Yep, I'm still ridin' that pony. It bucked me off in February over and over but I think I got my seat planted in the saddle right now.
March was a new beginning.
Step one: I removed all the devil chocolate out of the house. I still have my splurges every now and then, don't get me wrong. But I do lots better keepin' it "every now and then", when it's not sittin' on my table.
Step two: Get back in the workout routine. I was lettin' myself put other stuff ahead of working out. Can't imagine someone doing that! But I'm trying harder to stick with at least 4 workouts a week. Even when we've been out of town the last few weekends, I took my runnin' shoes and went for a quick jog.
Step three: Don't get so down on myself if I screw up. And believe me, I SCREW up! But every once in awhile I want fried chicken or a chocolate chip cookie dough blizzard or my favorite pasta place. It's not going to kill me. But moderation is key and working out is essential. And you know what else, the husband loves me even when I don't love myself. So maybe I should realize there is more to me than my weight? Of course there is. Just have to be reminded sometimes.
Step four: Don't over-do it. Somehow I managed to hurt myself running last Thursday. Shouldn't be surprising. The husband doesn't call me Grace for nothing. I ran 2 miles in 17:39, which was warp speed for me. But for that accomplishment, I think I hurt my Achilles tendon. Of course, that's my professional non-doctor opinion. Had to take off a few days. Finally was able to jog again today but it's still bothering me. It really sucks!
So weigh-in news. This week I was down.....drumroll....2.4 lbs! I'm back in the red! Yea me!
Keep up the good work ladies. It's hard but your health is worth it!
