The Final Stretch

I was just thinking about how far I’ve come and how far I still want to go.  The contest is almost over, but my journey has just begun.  I need to start formulating a plan to keep up on this weight loss and exercise.

Foot Injury

Not sure what happened, but my foot is swollen and inflamed.  This is going to make going to the gym tough, but I’ll keep my spirits up.  Weight loss is still going pretty well, so no complaints.

Holiday Weekend

So it is the Monday after a holiday weekend and I’m feeling pretty good.  I wasn’t perfect with my eating or exercise, but I did pretty well.  And most importantly, I forgive myself for any missteps I may have had and am ready to move on.  I’m feeling strong and happy!

Making Better Choices

I’ve been trying to put more focus on making better choices.  I just keep reminding myself that better fuel is going to make me feel better.  So far things are going alright.  I continue to lose weight, which is really the main point, so things are good.

My eating has been a little erratic lately.  Some days I am so good and some days I’m not so good.  My goal is to work on eating well all the time.  I have definitely incorporated more vegetables into my diet, but still need to eliminate some of the less desirable foods.  I guess it’s always a work in progress.

Hanging In There

The scale is still moving in the right direction.  It might not be moving quickly, but moving none the less.  So I’ll just keep on doing what I am doing and hope to see a pretty good loss this month.
