I had a crappy day of being mad at myself for not doing as good as I wanted to do in March. I didn't meet my goals - I wanted to lose 10 pounds in March, but I only lost 6, I wanted to workout 26 days out of the 31 days, but I only worked out 21 days, I wanted to see progress in my monthly pictures, but there's no improvement. So, all day, I was really upset, and feeling like a failure, and feeling like I wanted to give up, but then I started looking at the positives, which are:
1.) I lost 6 pounds, which is an average of 1.2 pounds a week for the month of March - that's good!!! And it's better than not losing anything at all!
2.) I exercised 21 days in March - that's huge!! It's way more than I did in Jan. and Feb., and I'm running now, too, which is great!
3.) I'm eating better than I ever have in my life! Sure, I had some struggles at the end of the month, but, for the most part, I have, completely, changed my eating habits, and that's something to be proud of!
I still have tons of work to do - I'm still learning what works for me and what doesn't, but it's crazy for me to be mad at myself for "only" losing 6 pounds, and for "only" working out 21 days. I'm 90 days into my journey, and I've lost 18.5 pounds. Was I hoping to be further along at this point? Of course! But 18.5 is not something to be sad about it!
I weighed-in on my scale today since I didn't weigh-in with WW yesterday. I weigh 230, so that's up a pound since I last weighed in on my scale. From here on out, I will be going by the WW scale, so we'll see what next Wed. brings!
Exercise today was my C25K training - 16 min. of running, and 14 min. of walking for a total of 30 minutes!
