Tomorrow I have class most of the day and a test, so I probably won't be able to get on. And I feel bad because last week I wasn't able to get on. But I wanted to let you know how Spring Fling Challenge is going.
First of all, I have a question for everyone. I was asked a few weeks ago to ask you all this, but I kept forgetting to! To the person I promised to ask for, I am really sorry it kept slipping my mind. So the question I have for you, is do you have any good up beat music you like to listen to while working out? It was suggested that having great tunes for workouts would help keep the motivation. So if you have any good songs, let me know, and I'll pass them on. :)
So, for my challenge, going into week 8, well last week I was sick, and my throat was so sore I couldn't talk, and it literally hurt to breathe and swallow. So I ate more ice cream than one should really indulge in. I will defend my right to have done so TOOTH AND NAIL! ;) lol My throat felt so happy every time I took a bite. :) My scales said "Nana nana na NA!" 3 lbs up again.
But this week, I'm back down. WHEW. But just about where I was two weeks ago. :( I can't seem to get a head. BUUUTTT, don't let this fool you! :)
I had to take in another two inches in my pants! And I can actually see dimpling in my stomach! It actually looks not so pleasant, but it means that the fat under the skin is decreasing. *Happy Dance* *Happy Dance* My shirts that were snug before now hang loosely. :) So, my scales do not show much weight loss at all, just over 5 pounds in the 7 weeks done so far, but I can't focus on that. I am losing size, and I have to be happy about that. :) The weight will come.
Because of this, I'm trying not to beat myself up over the fact that I only got in jogging on the spot twice last week, half an hour each time, and then one day I got about six minutes of walking on the spot before I couldn't even move. So I took the rest of the week to relax, and it paid off. I'm starting to feel better.
I still have a lot of training and work to do over the next week and a half, so I still may be very MIA in blog land, but I'm going to try to slowly catch up. It might only be a blog a day, but I will try. :) I really want to get back up to speed. :) Thank you all for your support as I tackle my weight, eating habits, exercise habits, and house work.
Oh, and my house!??? Literally, someone could drop by still and I wouldn't freak. If company called and said they'd like to come for a few days visit, I feel I could have the place ready, top to bottom in less than half an hour, if the dishes are done. ;) Add ten minutes if I had to do those too. :) I even decluttered more again today! I'll have to stop soon or I'll have given away all we own and we'll have nothing left to sit on. LOL I don't know what got under my bottom, but I'm loving having less and less stuff in the house. Less to organize, tidy, dust. Just is great. :)
I hope you are all doing well on your Spring Fling Challenges. Whether they look like you planned from the beginning, of they've molded and changed like mine did, I hope you're still feeling proud of the steps you're making! :) Some weeks are small steps, some may be backward steps, but it's okay, that's the journey of everything else we do in life. :)
