Well so far today I woke up an entire hour earlier than usual. Yup, I was up at 4 AM, awesome. Then the scale decided it didn't like me and gave me 125.2, which on the WW scale would be 124.8 which is exactly where I was last week. So I took my measurements hoping that would cheer me up. Not, not so much. Exactly the same as last month. I know, I know, at least the numbers haven't gone up, but I have been working sooooooo hard! So then my coffee maker decided to crap out on me. I didn't want to drag the kids all the way to Dunkin Donuts so I figured I would just run to Quick Chek. Well those mother effers, wouldn't you know it, they don't have French Vanilla??? I was forced to get hazelnut. I freaking hate hazelnut. And to top it all off it started pouring when I pulled in my driveway so the kids and I had to run to the house. Today is just no bueno and it's only 7:30. Really hope this gets better.
Okay, on a more positive note, I am much stronger and have more endurance than I did a month ago. You should have seen me in kickboxing yesterday. When we were doing the sidekicks, I could literally kick myself in the face, that's how high I was able to get my legs! So that's a plus. My ab muscles are becoming more prominant, though I still have a nice layer of fat over them, but they are definately more visible. I have been able to maintain my weight and not feel deprived. I have gone out and enjoyed myself and not seen any kind of signifcant gain, and what little I may have put on I was able to take back off. I am eating vegetables every day. I am actually drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day if not more. Oh and yesterday, I did NOT go for my FiberOne brownie as soon as I finished lunch like usual. I was actually able to save it for later! I always grab it as soon as I'm done with lunch, but not yesterday. Those are all the good things I have been able to accomplish in the last 30 days.
I should probably try to not be so hard on myself. I've come a long way. I think I want to challenge myself a little more though. I need to come up with something for August. I don't know if I want it to be an exercise challenge or some sort of food challenge. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe try Paleo for the month of August, or try not to eat anything processed, or maybe try a new fruit or veg every day? I need some input guys! Well, I need to go actually do stuff now. 36 hours til 311!!!
