Fitness Challenge week 46 and 47

Well here I am at week 47. Let me start out saying I have been busy otherwise I would have been posting more regularly….sorry everyone!! Now on to the post….

I am not anywhere close to my goal but I am learning a lot about my health. In the last 47 weeks and even before that when I first started, I started to do this because I was having the beginnings of major issues…anywhere from asthma all the way to high cholesterol. I was not in good shape and could not go and do things with my kids that I wanted to.  I mean I was not even 40 years old and I felt like I was falling apart. I weighed almost 190 pounds and every joint felt it. I was at the heaviest I had ever been in my life. So I started on this journey with the decision not so much to lose weight as to get healthy again.

And it seems that I have.

I have not lost as much weight as I would like to and in the process I have gained some back and lost it again. In total I have lost 13 pounds since I started. I know that does not seem like a lot but considering I really did not go into this to lose weight but to get healthy, to me, it is a lot. It’s a lot because I have kept it off. I did not gain it back after losing it. It shows if you change your diet you will not only lose weight but will regain your health. Yes I know I should not tout any huge successes because commercial weight loss programs will “guarantee you that you will lose 50 pounds in 6 months or your money back (insert sarcasm)” but to me this is a huge success. Not in terms of weight loss but in terms of me taking my body, my health, and my life back.

I am going to continue doing just as I have and will continue to update my progress. I will change myself the better and teach my children to live better and healthier. I don’t want to leave them sooner then I have to and I want them to have a long, healthy, enjoyable life. The more I learn the more they learn. Maybe by changing my path, I have change theirs for the better.

Success is not the absence of failure; it’s the persistence through failure.

Monthly Weight Check in 8/26/16

Sorry about being late…I’ve been running a bit behind on my posts. This should have been done yesterday but life gets in the way sometimes….lol!!

This month I did better then I did last month! I still did not reach that number that I want for last month but you know what….I still did amazing!! I went from 178.8 to my current weight of 176.6. So with that being said, even though I did not get to my goal for this month I’m not upset. Because I am making positive progress….because I am losing it….because I know I will do it!!! I am taking my successes and celebrating them. I am going to enjoy the fact that I am able to breathe better because of the endurance I am building up. I am loving the fact of the way my clothes fit and the fact I am able to get into clothing that has not fit me for at least a year. Here’s to looking better, feeling better, and enjoying life!!!

With all this being said I am not increasing my goal this month. I am going to keep it at last month’s goal. Why you ask? Because I need to get to that…I am doing it but it is going to take a little bit more.

 

My next monthly goal September 30, 2016 – 173 pounds     current weight: 176.6

Quotes 8/5/16

Getting back on the wagon

OK might not be the best time to say I am getting back on the wagon and continuing my journey to fitness considering we are going on a vacation next week. :O  But you know what….I have to put myself back on the right path sometime because there will always be something that comes up. Whether it be a trip, a get together, a night out, hanging out with the kids…etc. There will always be something no matter what you do. How you deal with it the day after is what matters. Does that mean after you have your fun that you are supposed to feel guilty afterwards and then go to extremes to say that you are making up for what you did? No! What it means is that you acknowledge the fact you made some not so wise choices and move on. It means you know that what you did was not good for you and that not necessarily won’t do it again but will be more attuned to what you are doing and might not do it exactly the same way.

So here we are starting almost at the beginning again. I have lost weight but no where near as much as I would like to. I will do it…here’s my stats to start all over again.

Fit Challenge week 1:

Height: 5′ 7″

Age: 38

Weight : 181.5

My bust: 38 in

My waist: 32 in

My Hips: 38 in

 

Along with the final goal above I am going to hold myself a little more accountable. I am going to set myself smaller goals during this time. This is to help me keep focused not only on the larger goal but to help me stay on track. This is where my Monthly check in will happen:

Goal weight by July 28, 2016:  176

 

As I said above, I am going on vacation next week…I might not be able to post my weekly check in but I will definitely be keeping up with everything. My next post will be in 2 weeks. Maybe I’ll have something good to show 🙂
