What is it about wanting instant gratification? I want results and I want them NOW! Why is it I have only lost 6.4 pounds and 13 inches overall since I actually started tracking my journey on Tuesday, 19 January 2016 – Day 9? I suppose a better question is why am I not happy with the success I have achieved thus far?!
Did I seriously think the 100+ pounds of fat was going to dissolve overnight? Because I am not seeing the numbers I want to see, am I planning on quitting? Am I that delusional AND stupid?! I need to check out those number again:
|TOTAL INCHES LOST||13|
Looking at them again,I am able to actually SEE my progress. I need to remind myself what I have been saying to others: SLOW AND STEADY WINS EVERY TIME. Those damn numbers are going DOWN! Therefore, I MUST continue to push and move forward!
Not only am I seeing the numbers dropping, I am noticing other things . . . Good things. Things like the sleeves on some of my tops are not as snug as they used to be. The waist gap is growing larger (it’s what happens when one has a smaller waist and a big ass, AKA a pear-shape). The pain in my lower back upon waking is not nearly as severe. I can wrap my arms around my legs without my belly roll getting in the way. (I am not yet able to grab my elbows when wrapping my arms around my legs, but I am working on that.) I am able to get up off the floor A LOT easier now. (This used to be a MAJOR struggle for me.) And the best noticeable difference? My side boob does not interfere nearly as much when working out now!
Today I completed Jiggle Free Arms and Jiggle Free Abs. I did not stop when I did not know the moves. I just marched in place. I kept moving. I know will need to do it again tomorrow for Ultimate Calorie Blaster. I will have to keep doing that until I finally learn the steps.
My food was on point. I still have 157 calories left over from the original allotment. I would have more, but I know I will be hungry and an apple halved with one tablespoon of Jif Peanutbutter will take care of that. 🙂
So, even though I am wanting the work I have been putting in to show results NOW (instant gratification), I still have POSITIVE results! Therefore, Day 39 is a SUCCESS!
I just need to remember . . .
