August has been a lot busier than I intended for it to be. I feel like I left all of my summer for the last month, and have been busy every weekend. And, not to mention, even busy during the week. I took a week off from work, went away for a weekend, celebrated birthdays, and spent some time with friends. It’s been crazy busy, and now it’s time to get my head on straight.
On Monday I got an e-mail – from my personal trainer (shout out to Colin if he ever reads this!) – which made me feel quite… disappointed in myself. I haven’t been being hard enough on myself, or focusing on my health as much as I should have. At least, not in a physical way. I’ve been taking more care of my emotional and mental health, and put my physical health on the back burner. But getting that check-in e-mail from Colin really made me want to smack myself upside the head.
You see, I’m better than this. I’m good at the gym. Okay, I’m not the best at the gym. But when I get there, I feel so good about myself. I feel inspired. And in control. And I love it. When I’m there. But it’s getting me there that is the problem.
This week, today, I am starting something new. This is Weigh In Wednesday. At the end of each week, I’m going to weigh in, and comment on the past week. I will include the following, plus more, in every post:
- Starting weight
- Current weight
- Weight loss or gain
- What attributed to my loss or gain
a) What was my food intake like?
b) How many times did I hit the gym?
c) Was I more weights than cardio?
- Pictures of my progress
- What hurdles did I face
- Goals for the next week
- Power quote
My weeks will run Wednesday-Tuesday (so my weigh in will either take place Tuesday nights or Wednesday morning) and I will update you every Wednesday with my Wednesday Weigh In! It’s my way to be more accountable, because I won’t just be letting myself down – I’ll be letting you down as well. I weighed myself in last night, so I know what I’m starting the first week off as. I can’t wait for next Wednesday when I can let YOU know about my progress.
I want to share in my journey, and work along through it with you guys. I don’t have a gym buddy right now, so I’m counting on staying accountable through this blog. It’s time to kick my own ass. There are no excuses.
Come along on this Wednesday Weigh In with me – if others are interested, I can always create a Facebook group – or, feel free to always e-mail me! I’m firstname.lastname@example.org!
It’s time to kick it into gear.
LET’S DO THIS!
