According to the scale this morning, I’ve lost 10 pounds since the beginning of the year! I know the number on the scale isn’t everything, but it was nice to see, anyway. Looking forward to being out of the 200’s very soon.
There’s really not a visible difference at this point, but I felt like 10 pounds down was a good point to take some progress pics anyway.
I’m happy to report that I’ve lost 7.4 pounds since the beginning of 2017. I was aiming for 5, so I thrilled with that. I also managed to improve my time on my 2-mile jog by 2:05.
When we look at the consistency of my workouts, diet, etc., things start to fall apart a bit. Here’s a look at how many days out of 31 that I hit my goals in the following areas:
-Calories: 17/31 (started logging on Jan. 9th)
So…I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made, but I still have a lot of work to do. My basic goals for February:
-Be more consistent with everything above.
-Improve the quality of my diet.
-Lose at least 5 pounds.
I’ve also started a new workout program that someone suggested, so I’m excited about that as well. Here’s to a great February!
(EDIT: I’ve also done a terrible job at reading other blogs this past month. I’ll try to do better going forward!)
