Last week was a GOOOOOOD weight loss week,the previous was a not so good week. I'm learning to go with the flow here. I'm so close to reaching my 10% goal. I get my key chain and first charm then. It's funny how a trinket can really motivate you, but I WANT that key chain, bad. It's a symbol of determination and more importantly, a reminder to me, that I set a goal, didn't quit, but rather, I ACCOMPLISHED it! Remember, I used to be a quitter.
So, during my great week, my partner bought me a bike I've been wanting for years. I got a PINK CADILLAC bike. Very retro, very 50's and I LOVE it. It has no speeds, all powered by ME. This means even more exercise. Let me tell you, when I took her for a spin, my legs felt like jello when I got off that bike. I hurt the next day as well. I forgot how much FUN riding a bike is, but I also forgot how much WORK goes into it as well. My online inspiration Sheryl has inspired me to ride a bike again, so thanks "Bitchcakes!"
I'm less than 85 days till my daughter's wedding now. So I am really feeling crunch time here. I've upped my veggie intake, decreased my carbs a bit, starting eating oatmeal for breakfast again, only this time, REAL oatmeal, not the pre-packed kind. All this and the results were a great weight loss, 3.2 lbs. Last night was a girls night out, LOTS of drinking and I ate half a burger, a BIG burger...so needless to say, today will be an ALL veggie day, to get me back on track. My goal was to be a certain weight by the 28th, I am DETERMINED to be there. It's a great starting number for March. In a perfect world, I'm hoping to loose 10 lbs in March AND in April, and hopefully 8 in May by the wedding. That is a BIG order and will require lots of determination and hard work. IF I don't meet those goals, but still do the work, then I will accept it and whatever weight I am the day of the wedding, will be a BIG improvement from where I started.
February has been an excellent month, much personal growth and for that I am very grateful. I'm looking forward to the challenges in March...one bite at a time, one decision at a time!
