Insight/in sight

Insight - the power or act of seeing into a situation (source:  I have been providing insight to you all along my journey through this blog (OK, I have taken some hiatuses, but stuff happens!).  Now, my goal is in sight.  It is scary, it is exciting, it is AAAAHHHHHH!

My weight loss this week puts me at 10.8 pounds to goal. Now, I am debating if I should revise my goal or not.  I think I could afford to lose more than that, and it seems more than achievable to lose 15.  I hope to lose the 10 pounds by my doctor appointment in April.  Then, my doctor and I can discuss and decide if losing more than the 10.8 pounds is a good idea or not. 

Here are my weightloss secrets:
1. Plan what you are going to eat.
2. Track what you eat.
3. Plan your activity.
4. Track your activity.
5. Eat your veggies and fruits.
6. Move more than you did before.

What else would you like me to write about!?

Physical Transformation

I haven't blogged in forever.  It was brought to my attention that you haven't seen a new blog post since November.  Sorry.  I have no good excuse.  In September I spilled iced tea all over my keyboard on my laptop. There is a new keyboard on order Christmas, and it is still not here...

I have been really struggling with what to write to inspire my readers.  I have not been following the plan very well.  I have been sick for two weeks.  I had strep throat.  Then a nice head and chest cold settled in.  I haven't really worked out since I got strep.  I have done two 30 minute sessions this week end.  I wish it could have been more.  Something is better than nothing. 

This week end while I was on the bike at the gym, I looked down.  I realized that there is less of me.  I really needed the time off of working out and away from looking at myself all the time.  It was more mental than anything, but I finally am realizing how much weight I have lost mentally.  I see it on the scale, but looking in the mirror I didn't see a difference - until now.

I look forward to getting back into my 6 work out sessions a week :)
