. I've tweaked it a bit. I use frozen spinach, bananas, blueberries, unsweetened cocoa and almond butter. It comes together into a chocolate flavored soft serve like concoction that is so yummy and filling!

I've been ditching the morning coffee and drinking some half caff around 1pm-ish, and I think that is helping me a lot. I get a natural boost of energy in the morning from the workout, and the coffee was sort of overkill, but then by afternoon, I was dragging. I'm enjoying the little caffeine boost at that time of the day. (I know, I know, I could do a second workout, and I do some days, but I do soooo love coffee!)

I'm holding off on more vacation posts for a while. They were exhausting to write, and actually kept me from blogging. If I get the urge, I'll do some more at some point, but I just found that I didn't need more "have-to's". I was avoiding SP because I didn't want to do those posts.

Well, no more! I'm going to stick with the here and now because it is a pretty awesome place to be! Hope all of you are reveling in the joy of doing good things for your bodies!

    It's so great that you are reveling in your goal, and also not unrealistic about it being semi-fluid. I really admire that level headed approach. As I get close to my goal, I notice that the scale moves up and down a bit. I know this is normal and natural, and I'm happy because I'm finally in a space where I take it in stride and repeat the mantra - focus on how you feel! I feel so much better taking care of myself, that though the number is a great thing too, the NSV's are so important!

    I would love the recipe for your smoothie concoction. It sounds delicious.

    "Have tos" are always so...inhibiting. I'm glad you're tabling the things that are holding you back. And that your attitude toward continued weight loss is "if it happens, it happens." You look fabulous right now.

    Well done. I look forward to hearing about day 2. (Or day 3 or whatever blog you feel like writing. emoticon )
