Keep On Keepin’ On – Weekly Weigh In

Last week was a good week.  It was not perfect or fabulous or wonderful but it was good.  These days, I will take good.

I had big plans on the weekend to get up and workout at 4:45 a.m. every day.  That lasted, one day.  Monday I got up super early and got a good walk in with the hubs!

Then, Tuesday, I hit the snooze button.  Then, again on Wednesday.  However, I had a tutoring person cancel so I decided to use that time to come home and go walk.  That was a wonderful walk because it was long and I went with my husband and we have GREAT talks when we walk together.  Plus, working out is always more fun when you do it with someone else.

That was about it on the walking for last week.  Hey…I will take two days over none any week.

The eating was good.  We are cutting back on the eating out and the nightly ice cream.  That is going to help with the weight loss for sure.  I really watched what I ate on the weekend and tried to be mindful.

Sunday morning,  I was happy to see another loss on the scale.

Weekly Weigh In September 30

Down one more pound.  Slowly but surely it is going down.  My Dietbet ends in two weeks and I don’t know if I can pull out a win but I am going to try.

This weight loss thing is hard.  I know I have said that before but if your mind is not in it, the scale goes up pretty easy.  I just need to continue to make mindful decisions.  I know that sounds pretty simple but it is anything but simple for me.  Some days, I find myself sitting down and eating six mini chocolates, because they are mini.  It’s like I have no self control and no willingness to stop.  I need to work on that.

In the meantime, I have a goal.  I want to see the scale go down each week.  I don’t care how much, I just want it to go down.  I need to get on a downward trend and that will help me stay motivated.

Life is still crazy.  I am still trying to manage it all.  I feel out of control at times.  I love this blog because it helps me get my thoughts out.  Lately, I have asked myself, “Is it worth it?”  I go back and forth at the money it costs me, the time, and the criticism I receive when I post “unhealthy” things on the blog.  Then, I realize this is a happy thing in my life most of the time.  I get joy from it, it helps me relieve stress, and I know there are MANY of you out there who DO care.  That is why it is worth it.  Haters gonna hate.  I just have to keep doing what I can do and going through this journey.

I am just so thankful that you are on this journey with me.

Keep on Keepin’ On.
