So when I got my spark back, it came two weeks into October. Reflecting on October, I would say I have had great progress.
-I have lost 4 pounds since October
-I exercised at minimum four days a week every week
-I have tracked my food everyday but maybe two or three days.
-I have made an honest attempt to rein in my alcohol consumption and have succeeded so far to just one night a week. (still working on amount of intake lol)
-Have made a weekly routine of completing laundry and cleaning on Saturday, followed by cooking for the week on Sunday. It is helping with order in my home and life style.
-I successfully strength trained at least once a week.
As for November...
-I would like to continue my routine of chores/cooking on the weekend
-I would like to continue my attitude on drinking. Once or twice a week, never two days in a row. Limit to no more than three drinks.
-Exercise, continue to run, but not focus strictly on distance, focus on stamina, endurance, speed, and strength.
-Strength train at least twice a week.
-Try a new exercise video each week, to prevent boredom
-Continue without smoking. I have had an occasional smoke, while having a drink on the weekend. One, only one, it has been a few weeks since I have done this, and when I did, I didn't finish it, felt overwhelming guilt, and it really wasn't all that great. I'm overcoming this, I'm very happy.
-I would like to continue my 1lb per week loss through the month. So I shall aim for a 4lb loss this month.
I think that's about it for now. I'm doing great, I'm happy, and have energy. I feel like things are starting to come around for me. My head feels like it's screwed on straight and I have a pretty tight grip on the wagon so I don't fall off.
