Hello friends! I know I haven’t been posting the last couple of weeks so I thought I’d do a quick update of where things are with me.
I’ve had an injury the last couple of weeks that’s prevented me from doing very much. So I’ve been resting and now am finally getting back into the swing of things. This morning I went for my first walk in two weeks and it felt really good to get out. My brother and I did 5 km down to the lake and back. We got up nice an early and headed out around 6:30am. It was beautiful out, a cool breeze and nice and quiet. I’m really learning to love morning walks.
The downside is that I kind of feel like I’m starting from scratch becasue I took so much time off. I’m going to start pushing myself a little harder each day to get back up to speed. The goal is to have me walking 10 km at a time, which is the distance from my apartment to the pier in Hamilton. I’d like to hit that goal by September 1.
My other goal to hit is my 5% Weight Watchers goal. That is a 16.5 lb weight loss, which means I need to lose 13 more pounds over the month of August (5 weeks). I am up for the challenge and definitely thing I can acheive both goals this month. At my last weigh in I actually gained 1.8 lb—which I think stems from not being able to work out—but I’m not discouraged and will just try and keep focused for my next weigh in on July 31st.
The other thing I have been focusing on is my Life Reboot program. I have been learning a lot about myself over the last couple of weeks and really making some great headway. I’ve figured out some of the patterns that limit me (for example when I’m uncomfortable about something I tend to shut down and not want to talk about it) and now I’m leaning how to change those patterns. It’s been great doing this program and it’s really helping me look at my life differently.
So there you have it! An update from little old me. I promise not to be so stingy with the updates going forward. 😉
I hope everyone has a great week!!
