We're officially half way in the GAG challenge, week 8/16, and I haven't exactly lost half of what I was expecting to lose. Half way is a great point of refreshment - like Half Time of a football game. I'm taking this as a chance to get refreshed, review what has been working, and what hasn't, and go on to kick the ball out of the park. I want to win! I will do what it takes to get to my goal.
I just went back and re-read the beginning posts and rules of the Gag challenge.
"This challenge is about taking 16 weeks to make your health a priority, one that we often during this specific time of year tend to let go."
Exactly. Make your health a priority. It's all about balance, yes, but it seems when health isn't one of the big priorities in my day, everything (and everyone) else suffers. I don't feel well, I feel lazy and inefficient, not being able to do all that I can. I function best when my health IS a priority.
I love this challenge have I said it before? More than once I'm afraid.
NUMBER CRUNCHING TIME: Today's weigh-in: 143.9 (told you I thought I gained a pound) Last week: 143.1 Week before: 143.8
SW: 148.6 Goal: 135.0
First half of GAG lost: 4.7 lbs Second half goal to lose: 8.9 lbs
This means I must start losing about 1.2 lbs per week. Shouldn't be hard, right?
I'd make a plan, but I always seem to do badly with plans. I will focus on the task (lose a pound a week) and try my hardest, do my best to get this done.
