Christmas Dress Countdown Challenge: Week 2
Week 1: 187.3 (-1.7)
Week 2: 186.9 (-.4)
This is going to be brief, but I am ecstatic for my minuscule loss. I finally broke 187, barely. But I am going to take it and run with it! I am slowly breaking free from my slump. I am feeling better and feeling emotionally stronger (which is one of the areas I have been suffering the most over the past couple of weeks).
I expect the numbers to keep declining this week. I am getting back into the gym and pushing myself again and I will conquer my difficulties. Today I am very sore from yesterday’s awesome work out.
This week I am going to push harder on my workouts but I am going to take a different approach on my eating. I am going to step away from counting calories and really pay attention to my body's cravings. Since I have started counting calories (in June) I have found that I am not eating as much red meat and in turn my iron is low and I think that is one of the reasons I have had difficulty keeping myself in balance. Low iron and low blood sugar creates a cranky tired person. I really won’t do much different in my eating, but I need to take away the tracking for a week to see what things are like. I know some of you will consider this a dieting sin, but it is what I need to do.
Have a great week. I am looking forward to finally getting my head into to the Christmas Dress Challenge!!
