Bit by bit
Eight weeks ago, on March 1, I started this adventure with the main goal of losing 100 pounds by Dec. 31.
Trust me, I need to lose way more than 100 pounds, but this is my particular goal for this particular time frame.
To achieve this, I would need to lose 2.3 pounds a week between March 1 and Dec. 31.
I’m happy to report that so far, I am ahead of schedule.
A loss of 2.3 pounds a week for eight weeks would be 18.4 pounds.
As of today, I’ve lost 25.
This past week was the hardest yet. In addition to the new routine, I also push-mowed our yard on Thursday after work. That alone was 2.5 hours of walking.
All together, it’s kicking my rump, but it’s worth it. And hey, I’m still even getting a break on the weekends.
Just keep moving and making smarter food choices. That’s what we’ve gotta do.
And take a look at that picture. Even my son has found a good use for the treadmill: chalkboard.
At least it’s not ink pen on the wall again.
Have a great week.
