Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve been around! Life has been pretty hectic lately, and I’ve been dealing with a little worse than I would if my husband was around.
My sister gave birth to her daughter, Ava, and then spent almost 2 weeks in the hospital due to infection. I’m flying out on Friday to be there to get her back on her feet. And then my mother ended up in the hospital at the same time with issues due to her diverticulitis. So, I haven’t had time to sit down and blog because I’ve taken that time to just veg out.
But I have still stayed pretty vigilant on my weight loss journey. I’ve been working out pretty hard – focusing on cardio (c25k), and legitimate weight training (if I can’t do more than 8 reps, too heavy. If I can do more than 12, too light.)
I’ve started c25k over because I had an ankle injury and had to forgo doing it for about 3 weeks. Tonight was actually Week 1 Day 1.
My last weight in I was 226.1 – it’s been a slow weight loss, which I have mentioned before, but I really am okay with that because I truly want to keep it off this time. Any time in the past I lost weight quickly, I never kept it off. And I never went about it the right way, but I am now. And I know that I have put some muscle weight on, so I’m not too worried about how slow it’s been in the last month.
I have also noticed a new NSV in the last few months – I am far more persisten, and I possess a hell of a lot more perseverance. In the past if I fell off the horse, I stayed off of that horse for months and months. A horrible downward spiral until I realized I was yet another 10 pounds heavier.
But now I fall off the horse, and within a matter of days, usually 2 to 4, I am right back on it. I don’t wait to gain all the weight back, usually I don’t even gain a pound back. Instead of 2 bad months, I have 2 or 3 bad days.
This is a trait I hope to hold onto.
