Weeks seems to pass so much quicker when you never stop! I can't believe it's weigh in day again, i really have no idea where this week disappeared to...
I met most of my goals this week, as for the ones i didn't meet, tomorrow starts a new week! I managed to bike the 20 miles and walk the 15 miles that i set my goal for. Unfortunately i only made it to the gym 2 times. I think i worked a little TOO hard and my poor legs needed a couple of days rest before getting back at it.
As for my 4th goal (and seemingly most important) i halfway made it. I was aiming to lose 2lbs but i only lost 1lb. I'm TOTALLY ok with that. Mostly because that put me officially at 100lbs lost! What a fantastic feeling! Even i didn't truly realize how far i had come until i sat back and thought about that. How amazing is it that we can change whatever we want if we set our minds to it? Last year i looked at Roman and said "you know in one year i can lose 100lbs, can you believe that? How awesome would that be?!?!". Well, it's pretty effing AWESOME!
"You can do anything you set your mind to"
"You can be anything you want to be"
"If i can do it, anyone can"
It's true! There is no magic behind what i have done. I haven't taken any pills, hired a personal trainer, or followed any "fad" diets. I have done every single pound of this with simply watching what i eat (and i still eat cheeseburgers and pizza, wow do i sound like a walking advertisement!) and exercising. Absolute 100% willpower and belief that i CAN lose this weight if i WANT it bad enough.
Vacation is coming, one week from today. I don't think i'm going to make my goal of 175 so i'm shooting for 178 instead. That's 2lbs for the week. I'm also going to take it easy on the gym this week. My only plans are to bike and walk outdoors to take advantage of the beautiful weather. Same goals, 12-15 miles walking, and 15-20 miles biking. I'm hoping for a pretty easy, restful, productive week.
Now onward to the next 30lbs...
