Starting Week 16 and Feeling GREAT!

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

I have been very very consistent with eating a healthy diet and have also been averaging 30 minutes a day of exercise. I have only progressed to 4 pound dumbbells, but the small gain in strength really shows up in my day to day chores. It is a lot easier for me to carry in groceries, carry laundry and carry things up the stairs. Last week I started doing some lower body strength exercises. I am struggling a lot with those because of balance issues and arthritis, but they are getting a little easier each time I do them. My goals are focused on behaviors rather than pounds, but I am hoping for a consistent loss of at least 5 pounds a month. Sticking to a healthy diet through the holiday battlefield from October through New Years is at the top of my priority and I am doing a lot of self talk every day to strengthen my resolve. Feeling GREAT and am thrilled with my slow but steady progress.

    emoticon slow and steady is a great way to continue with your journey, instead of looking for huge chances in a short amount of time. Slow progress brings long lasting results for many.

    Wow ........ What inspiration!! ... Love this and I also like that you are focusing on behaviors rather than the usual: pounds ...... Good habits and healthy lifestyle lead to one good thing after the other and you are already seeing results!! ......... emoticon
