You should know that I’m on a path to bettering myself for in terms of health and fitness. Since getting on this journey, I’ve learned quite a bit about myself than I otherwise probably would’ve passed over or not have given much thought to. Even though I still have a bit of a ways to go, I am going to fight to make sure that I get as close as I can to it by August.
Why you say? Well, what’s happening in August?
Well for one thing, I’ll be starting school. It will have been a couple of years since I’ve been out of school and I just want to be my fiercest potential stepping onto that campus! And another thing is my birthday is in August, so you know you have to be right and ready for when you enter a whole new year right? Gotta be ready to embrace what the new year of changes will bring to you, right? I know I made a dedication to you all previously about making my weight loss changes public and being able to keep myself accountable which I know I’m doing fairly well with but I just need the mojo to get back to a burning fire so I can get ready for school. I would like for everything to be accomplished by the end of may or june, but I dunno. But we will put that in the works though!
My goals? My goal “weight” is 174, but since I don’t really focus about the scale that much anyways, I do have goal measurements. I want to have a size 36 inch hip, or whatever hip size is a general size 6 would be great enough for me. I’m not so worried about what size my waist will end up being, actually I’m okay with the size it is now, but if I could just get the lower half of it to even it out and flatten would be EPIC. Pretty much, those are my general goals. Very general I know, but I’ve been working off of general ideas anyway so it must be working for me! Today will be my last day of the 30 day shred. I don’t even know if it would be fair to even post my results (measurements) since it took me over….4 months? Yes, 4 months to complete it! Well, Jilian said the video wasn’t meant to be done everyday for thirty days straight but just to do 10 days of each level so that it would add up to thirty days. So I guess I’m okay, right? Maybe I will post my results because I did achieve a noticeable difference by using it though I feel it could have been much better had I been able to stick to it, if not for thirty days straight, at least 3 times a week. 😐 But hey, this wasn’t gonna be a perfect journey now was it?
So yes, anyways, that is my goal for August. I want to be as close to dream weight or ideal look as possible. I generally don’t rely on the scale THAT much because as I’ve seen, I’ve been the same weight range (about 184-186) for about two or three months now, but my measurements have gone down considerably and now I think I’m able to get into a size 8 pair of jeans!! I will report back here for my April month check ins because my goal for the end of April was to be able to fit into single digit sized jeans.
Anyways, that’s it. I know I can do it this time! I’ve got a deadline to hit!
