As I approached day 30 it became (more) obvious that in order to succeed in this 90-day challenge I am going to need to make some changes to what I am doing now. Since cutting food is out of the question (hey, I love food too much), there is going to need to be exercise. It is now more important than ever to start going for 5K walks again. This should become easier to make time for now that the hockey season is nearing an end as I won't be able to use the arena job as an excuse.
Since almost every day has been a battle, I decided that I should go back and look at the beginning of my journey to rediscover how hard it was then. I mean way back to 2012 when I first decided to lose weight. The first month was a struggle, but I made it through and lost 10 pounds that month. Don't forget, I had a lot more to lose back then so losing 4.5 pounds this month is great considering I have a lot less to lose these days.
That's right, I lost 4.5 pounds in my first 30 days and it's great! Considering I thought I had ruined my progress with a bad week leading up to day 30, I am so happy with this result! I have 60 days left and I need to challenge myself to be better and get my ass in gear!
Do you wonder why you joined this 90-day challenge? Are you seeing your results but wondering if anyone else has noticed?
^This^ is exactly how it happened when I started. I did notice the changes, then my coworkers, then the people I only saw occasionally. I'm not going to lie, it's fabulous when someone notices, it is motivation to keep up the fight! You can do it, you can all do it! Yes it's hard sometimes, but if it was easy then everyone would do it, right?
