Muh scale & me have a love/hate relationship.
I weigh everyday at the same time in muh birfday suit. Then I upload it to a blog post draft so I can see them all in order and see how it fluctuates.
I know all the everything that says you aren’t supposed to weigh yourself everyday.
I. Don’t. Care.
I just have to.
It helps me more than it hurts me.
The past few months I have had a really really hard time making the scale budge. It’s hovered up & down in the same 5 lb range.
You can see my scales from Sept 3-Oct 3 at the bottom of this post and see just how that frustrating fluctuating occurs.
But around the last part of September I FINALLY broke under 220! And after a few days of fluctuating…I’m holding steady under that!
Freakin hell yeah!
This is such a huge thing for me!
I don’t necessarily have to see the scale go down every single day…just to have it stay steady and not go up is an accomplishment for me.
I haven’t really been “dieting” …just trying to watch what I eat & how much I eat.
We (and by we I mean me) are really trying to change the foods that our family (and by family I mean me and the kids) are consuming on a regular basis. Actually in the last few weeks I have gotten really restrictive with the kids diets because of the training they are in (another post to come on their acro gym stuff). But the focus is on protein and healthy. We are just cutting out the bad stuff.
Lifestyle changes such as these are a HARD, LONG, SLOW process. It sucks. It blows. It’s worth it. It takes a good bit to stop craving the bad stuff & start craving the good stuff. It takes a good while to actually LIKE the good stuff. But imma make it happen for me & mine.
We gonna do this shit. Stat.
My goal is to break under 200 lbs by the end of the year.
Right now I’m making small goals and taking it one pound at a time.
And..I’m still doing the Couch 2 5K at 5am
everyday most days. I have to redo some days a few times until I can make it all the way through. AND I’m slow as hell. LIKE SLOW. But I do it.
But I RUN.
I look back at when I started & I couldn’t run 10 ft. Now I can run around the track. PROGRESS. I’ll take it.
Today I’m heading out to Dallas to do this in tha mownin:
It’s going to be a bad ass time with muh girls (& Hippie Santa of course)!
We will be gettin our race on at 8 A to the daggum M. And when we’re done we will be gettin our drank on.
Stalk my IG for updates on the awesomeness.
Peace out friends.
(and by friends…. I mean everyone on this earth except for Janie.)
This was just a quick little post so I can publish my scales for my own records.
