2nd Makeover Monday

Let me just start by saying, this week, I failed.
This week I totally failed.
I love food. I'm on my period. It's summer for goodness sake. It's hard to get back into routine.
I'm making excuses.
So, here is my weight as of this morning:


I will say that I think the scale was wrong when I weighed in at 151.5 last time. I mean seriously, who loses 3.5 pounds over night?? probably not me. When I weighed myself on Tuesday I was at 153; reasonable. So, Im gonna make that my starting point.

I'm going to try to stop thinking about food so much because honestly, that's what screws me. I'm still gonna stick with my diet food of choice: Frosted mini wheats, but I'm just going to try to not snack.

You know how I said I was going to do 30 minutes of cardio & lift 4 times a week? Well I did that basically. I ran or walked or rollerbladded every day but one and I did 2 good days of lifting, along with a couple days of my Shape Abs DVD.

This week, for Makeover Monday I want us all to continue to work on our eating & exercise but to also work on our mental & emotional health. Jot down your thoughts a couple days (you know, the ones too intimate for the blog) & set some goals for yourself like the one I made for myself this week: be realistic. Also, look at yourself in the mirror & smile. Remind yourself how lucky you are to have a body that works, even if it will never be perfect.

See you next Monday with a picture.

Look at how much you worked out this week! Cardio every day but one and all that lifting and ab work. Just because you didn't achieve the results you had hoped does NOT mean you failed. Just keep positive and keep telling yourself that this is a new week. I love what you wrote about mental health- especially that last quote. "Remind yourself how lucky you are to have a body that works, even if it will never be perfect." That's beautiful. Hope you have a great week :)
