The month of October has started and I am ready to kick the weight loss in gear.
I have still struggled with losing weight this past month. It seems for the last couple of months I have continued to stay close to the same weight. I feel like I have hit a wall with my progress.
I know I need to keep a better record of food I eat. I talked about this before, but I now have a written journal and an electronic version to help me see what I am doing wrong.
When I check the calories of the food I eat, I found the little things add up in a bigger way. I know that this weight loss is simple – the calories you burn during the day must be more than the calories you eat. If you can burn 3,500 calories and take in less, you can lose a pound.
The past week was just fair for working with Derek Nimrichter of Bodi N Balance. My schedule allowed me to work with Derek only once Oct. 2. I did work on my own, but surely not at the level that Derek pushes me.
We continue to change up the sessions to work toward my goal. I must kick myself into high gear if I expect to reach my goals of better health, less medications and more energy.
The other goal I am focused on is winning the FIT Challenge. The results of the last month will be published Oct. 12 in the FIT section.
I hope I stay a little ahead, but Annette and Ellyn are still pushing forward with their sights on winning the FIT Challenge.
I continue to receive many comments on my journey toward better health. I did see several people that had not seen me since the first of the year and they were surprised at my new and improved appearance. I am always pleased to report to people that I am getting healthier - and that is truly the best result of the FIT Challenge.
