So today was weigh-in day, I did have a loss since last week - down to 173.5 (again) ... While I should be happy with a loss I still kind of disappointed in myself. I am going back and forth on the scale - I weighed 173.5 3 weeks ago - I could be in the 160's by now.. I need to get myself together! While I definitely enjoyed my "week off" and still think that it is ok to do that every once in awhile, I have also definitely found it hard to get back into the swing of things. I find myself starting to track my food at the beginning of the day but then by the end of the day I am just eating what I "think" is right and not really calculating - for me that is dangerous! That is why I had to quit doing Weight Watchers points - because if I didn't know the points for something I started guesstimating and that just didn't work. I have also been slacking in the exercise department - last night I literally had to drag myself onto the treadmill. I am still kind of shocked I even did it. I dreaded every minute of it and I was miserable - this is not good! I need to - want to - exercise and up until now, I have had that craving for some kind of physical activity, I love to sweat!
So after dealing with all of this and thinking it over I think it is time for some re-commiting, I CANNOT give up at this point - it's not an option! ... I still have a loooooong way ahead of me! ... So I have decided, no more "breaks" until I am at least to my goal and even then, nothing crazy, lol. I want to go back to setting small goals and having something to work towards. My first mini-goal will be to be in the 160's by my birthday, which is June 27th - so 3 weeks to lose 4.5 lbs - I can do that! I also want to challenge myself to track EVERYDAY for a month - if I can do it for a month I just might make it a permanent habit. I always do well during the week while going to work - its easy to stick to routine there. But like most others, the weekends always kill me. I NEVER track on the weekends - I just try to "watch" what I eat - gotta break this habit! The other challenge is I want to work out at least 5 days a week - I know things come up and your body just needs rest sometimes but I think 5 days is a good number for me.
So here are my goals thus far:
1. Be in the 160's by my birthday, June 27th.
2. Track my calories - EVERYDAY.
3. Workout at least 5 days a week.
I am also changing my weigh in days to Wednesday - just because I feel like changing it up a bit.
So here is to recommiting myself and getting back at it! It's my choice - and I choose to kill this fat once and for all 8)
