So Ive realized today 2 things. 1 being that I am halfway through the valentines day challenge and may actually reach the far fetched goal that I put on myself at week 3 of my journey. The 2nd thing being that I am seriously at week 13 of my journey!!!!! Holy cow. That is just such a huge milestone for me! When I was doing Body For life, a 12 week program, I had every intention of finishing BUT I ended up quitting at week 8. So just getting to week 8 of this journey meant so much to me. I thought about it and waited for it to come around so I could push through and make it to week 9. Suddenly Im PAST week 12 even and sitting at week 13 without a thought about it until I looked at my spreadsheet today. Quiting at week 8 of BFL really just blew my self esteem and self trust. I started this in October with little faith that I would even get past week 8. I let myself down before and failed and it really did something to me. But here I am, sitting in my lose sweats, and realizing that I ABSOLUTELY CAN DO THIS!!!!!!! Im amazed with how far Ive come and Im ecstatic! Granted, I have slacked off alot….I was like the life change/strict calorie counting/workout queen natzi at the beginning of this and now that Im cut my self some slack I feel like Im not working hard enough even though Im still losing 2-4 lbs a week. I must be doing something right. I am struggling but Im working through it and thats what matters right now. I have no doubt in my mind that Im going to make it to my ultimate goal of <150. By February 14th Im going to be in the 210’s!!!! Im going to need to buy new clothes in the next few months and Im so excited!
I made a team challenge today on my BL team board that I was going to challenge myself to workout 5 day a week until the new year. Im going to push myself to work out. I need to post a few pics around my apt of lose flabby skin and that’ll get me moving! I know how important it is and this is definitely where the commitment of my journey needs to come into play!!
Im doing a happy dance right now! Im feeling good and I hope yall are too! =)
