Where to begin? I know it has been 10 days or so since my last post, you know, the one I so bravely called “Nothing But Excuses.” Yeah… about that…
Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I have had to put my twice weekly sessions with Sadist on a freeze for the time being. This was certainly not what I was wanting to do, but things are what they are.
The very next day I ended up taking my daughter to the doctor to find out she had the flu. I kept myself out of the gym last week to keep from spreading the virus since I had been exposed. This week has, so far, been more of the same with such little energy reserves to head to gym at the end of the day.
Despite, or maybe in spite of, the past week, I still had the diet to keep track of (which was easy with all the germs floating around!). While I was no diet saint, I do nibble my sweets periodically, I tried to stay true to the “eat less crap” lifestyle I have been adapting to, and it has worked.
My progress this month is below. I was not able to get all of the measurements by myself, but those I was able to get left me, honestly, agog.
As of today, my weight is 203.6 pounds. I am still 33 pounds over where I want to be by the end of this year, but as of today, I am 20 pounds closer to that mark. I am a mere 4 pounds from where I want to be on my 43 birthday. I can’t lie, this made my heart sing today.
My measurements (again, that I could take by myself) continued to drop. By my math, it appears I lost another 10 inches this past month, plus 6 pounds.
