Well, we’ve made it two months!
I wanted to write a big long happy entry, but I’m not sure that would work. It would seem a new routine I tried at the end of last week was bad for my back. I’ve been trying to ignore the pain and claimed it was muscle strain. It’s looking more and more like a disk issue. It hurts to sit, stand or lay on my side. I can lay flat on my back- YAY. SO let’s do a quick recap shall we?
In two months I have:
Lost 6 lbs
Lost 13.5 inches off my entire body
Gotten some form of exercise every day
Completed a few mini goals
Gained a few muscles. Rawwwr
The weight loss is no where near where I wanted it to be. I’m losing slowly or not at all. It’s frustrating, but NSV keeps me going. My body is changing every day. I can see a small amount of muscle in my arms when I flex, I have less of an arm ‘wing’ when my arms are at my sides. My clothes feel roomy or just plain loose. I’ve worn jeans and skinny jeans for the first time in 3 years. It’s been awesome!
So, what am I looking for in the next upcoming months:
I hope to increase the weight loss
Be more physically active
Find and share tons of recipes
Connect more with my followers, and gain a few mote 😛
Connect with other folks in MN looking to get healthier!
Oh, weigh in Monday. I didn’t lose anything. Oh well
Honestly I;m just glad I didn’t see a giant leap on the scale. With power being out and having stretched our budget thin to buy some home things- we ate like crap.
I ate fast food and cheap food. I take full responsibility for that. I was in a lot of pain, we didn’t have power and, if I’m being honest. I was too tired to care. It happens. I didn’t gain. I need my back to feel better so I can get back on the exercise wagon. Unless I feel better this week, I will drop out of the last 10 days of the challenge. I’ll be too far behind. We’ll see.
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
