I checked my blog archives, and it’s been roughly two months since I decided to take a break from blogging about weight loss. I was kind of surprised because it felt like longer to me, although I’m not sure why. I can’t say I’ve actually missed writing about weight loss, but I have felt a little bit that not writing about it has caused me to become rather lackadaisical in my approach to weight loss. Basically, I’m not losing any weight. Well, let me correct that. I’ve lost about 4 pounds, but 4 pounds in 2 months? That’s hardly a weight loss success story.
Admittedly, I was primarily focused on training for my half marathon during those 2 months, and as my runs increased in distance, so did my hunger. I don’t think I went nuts with my eating, but I let more things slide than I should have because hey, I had just burned 1,000 calories running! What’s a little pizza compared to that? However, I am no longer training for a half marathon, nor am I running. In fact, I’ve run a total of THREE TIMES since my race on March 31. I’ve only exercised five times this whole month. That’s pathetic.
In summary, I’ve lost very little weight and done very little exercise.
So what’s going on here? Laziness. Lack of discipline. Apathy.
All of that stops. NOW.
I weighed 174.4 this morning. That means that I only have 19 pounds to lose to get to my goal of 155. Nineteen pounds is NOTHING. I am so close! There is no reason I can’t be at my goal weight by the end of July. To do that, I need to lose a little over 6 pounds a month. 6 pounds is not a lot. It’s a very doable goal, and I’m going to reach it.
No more excuses. Only results!
P.S. This is my 1000th post! Woohoo!
