- Progress Report month #2: 4lbs down totaling 11lbs lost thus far!
I’m calling today “feel good Friday,” because well indeed “IT FEELS GOOD” (singing in my Tony! Toni! Tone! voice). Friday is finally here ladies! Its been quite a long week for me, as work at the 8-5 has been rather demanding this week. But moving right along lets talk about my doctor’s appointment this week. So my doctor is “very pleased” with my progress and thinks we’ve got a great plan going. Now I’m not taking it for granted, a loss is certainly to be celebrated and much appreciated BUT (you knew it was coming) its time I REGAIN CONTROL. These two months have been like any other, lacking true dedication, planning/prepping, and discipline! It’s like my mojo has taken a sabbatical with no certainty of when it shall return. “What’s up with that?,” I said self, and myself said “Hmmm.” No, but seriously, I have got to regain control. You know that saying, “it’s easier said, than done“… I feel like that’s my excuse, but we all know that’s no real excuse.
Please don’t take this wrong, I’m not “beating myself up” or looking for a “pity-party” I’m just vocalizing to myself the need to make some REAL changes! Its kinda embarrassing when I’m searching for fast food calories on MFP or having to create this massive list of calories because I have to account for all the condiments and “extras” I ate! And well, since I’ve asked you ladies to be my accountability partners, I’m just letting you know the struggle is real right now. I will say that things in and around my household are about to change, much for the good. My mother is now ready to jump on board with healthy eating and the hubs is just happy we’re finally coming to the light LOL. My action plan to REGAIN CONTROL begins with these 3 simple tasks:
- Menu plan & Meal Prep (healthy, cleaning eating: Pinterest has awesome recipes, snack ideas, tips & tricks)
- Water intake (1/2 gallon to 1 gallon per day)
- Walking (10,000 steps a day is the goal)
So any of you ladies that are interested, please feel free to join me on this journey and begin with these 3 daily goals. I want to leave you with this scripture as a reminder that God is truly faithful, no matter the task or journey you face. His Word promises you “a way of escape” so don’t get discourage, just ask Him for the escape route! I know I’m ready to be broken of my bad habits in eating unhealthy food and damaging my temple. Are you?
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13 (ESV)
