I think the biggest perk about losing weight is the confidence that comes with it. I have so much more energy now, but I also feel really good about myself. I know I have more weight to lose, but 6 months ago, I was not nearly as happy as I am with myself, as I am now. I think that alone is worth all the exhausting workouts and sweat-soaking t shirts. 6 months ago, I would not have worn this leopard blouse from Ruby Bloom, which let me tell you, they so many cute clothes ranging in sizes from S-XXXL. If you live in Utah, they are opening up a boutique in American Fork in September. Pretty excited about that. But back to what I was saying about weight loss. Since losing now 58 lbs clothes just feel better and it also helps when I buy clothes in a smaller size.
Each week, I try and set goals for myself to complete. You might think, why do that? It's only a week! Well I really need those goals to help me get through so that I can see results at the end.
This week, I have decided to focus more on my running. I want to start maintaining my pace when I run and not be all over the place. I find I run better when I do that. I also want to be 100% on my water intake. Yep, that means 150oz of water a day! Especially since its so hot outside, I think that's least I could do for my body. I also want to snack less. I have a huge box of wheat thins that my kids munch on and unfortunately, I do too sometimes. They aren't the healthiest thing in the world, so I need to cut that out.
Here's to another great week of amazing workouts and healthy eating!
