Day 298-301 on the Journey!!

Sunday, May 04, 2014

Hey Spark-friends,

Just have to give an update on the journey. As I said in my last blog on Thursday I still had my Focus T25 Speed 1.0 video to do. I'm happy to report that I did do it and not only that but I nailed it. I have officially nailed my first T25 video. I pushed through to the end like a champ emoticon . On Friday morning I did two videos, Ab Intervals and Lower Focus. Guess what folks I nailed Lower Focus TOO!!! Can you believe it? emoticon I didn't nail Ab Internals unfortunately but I made it which was a step up from my last attempt where I barely made it so emoticon for progress. On Saturday I then did my Cardio video. I wanted an improved attempt here too but unfortunately it didn't happen. Though I nearly nailed it the last time I only made it on Saturday. I'm not discouraged though just got to keep pushing.

On the food front I was alright on Thursday but unfortunately I went over my calories both on Friday and Saturday. On the upside though I tracked EVERYTHING I ate on Friday even though I knew I was going over my calories. This is a major improvement for me because usually I stop tracking when I realize that I'm over. I then made this profound statement about it to my accountability partner, "I'm not interested in evading perfectly normal behaviour anymore. The fact is I will not eat perfectly everyday and I finally realize that. "

I then went over yesterday because we went out with our Bible Study group yesterday evening and unfortunately I had, had too much during the day and the plate at dinner was HUGE so even though I only had half I still went over my calories.

On one hand I'm saying this is normal and acceptable as long as it is infrequent behavior but on the other hand I'm wondering in the back of my mind if I'm starting my cycle of self-sabotage. I've realized that anytime that I make progress like I've been making recently for some reason I start to get lax with my discipline and undo my efforts. It's so bad that even my husband noticed. Yesterday I asked him if he couldn't congratulate me on how much slimmer I looked and he said he was going to but decided against it because he'd realized that when he'd done that in the past I then began to overeat. WOW!! What a slap in the face and well needed wake up call.

Anyway I decided NOT this time. I will continue to push and come hell or high water my goal is coming. emoticon emoticon

    not too many pats on the back I can give myself but one is that I do track almost everything very detailed all the time. It is so so so important. Sometimes I am sick and I wish so bad I could get the calorie count more under control but I am at least moving much more to compensate. The weight is slooooooowly but surely coming off and I look forward to hearing more good news from you!!!
