Finally, proud of me...

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

About 3 weeks ago, I can to the realization that the numbers on the scale are rising to where they never have been before as well as the fact that in 13 months, I'm going to be 50. I was more unhappy about the scale than the age. My oldest/dearest friend of 45 yeas wants to celebrate our 50th birthdays together as we are 3 days apart in age. (That's just under 13 months from now.) If I want to make a change, I need to be mentally ready. Well, November 30th was my "I'm ready!" day. I logged my weight and measurements and prepped a menu for the next few weeks. As of December 1st, I started my new fitness program. I've got a great journal to track my eating (restricting calories to 1200-1400, one day up to 1500), my exercise, tracking my intake of water, and have been very good at logging all needed stats. (Thank you Happy Planner, Fitness edition!) I've got a hubby who is the best support team a girl could ask for. I am now starting my 11th day and am 5 lbs . I was completely amazed! My 12 month game plan was to lose 1 lb per week (roughly 45-50 lbs) with a few extra weeks built into the plan just in case I needed a slight buffer. I've added a few apps to my smartphone to keep me in line as well as breaking things down into 'mini goals'. I've found that not only am I finally proud of me for keeping on track, but I've also motivated one of the ladies in my office too. Who knew I could help inspire someone else?! I'm ready for the next few weeks. As my office closes for the week between Xmas and New Year's, that's the week I plan to 'crush it' with extra fitness activities...walking, hiking, biking, dance, yoga... Why wait for January 1st? I'm ready to be a new me NOW!
