Progress update 3/30/08

Sunday, March 30, 2008

Well, so far this is my progress:

Weight loss: None in the past couple of weeks. What do I expect when I keep going over my calorie range? I need to buckle back down. I haven't been tracking everything as accurately as I could. This is largely due, yet again, to my social life. It is very difficult for me to control, count and regulate my calorie intake when I am continually at social functions with food and drink. I am proud though that instead of gorging I am trying to make better choices in the food being offered. I did not pig out on the buffet lunch offered on Saturday, but only filled my plate once and with some well thought out choices. I was hesitant to move on to stage 3 but I went ahead and did so today.

Ok, losing and gaining momentum at the same time. Confused? Let me explain. When I do work out, it is going much better. I am accomplishing more and surprising myself with my own stamina of late.
But I seem to be working out less frequently. I need to sit down and figure out a new schedule. I keep finding myself putting it off and lost both Wednesday and Saturday this week. (two cardio days, not good) And to top it off I am not feeling very well digestively speaking today so I did not attempt to make up for it. My darling sister who now has the log-in of Stripped.Socks will be visiting me this week and I am hoping she will be a good cheerleader in my struggle to get back at it this week. Since she wants to get in better shape herself and has already proven herself pushy (in a good way) about my strength and flexibility training, I have high hopes of her presence not being a deterrent.

Attitude and motivation: I need a small injection of motivation. I admit my spirits are lagging a bit from by lack of scale progress. I Also am in a hurry to fit back into my warm weather clothing and was not very happy with the way I looked in some things I tried on a few days ago. I had though I looked better than that and I felt bloated and defeated all over again. GOAL: not to get too depressed by it but see it as a spur for Action.

I will be ready to run a 5k by July and I will wear a swimsuit on the beach this summer!
I will CONTINUE to feel healthier than I have in my entire life and I WILL quit smoking in the near to immediate future.
