Monthly Weigh-In, September 1st

It is September and I'm just so SQUEE! It's my favorite month, my birth month and the gateway to my absolute favorite time of the year. It's still quite warm here but the humidity is receding and the mornings and evenings are beginning to be mild and gorgeous for being outdoors. So excited!

I am bloated from the start of my period so weighing in at 178 is not much of a surprise. Still holding off 99 pounds of the 101 pounds I've lost. I hit my August fitness goals out of the park, I'm really pleased and proud of myself. The eating was a bit up and down, but I'm not perfect. Eating healthy isn't about perfection, it's about maintaining balance. I had tweeted a thought about maintenance earlier in the month and wanted to share it here.

Maintenance=drudgery, right? But it's not. Think about it, by doing a little bit of work (maintaining) you can avoid doing A LOT of work.

I'm just about finished with New Rules,a couple of workouts left. These final workouts have been challenging to say the least. I think they were designed by a warden of a Siberian gulag. OUCH!

I'm not really setting any specific goals for myself this month other than maintain balance, be more mindful at mealtimes and get in lots of walking. This weather is perfect for long morning walks. Walking is such a great workout, it's fun, cheap and easy (like me, hee hee) so get on your comfy shoes, step outside your front door and put one foot in front of the other.

  1. The last stage of NROLW is pretty brutal.

    I am in the same spot, comfortable where I am, maintaining, enjoying things. It's a good place to be, isn't it?
