It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for a quick update about how I’m doing on my Lenten goal about giving up excuses.
This week past week I had a couple tests of my resolve:
- The scale was up, which is always super frustrating.
- I had several really busy days at work, which makes it easier to give up working out.
I’m happy to report that I didn’t let either of these things stop me. I quickly realized that the weight gain was my body’s reaction to the strength training, so I ceased and desisted ASAP. I used the afternoon cardio workouts as a way to release the stress of the workday.
And you know what? I feel great. I feel a sense of accomplishment that I’m sticking with my goals and not getting dragged down by excuses. I’m feeling even better that the scale is finally moving in the right direction again. I’ve lost 3.6 lbs in the last two days, and if I keep up this pace, I may just get to my goal by mid April. No matter what, I’m not going to let excuses hold me back.
