Grand Total Loss 45.4
How I am feeling physically: Physically I feel totally fine right now. This means two things- 1. I am improving and 2. I am not working out hard enough. I should at least have some sore calves or abs or something- come on! So note to self- step up those workouts!!! I also recently got an app that gives you a blood pressure reading (its crazy what phones can do- do I sound 100 years old??) Anyway, I am a little higher than where I should be. Nothing crazy but I would like to get myself down into the “normal range”. Workouts alone have already impacted my resting heart rate. I now rest between 64-74 bpm and that was DEFINITELY not the case before. So, here is to health progress and not just cosmetic progress!
How I am feeling emotionally: Well,obviously I am excited for a good loss this week. However, just as I was honest with myself last week- I had to bust out that truth bomb again today. While this is great it doesn’t define me. I need to work just as hard or harder to keep my momentum going. Also, a solid loss like that is not permission to “celebrate” with food. I read a quote recently that said “Dont reward yourself with food- you aren’t a dog.” How telling that is to a disordered way of thinking about food. There was a time when I was still
failing learning about this that I probably would have thought I have another week until I hit the scales so why not have that slice or have that ice cream or extra glass of wine. And now I KNOW that you don’t let up. It is all day everyday. Stick to your plan, plan your indulgences ahead of time so you have plenty of good choices all around them, and YOU be in control. It feels good to get that and even better to finally be putting it into practice.
