I'm a few days late blogging, but I did weigh myself on the first of the month.
Which means that in August I lost a whopping 4 pounds. Which is a start. I guess? I had a pretty decent-sized meltdown the last week of August. I had been killing myself at the gym, and had not lost a single pound. Now, I know you're thinking, but I said I lost 4 pounds. My weight fluxuates drastically from day-to-day and I haven't gotten back on the scale since 9/1 and I have no idea if 268 is where I am, or if I've boomeranged back up. I don't really want to know (I also baked a little bit - and sampled - this weekend, so there is that).
I am noticing a tighter tummy and muscles in my legs, so I know all is not for naught. I had grand plans the other day to take measurements, so that I can see that change in addition to the scale, but for the life of me I could not find my tape measurer (even though I know there is one in my apartment). So I'm either going to buy one or find mine... And with my track history, I'll be much better off if I just purchase a new one.
I've been... pretty good about the gym since I last posted. Not great. I had a concussion last week and so I skimped on some workouts and skipped others. The good news is that when I didn't feel up to working out, I didn't feel up to eating either. School started last week and I'm working on finding a balance between school, homework, working out, and work (which starts this weekend). I've also volunteered at a local therapeutic riding center one day a week, and that starts this weekend.
Acquire a tape measurer and take my measurements. Post said measurements so that I can't lose them.
Stop getting on the scale once or twice a day. Once a week is good.
No more than four fast-food meals this month (this accounts for the nights I have late classes and don't want to think about cooking a healthy meal at 8:30 at night).
