I am not sure what has happened to me over the past two weeks but after checking on a few of my regular blogs it would appear that I am certainly not alone. I have been feeling sluggish and lazy. I have been slacking when it comes to weighing in and getting in my exercise.
However, thanks to you wonderful readers waiting for my weekly update I was able to put my foot down and kicked my butt back into gear!
Over all I would have to say that this week has been quiet the success. I finally got to meet my new mentor on Tuesday morning. God is so good. She is the best!
To my amazement, sitting down with my new mentor has not only helped me work out my life spiritually in finding ways to get in my quiet times every day, but I have noticed a dramatic increase in my ability to focus and get things done throughout my whole day when I do remember to spend even just a minute or two in the morning in quiet time.
So not only have I been getting myself more organized but when I stepped on the scale today I got a pleasant surprise in the form of not only a weight loss but a weight loss great enough that I lost all that I had gained last week and then some. I am so back on track. Look out 14s I’m not giving up on you yet!
So what was my weight like this week?
- This Week: 4.4 pounds DOWN!!!
- Total Weight Loss: 28 pounds down!
That’s right folks! It’s not quite a complete recovery from chaos caused by the change up in meds and Christmas festivities, but I am within a pound of getting there. My goal for the coming week is to actually get my but to work out for at least 30 minutes at least twice this week.
I set out this morning to work out for 30 minutes and ended up working out for almost an hour! If I could only do that more often, I would be great! But as for today, I will revel in my small victories and use this as the much needed boost to push forward and continue to get back on track with my weight loss.
As for those who are also struggling to kick themselves into gear, what are you waiting for? Get to it! You can do it! And you will feel a lot better once you kick your butt into actually doing it as well.
Have a happy weekend!
