Book: Enquiry by Dick Francis
Song: Fearless by Taylor Swift
Haven't done a Wednesday Weigh In for awhile, mostly due to the fact that I've gained and lost the same few pounds (aka been stuck on a plateau) for the past three months or so?
What to do, what to do...
I've been so pleased with my progress up to this plateau, that part of me was willing to rest on my still curvy laurels and just be happy. After all, 60 pounds in 8 months is nothing to sneeze at.
But, I want more. I need more.
So, I set a goal. Last week I decided I wanted to lose 10 pounds by my birthday next month. 10 pounds in six weeks. Doable, right? Daunting in light of the plateau I've been on.
But, I always do better when I have a goal to shoot at, and I've just been letting myself drift the past few weeks, so it was time to shape up. Literally.
Crank up the speed on the treadmill, change things up with riding the exercise bike and try some strength exercises. Cut back on the little things I've added to my diet that I don't really need. (Might explain the plateau, right?)
Result? Down two pounds this week. Yay! So now I have 8 lbs to lose in five weeks.
I would love to hit a major milestone at the same time I hit a major milestone. :)
