I am not giving up my goal of losing twenty pounds. I am, however, extending my schedule a bit. When I originally set the goal, I thought I was giving myself PLENTY of time to get it done, after all - I just wanted to make it a goal that was accomplished - but not something I stressed over. I figured I'd lose 20 pounds in ten weeks, easily. When I really did the math - I realized that losing two lbs/week is healthy, and doable. But it requires a pretty strict regimen, which I spent all of last year following.
I don't want this to sound like I'm bailing on my plan - or that I don't think I can't do it. I just don't want to stress myself out by knowing I only have "(blank) days left!" I also have no idea where my body wants to be, so should I lose 15 lbs, but find that I've toned up, and feel like I'm where I want to be - I'll stay there. All I know is I'm not there yet, but I'd like to be there by MAY 1st.
I'm also going to start posting my weight weekly instead of daily. I still weigh myself daily - but I'll just bore you with that stuff every Monday.
BDEM: Rob, Madelyn and I spent the afternoon at the local fitness center. I got to run on a treadmill - which I LOVE, then we went swimming. I was so happy to see that even though I haven't been running in ages, I actually ran longer and faster than I normally do. High Fives to Insanity!
Water: 40 oz (I'm falling behind on this goal, too - I need to step this one up.)
Weight - goal is to lose 2 lbs/week. I am currently on target!
