Jan. 2013 wrap-up

Friday, February 01, 2013

I just wanted to do a recap of the last month real quick. I think doing a recap will help keep me accountable and get my mind right for this new month. I am thankful for new starts and each 1st of the month can be a new beginning.

Last month I weighed in on the 3rd at 222.6! YIKES! I was out of work for about 6 months, fell in love and enjoyed the holidays!!! It definitely caught up with me.

My goal was to be 210lbs by the end of the month. Today I weighed in at 218.8.

The grade I would give myself for this month would be a C+. I loss 3.8lbs and any loss is progress and great, but I give myself a C+ because the 1st half of the month I half did everything. I was either working out and not eating right or eating right and not working out, or just doing both moderately. It was only the last couple of weeks I really got serious and busted my butt, so I know I could of loss more.

So I am starting Feb. off at 218.8lbs. This month's goal is to be 210lbs by the end of the month. It does sadden me to know I put myself a month behind by half going at it but I can't look in the past.

When I reach 210lbs my reward will be to buy some new workout clothes. Which I really need. At 205lbs I will get a pedi and mani!!! Haven't had one of those in probably 8 months. I used to be the nail shop diva until I loss my job and learned I could live without them. So now it will be a treat!

Other things motivating me is a trip to Orlando this summer and buying summer dresses and possibly a new swimsuit for the occassion. That is exciting and I try to keep that in mind as a way to stay on track!

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great day!
Thanks for reading!

    It's great to analyze where you can make improvements and work toward those improvements. emoticon I didn't make my weight goal also, so now I know that I must stick to the plan, avoid emotional eating at all cost. Take a ride, a walk, or get in some squats. Another strategy I'm incorporating is keeping apples, celery, cucumbers, and carrots sticks available. These crunchy snacks may hold be through an emotional ride and curb the hunger pangs. So, girlie, get out there, put some strategies that will help you cross the finish line this time. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Kudos on the -3 lb loss! emoticon

    Please don't be saddened about that "being a month behind" stuff. I had to stop myself from thinking about how I would be at my goal weight or beyond if I hadn't stopped cold turkey back in July.

    I wil also be going to Orlando this summer and I plan on being a tube toppin', spaghetti strappin' and shorts wearin' fox with no worries. Back fat be gone! emoticon emoticon
