Ok, it's update time again. The week before and after my vacation I got way off track with my eating and working out. Being sick didn't help any either! So last week I got myself back on track as much as I could. I couldn't believe how out of it my body was just from not working out for two weeks. I put in Turbo Jam and couln't even do half of it without feeling as if I was going to pass out! The heat last week didn't help any either, however I'm slowly working myself back into it. My husband just recently got a weight bench so he has been helping me with weight/strength training. He's a really great coach, too! <3 <3 lol Anyway, I decided to weigh myself again Friday just to see where I stood, expecting to have gained 5 lbs or more, lol. I was shocked when the scales said I lost an additional 2 lbs! I don't know how I lost, but I did and it made me very happy, and also motivated me to keep going again. I'm almost to the 30 pound mark, it's in my reach! It's been more difficult lately for me to be able to work out because of having a lot of appointments and things like that so I haven't been working out 5 days a week, but have been trying to as much as I can. I know it's going to take time to build back up to where I was doing good workouts 5 days a week, but I'll get there eventually.
My biggest obstacle right now is my husband, lol! It's not like he's intentionally trying to sabotage my weight loss, but he eats what he wants (he gets an 8 hour work out at his job every day, lol). He's always grabbing junk food at the store and it's sooo tempting to me! I asked him if he was trying to keep me fat so that I wont leave him for someone else..he didn't like that too well! He just doesn't understand that it is important for me to lose this weight. He thinks I'm beautiful the way I am and he gets angry when I call myself fat because he says I'm not fat! I appreciate that he sees me as being beautiful but I want to lose the weight for myself and my family, too so that I can be around for a very long time! Plus I want to set a good example for my kids so they don't end up in the same mess I'm in now.
