So true, though sometimes you need a little reflection before moving on...and in saying that, there's been a couple of things playing on my mind during the last week...
I'm still getting my mind around it all. I'm still fighting with lazy Lisa who likes to lie on the lounge as soon as she gets home from work. If I just get straight into the exercise as soon as I get home, I'm fine. Once I sit down, that's it for the night.
I had lunch at Sizzler last Saturday, and I overate. I know that I could have made better choices whilst I was there, and I'm not beating myself up about it at all. I did fill my plate with leafy greens, but with potato skins and cheese bread and pesto pasta and dessert...it was way too much! It was my treat meal for the week, and I was back on the plan that night.
That's enough negativity...now to the good stuff.
Four weeks along...
I have shed 7kg of fat from my frame.
I have reduced my overall body measurements by 23cm.
I can walk one kilometre 1.15 minutes faster.
I am 9cm closer to touching my toes.
I have doubled the number of push ups I can do in a minute.
Those are the stats, but there have been other benefits...
I haven't had a sick day at all this month! My constant migraines have all but disappeared. Obviously my unhealthy lifestyle was making me ill, and I've made significant steps in rectifying that.
I'm not as uncomfortable driving our second car because my belly isn't touching the steering wheel anymore!
Seth tells me that it's easier to have a piggy back ride because his legs aren't spread as wide around my waist and hips...that statement alone makes it all very worth while!
Food for thought...
During every diet I've ever attempted, I've talked about the amount of weight I've "lost". Time to change that mindset. Losing something implies that you might find it again. I don't want to find it again. I want it gone forever...and it will be! So with these four weeks behind me, I can honestly say that I am proud of myself. This journey isn't over and I'm going to keep on looking forward!
What is it that keeps you motivated and looking to the future?
