8 Weeks! 8 weeks of workouts, 8 weeks of challenges, 8 weeks of weight loss. What I’m most proud of these past 8 weeks is that I was consistent. I stayed focused on my workouts and on my goal to lose weight. My greatest challenge these past few weeks has been remaining consistent while traveling for work, but still, I’m proud of what I achieved these past 2 months.
Week 8 was a really good week! It was spring break at work, so I had a bit of a breather while moving offices and preparing for the second half of the semester. I was most proud of not turning to food earlier in the week as a result of stress. It was super tempting to go out for drinks and food, but I went home and stuck to my plan instead.
The absolute highlight of this week were the spring tempetures and the return of our nightly family walks. I felt like a new person and I loved being able to decompress at the end of the day with my family. It was bliss!
My meals this week were also great! I stuck to my plan, eating breakfasts at home and packed lunches at work. Dinners were balanced and super easy to make, which was a win, win!
Alight! Now the good stuff… So how did I do? Well, my body changed a lot! All in all, based on my home scale, I lost 8.5 pounds in 8 weeks.
I’m REALLY proud of my success over these 8 weeks and how these changes are reflected in my body. Exterior aside, internally I feel healthier, more energized (work aside), and motivated to keep this train going down the tracks.
I’m really proud of this start to 2019! It feels good to be changing and losing the weight from my last pregnancy.
