Well... It's that time. The time of the dreaded step on the scale and twinge in the gut when the numbers pop up...
Despite the rearrange of workouts and a couple mishaps in diet (I had a weakness for brownies earlier in the week)...
I still am 2 pounds down! Woot Woot. That leaves 13 pounds for my challenge goal (8 pounds for month goal). SCORE!! I never thought I would see the 240's again. Or at least in my 20's. Only more fire lit under my feet to keep me going so I can late say the lower weights. I feel a bit proud of this loss (despite how small it is) because a relative of mine made the comment that while living here in the south it's a hard to lose weight and probably wont happen. So the fact that I made it happen I feel a bit more accomplishment.
Allergies are still kicking my butt... but am making sure to still get up move at least. Normally I would want to stay in bed and watch movies and such...but since it's just sinus junk, I am making myself move.
I am excited also because today I FINALLY got myself a yoga mat, pilates ball, and yoga routine dvd. I have wanted these items for a year now... I figure I can be okay with it as putting it towards rewarding myself for going from 272 to 248 (24 pounds gone).
I must admit also, that last night I almost did not do the Fab Abs workout. (Find it here: http://shrinkingjeans.net/2012/12/fab-abs-january-monthly-workout-calendar/ ) But, I did it! I fought the inner voice in me trying to talk me out of it.. and did it. I told myself that my day off is Sunday. And man... the planks are kicking my behind! lol. But I can see me at the end of the month blowing the 25 seconds out the water! I partially dreading, but am excited for the 2min 30sec! lol.
I like the FitnessPals "If you do like this everyday for (so many) weeks then you will weigh (such amount)" ... lol.. It makes me excited to think I CAN weigh that much within the year.
Hope everyone stays focused over the weekend! Dont give up!!
