Wow, Weigh-In Wednesday has really taken off! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone’s posts on their health and fitness goals for 2015, plus I’ve gotten some great advice! I got a bit of a late start on my health resolution, beginning about three weeks after the New Year. So far, I’m not sure how I feel about my progress, especially where working out is concerned. Nonetheless, I’m always a fan of a good recap list:
I started counting calories using the MyFitnessPal app
I have my breakfast and lunch portions under control
I’ve been slightly more active than the previous month
I still have seconds every Sunday at dinner
I’m 50/50 on late night snacking
I still need to be more active
The Bottom Line
Instead of being down on myself for all of the things I didn’t do well, I’m taking this opportunity to tell you that in the last 19 days, I’ve lost 9.2 lbs. To tell you the truth, I’m shocked by that number; it really wasn’t that hard for me. But unfortunately, I don’t feel any different yet. This is the point where I usually give up because despite all of my effort, mentally and physically, I don’t notice a difference. But today I’m rejuvenated and more motivated than ever by seeing some success!
So my goals for the next month are the same as last month, but I’m going to be more specific.
- No seconds at Sunday dinner [for real this time]
- Be active at least twice a week, every week
What are your health and fitness ‘wins’ and ‘losses’ this month?
