I am half way there. . .
Monday, October 22, 2012
After reviewing my 12 week plan I can see that I got derailed. I can make excuses or just suck it up so I will. . just suck it up. I have the ability to refuse sweets, which are my biggest weaknesses but I didn't so here I am. I can still get in a 10 pound loss by December if I just put forth the effort. I have been doing the exercise and I have been tracking and watching my portions but I have not been consistent in the food department.
For the next six weeks, I promise myself that I will eat fewer carbs and stay away from the sugar. I will introduce the South Beach, which by the way I did not get to start because of my guest. (my choice, no excuses) I still cannot fit into those jeans that I bought and I have another shirt now that is beautiful but a little tight around the hips. I am committed to exercising, now I need to be committed to watching my food.
I reward my exercise by using body sprays that I got from Bed and Bath shoppe. They smell so great and I only use them after I exercise. Sometimes just writting how much I weigh is my reward. I have lost 5 pounds and seven inches. That is great and I am happy kind of but I know I can do better and how I can do better. So I will watch my food, especially the calorie and carb count and keep up my exercise. I reward myself by using special things that I don't normally allow myself. I will really push myself for the next six weeks to reach that goalof 10 pounds and then some!!!
Spark and my fellow Golden Phoenix has really encouraged me to keep pushing myself and for that I am thankful for each and every one on my team! I also am learning to go at it slow and steady even though fast would be so much better but not as healthy for my body. I am learning a lot on the message boards about nutrition and fitness. Without Kika, Kelly, and Julie I would still be doing the same old thing. The captains put some spice back into my fitness journey! I am now a soaring Phoenix and proud of it!
