Active April

Friday, April 12, 2013

Okay so it's almost the middle of April and I just realized I never gave a status report on March or my gave my goals for April. So here goes...

March Totals
I lost another 8.5 pounds (that brings me to 175 and beats my 5 pound goal)
I did 2,235 pushups out of my 2,400 pushup goal
I did 4,470 crunches out of my 4,800 crunch goal
I reached 110.5 miles

April Goals
I'm keeping my weight loss goals to 5 pounds each month, since that seems more doable.
100 miles seems a good mileage goal
I haven't been doing my pushups or crunches this month so far, but if I start now I could try for 1,000 pushups and 2,500 crunches

The last week was pretty rough since I was sick and now I have plans to get my wisdom teeth out next week. With all that going on, I have to admit that my eating might have suffered. I just try to keep it day by day. There is no use berating yourself on the choices you made yesterday. The past is the past. I went clothes shopping last weekend and I am so excited to finally own clothes that actually fit. Everything else I own is just huge. I have also been getting a lot of notice!

Apparently I am having a hard time seeing what everyone else sees. When I was with my mom last weekend, I pointed out a girl walking into the grocery store that I thought was a similar size to myself. I asked if I looked like her, and my mom was surprised. She seemed to think that I was a lot smaller than the girl and pointed out that I obviously have no idea what I look like. Yes my clothes are smaller, but when I look in the mirror I still see myself the way I was. I'm proud with the numbers on the scale but I am still the same person. Does anyone else feel that way? Will I always feel like the fat girl?

    My gorgeous, wonderful, amazing friend...Do I need to slap you? lol You are awesome and you look FANTASTIC. I do think it is relatively normal to see yourself more negatively though and that is a shame. Listen to Farrah! Stop it :)

    Watch this. I posted it on FB the other day, perhaps you missed it

    when things fall from the sky (arrive easy) is easy to "get lost" but you have been working really hard to get it... so just enjoy it!

    emoticon It's sounds like you've made a lot of progress. I think it takes a long time to get over that (fat girl syndrome) So many of us have that negative self image for so long that putting together what we see on the scale or in our measurements doesn't hit to our brains. We didn't get fat overnight we didn't get those negative self images overnight. I think it's normal that its takes a while to kick those ideas to the curb. emoticon emoticon
