Last week, I set an intention to work out 3 times. I did it again! Actually I worked out 4 technically.
I got some exercise in Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday & Monday. I’m keeping with my goal of 3 days – but shooting for 4 again.
Today as I did my weekly weigh in, I saw a number that I hadn’t seen in a while. Granted my weight has been creeping up or down a pound or two all summer. So while a gain or loss didn’t seem like much a pound at a time, it does matter when you see a whole different number.
In July my anxiety peaked. I hit a place that I hadn’t been in a really long time. I was eating horribly and the scale showed it. In just over a month (34 days) I am down 7 pounds. In fact, I saw a number on the scale that hadn’t been there since MARCH. That feels really good. My summer of chaos is wrapping up and I decided a couple weeks ago when I saw an old friend, that its time to get back to being healthier. He didn’t know it, but he saw a picture of me from February, and said… that’s not you. It was at that moment that I decided, yeah – I was that girl. I’m going to find her again. He didn’t mean for it to come across negatively – and I played along, but deep down, I knew I needed to get back to her. That’s what sort of spurred this whole track I’m currently on. In about 7 more pounds I’ll be to the Feb picture weight. I can do this. I need to do this.
Next week is my birthday – specifically – next week’s post will be on my birthday. I hope to keep the momentum going and keeping my goal of 3+ workouts! 🙂
Until then, have a wonderful week!
