New Challenge & New Goals
February was amazing. I went to Iceland for a few days. I saw places that I do not see having the opportunity to see again within my lifetime. I felt great in my own skin. Even with the extra clothes that I had to wear I still felt great.
I didn't walk nearly as much there as I thought would. My eating habits were horrible. Everything was so expensive in Iceland. For example, we went to Taco Bell one night. A Quesarito which is normally $3.29 in the United States costed $17.99 in American dollars.
I only brought $200 with me. It was cheaper and easier to eat garbage from the convenience stores. I was only there a couple of days. It didn't hurt me to do this. But it opened me up to feeling like I could eat cheat food and be okay.
I came home from Iceland then spent the next week or so eating fast food because I didn't want to go grocery shopping. I didn't want to, so I didn't. How did this back slidey way of eating and not working out affect me? I've gained weight. I'm back to 200 lbs.
I'm so disappointed in myself but I'm determined to get back on track and do what I'm supposed to do. Work out every single day whether I feel like it or not. Staying active is important to my mental well being. I don't feel so flappy and jiggly when I work out. I have to get back to it.
So there you have it. That's where I'm at. I've fallen out of my wagon. Now I'm getting up and dusting myself off before I get back on my wagon. This month is my dusting off phase. I need to reteach myself to eat right and work out. That's important so that's my personal goal this month. Get back on track. 10,000 steps a day. That's it.
March Challenge - 2019 - Baseline
- Thigh: 22"
- Weight: 200.4 Pounds
Day 1 - Friday
Day one snuck up on me! I don't know how exactly. Maybe because February is such a short month that March 1st shows up quick! Anyway I worked today very early in the morning. Got off work around 11. Went straight to clean my sister's house and then went grocery shopping. I bought dinner out for the last time. Forgot about the workout until almost 9:30. I got it done!
Day 2 - Saturday
Today was a busy day. I was off work. I had to run every errand under the sun and get it done. My washing machine is broken so I'll be spending Sunday at my mother's doing that. After all of the errands I purged my kitchen cabinets of anything I don't actually use. Then did my work out. I think I sat down very late. Remembered I had a workout to do so I had to get up and GO do it. I did it. YAY!
Progress on My Goals
I cooked for the first time in almost a month yesterday. It felt odd. It tasted really good. So far I think I'm on track with my personal goals. However! It's only the first two days. I think it'll go well. I just have to work at it. Remember that I have to work at it.
Each challenge task is worth one point upon completion. The first week of tasks only included 6 items to complete and therefore was worth 6 points.
Measuring my thigh each week is worth 1 point.
Posting my stats on time (by 6pm Sunday) is also worth 1 point. I was a little late this week getting it posted.
Therefore, this week there are 8 points available, but I missed 1 point because I didn't post my stats by 6pm on Sunday.
Points Earned: 7
