Keeping My Mind on the Goal!!!

Alright, even though I have lost 30 lbs, this past week I put on 1.2 lbs which I'm not too worried about because I know this week I will do much better, but it does make me think that I need to work harder!  Not only do I have my Color Run goal, but I also have made another goal for myself and it is to be at 163 lbs by the end of September which means I will need to loose close to 5 lbs!  I know that I can do this no problem, I just need to keep my mind on the goal!!!

What I'm about to explain isn't an excuse because I know that I could have had a better week, I'm just telling you all just because I want to:)  The hubby was gone for the whole week last week and I HATE when he leaves, especially for a week!  It makes it super hard to fall asleep at night, so I "treated" myself to some wine on Wednesday and Thursday(which I didn't need at all!)  Then this past weekend, I went out to eat twice and drank 2 nights in a row!!!  That's ALOT of drinking in 1 week!  I'm putting a stop to this now before it continues and completely derails my weight loss journey.

 Sometimes, I get a little worried about this!

 During the summer, I would lift weights 3 times a week, but since school started I can only fit in twice a week!

After a workout, if my muscles are a little sore then I know that I killed the workout!  I need to keep these quotes in mind the rest of this week!

I will make better choices this week and do the very best I can in my workouts:)  This is my pledge for the rest of my weight loss journey.  This is a journey after all and there will be ups and downs.  I can't get down on myself for making a mistake because after all we are human!  I need to keep in mind that we need to get up again and try even harder:):)  My weight loss journey will really not end when I get to my goal, it will continue on for the rest of my life!  I, and for those of you who are on the same road as I am, will have to maintain your weight and watch what you eat and continue to exercise.  So, this is only the very start of what is to come.  I must except this and move on with a positive attitude that there will be times where I might fail in some way, but that doesn't mean that you stop and give up; you keep on going, try harder, and learn from your mistakes!  After all, this is exactly what I tell my students in my classroom, how do you learn?  You learn from making mistakes, but you need to make sure that you take something out of those mistakes and use them for your advantage in the future:)

Here's to continuing this journey and new chapter!!!!  I hope everyone enjoys their Tuesday!

Thanks for stopping by:):):):)

Until next time!!!!!!

  1. I hate it when my husband and I are apart! I left him this weekend for a trip to see my family and every second of the trip I wished he was there! Hang in there. You are doing great! 30lbs that is something to celebrate. You will get that lb off in no time. How often are you able to exercise?
