A new month. Not a new number this week on the scale:
Tanita-san says, "180.4"
Same as last update.
Why? I'm eating maintenance level calories. About 1700, some days less, one day closer to 1800. I only stayed in CDCC caloric range one day this week. So, I maintained, with little rambles up and down the 2 lb range.
Exercise goals: met. Hurt my ankle Friday so have been babying it, but otherwise, met my minimum.
Book: reading it
Support: Have commented on various challenge blogs, so yeah.
Blogging: yeah, with pics!
My special effort and emphasis this week is on getting back under 1400 calories per day. No helping it. To make that dress goal, I have to do 1200 calories, and I cannot go above 1400. Or I maintain. And if I go over 1700, I will gain. Pretty simple. But not always easy.
But I did it in the past, so I can do it again. If I dig deep, if I exercise my willpower muscle, I'll find that mojo again.
I made my new little badge (see side bar left) to remind me of the ticking clock. I bought a new dress (see pic previous post) to remind me to NOT regain, so I can wear cute dresses that make my husband's eyes light up like mad. Dresses that show off how nice my legs have become (at least from the lower thigh down, hah).
Life goes on. The fight goes on. The Challenge goes on. And I am not...ever...quitting!
I hope everyone has an amazing October. One full of epiphanies, newfound strengths, lower scale numbers, and greater zest for life and health.
Onward. Be well...
