Helllllllooooo flu season. Listen, let’s get a petition going to have the new year start in the Summer, so that all of our weight loss resolutions are actually possible! Holy moly! Trying to stay on track while sick, is next to impossible.
Remember last week when I said I was losing my drive? Compound that with being sick, and I wanted throw this whole plan out the window. But I made a commitment, and I’m sticking to it. And even if I have to use that same excuse for the next 46 weeks, I will do it. Eyes on the prize!
This week was my lowest weight loss so far. That doesn’t sound like the week when I lost the least amount of weight, but that’s what I’m trying to say. My goal is to lose at least one pound a week, and I’d like to lose two.
But, I’ve said this before, a loss is a loss and I appreciate it. I’ve got a long road ahead of me, and some miles are going to be slower than others. I’ll complain when that minus sign turns into a plus sign. Until then, I’ll take it!
I don’t know how I only missed two days last week, but I did! Tuesday was one of those, I’m eating whatever days. I tracked it to keep myself accountable, but I didn’t worry about it. I was off sick from work, and literally wanted to eat everything in the house!
That day made me end the week in the negatives:
Not so much this week. But oh, how I wanted to! If the sickness hadn’t been a respiratory thing, I would have said eff it, I’m working out. But that whole breathing thing, is something I’ve become so accustomed to.
Monday: 5,862 steps
Tuesday: 2,223 steps
Wednesday: 6,095 steps
Thursday: 4, 085 steps
Friday: 9, 237 steps, Walked for 42 minutes
Saturday: 4,552 steps
Sunday 3,304 steps
I’ll be honest, I’d really like to get on here and say that this weight loss thing is a piece of cake, and I’m loving every second of it. But the truth it, it’s hard. Really hard. And I’m struggling with it.
But here’s what I can do, I can not quit. I can get on here every Friday and tell you about my journey, no matter how good or bad. I can stick to the plan until I reach my goal weight. And I can post my before and after pictures with pride.
Let me tell you, the thought of posting that before picture is terrifying. But I’m going to do it. I have to!
Thank you for sticking it out with me, and joining me for the ride. Believe me, knowing that you’re out there motivates me. And I hope my journey motivates you!
