The 2 pound advantage

Well, after a very difficult 4-day weekend of fighting with myself over what foods to eat and what workouts to do, we had our weekly weigh-in at work.

And yes, I know, the title gives it away, but I lost 2 lbs. Technically 4 because I weighed myself before and after I put my clothes on and my clothes weigh almost 2 lbs. But since I am not allowed to take them off for our weigh in at work….

All that to say, I am most definitely in the 160’s. I have officially lost 12 lbs.

Excuse me, while I go do my happy dance in the corner.

In 3 months of exercising and dieting I have lost 12 lbs. A little depressing considering I have another 34 lbs to my goal weight. But only 32 to my prepregnancy weight.

At this rate, I should be about 12 lbs away by Christmas time.

Not sure how I feel about that right now.

On the agenda for this week is at least 3 miles of running around my neighborhood. At least 3 sessions of 30 Day Shred, and at least 2 hours of elliptical/cardio.

Sounds like a lot, right? Well, if I could make it a 6 lb. week, it would be totally worth it.

Yesterday, in Sunday school, we had a visitor who spoke about making your daily decisions with your long-term goal in mind. I keep thinking this is so true for almost any area of your life. Every day has to be a mass of consistent decisions to hit your long term goal, whether for your spiritual life or your health or your marriage relationship.

So here’s to making right decisions today to get me to my goals.
