Wednesday Wow Factor!

Week 51
Start date: 12/28/11
Initial weight:
Current weight:
205 (last weigh-in 11/29/12)
Total weight loss:
15 pounds!

Last week's dream focus: Keep adding weight training to build muscle, lose inches, and prevent sagging skin as I lose weight; read reminders of why I need to endure the discomfort of strengthening my muscles; refocus my thoughts about the amounts of foods I fix in the evening for the family; research good nutrition and start implementing better foods into each day; and stay focused on my dream!

What went well: I did the BURN class again with my sister-in-law and pushed a little harder than the week before.  I pushed through the reasonable pain and discomfort but didn't go too hard and injure myself!  I’ve been working hard to focus on my dreams and what I want for the future.  Even though I'm not going to make New Years resolutions, I am thinking about 2013 and how I want it to be different from - and better than - this year.

Challenges:  Since December arrived, I haven't gone to the gym as much as I did the past two months.  There's been a lot going on, but that's not an excuse.  People much busier than I am are making it to the gym and kickin' butt. 

My eating... Lord, please help me!  Each week I've eaten just a little more than the week before... and now I'm going over my calorie budget and it's starting to add up.  Little by little a little becomes a lot.  I have to gain control because going to the gym less and eating more is exactly what I DON'T need.  It's slowing the progress of reaching my dream!  I CANNOT ALLOW THAT.  I WILL NOT ALLOW IT.

And Satan's been trying to enter my mind with thoughts of "Oh eating this won't really matter this one time" and "It's okay if I eat whatever I want tonight because I can start over in the morning."  Well Chrissy, IT MATTERS!  Every time I talk back to those thoughts and overcome the urge to do what I shouldn't, I'm winning and I'm developing new, GOOD habits!  I have to stand firm against his schemes and say NO to these temptations!  God is greater!

This week's dream focus: Dig deep inside me to find out why I'm beginning to slip back into old habits - figure out what's triggering this and FIX IT; keep adding weight training; refocus my thoughts about the amounts of foods I fix in the evening for the family; stay focused on my dream; and DON'T EVER GIVE UP!
