This week is the last week I’ll be doing “measure-in Mondays”. No, I’m not going to stop tracking my progress, but I AM switching from measuring on Monday to measuring on Friday!
My husband brought up a really good point on tracking progress, and how the weekend may come with some bloat (I’m terrible at tracking my water which tends to result in bloating).
Since today is Friday – and officially the last day of Summer, woohoo, bring on pumpkin flavored everything – it’s time to measure! The past three weeks I’ve seen an overall loss of 2.5 inches. Since Monday, I’ve seen a loss of 1/2 an inch.
My Fall quarterly goal (September/October/November) was to lose 2 inches around my hips, and I’m half of an inch from meeting that goal. It’s not even October yet!
Keep in mind, I haven’t really restricted anything except for not eating Taco Bell at the frequency I had been, which was twice or thrice a month. I also don’t generally eat red meat, but I had steak last week and I had regular bacon yesterday morning.
I’m also getting at least 6 hours of sleep at night, I’ve been doing stretches in the morning and evening, I’m tracking my water and meeting that goal almost every single day, and I’ve removed a lot of stressors that prevented me from losing fat this past summer.
It’s a slow process, but it is still going! Thank you for all of you who have stuck by me on this journey, and have an amazing weekend!
