Another busy day here ! With extra housekeeping activities to rid the house of any traces of our little friend , I have been hopping. Hopping, moving, scrubbing but not officially exercising . I get up at 4 am to start my day and stay flying till after dinner, where I struggle to keep my eyes open and make my back stop hurting. All this bending, shifting, scrubbing is murder on it !
A thought came to me today while I was changing the reservoir tank on the carpet shampooer. I have been really hesitant in the past to set a definite weight loss goal for myself , simply because I am working with different issues. I do not struggle with emotional eating, bad choices or so forth, but hormonal issues. It seems that these cooperate when I eat fish (something I have not been able to eat due to an allergy till recently). If I have another good loss this week ( last week was not a stellar week for exercise either and I had a very nice loss) , I am going to set my first ever personal goal- to be in One-derland by this Thanksgiving. This would be a 42 lb loss in roughly 14 weeks. That is 3 lbs per week, and possible . I would not beat myself up over it if I lost, but if I could archive it, this would be the fulfillment of a goal that has been 20 years in the making ! Perhaps with this in my sights it might tell the universe to stop tossing so many wild cards my way for a while because I have other uses for me for a while.
The thought makes me feel very optimistic !
