Look back at August... Forward to September
Thursday, September 01, 2011
I did not make my goal for August! I had planned to be at or below 165 by today...and I am still at 167.4.
I am disappointed. For 2 months now, I had planned to get to 165...I made it for a few days...but it never stuck. I have been at 167ish for a while now. I just want to cross the 165 threshold and move one...it is symbolic to me more than anything else! I gotta get past that if I want to get to the rest of my goals.
On a happy note, I still ended the month with a 3 pound loss, and I have been out of the 170's for a few weeks now...long enough to feel I have moved on! I will celebrate my success rather than look at where I fell short. Last year, September was the month I started gaining weight and kept putting it on throughout the holidays. My biggest win this month will be to continue making progress and post another loss!
My plans for September are to stay with the mindful eating and to work towards a revised goal of 250 minutes of exercise per week. My 300 minute goal was too much of a stretch for now.
September is an important month for me. It is always the time of year where I undo any progress I have made. Not this year!
I am part of 2 teams- the Sunny Gals and BLC Blue team. I will stay active in those teams so that I remain focused and accountable!
Let's make September a happy month!
PS- I started the month with a cute short hair cut and highlights...I think I should have weighed in AFTER she cut off all that hair! My reward at the end of this month....BOOTS FOR FALL!
