Day 42 - Long Week

Well I have only lost a pound this week. But considering that I spent the weekend eating WAAAAY off plan and had a bad lunch yesterday I think a pound is pretty good. I haven't been working out at all and I really need to get back into that. I got really burnt out because I am getting so tired easily from my medications and my body still trying to heal from surgery and cancer. All and all I am really happy with the progress I am making although at times I feel frustrated that it isn't a faster process. I have to continually remind myself that slow and steady means a life long change.

Do you ever find yourself in the middle of something wondering about how it will feel to reach your goal? Sometimes I feel like it is so far away that I will never make it there. Sometimes I think that even if things go perfectly and I get to my goal weight it will take too long or I won't be happy. When you are trying to lose weight a year feels like a century. I keep reminding myself that as soon as school starts and I am facing graduation and more responsibilities it will fly by. Hopefully this is when I will start noticing the biggest difference in my body. I did see a friend yesterday that I had not seen in awhile. She noticed that I looked smaller. Those little things always seem to be so encouraging. Until next time.....send good weight loss vibes my way!

Day 35 - Back on Track

Well I am happy to say that even though this week wasn't exactly my best because of the 4th of July, I lost weight! It actually evens out last weeks not so exciting results. I think that my body was having trouble trying to handle all of the workouts I was putting it through. I think at this point I just need to focus on less intense things because the break seemed to help a lot. I am hoping to start a zumba class with Lizzy and Emily on Wednesdays. I found out yesterday that I really like swimming laps. Unfortunately I have nowhere to go swim but at least I know I like it and it is such good exercise! This weekend I am heading to Jackson for a bridal shower so hopefully I can try to stay on task for the most part!

Day 28 - Ugh

Ok so I am not exactly happy at the moment. I feel like I did everything right this week (minus yesterday but it was an out of the ordinary day). But unfortunately I didn't lose anything at all. I think my body could just be retaining water because in the middle of the week I had shown some progress. Either way it is upsetting. I am hoping that next week I will have a larger number to report. I feel like this summer is starting to fly by and I would really like to have something to show for my hard work but at this rate I don't think I will! Oh well, fingers crossed for next week.
