As of today, I’ve lost the equivalent of 7- 5lb bags of sugar. 35.8 pounds to be exact. Though this summer has been difficult for weight loss (not what I expected), I have lost almost 10 pounds over the past two months. I assumed that since I would have “free time,” I would be motivated to workout more and make healthier food choices. As it turns out, the summertime lax has made it hard to eat right and stay regimented. However, I decided at the beginning of summer vacation that I wanted to reach the 40 pound mark before classes resume this August. I am a 4.2 pounds away and I think that I’ll make it. After I reach that mark, I’ll strive to reach 50 lbs. Not to be conceited, but I am proud of myself for being mere pounds away from my starting college weight.
Now that I have last week behind me, it’s time to set new health goals for this coming week.
- Seriously, more water intake. Diet Mt. Dew is not water. It’s poison without the calories.
- Add 10 minutes to my walk around campus one day this week.
- Try to eat at least three servings of vegetables this week. I don’t like (most) vegetables, so this will be difficult.
- Go to bed early. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean I should stay up all night reading/Facebooking/Twittering. Nothing important is going to happen at 1 am in the world of social networking. Maybe in the literary world, but I can always bookmark it for the next morning.
Now off to conquer that next bag of sugar.
