It’s been an odd week and next week will likely be the same. My girls turned 17 on Monday and we started this week off with lots of celebrating… and it was yummy! 🙂
My son celebrates his last day of high school today and graduation is next Thursday.. 🙂 I’m sure there will be more celebrating to be done as well. 🙂
My attitude is one of perseverance these next two weeks, living in the moment and celebrating.. while running as much as possible! BUT, here is the update!
Here are my goals as I continue on.. I’ll have to figure out a new button for our weight loss journey now…
- Work out at least 6 times a week – I have figured out over these 11 weeks that working out a few times a week just won’t cut it anymore.
So.. I will be running every day and/or walking/elliptical. The weight won’t come off unless I am pushing…as proven again this week. I ran 3
miles twice this week, ran 1 mile at 5mph and 2.58 miles yesterday before shin splints hit. Love those new shoes! 🙂
- Weight Watchers online. Good old faithful and dependable and easy WW online. I love it. It keeps me focused on what I am putting in my
mouth and holds me accountable. It also has really, really great recipes and tips.
- Still no more soda and I have cut back on my caffeine. I’m going to continue to mix it up in the weeks to come.
- I am loving Advocare’s awesome products.. thanks to my cousin Sarah Allen. She rocks if you want to join me. I love the products so much that I joined to get the discounts and have graduated to the trim products. Can’t say enough good things about them. My friend, Stephanie is also a distributor.. so if you know her, send her a message. The story of the road to health for her family is awesome!
I’ve just completed week 12, I have lost a total of 27 pounds.. it equals 11.76% of my weight. I’ve lost a total of 15 inches as well. (Thank you Sarah Allen and Advocare… booyah!)
I must admit that it’s been a hard week emotionally. I’m in between sizes and feeling like weight isn’t coming off fast enough now.. (please don’t comment that I am crazy.. or OCD… I totally get the weirdness of that comment).. but I am sure it’s a plateau and am seeking His direction on emotional outlets. The other hard part.. even after alterations.. the dress I wanted to wear on Sunday, for Senior Sunday? Still way too big. Doesn’t matter what I wear..it matters that I am there. Keeping it real and in perspective, but going shopping anyway. :0)
Share you favorite quote or scripture to keep you focused on the goal.. I could use some encouragement.. 🙂
