Hello ladies. Welcome to another edition of EM:ME hosted by the fabulous Amber. Looking to get healthy, and need some support and encouragement? Then you should definitely hop on over to Amber's and check it out!
I don't have a lot of progress to report this week. No loss. No gain. I'm feeling a little frustrated at my stand still. My exercise hasn't been as consistent as I'd like, but I have been able to increase my jogging time and walking speed, thus increasing my over all distance on my treadmill workout. I guess that's something.
I know my inconsistency in exercising is because of my increasingly bad habit of staying up too late (er, early). I can't remember the last time I went to bed before midnight...and it's catching up to me. I know that on the days I'm too tired to get myself motivated to get on the treadmill, that's why. I just need to make a commitment to get to bed...no excuses.
"Who is your biggest supporter/motivator in your weight loss? Do you have anyone around you that tries to sabotage you by "talking" you in to eating the not so good stuff?"
Well, I have to say that I probably get the most encouragement from this weekly feature. I love all the positive feedback and support I get each week. My husband is supportive, but it's hard, because I know that his love for me is unconditional, whether I lose weight or not. I know he wants me to know this and so he just doesn't say much either way. He doesn't want me to feel pressured that if I don't succeed he'll be disappointed in me...so he just doesn't say anything.
As far as sabotage...I'd have to say my brother! You see we have this thing. When he was trying to give up caffeine, I would give him a 6 pack of Mt. Dew for his birthday...stuff like that!
Now that I'm trying to watch what I eat, he'll bring in some scrumptious dessert, eat it in front of me and make "mmmm" sounds while he eats. It's just a brother thing.
It's all good though...it's all in fun. That's just how our relationship is. He's trying to eat healthier now though...not because he needs to lose weight, but he just wants to be healthy, so mostly we "abstain" from the good food together!
I hope you all had a fabulous week and can't wait to come see how you're all doing. Wish me luck on more rest and more consistent exercise this week!
And don't forget that Mod Podge Mania is less than 1 week away! It will be Tuesday, June 30...so please come back and link up your projects!
