I have been playing games with my goals for the past couple of months. I lost 2.6 pounds in July, went to the gym faithfully, completed the support group 25 mile challenge and my waistline is virtually the same. I would say I gave it my all but that would be a lie because I wasn’t mindful of my food intake. It actually frustrates me that I have to eat like a rabbit to get where I want to be but it is what it is…
Now that I have the fitness down, It’s time to finally get the diet on board. Game over. Are you with me?
I am finally ready to commit. I am looking forward to planning and being diligent like my girl Tia. I mean…she has 3 kids and does it. I can too, right? At this point I NEED to or I am going to be just like the rest of the people at the gym who go for years but look pretty much the same. -_-
The great news is that I really don’t look the same as I did in January but somehow I am still the same size in clothing. I want to lose one size – that’s all. I am not sure why this has been so hard for me.
Perhaps I overworked myself in the gym. However I must say this journey has taught me a few things the hard way like…
- My metabolism is not the same as it was 5 years ago. (why?)
- Food REALLY matters. (but why?)
- You can still lose a good bit of weight and still be the same size. (no, really…why?)
As much as I wanted to be stronger, being leaner is more important now. Working out like crazy has helped with my stress level but I am going to lose some more inches this month and seal the deal once and for all. So here we go…
One pants size.
I am going to break out the tape measure again for August and eat more salad…I guess. lol I wonder if I can cut out pasta for the month too? Hmmmm
