I had a great July - it seemed long though...down 12.5lbs for the month. I excited for a new month and I hope it's astounding. I know that even though I lost the weight, I didn't work as hard as I could have, didn't eat as well as I could have, didn't have as much water. I am not disappointed at all with my loss, don't get me wrong. I just feel like I often did in college when I did a paper the night before, didn't proofread it and still got an A. So my goal for August is to be even just a little bit better.
I had a discussion with one of the fitness instructors of Body Pump about increasing weights. She said that often times you might only do a few reps at a higher weight before you have to take them off. The next time you do a little more...etc...until eventually you will be able to do a whole track with a higher weight. I think weight loss is like that. It takes a bit of time to work into a routine and each month it should get better and better and we should get stronger and stronger.
Yesterday I went through my closet and pulled out my too big clothes. I was a little sad about getting rid of a few dresses that I do love. They actually could be worn and didn't *look* terrible, but felt huge. I am trying not to hold onto "What If" clothes. I've always kept clothes just in case. Not this time. I threw out a bunch of too big underwear this past weekend too. It was time. They were falling down. (and sometimes bringing my pants with them). It's a good feeling (however I am very frugal, so getting rid of stuff I paid for sometimes bugs me!)
How will you make your August Astounding, Amazing, All In?
I love reading your blogs!
