Period Weight Loss – 0.8 Pounds
Overall Weight Loss – 11 Pounds
Finally! After 2 weeks of weight gains I finally posted a loss. It might be a small one, but a loss is a loss and right now I just really needed to see it. It's been a rough 30 days for me, but it feels good knowing that I'm starting to get back on track
What Went Well
Not a lot of areas that I can say went well these last 10 days except that I was definitely more active. the weather has finally gotten better (at least here in VA) and I am taking full advantage. Soccer season has finally started and I am the coach of my daughter's youth soccer team. I love to coach, it's great to get out there and run around with a bunch of little kids.
I've also started playing basketball with my kids. I have 3 girls so we play 2 on 2. I take the youngest on my team and we play in our driveway. I was skeptical at first that I would actually get any exercise since my kids are 6,8, and 9, but I've been amazed at how winded I get even after about 15 minutes. The bonus is that I get exercise while spending time playing with the kids and they just love it!
Areas to Improve
Still quite a bit of eating out (though not nearly as much as the 20 days before). I've also struggled with drinking water. It's strange, it's not like I've been drinking soda or any other bad drink, I'm just not drinking at all.
Today starts a new chapter for me! I didn't realize it until I got into work this morning, but today marks 99 days without smoking! That's a significant accomplishment for me. For those of you who haven't seen my earlier posts, smoking was the first bad habit I needed to break, losing weight has been my my second priority and I am happy that I've managed to take 11 pounds off while quitting smoking. At this point I'm ready to declare victory on the smoking, put more attention towards eating right, and really start to give more thought on getting more exercise.
Goals for this week (Next 10 Days):
Shooting the moon these next 10 days, I'm going for 10 pounds (yes, that's 1 pound each day). In order to be successful, I will need to execute perfectly every single day:
- Calories under 2500 every day
- 100oz Water or more every day
- Exercise every day
- Maintain a positive attitude!
Anyway, wish me luck. Stay Strong!
