Wow, it has been five whole months already!
This month has definitely flew by for me. I can’t believe that five months ago I kept saying that I can’t wait to see where I’ll be in 6 months and now I’m one month away from being there! This journey has given me a new love for exercising and making consistent healthier choices than bad choices. Like every month, I am seeing changes more than ever before. It’s nice to wake up every morning, look at my body, and actually smile and be proud of all the progress I’ve made.
One proud moment I celebrated this month is that I have a pair of work pants that I have tried on every few months to track my progress and I am so happy to say that I am now able to button them up with no problem! I can’t wait until March because by then those work pants will fit perfectly.
Although this month was okay, I still struggle at times on my journey. Some days I feel good and some days I feel like blah 😦 I did slack a lot with eating and exercising some weeks (Christmas and New Year )and I didn’t go as hard as I could. Now that I’ve made it this far I wanted to give myself a small weightloss goal along with my fitness goals to push myself harder since I am becoming a little complacent. I lost another 3lbs and I plan on losing 17 more by the end of April. I think this will be good for me because goals push you to go harder. I don’t like to give myself weight goals because I feel like its too much pressure, but I think a little pressure will be good for me when I feel like being lazy.
Overall, this month flew by for me and I could have done better but I’m not going to hang my head low. I’m going to hold my head up and keep on keeping on because I’VE GOT GOALS!
