month two update

It has been eight weeks since I embarked on my weight loss journey, and I am pretty stinkin' excited to share that I have met half of my goal already. Long-term, I am shooting for 30 lbs and as of today, I'm down 15.3. Insert happy dance here.

It definitely hasn't been easy, it's been a struggle most every single day. Making the choice to say no to snacking, sweets, pop, fast food, and junk takes a concerted effort on my part on a daily basis. The little victories keep me motivated, as well as the words of encouragement from friends like you. So, thank you!

Day 1 / Day 28 / Day 56

Highlights from the past two weeks: 

Little Victories: My most notable victory from the past two weeks is the progress I've made with running. This past Saturday, I was able to run for 20 minutes straight. Bonus, I didn't feel like keeling over. I'm anxious to see how much progress I can make in the next two weeks since according to the app, I should be 5K ready by then... Oh, and did I mention that I've officially dropped two sizes in pants and one size in tops? Can we insert another happy dance here? I think we can!

Regrets: The last two weeks have been challenging workout wise. Either life happened or rain and I wasn't able to get in the runs I wanted to. It can be very discouraging, so I really need to schedule/plan more effectively so that I can workout around life and rain. I've also slacked on the water consumption.

Workout Days Completed: Five 5K Runner workouts for a total of 9.59 miles. I had hoped to do all six, but weather and life happened... again.

Days Over 10,000 Steps: Six.

Weight Lost: 1.2 lbs for a total of 15.3.

Next Month’s Focus: Increase water consumption as well as get all 5K Runner days in as intended.

Now onto Month Three. I'm going to scale back a bit on how often I provide updates. My last posts share how I'm approaching this weight loss journey and why, not much is changing at this point. As I continue to meet milestones, I will keep you posted!
