Tougher day yesterday. Was really hungry!!! Went over 296 calories on my goal ~ which bums me out. At least they were healthy calories and not junk!!
On with the positive. Accomplished 11060 steps, exercised, drank all of my water, tracked my food and blogged. I hit 5 of my 6 Most Important Things. I feel good about that!!
Also, my body feels really good, well not the sore muscles, but everything else. My pants are getting really baggy!! Got to love that!
Speaking of sore muscles. While watching The Biggest Loser last night, I heard something that I had not thought of before. One of the contestants (can remember his name) got an injury. The medic said, that he should keep "moving"! Do what you can. Wow...every time I get an injury or experience pain, I want to STOP!! Sometimes those stop times turn into years! I can't do that ever again! This morning my body is really sore and I have a hitch in my hip. But that did not stop me. I still got on the Treadmill and put my time in. I went at a slower pace and I reached my calorie loss goal, it took longer, but I got it. So I moved slower...big deal. I got the job done!! The most important point is....that I MOVED!!
On a sad note. I had a Mammogram yesterday. (I just hate that test) Anyway, the technician was the same one I had last year. She had written down that I had lost over 20 some pounds at this time last year and wanted to know how I was doing this year. So I told her that I was down 59 pounds. As I was telling her my story, I noticed that she too had dropped some pounds. So I asked her what she was doing. She told me, that last year, she was diagnosed with "Pre" Diabetes. Her doctor told her she needed to lose weight to possibly ward off the onset of this disease. Well she did not listen and a couple of months ago, she got bad news. She now has Diabetes.
She said that she is so frustrated with herself. She was pre-warned, she knew she needed to do this, but didn't. Now she's suffering the consequences of her poor decision to stay fat. NOW she is motivated and determined to beat it and reverse the damage that she has done.
Let's not wait for a devastating ailment to motivate us to do the right thing. Lets do it now!! Are you with me?
