23 Pounds Down

Well, technically 23.4 pounds down. I’m too mentally exhausted to be excited about it the way I should be. So many life changes happening and coming soon that I think a big part of my loss this past week is stress. Not eating enough by a long shot. Yeah, I finally hit the 20-pound milestone but that wasn’t really the way to do it. Despite not hitting my Fitbit step goal consistently, I have been plenty active in regard to lifting heavy things,┬áHIIT, and being bendy. So I’m proud of myself for that. But I have to eat more than just oranges and nuts.

Having a huge tea in the morning with a wake-up wrap is going to be my regular thing. And I’m going to make salmon for dinner tonight. That’s a start. I have to eat. But I will admit that I find it interesting how now that I barely drink coffee, I’m losing. SO many of my day calories came from coffee. Wow. Anyway, enough rambling. No more skipping lunch and dinner. Living off snacks isn’t wise. The end.

Goals and Mini Goals

You know what I need to remember to NOT do? I need to not look at how many more pounds I have to lose until I get to my supreme goal. I just have to keep reminding myself “You’re almost sub 20. Then 20 more and 20 more and…”

Seriously, I’ve lost 16.8 pounds. I’m proud and happy. I know once I’m working out HARD again, not just walking the dog and HIIT, there will be even more awesomeness. I just have to get crackin. For some reason, it am just dragging. I think it’s the season. Maybe that’s it. So face my face is slimmer. So I’m happy. But I’ll need to get my protein up because my muscle percentage is lower than acceptable to me. Oh yeah. I should review my new smart scale soon.
