Autumn has arrived! Which means that life is back to normal – school’s in, my schedule is busy, and obligations abound. But I won’t use those as excuses to slack on my goals. The great thing about fall is that the weather is cooler and there are no holidays or other social commitments to derail me from strictly adhering to my food and workout plan. I’m determined that fall 2012 will be when I achieve my pre-surgery weight loss goal. Since weekday mornings are hectic, I’m moving my weigh-in day to Saturday. Saturday mornings I go to Zumba, so I’m already focused on health and fitness; it’s the perfect day to weigh in. Plus, Saturday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend. Throughout the fall, I’ll be giving Saturday progress updates called Fabulous Fall Weigh-Ins.
I’ve been having a really hard time juggling everything since school started, and I recently sat down and tried to get myself organized so that it all didn’t feel so chaotic. Now, I realize that compared to a lot of people, my life is simple, but they’re not on my journey, I am. Don’t get me wrong, life is going great – work is fantastic, home is wonderful, and I’m really lucky. But I want to set myself up for success in all areas, so I needed to set a few major changes in place.
I’m not trying to be cryptic, but I’m not ready to reveal the changes yet. When I am, you’ll be the first to know.
One obvious change is my weigh-in day, which I’ve moved to Saturday, beginning next week. I’m taking this week off to get organized. Next week, you’ll see a post in the early afternoon, after I get home from Zumba.
Until next Saturday, my friends. I hope the scale treats you well, and that you have a wonderful week!
