Today is Day 50 of my 100 days of exercise goal! Halfway there - it seems both longer and shorter than that. There's no doubt that I'm stronger and in better shape than I have been in years and years. I am easily able to do exercises that I couldn't have hoped to do last year. I even had my 13 year old and her friend do a Pilates DVD with me and they were complaining that it was too hard - they should be in WAY better shape than me! Although, I wouldn't take them on in a foot race.
Food-wise, I'm up and down per usual. I had a couple good days and then yesteray was a bit of a bomb-out. First, I ate fast food for lunch, and not a correct portion as I would normally try to do, but a full-on meal. I even had regular soda. Then, I had some mini donuts when I got home. I forced myself to do a long stretch on the treadmill to make up for it, but then I followed up that effort with a late-night turkey wrap sandwich, watermelon and another serving of mini donuts. Ergh! At least I burned off what I ate, I think.
I expect my weight to not have much movement again this week. I need to find some long-lasting motivation - it seems I can find motivation for short bursts, but nothing long-term enough to have a more steady weight loss.
But, at least I'm not gaining. I need to remember that. And the exercise is obviously going really well.
