This morning I was down .4 lbs. This felt like a measly .4 lbs, to be honest. I have been up and down the same 2 lbs all month, and it's starting to drive me a little batty. But now I'm in a new 'decade' of numbers and getting ever closer to that 10%. I can do this. Even at 7:30 in the morning when it really feels like I'll never, ever get there.
August was a tough month for me. The first three months on Weight Watchers seemed to be full of success. They were easier. The frustrations were there, but getting past them was really rewarding. Now I feel like I'm settling in for the long haul, and I have got a LONG way to go.
I didn't do so well on my August goals. As a refresher:
1. 750 minutes of exercise - I completed 630. It was so easy to come up with excuses.
2. 4 morning yoga workouts - I did a whopping ZERO. I've been stressed, and while getting out of bed to do yoga would have helped, staying in bed won every.single.day.
3. Try 3 new recipes - I completed 3 out of 3. But none of them were particularly remarkable.
The good, though? In August, I joined a gym. Went through my closet and purged stacks of clothes that are too big for me. I started the C25K program, and can run for 3 minutes without dying. I gave myself a makeover.
September always feels like a fresh start, and I'm certainly ready for it. Instead of setting goals this month, I've decided to do something a little bit different. But you'll have to wait to find out what!
