4 month recap

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Tomorrow is the 19th, the random day I decided back in May I was done being a quitter when it came to working on my weight loss. I've had my ups and downs, and haven't been entirely consistent the entire time. Most of this month, my effort has sucked. I'm still here, and still working on it! I can't give up, I've come too far!

I'm still eating too much too often lately, and having a hard time getting that under control. I had stopped exercising for 10 days or so, and what CRAP I felt like! There are too many mental health benefit from exercise to leave that out anymore. The past couple days I've been getting back to being more active, and it's like night and day, such a big difference.

Today I did my walking video for the full 1-hour, since I got the rare break wherein my daughter took a nap! I found it very relaxing. I'm thinking I'll put that back in the rotation again, it's a nice video to do, listen to music, and kind of zone out.

My weight loss total is up to 25 pounds today, hooray! Feeling good to move forward, and keep on going!

    Congratulations on 25 pounds gone!!! That's a huge accomplishment in itself.

    ALL of us go through times we "don't wanna" do or refrain from doing something. You're still here and working at it... that increases your chance of success tremendously. Just take it one thing at a time and it won't be so overwhelming.

    Just now, I'm up a bit and struggling with an increased appetite. It's a phase that will pass again. You're normal. I'm glad you're here with the rest of us! It's nice to know we aren't the only ones with issues or victories.

    Enjoy your new day emoticon

    Hey Emily emoticon
    I can totally commiserate with the beginning of this blog. The whole month of August and this month too have been kind of sucky for me when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. I've not been sparking, tracking, or exercising. (Thank you for checking in on me - hugs) It's amazing to me how easy it is to immediately fall back into old habits and how hard it is to get back to the healthy ones.
    But emoticon YOU are an inspiration Emily!
    KEEP GOING emoticon
