|Proof that I lost 3.4! I am officially 165.4!|
I am 1.8 pounds away from 50 pounds total!!!!!! AHHH!!! 1.8! I can do that! I got this!!! It was an amazing feeling today knowing that I can do it. I have to keep to the points. I have to track EVERYTHING. Every last BLT (bite, lick or taste). From coffee to olive, it all gets written down. Also, I don't NEED carbs in everything! Tyson 3 point chicken is my new hero! :-)
I feel SO good.
This is EXACTLY the kind of boost I need to keep me feeling motivated. Especially since running is not going as well as I had hoped. This morning I got up, ran for 1 mile and then had to walk the rest. 30 minutes total, but not the best. I decided that after school I would run again. I tried again to run a mile, but alas, I made it a total of 8 minutes jogging before my chest couldn't handle it any more and I had to walk. Buah... this 5K is not going to be easy!!
However, this week was an amazing week. I haven't felt so healthy or good about my eating choices. AND, I showed a lot of willpower. All week. Focusing on my goal, REALLY thinking things through, knowing that even a BITE gets written down, kept me focused and on track.
I am nervous though. This next weekend is a conference weekend and those are hard for me. So, I will start planning through it now. And I will save my flex points. And I will be texting those people in my life that keep me on track. And, perhaps I will write the #50 on my hand so I can continue to think about the fact that I am only 1.8 POUNDS AWAY!!!
So, that's that. 3.4 in one week after a LONG plateau! Feels good.
