Welcome back to Wednesday Weekly Check-in. It has been an interesting week. I knew at some point things would level off and I would slow down on losing, it happens to all of us. Well, I reached this point. I still lost, but it was ounces not pounds, but I inched my way down another two pounds after all was said and done J So I’m good with this. One more pound to go and I’ll be down by ten J
I’m getting better at going up to my office to use the walking machine, which is a plus J We’ve had some rainy days as of late, but hubby and I did manage to get in a bike ride and a friend and neighbor and I also rode one day last week with the promise we need to do this more often. Hubby and I also took both male furbies for a walk, our female furbie is a bit older and doesn’t take long distance walks anymore.
I think the key to all of this is to get up and get moving more often. I’ve always been a firm believer in, “If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
I’m sad to say though I am trying to bounce back from a bit of stress that started this week off. I was way down on my calorie counts for a few days and hopefully I’m getting back on track. I will let you know how that works out at next week’s check in. I will say though, at least I didn’t head straight for the junk food so I guess that’s a plus.
I will say this lifestyle change is really helping me to open my eyes to a good many aspects of my life in general. It is helping me to redirect my focus on what is important in my life. I realize I need to worry less, stress way less, and focus where I need to without allowing outside distractions. I’ve asked a couple of people to ‘check me’ when I go to trying to fix problems I don’t create, because the truth of the matter is ‘fixing things’ is my nature and I need to go against this nature from here on out. Why, because I am allowing it to be my procrastination crutch and this is bad for me.
So, I guess all in all it has been a good week. I’m still friends with myfitnesspal, which is a good thing J I’m getting up and around more instead of always sitting behind the computer, which is another good thing. My goal for this next week is to not only set exercise goals and keep them, or eating goals and keep those too, but also set strong writing goals and focus focus focus on those. I am seeking a new balance over the course of this next week, something long overdue. So wish me luck!!!
Everyone have a lovely evening!!!
Blessings to all!!!
