I'm still doing fairly well. I have not seen the scale move one bit and waist size is the same. But, I think I look trimmer and the belly doesn't seem to hang over the pants like it did. How is that possible? Anyway, that's what I see. And, I continue to feel good; stronger, healthier. Just wish I could "see" some results!! This is when it gets tough for me to keep going. I hit that "why bother" wall. This time I will continue to make the decisions and try to push through.
I'm still pleased with the coach. She has had some interesting insights for me to think about. I really liked my senior aerobics class. It was just right for me. Some very nice ladies. I did feel good after the class--I'd forgotten that feeling of good fatigue following a class. Like it! So my first challenge right now is to keep making that decision to exercise. The fitbit helps so I'm moving forward!
I'm really focused on eliminating the negative self-talk. Every time I start, I try to replace it with positives. I find this to be very difficult so it's taking a lot of effort to remember this and do it!!! I think this will be a huge help if I can get this under control.
I'm also seeing that I'm staying too high in my calorie range. I need to be more aware of this and try to cut back. I haven't gone over but would like to see that calorie count down by at least 200 calories.
And, the most important news of my life. My daughter in law is in the hospital. They decided to induce and started last night with meds to help her efface; this morning the Pitocin started. My son called at 7:30 and contractions were picking up in speed and intensity. I'm sure she has a ways to go but at least things are moving. I'm praying for a speedy, easy labor for her and for a healthy baby. We don't know the gender so that makes things even more exciting!
