In the past two weeks, since my last weigh in, I lost 3.4lbs!!!! Holy moly I did not think that would happen! I was hoping to come out even after all the cake/ice cream, and food on the road, and party/vacation food. When we got home from my grandparents I made sure to get right back on the healthy eating track. I exercised every day and probably underrate a little bit: it was SO HOT all I wanted to eat was salad, smoothies, and fruit. So maybe that helped. My total loss in two months is 24.2lbs! I was hoping to be at 30lbs in two months but I am not complaining about 24.2 at all. Especially because the past two weeks were rough on the diet front.
Last month I wrote down a few goals for this month. Looks like I sort of accomplished two and missed the other two. The goals I consider accomplished were to start running: I went running once. So that’s a start right?? ;) The other was to ride 10 miles on my bike. This one I accomplished on Saturday which technically was one day after the month ended but I’m counting it anyway. The two I missed were to have 5 workouts a week – birthday party prep and vacation prep/vacation really made it tough to accomplish this goal. I’m finding that 4 workouts a week is a little more realistic with 5 being a bonus. We’ll see how this month goes. The one I definitely didn’t hit was to lose 15lbs this month. I only lost 10 this month. But really I shouldn’t say “only” I am really proud of the 10lbs I did lose. So reflecting on this past month I am completely satisfied with how it all went down.
So now lets talk about goals for this month. I’m still hoping for 15lbs this month so I will make that a goal. I continue to have a desire to run so my goal is to run 3 times this month – I know that isn’t a lot but its a start and with the weather being so hot and the fact that I refuse to run indoors its the most I’m committing to. I hope to continue riding my bike and instead of my goal being for one ride I will keep track and do a monthly miles goal of 25 miles. I am really only able to get on my bike when Preston is with his dad and because I don’t know how much that will be this month I don’t want to over commit myself. My last goal for this month is to get more sleep!! My goal is to get 8+ hours at least 5 nights a week. So in bullet form:
- Lose 15lbs this month
- Run 3 times this month
- Ride 25 miles cumulative this month
- 8+ hours of sleep at least 5 nights/week
