March 1st...Still Working on Strengthening & Connecting!

Saturday, March 01, 2014

OMG...It's the first of March! I can't believe it's been 2 months exactly since I last blogged. I started my change in eating on 1/5 with a starting weight of 297.4. As of this morning I am at 275.0. It's hard for me to believe I am down 22.4 lbs since the beginning of the year. I have made it my goal to reach 193 by December 1. WOW, that's 9 months from today!

So while I have made some progress in the past 2 months-new eating habits, tracking on an app on my smart phone for 1.5months, and daily exercise -today, I find that my focus is just not where it should be. From 1/31 to this morning I am down 7.2 lbs. That's nothing to snuff at. But I also feel like I was focused more on the squarish box with the telling numbers than I should be emoticon .

So for March, I'm not going to look at the scale til probably the last weekend of the month as the 1st falls on a Tuesday. I need to focus even more on fresh fruits & veggies. I have added them in but not enough to my satisfaction. I'm going to have DH take measurements tonight. And I'm going to pay more attention to how I feel and how my clothes are fitting my body. I also want to commit to more days of really good sweaty workouts for this month. I think I want to shoot for at least 4 hard core days and 3 light days. I am in a challenge where I am working out everyday and I enjoy it. Some days are easier than others but I am not giving up!

I decided I needed to blog today because it is a new month and I want to have a good focus. I have made lots of progress just from January. And there's so much more I want to make with my health & fitness and my career. Nothing is impossible if you make the commitment and take the time to better yourself!

Let's DO THIS! emoticon
