It’s a habit now, I guess.
Someone, somewhere said that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit.
It took me about two weeks to really get the hang of this whole system. It was frustrating. I’m not going to lie, it still is. I feel like I’ve done an insane amount of work to lose only four pounds in the last 30 days.
I know, I know. Four pounds is still a loss. I know, I know, it took me a lot longer to put on the 30ish pounds I want to lose than 30-days. I know, it’s a process.
For some unknown reason, I have been slacking in my workouts this month. But that same mysterious person somewhere said that abs were made in the kitchen.
God I am being so cheesy with this post.
I just want you to know I am aware of all the things that are said about a weight loss/fitness journey. Maybe if repeat these things to myself, along with my reality it’ll make the whole process a little bit easier. A little bit more realistic.
In these thirty days I have realized I am making more conscious decisions about the foods I eat. Like if I know we are going to go out for dinner I’ll save my points for that dinner and adjust breakfast, lunches and snacks accordingly. Like tonight my daughter has a concert at school, so it’s McDonald’s dinner. I have already input my four nuggets and medium (nope, not a small) fry. Yes, I eat my FitPoints and my WeeklyPoints – I like food.
I have never been a big fan of fruits but I am not trying to waste 8 points on a snack I’d normally have.
Even if I am unable to lose the weight I want to lose I am aware I am making better food/eating decisions and that really is the most important part…. right?
