So I am finally going to do it. I am finally going to share with the world what my weight is…because I feel like it will help keep me just a tad more honest with myself through the week. I’m tired of just sharing how much weight I lost or gained. Maybe if others know my weight I won’t be so quick to shrug and eat a cookie or something.
Last weeks weight: 222
This weeks weight: 219
3 pounds this week! I’m terribly excited about that. I did something exciting this week…I didn’t have any sweets! As of this day, I am 8 days in to no sweets. An entire week. I have done it! Hopefully the first week is the hardest. I had a few moments where I thought I was just going to give in, but I didn’t.
I have done my challenge for two straight weeks now. It’s almost becoming a habit. I can now do sit-ups without putting my feet under my entertainment center. I am up to 15 push-ups! They are not great push-ups, but I am getting there. I have even thrown in a few butt exercises…you know, to work on one of my greatest assets.
I am finding it harder to stay away from bread though. I had bread one day this week. Which isn’t too bad, but I failed myself. I will try again this week and the next, until I get it right.
Today starts a new diet plan for my family. It’s something my mom found in a magazine and it’s not really a diet. It’s more of a plan to follow to make sure you are getting enough of everything. It’s teaching you how to eat properly. It teaches portion sizes, and it makes us eat 5 small meals a day. If I follow it right it’s supposed to help us lose so many pounds a week..I can’t remember how many.
I feel like, for the first time in my life, I am finally taking a step in the right direction. I am not doing a spur of the moment routine or crazy diet. I am not finding excuses to slack off. I could do better with exercises. I have exercise videos that are less than 30 minutes and it would be easy to do them, but I am working up to that. Right now, I am just slowly getting into this thing.
I know that if I don’t push myself to do too much too quick, these changes I am making now will be a life long thing and not just something to lose weight.
How was your fitness week?
