The month of October is flying by and we are down to the last two months of the FIT Challenge. I am pleased with my progress, but I still have a ways to go to make my goal.
This past month seems to be a month of ups and downs with my weight loss. I'm making progress, but still not where I would like to be.
I have found myself snacking more than I should and this will be a challenge for me going forward. I like many think that I will have a little of this or that and the next thing I know I am eating too much.
I am pleased with my willpower most of the time, but I still fail myself now and then. I am feeling much better now and know the benefits of dieting and exercise.
This past week, I was only able to work with Derek Nimrichter of Bodi N Balance once due to our schedules. I did work out through the week but not at the intensity that Derek pushes me. I have a ways to go in controlling my health and being in better shape but I am farther along than I ever thought I would be a year ago.
I can't emphasize enough the importance of getting started with changing your life with diet and exercise. I will be going back to the doctor in November and can't wait to see the results of my blood work. I am hoping to reduce more of my medication and prove to myself that I can control my health without medication!
On Saturday, I re-roofed my small barn with the help of my brother, nephew and son-in-law. The day went well and the best thing for me was being able to move around and go up and down the ladder and scaffolding without a problem. I was tired, but at the end of the day I wasn't exhausted and it felt good to have the energy back.
