I don’t know about you, but I have been dreading the thought of summer being over. We’ve had such a nice, mostly sunny summer and I just don’t want it to end. In addition to the lovely, warm weather, in the summer you can wear those nice flowy dresses. They keep you cool through those hot, steamy days. But even better, they are so forgiving if you are up a few pounds from over indulging at the plethora of bbq’s and patio parties that go along with a great summer. Come fall and winter, I tend to skip the dresses and revert to the warmth that pants and jeans can provide. But they are not so forgiving. One day, they can fit perfectly and a burger and fries later and I can feel like I am a stuffed sausage. And that is just not a comfortable feeling.
So this week, when the temperatures were a bit cooler I knew it was time to dig out the pants. I was dreading it, to say the least. But man oh man, was I surprised. The pair of pants that used to fit me on a good day, but definitely weren’t buffet eating pants, were actually big on me. It felt amazing.
For weeks now I have been really struggling. I haven’t seen much movement on the scale and I definitely had not been as committed to working out and eating right as I had been earlier this summer. It was such a great feeling to know that I was making progress. It has definitely given me motivation to keep going and work even harder. I really pushed myself when I was able to get to the gym this week and I continue to ensure I get my 10K steps in every single day.
Life over the past few weeks has been crazy busy and I haven’t been able to devote as much time to my posts as I would like. Luckily, the madness is pretty much over and I can get back on track in all the different facets of my life. Can’t wait to see all the progress that comes along with it!
