So, today is my 5 month Sparkaversary. It's been an amazing 5 months and I feel so much better. I feel so much healthier. I still have a lot of work to do, but I've come so far.
I have to admit. I've slacked a bit on the healthy eating the last month or so. I don't plan on making that a habit, but I'm glad I haven't completely given up. I haven't had a Coke or drink with sugar in it for 5 months! I have stopped eating Flaming Hot Cheetos, which were a huge problem for me. I've stayed active and continued to get stronger and workout often. I have gotten a little lax on logging on every day and eating as healthy as I can.
I took the kids to the pool the other day and I put on a bathing suit that was too small to wear when I bought it. I hated that it was an XL and didn't fit, but this year, it fit great. I had my daughter take a couple of photos.
my legs are still kind of big, and I can see that I need to keep going on this healthy journey of mine, but I was so amazed. I look like a completely different person than I was 5 months ago. I'm not entirely upset by how I look this Summer. Last Summer I was miserable. This Summer, I feel so much better.
This month I only lost a total of 3.4 pounds, but I've remained steady on the working out. Some days it's hard. Really hard. It seems like I struggled to finally get down to a huge goal of mine which is, the 100's. On Wednesday, my usual weigh day, I was almost there, but not quite. I was 200.2. Today for my 5 month, I weighed again and measured, and there it finally was. One-derland!
Now that I'm in the midst of Summer (well for us school aged children mamas) I think it's time to get back into it. Instead of the 40% I've been giving the last 2 months, I need to ramp it back up to at least 90%.
As far as measurements, everything stayed the same except for a 1 inch loss in my hips. I can tell I'm about to be in a size 14, which I am very happily looking forward to.
