YAY! It makes me a little nervous to be too happy about a weight loss like this. Because it seems like every time that I celebrate a success, I then have a month-long backslide. But I don’t think that is going to happen. This feels like the start of something big, not the end. My success this time around has given me more motivation; I don’t feel that “ah, I can celebrate now.” Intsead, I feel like this is the tip of the iceberg, that it’s time to get serious about this and lose some friggin’ weight.
Or lose more weight.
I structured the weekend to force myself to get some exercise. It was a long, three-day weekend, and E worked the entire weekend. Normally, the kiddos and I would stay around the house, which would allow me to be a lazy bum all weekend. I wanted to avoid that this weekend, though, so I came up with plans for every day. On Saturday, we went walking around a local mall. Sunday, we went out to the Farmer’s Market and shopping at the local massive book store and our grocery store. And yesterday we went out to Coors Field to see the Colorado Rockies beat up on the St. Louis Cardinals.
Monday was by far the day I got the most exercise. We take the light-rail train from Highlands Ranch into Union Station, then walk from there to the ballpark. And then walk all the way around the ballpark, including up a bunch of stairs to our seats. Then we walk back to the train. I did this with our daughter (who weighs around 20 pounds) on my back. I was so sore! And so wiped out. Definitely got the exercise I needed.
I’ve also been watching what I eat. E and I are trying to do Weight Watchers together. She’s doing a fantastic job; I’m not doing quite that well, but I am definitely keeping better track of what I eat, and either reducing how much I eat, or at least making better choices. And that came through in my weight for last week! Huzzah!
I’m going to work on setting new goals, since I missed all my goals I set earlier this year. 🙂
