I have not posted in a while. I have been feeling mad at myself for not eating the way I KNOW I should. I know this is always going to be a challenge for me but right now it feels so out of control!
I recently had a "AHA" moment. I was watching The Biggest Loser and seeing the emotions and all the hard work the contestant do makes me have hope again.
I went to the gym three times this week and worked my butt off each time. I have to be proud that. I try to push myself harder each time I go. I am slowly focusing on the positive changes my body has made due to my workout sessions. One being: I am seeing definition in my upper abs. You can actually see a line in the middle of my abs and on the sides. I really need to celebrate that it's a BIG DEAL. (Baby steps I guess haha) My arms are also getting firmer and I able to do 3 set of 10 half push ups, 2 months ago I had to do a modified half push up. I am getting closer to my goal of 20 full ups!!!
Although I have not lost any weight in the last month. My friend lend me two dresses to try on and they both fit! Size 14!!!! Last year at this time I was in size 16. Since dress sizes are little different then pant sizes I am on my way to fitting into a size 14 pant I cannot wait! I may not be losing weight at the moment but I am losing inches. In a couple weeks I will take my measurements and let know you know exactly where I am at.
One of the past contestant on The Biggest Loser asked What is your golden WHY to lose weight? At first I couldn't answer but I know I want to feel Strong, Beautiful and Healthy.
My sleep has been very frustrating lately! I have gotten a full physical, blood work, been to sleep labs and alternative medicine. There is still no answer to why I am having such a hard time getting a restful sleep. This has been going on for over 10 years but I am not going to give up trying to find the answer and I know in my heart this will help with my weight loss.
Total Calories burned this week: 1084
This week coming up I would like to burn 1200.
How many calories do you want to burn this week??
