The days are getting hard to count.

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I think I'm going to stop counting the days, it seems counterproductive. After all, I'm making a change for the rest of my life, not just a change to last for a set number of days.
I'm doing pretty well staying motivated. Things with work have been rough so I've been looking for a new job. It's draining. I've been hitting the gym as an outlet for my stress.
I'm building a lot of muscle with my program, so I actually went up a couple pounds this week. I'm not stressing, as my jeans are already noticeably looser around the waist and hips. It's tough to be patient when you are trying to get the scale to go down, however, the inches are shrinking so I'll settle for that. I remind myself daily that muscle weighs more than fat so my weight will go up before it goes down.
One of my best friends/neighbors joined my gym, too. Having a buddy is great. I literally said to her the other day, "make me go to the gym." She came right over and we went to the gym. Accountability, ho!
