I feel like I am just spinning my wheels. I eat good for a few days and don't exercise then I exercise then I don't eat as good. Just a vicious cycle that is literally getting me NO WHERE!! Now, you might have read that I made it to my first goal a couple of weeks ago of getting below 150 and I did do that but still two weeks later I am at the same spot and my inches have not changed much since weighing 157.
For me, if the inches aren't going down then I am not using my time and energy wisely and that just isn't a good combination for me. If the scale goes down but pound after pound the pants still fit the same it just doesn't matter to me. I want those inches to decrease THEN I know I am truly getting smaller. Those are the times that the scale is really deceiving. Just b/c it goes down doesn't always mean you are getting smaller and if you aren't getting smaller than what is the point, when your goal is fat loss that is.
Of course just overall health is the main reason but I am long past that. For me this is a lifestyle but I have goals that go along with that principle and right now it is fat loss which in return means inch loss and fat loss on the scale in time.
At this point in my journey with an uncertain amount of pounds to lose (just not sure what weight I will be when I get to how I want to look) it takes BOTH EXERCISE AND CLEAN FOOD. CONSISTENT exercise and clean food that is! That is the bottom line. I know this but sometimes I have to re-focus and remind myself of it constantly. It just won't come off easy like we all want it too. I have to work hard for those things that I truly want and right now this is one of them.
So here is to being reminded and re-focusing yet ONCE AGAIN!!
I started off today good with an AM workout. I got up at 4:50 am this morning and made it to the gym about 5:23. My goal is to get there at 5:15 and workout one solid hour. I got in 47 minutes this morning.
