Moving forward

Sunday, November 04, 2018

Well it has been awhile since I have written here. I have been plugging along, some weeks better than others. I have been competing in the 5% challenges since last winter in hopes of getting the scale moving down again. It finally did over the summer. WOO-HOO! At the start of the Fall challenge I was sooooo excited. If I reach my goal weight I will be below 180 for the first time in 20 years. This was a big motivator for me when the challenge started, but the scale didn't move and then I allowed life to get in the way.
The past 3 weeks I have been off plan, but thankfully my weight has not gone up. I went to go visit my son and had a week were I was unfocused, started to get back on track and got sick. I am starting to feel better. I have my weekly meals and snacks planned out and am going shopping later today. I don't know when I will get back into full exercise mode as it is still difficult to breathe, but I am hoping that by Tuesday or Wednesday I will be feeling well enough for some easy exercise.
I may not make my goal this challenge but I am determined to finish strong and get as close as I can so that in the next challenge I will be in the 170s.
I want to apologize if I let my teammates down. Please know it was not intentional and I will do my best to be as active as possible the second half of this challenge.

    You are headed in the right direction. Blogging helps you focus on your here and now, then plan for a better outcome. You can do it. What a thrill to hit 180 this year!
