Week 4 and chugging along
Monday, October 08, 2012
Okay, so I'm a part of the BLC20 and we are 4 weeks in. Now for an update as to how it is going thus far. Well, I'm losing. I am making better choices AND logging my food. Is it completely accurate? No, not at all as some things I must just wing but I'm trying. In the past I'd a just said forget it. Tracking the sodium has been interesting and I still struggle with veggies. Honest truth - I don't like many and I tire of salads. So I'm still a work in progress. As I mentioned, I weighed myself this morning but 'official' weigh-in isn't till Wednesday so my short-term goal is to keep it here. I will have lost a total of 4 lbs since we started. Of course these last 10 are the hardest but I am also fearful as I know 'maintenance' has eluded me in the past. I will have to get with those who are there and have been successful to help me figure it out for the long haul but I guess I'll not worry myself into gaining by thinking about it now. I gotta get there first. But is is close, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
My exercise has been up and down. I do know I need to push a little harder. Add a little more weight on that bar when doing squats or dead rows. Burn those muscles. Some days I just don't want to. But, I do know it will help so I gotta push.
So as the saying goes, slow and steady wins the race. And just think, it has only taken me to this round (3rd by the way) to get my head really wrapped into it and make the necessary changes.
