Excuse my French... but FUUUUUUCKKK! In the past FOUR months I've gone from -38lbs to -45lbs.
I know that is still good. But still. Four months... 7lbs. My biggest setback was injuring my knee (in heels at work, ugh!) in September, thinking it was just a minor thing, I kept working out on it, making any kind of intense cardio unbearable. In November I started physical therapy on my knee. It's a ton better now, but not quite where it needs to be to do what I want to do.
I went on two little trips during that time, not to mention birthday celebrations. A whole lot of excuses for not tracking every morsel of food into MyFitnessPal app. I don't even know how I've let January slip past me. My scale is broken, but I know how I feel when I'm losing weight. I don't feel that way. When I start feeling that way again, I'll bother messing with the scale, ha. In any case, I know I need to go back to being incredibly anal about my intake and logging everything on MyFitnessPal. It's what works for me. And the lack of understanding of intake is where I see so many people fail when they have the exercise component down. I have exercise down.
In January I did Chalene Johnson's 30-Day PUSH Challenge. I set 10 goals, and a sub-goal (quarter goal aka by April 30th) be down ANOTHER 40lbs. Ha. I just KNOW I lost January, so I have to go back to what I know works for me. Even though I can't go as hard in the gym, I've been going for longer durations.
Three months... I can do it! I promise, my next bloggy blog will not be about health.
