As of today, I’m on day 17 of my path to health and as each day passes, I get more excited for the next. As with anything in life, there are ups and downs, but I really want this so I even went to the gym on Independence Day to keep up my momentum. Here is my instagram pic of me sharing my love for my new running shoes.
And this one from my time on the stationary bike that same day.
Am I becoming addicted?
I think I might be, but then came a big bummer. The tale of my scale on Friday, 7/5/2013, when I weighed myself. I figure Friday’s will show me how I did for the week and keep me motivated for the upcoming weekend.
Last week, I was out of town traveling and didn’t drink as much water as I should have those couple of days nor did I pay attention to what I ate like I had done the week before. Then there was Independence Day goodies too, so the scale showed the efforts – or lack thereof – of my week. A gain of 1.6 lb on Friday, 7/5/2013. Cue sad trombone.
I did keep up my exercise regiment of at least 3 times a week tho and despite my gaining weight last week, I lost 1/2 an inch in my waist. YAY!
My continued dedication will make my journey to a healthy lifestyle happen. I must remind myself repeatedly that it won’t happen overnight, that it will take time and to be patient. After all, patience is a virtue, right?
Do you think I should be weighing myself more than once a week?
