Hey guys! I made it over a hump. I reached 4 months of exercising!!!
Month four was amazing! I stayed consistent with eating and I had less slip ups than normal. I think I can officially say that I have enough control to eat a cheat meal and jump back on the healthy wagon. This month I participated in a two month online training program called No Waist November and I was only allowed to cheat on Thanksgiving. Giving up bread, cheese, and all the other goodies weren’t as bad as I thought and the great news is that I lost 7lbs! Overall I have lost 20lbs! I am very surprised and happy because it is hard for me to lose weight even though my body composition changes. I don’t use the scale to track my progress, but learning that I lost so much is very rewarding.
Throughout this month, I learned that I. LOVE. TO. SWEAT. It may seem gross to some people, but I love to see and feel the sweat coming down my face. It’s a perfect indicator that I am working my butt off. Sweating let’s me know that I am this much closer to reaching new fitness goals and changing my body. I love it!
Month four was MY month. Not only did I learn that I lost 20lbs, I took two pair of exercise pants out of retirement because they were too small; now they fit perfectly. Talk about excited! I am also able to get back into some of my old jeans that were way too tight for comfort. I am killing the fitness game! I’m SO proud of how far I have come. Now it’s time for me to go to the max so I am able to lift heavier, run longer, and sweat even harder. My six month update will be here in no time and I absolutely can’t wait to compare my progress pics.
I hope that I am inspiring people along the way and motivating people to become a better YOU. Exercising and eating right is becoming a lifestyle change more and more for me and I don’t think I want to go back. No matter what size you are, YOU CAN DO IT.
All caught up? Here is my Month five update here. Enjoy 😊
