The past two weeks have been a whirlwind. Though I wish I could take them back so that I could redo my diet and exercise, I have enjoyed spending every minute with my husband. He will be leaving back to Afghanistan soon.
Though the circumstances under which he came home are horrible, it was amazing to have him home working out by my side.
I feel like in the past week I have gotten more and more compliments. It is so motivating to hear who people are seeing the results of my hard work. Even though I don’t physically see it, I do feel the effects.
My workouts are getting more intense, but I’m able to complete them and/or keep up. This past week I did an intense cardio that was about an hour of interval jogging and walking. I have never been able to do something that intense and it felt great afterwards. Well let me be more clear, it felt great mentally, but wow physically was I sore!
The diet is where I have really struggled. I’m worried that even though I was still able to lose, that it may start to catch up to me. It’s so hard to get back into a routine once you fall out of it. That has always been my downfall. Once I have a bad couple of days, I just say forget it. I need to tell myself not to “punish” myself for those bad days and just concentrate on today.
All in all, I have to say I am pretty proud that I have lost as much weight as I have in the past two months. I have never lost this much weight this quickly. A few years ago I got down to about 197, which is less than 10 pounds away! It’s going to be exciting to get on the scale and be part of what "The Biggest Loser" calls, “onederland.”
