Well, it’s Fat Tuesday again.
First off, I want to make it clear that I am not stressing out about my weight. I’m not going to let my body shape ruin this important time in my life. I don’t want to loose a ton of weight and not fit into my wedding dress. Instead, I want to tone my body and feel better. My ultimate goal is to be healthy…
Last week, I made several goals. Here’s the honest truth… I did not meet my goals last week.
I started out good. Right after I finished my post, I got up and had a little meeting with Jillian Michaels. And then I went to Pizza Hut with Colby and Jamey. Believe me, it all goes down hill from there.
Of course, I have my excuses. It was a tough week of funerals and horrendous events. (For those who are keeping count, I could have gone to five funerals in the last two weeks where I bawled my eyes out like a little baby.) I was exhausted mentally and emotionally. Plus, I had friends that a rarely ever see invite me out to eat… twice. And I am currently on a business trip with Colby where we have to eat out.
I’m not going to dwell on the excuses though. I’m going to brag about my accomplishments. On Saturday, I went on a decent walk in 90- degree weather with my family at the lake. On Sunday, I swam in the lake for an hour. All week-long, I thought about what foods I was putting into my body and tried to eat because I physically needed it. So often, I eat because I want something emotionally. Really, food is for physical nourishment. It shouldn’t use it to feel happy. I am trying to overcome that.
This week, my goals are going to be a little easier.
1.) Buy a scale so I can track my weight. I haven’t weighed in four years. I’m starting to think that I’m using that as a crutch. So… this week I will by a scale.
2.) Work out at least four times.
I do have one big win this week… I have taken some really pretty pictures lately and I can’t wait to share them all with you guys! 🙂
