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 Sunday. Sundays are the perfect day to weigh in because I don’t have any other morning obligations and can focus on my weight loss. Plus, Sunday weigh-ins will keep me accountable through the weekend. Throughout the fall, I’ll be giving Sunday progress updates called Fabulous Fall Weigh-Ins.
Week 7 wasn’t a lucky one for me. I gave into TOM cravings, made possible by the plethora of Halloween candy around. Plus, the foot pain is back with a vengeance, and it was just a super-looooong week. Not excuses, just facts.
This morning I weighed in at 302.4.This is a gain of 3.0 lbs this week, which means I have 21 pounds to go to reach the pre-surgery requirement.
I just recorded a video for my YouTube Channel with more details about the week, so if you’re so inclined, please watch:
I want to add that I’m not going to write a long list of all of the workouts I have planned for the week. They’re in my iCal on my computer and my phone. Just look for them on MyFitnessPal and Twitter. You’ll see them after I complete them, and we can celebrate then. It’s about DOing, not saying.
Until next Sunday, my friends. I hope the scale treats you well, and that you have a wonderful week!
