Half way there and…

Ok so I am late with this posting – I should have written this blog on Monday. I am late with my newsletter too – yes again! What a crazy hectic life I lead but I can’t really complain because without it I would be bored out of my mind. I tried the whole stay at home mom thing – not for me so crazy-assed hectic it is! Bet late than never I guess…

So on Monday – the 6 week mark into my 3 month goal, I stepped on the scale with a bit of trepidation. I haven’t exactly been well behaved and focused the last two weeks. A few too many glasses of wine, not enough effort in my workouts (although I did add a 3rd boot camp) and absolutely no effort put into an extra workout between classes. Yep, I have been a bad girl! yep, it is true, I am human! No really, I am!

On a positive note though – I haven’t exactly been that bad! Regular healthy snacks, low-fat, low cal meals well balanced with proteins, fats and carbs, a ton of water and even some extra sleep thanks to my now 5-month old son actually figuring out that night time is no longer an all-you-can-eat buffet!

Ok so Monday morning comes and I am getting ready to leave for the spa (thank you to my darling husband who booked me a full day of treatments) and I am standing at the scale wondering how I am going to explain my lack of results to all of you and…. 165lbs and 25% body fat!! PHEW!! Thank you to my high metabolism and activity level!!  I did it! I am now officially the same body fat and even lighter weight – actually this is the lightest I have been since my husband has known me although he swears he sees no difference in my body because I have always been perfect (yes I have him well trained!).

Needless to say, I am both relieved and newly motivated! In 6 weeks I have managed to lose 4% body fat, 14 lbs and a total of 8.5″ on my waist, belly, thighs (Yes even my thighs!!! YEAH!) and hips! I have mentioned before that I don’t measure my chest because I am still nursing so we have a few more months to determine where these puppies end up (Ok, 6 months, 3 weeks and 6 days – but who’s counting??)

So here we go – the 6 week countdown to 22% Body Fat. I know this will be the toughest stretch yet and will take a lot of focus. I honestly don’t know if I am quite up to the challenge – it’s is really going to take work and dedication. There are moments of weakness that I think it would be better to just change my goal than to change my lifestyle even more but then I look in the mirror and envision where I want to be, how I want to feel, how I want to look. I think about the amazing trip we have planned to Hawaii to celebrate our anniversary next year and I think about how fast 40 is creeping up on me. If I am ever going to do it – now is the time because it will only get harder from here on out. I also think about letting people down – you, my cliets, my friends and family. Not that they care what my body percentage is, but they do care about integrity and so do I. I said I was going to do it and I am going to stick to my guns – kick myself in the ass just like I would any of my clients ready to quit and remind myself that every time we break a promise to our self, we chip away at our self esteem.

I can do this. I will do this – for me, for you and mostly just because I said I would.

So here we go… 6 weeks and counting. How are you doing on your goals???
