i missed it be this much!!! (4lbs)
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
So, today being the final day of October, I get on the scale to see how far off I am from my goal to lose 10 pounds in Oct.
Well, I am a little disappointed to say I missed it be a full 4 pounds.
However, with the last few days, no walking, and eating alot of unhealthy foods brought by well meaning friends and neighbors, I am really surprised I didnt have a gain.
I stayed the same as last week and that was good enough for me.
Cause I had totally expected a gain.
But new goal has been set for November and I am determined, bad weather be damned...to make this goal.
I am back to my healthy eating and I will walk, regardless of the cold, rain, slush, ice, etc, etc.
The next two months will be a test for me I know.
With the holidays approaching.
But, I say let them come, I am not scared and I know my mind is back on the right track and my feet will be soon too.
This week has really taught me a lesson. Outside forces will tempt us, and stress and lack of sleep and even just the togetherness that eating can bring in times of sadness and loss, or times of happiness and joy.
I asked someone why is it, here in our region, most especially, that people bring unhealthy greasy chicken and sweets to feed people with when someone dies???
Why doesnt anyone bring a fruit or veggie platter???
I guess its comfort food, fast to get to in grocery store deli's....
One of the older sisters and her husband, are both diabetics, she just had her gallbladder out, isnt really terribly overweight, but doesnt exercise at all and they are sitting there eating this greasy fried chicken and mayonnaise based salads and sweets.
I sat there shaking my head and then asking myself, is there where you want to be in 20 years????
It is not. So, I went back to my fruit and veggies and protein and water and set aside the sandwiches and other calorie laden foods.
I went and walked an hour, in the cold rain....didnt really feel like I had accomplished much at the end, but at least I did it.
So, now its just the fact to be faced. Cold weather has arrived, days of walking at 6 am, will maybe be pushed back an hour, or two, or three.
And walking in shorts and short sleeves will be replaced by bulky sweats and headwear.
But I will stil be walking and focusing alot more on at home workouts.
So, everyone have a nice Halloween and a nice Wednesday and watch out for ghouls and goblins bearing candy.
