This week's topic is…..Accomplishments What have you accomplished in your weight loss journey? Is it a number on the scale? Or an eating habit that you've changed? Or a fitness goal that you've reached? Or maybe something else entirely? Whatever it is, let's talk about it and celebrate it.
Accomplishments: I have begun the Whole30 eating plan and while I do not find staying away from grains and starches to be difficult, the limited fruit might get me. And, no more natural peanut butter. Ironically, I told my husband a few weeks ago if I just stopped eating pb, I would probably lose tons of weight. HA! I was seeing into the future. Honestly, I feel really good on this plan and am going to be experimenting with some foods (pray y'all) just to find ways to spice things up.
I have also stepped off the scale for a while. I am having some other issues at the moment (hormone related, so obnoxious) and until that is resolved, some things are going to be beyond my control. Yes, not weighing myself every single day is an accomplishment. I also read this blog the other day and she made one statement that stopped me in my tracks, "Size 10 jeans, who says you need to be a size 4?" She also says she weighs 145, and the girl is fit! Seriously, great shape. It was that one comment though that made me realize how I tend to fixate on certain numbers, be they on the scale or on the tags of my clothes. Does it matter? Not really. Ultimately, my goal is to be in insanely good health, to reduce my body fat, and to ensure I am doing everything within my power to allow my body to function at its highest level.
Finally, I am starting to increase the weight I use at CrossFit, which is fun. I still modify as needed depending on how my neck/shoulder are feeling. My left side, which was most affected by the herniated disc, is definitely weaker than my right side, but that's ok. It endured a major surgery, and I would say its doing pretty well all things considered.
