Hooray to me! So after a week of counting every calorie, walking every day, drinking more water and less diet pepsi, I lost 6lbs! A great first weigh in!! I totally blew my goal out of the water, I was just aiming for 3! I’m happy to say I am continuing this week and I’m already feeling better. I’m feeling more positive about life and less ugh. I feel more motivation. I just want to get this done!
I am going to Disneyland in 12 weeks. My goal is to lose 20lbs before then. More would be better but I’m keeping it realistic. If I can stick to my plan and eat appropriately I can for sure do it. Maybe I can even blow that goal out of the water!!
I bought this fitbook thing at Chapters. It’s pretty cool, It gives you a place to layout your workout goals and plan menus. It also give space to write in rewards. In the back of the book there is even a space for before and after pics! I really like it because every day I take 5-10 minutes and I sit with my book and I write everything in it. I use Myfitnesspal on my phone to track calories, but to really solidify it in my head I copy it into my fit book. I love this because having the time to reflect is really helpful to me. It makes me really think about what I did and whether I regretted any of my choices. What can be improved and what is working well! Reflection is great. It gives me more of a look into what causes me to eat. Was I in a bad mood, too tired to do the right thing, feeling lazy, angry, out with friends…. What happened?
This week I haven’t cheated in weighing. Mom and I have decided that we will weight with each other on Sundays. So until Sunday I am staying off the scale. I created a cute fun chart for us to record our weight on. It has pictures of Disneyland because that is the goal we are working towards right now. We have it hanging on my bathroom door so we see it all the time. It has been working as a reminder to us.
I’m having a good week so far. I’ve had no fast food, no doritos, and drank only water or green tea at work. I also have gone for a walk every day. I did end up at ihop on Tuesday with my friend. It worked out well though. I had 950 calories left and my dinner was 1100… so I was only over by 150! (Numbers not 100% it was really more like 146 calories over.) I’m excited again to weigh myself. I’m thinking that I will be down again and I’m really excited about it.
I will update on that soon.
Does anyone out there know how to figure out what you want to do with your life? Cause I have no clue…. All I know is that it needs to change
