Day 226

Friday, August 14, 2015

emoticon Today I weighed in at:250, that one pound decided to stay off! Even after my crash on Wednesday! Now to lose some more...

emoticon And it's back to the grindstone. I don't know how much exercise I should be getting as someone very out of shape and overweight, but I know I'm not going to stop. If I need a day off in the middle of the week, so be it. I've seriously been thinking about it, and I don't think I overdid it by very much, if I had, I would have lost weight like crazy, right? I'm going to pick back up today, but maybe work out a little later in the day, like after pool time. Around 8 or 9 would be fine too. I just can't keep getting up super early to work out. As my therapist said, you can't be a night owl and a morning person.

emoticon I think the key is going to be to keep going and not give up. I almost did. I was so tired on Wednesday and then on Thursday. I can't let myself crash like that again. So I need to figure out how much cardio I really should be getting, and go for that. Even if it is less than what I was getting.

emoticon My food the last two days has been bad. Not horrible, but bad. Wednesday I let myself get way too hungry. And yesterday I was at a point where I just didn't care. I can't let myself get there again. I'm going to eat a lot of veggies today and, not try to compensate, but try to get myself back on track.

emoticon I have to remember my goal, my focus. I can't lose sight of that, what is ultimately my reward as well, losing this weight. I don't want to give up! Not even for a moment!

So today we are going to the pool at 0930 and I'll probably workout before we leave for that, then I have a friend coming over for the kids to have a play date. Then I'm going to try to get the house clean, it is not a disaster, but very messy

    I'm sorry you had a crash day, but I can identify. I'm definitely a perfectionist, and I have a tendency to overdo and then just stop because I've over done it. I also do the "get too hungry" thing. Well, every day is a new day. That's the only way to live it and the only way to lose it. You're doing great!

    You are my new role model! Day 226!!! It's so helpful to hear that sometimes it's hard to diet, but we just keep plugging away.

    you can totally do this! Just make sure you don't overdo it! Add some meditation, too....and I listen to DocRenee podcasts, formerly inside out weightloss....get your mind and subconscious fully engaged in what you want to be!
