Our step competition has really got me focused and on the ball. I love it. I won this week’s challenge by logging 84,212 steps! That’s an average of 5.25 miles a day. I had one day that I walked 8.12 miles. Yes, I’m patting myself on the back a bit here but I’m really proud of myself. It’s going in my victory journal. Last week I walked a total of 36.78 miles. If I average 35 miles a week that would be 1820 miles in a year and would definitely get me to Los Angeles (1700 miles away). Hopefully each week I can get my mileage number to rise higher and higher. Pair that with pool class and my tabata kick boxing and hooray for losing 5 pounds this week. Wrestling will be done for the boys in March which means I will have my nights back to do my workouts instead of finding workouts to do while I wait for them to get done with practice. Yippee!
I have a goal weight in mind by February 6th and I’m working hard to get to it. I have the magic number plastered in important places where I will see it constantly. I’m not going to be obsessed or upset if I don’t hit it and spiral into a fit of depression but it would be a super cool milestone so I’m trying with all my might. This weekend wasn’t easy. I was surrounded by temptation at every turn. Pizza, breadsticks, wings, birthday cake galore…but I came through pretty well and just keep plugging away. High protein, low carbs, wise choices, portion control. All keys to success and part of my 2014 resolutions. I hope your resolutions are still in play and you are working to make this a wonderful year. And if you fell off the wagon, it’s ok. Just climb back on. Don’t wait until Monday or next month or the summer. Do it now. You will be glad you did. Every day is a new chance.
