HI! It’s been a minute, but I’m still here. Still doing my thing. Still working out. Still doing AIP!
The one thing that I’ve discovered about my bonus weight loss is that I’m kinda flabby now. I may have mentioned this before, but I’m mentioning it again. Anyway, yes, I’m kinda flabby. Flabby means weight training. YUCK! I mean, I KNOW weight training will help me tighten up, but I just think it’s BORING! So my plan is to lift weights to music. Like choreograph weight routines. That’s the only way I’m going to be able to get through it initially. I’m seriously procrastinating.
In better news, I’ve set my next goal. And, WOW, putting it out here. What am I thinking?! Anyway…..my next goal is to lose 20 pounds by my birthday. March 12. We’ll see. I’m definitely not a slave to the scale. To quote my friend, Carrie J., we should celebrate non-scale victories, and I do!
Inspiration comes to me when I least expect it, from various people, from experiences. I’ve definitely got to shout of Suzanne, Jeannette B., Eileen P. and Erica L. tonight. In their own ways, they inspire me.
The week before last, I took an unscheduled “break” from working out. I needed it and enjoyed it. I ended up doing a 3.2 miles event on Saturday, but nothing earlier that week, and I was ok with it. I had to learn that I don’t need to feel guilty for not working out. I’ve learned that your body needs a break, and it’s ok to take breaks. Additionally, with my AI disease, rest and less stress is a little extra important. So, I’m gonna take those breaks, and I’m not gonna feel guilty about it!
So, next time, I hope to be able to write about weight training. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
