I’m Back!

Hi everyone, I’m sorry I haven’t been around lately. I did get my promotion at work! Which was very exciting, but I’ve been super busy at work. And, I didn’t have access to a computer at home really, until now. I finally have my own laptop again, thanks to my honey! So, now I have down time in the evening I can get back on to blogging. I’ve missed y’all on here!

So, I had gotten down 9lbs, but then gained it back when I quit logging onto my fitness pal. Well, now I’m back on my fitness pal logging every day again. I also changed gyms to one that is cheaper and a lot closer. My mom joined with me now and I’ve been averaging going to the gym 5 days a week.

I have a plan, but I haven’t been able to implement it like I wanted. My plan is to get up in the morning and do a Turbo Jam workout, have Shakeology for breakfast, salad for lunch, workout in the evening followed by a reasonable dinner. I have done the Turbo Jam workouts a few times now and they are really fun, but I haven’t had a chance to get in a consistent habit of working out in the morning before work. And, I haven’t been sleeping well in the evenings so lately, I’ve been hitting the snooze button too often. Oops… But, I have been making my Shakeology smoothie every morning and I can definitely tell a difference from before! Since Shakeology, my need for caffeine has lowered dramatically! I don’t have to start every morning off with a “fru-fru” coffee packed with calories or a large coke packed with sugar. I also don’t have as much of a craving for fried foods.

I actually went to Chick fil A today for lunch and had a salad with chicken on it rather than the old chicken strip combo with large waffle fries that I used to get. That, was a great non-scale victory for me!

So, in conclusion, I’m not where I want to be really at this point, but I am making progress and better eating habits as well as exercise. I’m really happy to have my own computer again so I can get back on here and share with y’all and hopefully get buckled down on my weight loss goals. 🙂

I hope y’all are all doing well! ~Charity

  1. The goal is sustainable change, right? You are doing a fabulous job!

  2. I like your phrase “non-scale victory”. That is such an important part of the progress! Keep up the good work!!!
