Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

That’s exactly where I feel like I’m at with my health/weight.  I’m making strides in some areas. My fitness, namely.

I’m almost to my 300th 9Round workout, and I feel STRONG.  I am starting to re-re-re-re-train for a 5k and have been able to breeze through the timing of the runs since I’m in better cardio shape.  We had a pushup day at 9Round and I did 230 pushups during my 30 minute workout.

All good things.

But the scale says otherwise.  I am holding onto the weight from the cruise (and to be honest, I wasn’t great in the weeks following the cruise) and trying really hard to get back with it.

I still would like to lose some weight to feel better and be, well, smaller.  But I’m trying to see the forward momentum even if it has setbacks.

I tried a couple new things.  I had tried to go keto again, and that just wasn’t working for me.  It did before.  I lost my 30-40 lbs on it over a year.  But I wasn’t able to stick with it.  I tried Noom- a weight loss/psychology app.  That also wasn’t working for me.  So I’m back with something I know works- just tracking and calorie counting.

My difficulty comes in just consistently making decisions that push me toward my goal instead of having too many off meals and off days that set me back.  I’d love to lose these 5-10 lbs of gain, and then another 10-20.  But I’m also trying SO HARD to not be solely focused on the scale. It’s a delicate balance. I feel better when I’m devoted to moving my body and not eating crap.

And I just want to feel strong, capable and healthy. I’m getting there.
