The voice of the doctor saying "you need to lose weight", the voice that is always there. I stepped on the scale this morning to a 2lb loss. It feels like nothing, but I am doing my best to celebrate the small goals. I put the scale away so I won't step on it again until next Friday. I am trying to take the pressure off that scale and just focus on eating.
For the past few weeks I have used the excuse that I have a boot to not workout. Then this morning while standing with my daughter at the bus stop, I saw someone out for a walk with their boot. Not just a easy stroll, but a power walk with their dog. I need to stop making excuse and start doing something. Tonight I am setting some goals or checkpoints for next week:
Drink 100oz of water a day
Walk 20 minutes a day
3 days do an weight arm routine M/W/TH
These are doable! There is no reason I can't do this, well the reason is I am lazy. I need to get back into the habit. I need to remind myself of this.
