After a bazillion weeks (41) of Shedding My Pirate Booty, I feel like I am losing momentum. Not just because the scale is moving slowly, but because I am getting content. I am so close to my original goal weight and I have seen the positive changes that I am not pushing as hard as I was.
Every week I vow to step up my exercise, because I have zero desire to drop down to 1200 calories a day. This week I failed again to workout as I intended. It was still better than last week though.
Now that we are on vacation this week, I know that my food intake will probably increase and I'll have more splurges than usual. I won't have excuses to avoid the gym, so I need to make 3 gym days happen this week. My exercise stats are just upsetting.
Week Forty-One Results:
Calories Burned Exercising: 1964
Net Calories Consumed: 9879/9450
Weight Lost: -2.5 lbs, -62.5 lbs total
Current Weight: 165.5 lbs
I'm very pleased with the drop on the scale, but in my stubborn brain I think it's just not good enough to get where I want to be by the one year mark. It's nearly 10 weeks away. Ahhhhh! I need to lose more like 2.5 a week, not every other week!
So help me on my way. Yell at me on social media to go to the gym. Stalk my food diary on My Fitness Pal and tell me to stop with all the chocolate. I have goals people!
I know I will get there even if it's not on my ideal timeline, but I'm a perfectionist. I guess I should also recognize that I procrastinate too. I mean look how long it took me to get healthy.
Here's to sweating a lot, and not eating everything. See you next week.
